ABOUT US

A note about availability: we are all versatile professional musicians playing with many bands, so we can't easily fill in the availability calender. If you are interested in booking us do get in touch and I will reply promptly.

The Brass Volcanoes are a funky, energetic New Orleans style brass jazz band from London. Brass and saxophones backed by drums and a sousaphone play a repertoire conjuring up the sounds from New Orleans, Latin America, Caribbean, Eastern European and more. The sound is celebratory and joyous, appealing to all ages. Children, teenagers, middle agers and old agers seem to respond alike, often getting up to dance to the enticing rhythms.

Since forming in 2007 the band has built up quite a following. They have appeared at festivals across the country – from Cornwall to Durham and many places in between, including regular appearances in London at the famous Ronnie Scott's Club. Individually the musicians have played internationally with a multitude of bands. The Brass Volcanoes brings them together in a fabulous mixing pot of fun, spontaneity and funkyness! They can often tailor their set to suit particular occasions: they have a selection of numbers appropriate for a bar mitzvah, some pop covers, songs appropriate for New Orleans style funerals etc.

"I wanted to email you to let you know how fantastic the band were. The first dance was a magical moment and they were so upbeat, tight and fantastic. They judged the tone perfectly and made the whole evening. What a lovely group - we can't thank you enough."

"I wanted to thank you all for your wonderful music on Sunday. It was so full

of life and joy and I feel it literally made the party! Having you play in

the garden was joyous and it gave everyone such a great feeling of

celebration and gave the day a fantastic vibe!"
