Big Smoke Brass – UK are changing perceptions of brass instruments with their hard-hitting, high-energy performances of well-known pop tunes unlike anything you have heard before. Formed in 2017, the totally unique line up of 4 trumpets, sousaphone and drums creates a canvas for timeless songs to be reimagined into infectiously feel-good tunes which are perfect for getting the party started.
The band was created by 6 friends whilst studying together at music college in London. Their repertoire of arrangements is arranged by the band and combines with sharp presentation (the band’s signature coloured braces) and tight choreography. Their eye-catching performances have included celebrity events, festival appearances, live radio broadcasts as well as a busy schedule of private events such as weddings and parties.
Big Smoke Brass – UK have initiated a variety of different projects since their formation including collaborations with singers, dancers and choreographers, performance of classical works at famous venues around London, a West End club residency as well as recent trip to the recording studio to create their debut EP ‘Launch’. Musical influences for the band come from groups such as Mnozil Brass, Youngblood Brass Band and Lucky Chops.
