Tom McGuire & The Brassholes

Armed with bona fide street credibility, having started out busking in Glasgow during 2014’s Commonwealth Games, this 8 piece eclectic modern soul funk band is packing out huge venues with their tight sound and off-the-wall antics – a strange mix of Lumberjack-looks, some of the best horn players in Scotland and ferociously funky music. 

This is a standing gig.
