NORTHERN MONKEY BRASS BAND
Northern Monkey Brass Band (formerly known as Horn Dogs) are a deeply funky collective of some of the finest drum and brass players in the North East of England.
Inspired by Rebirth Brass Band, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Youngblood Brass Band to name a few (as well as that bit at the beginning of Live And Let Die), they formed at the beginning of 2009. The band have rapidly earned a reputation for lively, energetic shows featuring original music written specifically for the band, classics of the New Orleans brass band genre and well known covers in a way you’ve never heard them.
In 2016, BBC Radio 3's Jazz Line Up broadcast a performance from Gateshead International Jazz Festival to much acclaim.
Band members have worked with Sting, Jimmy Nail, Kathryn Williams, The Unthanks, The New York Dolls, Maximo Park, Tim Garland, The Drifters, Johnny Dickinson, Nitin Sawney, Therapy?, The Matinee Orchestra, Bob Mintzer, Andy Sheppard, Nitin Sawnhey, Snowboy, Grimethorpe Brass Band, Beccy Owen, Nick Pride and the Pimptones and Rachel McShane among others.
Whether they’re busking on the street, playing at festivals, parties or an intimate bar gig, Northern Monkey Brass Band show you a good time.
