The Brass Funkeys are an 8-piece powerhouse of funked-up, New Orleans jazz. And they're coming to Portobello! Fresh from Aberdeen Jazz Festival, we are delighted to present their acoustic marching band show - a cheeky pit stop on their journey home to London.
Relaxed and unamplified, this is an ideal live gig experience for all the family! With support from local youth players from Brass Blast, and Sunday Get-Down resident selector DJ Dynamite (age 14!)
Licensed pop-up bar serving quality teas, coffees, snacks & beverages from The Skylark.
Doors 3pm > Brass Blast 3.30pm > The Brass Funkeys 4pm & 5pm (with interval) > 6pm close.
Please note: This event is a mix of seats & standing - arrive early if you're keen to sit down.
The Brass Funkeys draw from the traditions of New Orleans with skilled musicianship, rolling from
spirited second line revelry to soulful jazz funeral marches and pumping brass driven funk. Reggae,
DnB, gypsy, swing and Latin influences are exposed in an eclectic live show revealing a band bursting
at the seams with ideas and infectious energy.
