BATTLE OF THE BRASS BANDS!

Matt and Phreds love Brass... really LOVE brass. Over the years we have hosted some of the best, so when a new band rings us up saying "we can bring it at Matt and Phreds" we like to know if they are up to the challenge! To put them to the test, for one night only, we bring you two of the hottest Brass Bands in the North, face to face, trombone to trombone to battle it out.

Last Year's Battle saw Back Chat Brass demolish Twisted Tubes and Back Chat are back tonight to defend their title against Hyde Park Brass. We had a blast last year so if you like your brass get down to this Battle!

THE BATTLE features BACK CHAT BRASS, 8 of the North's best musicians from some of our favourite bands who have graced the M&P stage, (New York Brass Band, Portmanteau, Loud Noises), and this year HYDE PARK BRASS are hot on their heels for the title! Hyde Park Brass was born on the mean streets of Hyde Park, Leeds and has gone from strength to strength ever since. Let's see if they've got what it takes to BRASS BATTLE!

THE BATTLE GROUND:
4-7pm - Pre-BATTLE HAPPY HOUR | FREE PIZZA DEAL | 2-4-1 COCKTAILS
7.30pm - NQ BATTLE PARADE - The parade starts at the club, with both bands hitting the Northern Quarter before the main Battle!
7.45pm - THE BATTLE COMMENCES!

BACK CHAT BRASS
With a nod to their roots in pop, funk and hip hop, Back Chat Brass bring all your favourite songs to life. With five tireless horns, hammering percussion and bone shaking bass, this all star lineup brings the best of brass for a show to rival all others.
