Leeds Jazz Festival event: New York Brass Band


@Briggate Saturday 20 July 1pm onwards

New York Brass Band are a contemporary New Orleans inspired brass band hailing from the ancient streets of York. The band has been burning up festivals since 2011.

A powerful team of some of Yorkshire’s finest musicians, they pack an arsenal of percussion, sax, trumpets, trombones and sousaphone with a varied repertoire at their fingertips without a note of music in sight. This is a band that works without gimmicks, auto tune or backing tracks, we blur the line between band and audience by inviting the crowd to become part of the show and ending the performance in the audience, dancing on the tables or congaing under the stars.

Their repertoire is a broad range of styles from jazz to pop, reggae to funk and New Orleans to ska.

They will be starting off in Briggate in Leeds City Centre at 1pm and then making their way down to the Wardrobe where they will be performing a set a the festival stage
