Born out of a desire to play music that appealed to the feet as much as the ears, Hackney Colliery Band have rapidly gained a reputation for reinventing the brass sound of the 21st century with a tour de force of trumpets, trombones, saxes, marching percussion and electronics.
Inspired by rock and electronica as they are New Orleans marching bands and the traditional British brass bands to which their name pays homage, the 9-piece have gained an army of loyal supporters through their undeniable party charm at festivals and venues across the globe, including support from Lauren Laverne, Gilles Peterson, Craig Charles, Huey Morgan, Jamie Cullum, Rob Da Bank and John Kennedy.
