Brass Knuckle Band

Street Funk

Brass Knuckle Brass Band is a sweaty late-night party for anyone who knows a sousaphone will always be tougher than a bass guitar. Think whiskey dripping from trombone spit-valves; drummers with callouses on their callouses.

Think a crusty bari sax belting from the gutter and you're starting to get the idea.

First thrown together for a one-off Wednesday night show, BKBB has opened for funk heavyweights Charles Bradley and Fred Wesley, and played at Falls Festival and Woodford Folk Festival. Following a debut EP in 2013, the band collaborated with hip-hop young gun Citizen Kay on the single “Raise a Glass”, which became a Triple J favourite.
