East London’s Hackney Colliery Band continue to reinvent the brass band sound and they bring their unique sound to the Tower Complex in Great Yarmouth on Saturday, April 29.

A tour de force of trumpets, trombones, saxes, sousaphone, marching percussion and electronics, the band are as inspired by contemporary rock and electronica as they are New Orleans marching bands and the traditional British brass bands. Formed in 2008 out of a desire to play music that appealed to the feet as much as to the ears, the band has rapidly gained an army of loyal supporters.

New LP Sharpener has powerful new electronic elements and a dance floor sensibility adding to jazz, rock and soul for which they are known. They come to Yarmouth as part of The South London Soul Train Goes East tour.

They performed a set as part of the closing ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics.
