Riot Jazz Brass Band

Stirring up a hot-pot of peace-lovin' aggro-jazz and re-interpreted dancefloor bangers, Riot Jazz Brass Band are a 9-piece combo that catapult the spirit of New Orleans into the 21st Century. Fronted by the prodigious MC CHUNKY, these brass-wielding super-heroes have infected ear-holes, dance floors and festival fields far and wide with their brass-heavy-aggro jazz, hip-hop samples, funked-up favourites, re-interpreted dubstep, drum 'n' bass and infectious sounds that never fail to excite.  After a packed out gig in 2016, and sets at Glastonbury, Soundwave, Kendal Calling, London Jazz Festival Womad, they are back with original tunes from their new album.

A forthright and in-your-face sound “packing a hefty punch” (The Guardian).
