On Jun 6th 2014, 7.30pm at Outwood WMC, Ledger Land, Wakefield, WF1 2NS

Lofthouse Brass Band have teamed up with North Yorkshire’s only contemporary New Orleans inspired brass band, The New York Brass Band to bring you an evening of entertainment at 7.30pm on Friday 6th June. Join them at Outwood WMC, Ledger Lane, Wakefield, WF1 2NS to see Lofthouse Brass Band perform a short concert before New York Brass Band take to the stage.

The New York Brass Band is a powerhouse, 7-piece band, with a line up of trumpets, sax, trombones, percussion and sousaphone. The band take inspiration from contemporary New Orleans musicians, but have a repertoire that ranges from Marvin Gaye to George Michael, from Cee-Lo Green to Stevie Wonder, from Daft Punk to Lady Gaga, with some funky, gritty northern originals thrown in for good measure.

The band was formed in November 2010 by James Lancaster, and quickly established itself as a dynamic, flexible band who can perform outside acoustically at a drinks reception or street event, or amplified on a festival stage or club. No gimmicks, no backing tracks, no auto tune, this is music that gets people dancing and a band who make the audience feel part of the show.

The past three years have been amazing for NYBB, with numerous festival performances including consecutive years at the legendary Cork Jazz Festival and the surreal Secret Garden Party. Many wedding parties have jumped to the sound of the NYBB, while repeat bookings at The Wardrobe and Hifi in Leeds, and Richmix London are testament to the appeal of this hip young band.

This is an event NOT to be missed! Tickets are priced at £8 and can be purchased from Lofthouse Brass Band’s website at or by calling the band’s secretary on 07876 800929.

Book soon as tickets are limited and are selling fast!
