Brass Volcanoes

The Brass Volcanoes use 5 mad horn players in front supported by a gigantic Souzaphone and a bonkers Italian called Bubu on drums. They are professional jazz musicians who have arranged or written all their own material, drawing from every imaginable source; New Orleans Mardi Gras, Balkan folk, Klezmer, Afro-Cuban, Soul and Funk, you name it, they've nicked it, twisted it in their warped imaginations and driven perfectly respectable people to tear off their clothes and dance to it. They can play on stage or march about the place, so if you need a wandering New Orleans band to lead you to the church or go about aggravatin' your guests, this could be the band for you. They also sing!

The band consists of two trumpets, trombone and two saxophones (alto and tenor) backed by souzaphone and drums.
