Bollywood Brass Band

May 19 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
  • This event has passed.

The Bollywood Brass Band is the UK’s pioneering Indian-style wedding band, playing the great tunes and compulsively danceable rhythms of the most popular music in the world.

In this special show, the Band celebrate RD Burman, the master of 70s and 80s funky Bollywood soundtracks – with video projections from the original Bollywood films.

Wielding saxophones, tabla, dhol drums and a colossal sousaphone, the BBB are one of the most colourful, joyful and exhilarating acts around.

Six hot horns and three funky drummers blend the hottest Hindi film hits with riotous Indian wedding music and Punjabi beats.

Robin Denselow, Guardian

The band plunders the Bollywood canon and throws Brazilian samba, Punjabi drumming and British cheek into the Bhangra mix…With the BBB formation blowing, jostling for space and delivering the occasional sizzling solo, this was a sensory assault that oozed good humour and sent people noisily into the night
