Hypnotic Brass Ensemble Announce Oxford Art Factory Show

Written by Mike Hohnen on June 5, 2012

While in town for Splendour in the Grass, Chicago’s Hypnotic Brass Ensemble will be making an appearance at Sydney’s Oxford Arts Factory on Sunday, July 29.

The ensemble, made up of 8 brothers from Chicago’s infamous South Side area, first played our shores for Harvest Festival in 2011 and brought with them an uplifting, exhilarating, infectious live performance that left punters wanting more.

Infusing smooth jazz, hip hop and soul, the brothers learned their way around instruments from as young as three years old, their father playing a key role in this.

From sidewalks and subways, to working with artists such as Mos Def and Gorillaz, Hypnotic Brass Ensemble have come a long way and have reinvented the brass band in the process, giving the concept new meaning in 2012.
