Hackney Colliery Band
A 9 piece brass, Funk, Hip-Hop marching-band, to rival The Young Blood Brass Band and blow your mind. East London’s Hackney Colliery Band are leading the charge in a groundswell of new groups reinventing the all-acoustic brass band for the 21st century. Mining musical nuggets from an array of genres, their setlist is as diverse as the London borough that gave them their name. Their highly acclaimed 2012 debut Common Decency received worldwide airplay including an almost full house at the BBC with plays across BBC Radio 1, 2, 3 and 6Music. Live, they’ve taken their unique collision of styles everywhere from Kosovo to the Closing Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics where they performed to a global audience of 1 billion! Constantly striving to explore new musical horizons, the Hackney Colliery Band have yielded some truly special moments with collaborations with artists as diverse as Amy Winehouse, Eliza Doolittle, the Urban Voices Collective gospel choir, and hip hop band Lazy Habits.
