New York Brass Band are North Yorkshire’s only contemporary New Orleans inspired Brass Band. Hailing from the ancient streets of York the band are at the forefront of a funky brass revolution that is sweeping the UK. Inspired by Rebirth Brass Band, Soul Rebels, Hot 8, Youngblood and Brassroots, NYBB pack a powerful punch of relentless drums, rumbling tuba and wailing horns… nothing kicks a party into gear like the sound of a smokin’ New Orleans Mardi Gras Jazz Band

New York Brass Band is a powerhouse 7/8-piece, with a line-up of percussion, sax, trumpets, trombones, guitar and sousaphone. The band take its inspiration from contemporary New Orleans musicians, but have a repertoire that ranges from a full on set of party covers to sets of male and female vocals, to thrilling jazz and New Orleans sets. This is repertoire that’s evolved and been refined over a decade of gigs giving us music for any occasion.

The band was formed in November 2010 by James Lancaster, and quickly established itself as a dynamic, flexible band who can perform outside acoustically at a drinks reception or street event, or amplified on a festival stage or club. No gimmicks, no backing tracks, no auto tune, this is music that gets people dancing and a band who make the audience feel part of the show!
