Brassroots is a nine-piece horns and percussion ensemble from England, Israel, France, Greece and America, based in London. Starting out playing interesting versions of songs by Bowie, Radiohead and Beyonce, they have garnered support from Rob Da Bank and Gilles Peterson on Radio 1, slots at Glastonbury, Bestival and Lovebox, while Mr. Scruff has played them in mixes. With the growth in popularity of brass pop bands, on the back of the Hot 8 Brass Band and Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, over the past few years there's definitely a space in the music world for these guys. You'll be hearing a lot more about them.
For the moment you can pick up their 7 track debut E.P through iTunes or by mailing payment and address to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Check their myspace for details on Irish shows over the 4th, 5th and 6th of March.
