What sets STOMPTOWN BRASS apart from any other act in Ireland is the originality of their sound, combined with the unmistakable energy of brass.
Since their inception in late 2015, STOMPTOWN BRASS have shocked, delighted, and entertained audiences across Ireland and abroad. Through numerous festival appearances and themed shows, they have built and maintained their status as one of the country’s most unique and dynamic ensemble acts. Blending the sounds of funk and blues with a raucous cacophony of powerful driving rhythm, the impressive band line-up of two Drummers, two Trombones, two Trumpets, one Sax and a big dirty Tuba are known to put on a serious show!
Off the back of their debut EP “Locomotive” and their single “I Got a Plan”, the band have performed numerous times at Electric Picnic, Longitude, Kaleidoscope, Sea Sessions, Indiependence and Another Love Story, along with sell-out headline shows at Pepper Canister Church, The Chocolate Factory, The Sugar Club, Cyprus Avenue and Dolan’s among others.
More recently, STOMPTOWN BRASS surprised audiences with a unique theatrical collaboration – ‘Requiem for the Truth’ – alongside Collapsing Horse Theatre Company, taking on the audacious task of holding a New Orleans Jazz Funeral, for the truth.
Breaking new ground, the band sold out back-to-back shows at Dublin Fringe 2017, Norway Fringe 2018, Cork Jazz Festival 2018, Waterford Imagine Arts Festival 2018, and returned for two self-produced shows at Pepper Canister Church in Dublin.
This Autumn, STOMPTOWN BRASS are back on tour with a fresh sound, a tighter line-up, and a brand new set of cinematic brass-centric tunes, along with some surprises and party favourites to shake your bum to!
Genuinely a very special thanks to David MaCartney (Stadium Manager, Irish Athletic Boxing Association) at the National Stadium on the South Circular Road for their generous use of their facilities when we approached them with the idea for the shoot. Does the invite still stand to perform the album launch at the stadium?
