Brassroots was formed late in the Autumn of 2008 among the streets of East London. The band is an 8- piece horn and percussion ensemble comprising of an impressive groove and energy charged group of musicians from a myriad of different countries and backgrounds including England, Israel, France, Greece and America. Eager to establish a proper brassband scene in London, Brassroots quickly set about bringing unbelievable REAL, LIVE instrumental sound back into mainstream music by presenting popular music in a unique format. Brassroots aim to change the way you experience live music. Forever. The group has already unleashed knock-out shows to sold out audiences at Scala King's Cross (their first show!), Glastonbury, Secret Garden Party, Festibelly and a chop bustin' 7 shows Bestival! Brassroots has blazed a trail in the London music scene in less than a year of existence. Earning radio play on BBC Radio 1 with Rob da Bank, BBC Kent with Sean Rowley, Magic and Choice FM with Chris Philips and Calvin Francis and KCRW's Jeremy Sole in LA makes 2010 looks even more promising. Leaving fans screaming at the top or their lungs for more is their calling card and the band is poised to bring a brand new energy and appeal to a tragically underrated genre.
