Hackney Colliery Band
One of the world’s most unique brass bands, the Hackney Colliery band, perform in Worthing on 1st April.
Since the release of Hackney Colliery Band’s eponymous debut in 2011, these brass juggernauts have blown their way into the public consciousness with their cunning cover versions and catchy original recordings.
Over the last two years the band have earned themselves an army of loyal fans and have played at some very special events. From the live collaborations with the late Amy Winehouse and more recently Eliza Doolittle to headlining Manchester Jazz and Durham Brass festivals and being the only fully live band to play at the Closing Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics they haven’t paused for breath.
With a tongue in cheek, yet respectful, nod to the great tradition of British brass bands, Hackney Colliery Band’s influences are as diverse as the London borough that gave them their name. Mixing rock, afro-beat, hip hop, Balkan beats, contemporary jazz and soul, their latest album ‘Common Decency’ is a uniquely British take on the modern brass band sound.
Inspired by New Orleans marching bands, Balkan beats, contemporary hip-hop, dubstep and R&B, sizzling Latin brass, African polyrhythms and high-octane rock, the Hackney Colliery Band bring the UK colliery brass band tradition bang up to date. Drop in a few unexpected covers from the likes of Goldie, The Prodigy, Kanye West and even Toto, and you can be certain that an audience will have never heard anything quite like it.
Price: £19.50, Concessions £16.50
