Central Arts 16th March 9:00pm

Stomptown Brass will explode onto the Central Arts stage this St. Paddys Eve, bringing you their take on urban street funk with their uniquely funkly sound!!

Recently finisihing up a hugely successful Irish Tour where they sold out venues such as The Sugar Club, 2016 was the year that they came into their own, and 2017 is set to be a year of global domination.  With the release of their debut EP, the 9-piece urban street funk band have outgrown their superficial image as merely a fun festival act, and revealed musical ambitions far loftier in scope.

Stomptown Brass, two years old now, began when a group of like-minded brass players, known to each other from crossing paths with the likes of Trinity Orchestra, Hozier, The Riptide Movement, Kormac’s Big Band, Tandem Felix, Attention Bebe, among others, decided they wanted to do something different: find a way of merging the direct energy of street-performing New Orleans brass bands with the subtle complexity of contemporary compositional arrangements. With Locomotive (EP) Stomptown Brass capture the natural energy of their raucous live performances, while simultaneously doing justice to the rhythmic complexity and precision of their compositions.

Doors at 9:00pm Over 18’s Event – ID Required Tickets available here
