MUSIC: Stomptown Brass are back as they prepare for a festival season full of brilliant music

Stompton Brass are back in Dublin on Saturday, April 25.

AFTER a blistering national tour last autumn, the eight-piece Urban Street Funk band Stomptown Brass are back with a brand new show to kick off the 2020 festival season.

Since their inception, Stomptown Brass have shocked and delighted audiences across Ireland and abroad.

Through countless festival appearances and themed shows, they have built and maintained a status as one of the country’s most unique and dynamic ensemble acts.

Blending cinematic soundscapes, driving rhythms and groovy drops, the impressive line-up of two drummers, two trombones, two trumpets, one sax and a big dirty Tuba are known to put on a serious racket to get any crowd on their feet.

When the band aren’t performing raucous slots at festivals such as Electric Picnic, Another Love Story, Kaleidoscope, Sea Sessions, Indiependence or Longitude, they’re known to create unique and spectacular theatrical productions to captivate fresh audiences.

In ‘Requiem for the Truth’, the band held a New Orleans jazz funeral, selling out back-to-back shows at Dublin Fringe, Norway Fringe, Cork Jazz and Waterford Imagine Arts festivals, along with two nights at Dublin’s Pepper Canister Church.

With ‘Curious Eyes & Ears’, the band produced a multi-faceted kids’ show that demonstrated the foundations of music theory.

They are back to kick off the campaign for their debut album (set to drop in 2021) with a headline show in the newly renovated Opium in Dublin on April 25. With even more drums and a brand new set of cinematic brassy tunes, this is not a show to miss!

Tickets (€15) are on sale now and cover price includes free entry to Whelan’s after the gig.
