Thought you knew all about British brass bands? Think again! Hackney Colliery Band have jammed with Amy Winehouse, worked with the likes of Eliza Doolittle and Jamie Cullum, played to 80,000 people (and 600 million TV viewers) at the closing ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics, and have even launched their own speciality sausage!
With a tongue-in-cheek, yet respectful, nod to the great tradition of British brass bands, Hackney Colliery's influences are as diverse as the London borough that gave them their name. Inspired by New Orleans marching bands, Balkan beats, contemporary hip-hop, dubstep and R&B, sizzling Latin brass, African polyrhythms and high-octane rock [phew!], they bring UK colliery brass band tradition bang up to date. Not least by dropping into their set random covers from the likes of Adele, The Prodigy and Kanye West!
They’ve released five completely sold-out singles, two hugely acclaimed albums, and their live shows have gained a reputation for being some of the best and busiest in the business… just take a look at the breathless quotes below for proof. Without a vocalist, guitars, keyboards, samplers or drum machines, Hackney Colliery Band rely on nothing but air, drum skins and shiny metal (and occasionally a megaphone) to create a huge sound, striking visual presence and - above all - an incredible party atmosphere!
Oh, and that sausage? The Hackney Colliery Banger, which we’re told goes down a treat with their new Bold as Brass real ale… almost 60,000 pints of which were sold in London last winter. Apparently their next culinary collaboration is in the works – in the meantime, join them at ARC for a night of extraordinary modern brass band party tunes!
