£55 for 10 week term (discount available for 18-30s)

Combining the traditions of the original New Orleans brass bands with contemporary styles and sounds from R&B and Hip Hop. This street parade-based brass band is at the cutting edge of contemporary music in the North East. The combination of swing grooves, the second line feel and hip hop beats provides the foundation for a phat brass sound steeped in blues, boogie woogie, soul and jazz. Where the tradition of the New Orleans clave and legendary Krewes intersects with the vibe of hip hop and rap, The Nu-Groove Brass Band is bringing funky soul and swing to the banks of the Tyne. If you play trombone, trumpet, saxophone, clarinet, tuba, sousaphone, snare drum, bass drums or drum kit we want you to get funky with us.

Music Leader: Jason Holcomb
