Renegade Brass Band, hailing from the northern English city of Sheffield, combine 8 horns, 2 percussionists, a scratch DJ and live MC, to form a raw brass mixture of Jazz, Hip-Hop and Funk in their unstoppable, high-energy live shows.
Having played packed out gigs at venues around the UK, and alongside artists including De La Soul, Grandmaster Flash, Public Enemy & Busta Rhymes, and at festivals including Glastonbury, Secret Garden Party, Soundwave Croatia & Boomtown, Renegade Brass Band have established themselves as the country’s premiere hip-hop brass band outfit.
With previous collaborations on prominent labels Tru Thoughts & Department H with acts like Rodney P, Diesler and The Herbaliser, the band are now touring their new album ‘Totems’ recorded live at Abbey Road Studios – Expect beats, brass, vinyl and lyrics fused together in this very British take on how a brass band should sound!
