The Hackney Colliery Band will bring its 21st Century big brass sound to the Cambridge Junction on November 4.

A tour de force of trumpets, trombones, saxes, sousaphone, marching percussion and electronics, the band

is as inspired by contemporary rock and electronica as they are New Orleans marching bands and the traditional British

brass bands to which their name pays homage.

Formed in 2008 out of a desire to play music that appealed to the feet as much as to the ears, the band has rapidly gained an

army of loyal supporters, including radio support from Lauren Laverne, Gilles Peterson, Craig Charles, Huey Morgan, Jamie

Cullum, Rob Da Bank and John Kennedy.

Since the release of their eponymous debut in 2011, the nine-piece has blown their way into the public consciousness with their energetic and passionate live shows, amassing fans worldwide and reinventing the brass band sound for the modern age.

But the band are never content to rest on their laurels or to keep things simple, and are keen collaborators. Over the years

they’ve run a series of experimental music nights at Ronnie Scott’s, a weekly new material night in venues across London, and

worked with collaborators including Amy Winehouse, Fyfe Dangerfield, Eliza Doolittle, Jamie Cullum, Andreya Triana, Williams

Fairey Band, Rhodes and DJ Yoda.

Tickets are £17 in advance from the box office on 01223 511511 or online: www.junction.co.uk.
