Horndog Brass Band


Horndog Brass Band first growled into life at the debut Kelburn Garden Party festival near Largs the summer of 2009, drawn from members of Scotland’s left-field talent gathered there including representatives of Bombskare, Orkestra del Sol, Black Cat, The Banana Sessions and Hidden Orchestra. After stealing the main stage’s audience and taking them for an impromptu walkabout gig in the woods surrounding Kelburn Castle, it was clear that the Horndogs’ sound is one which connects instantly with fans of many genres Read more on Last.fm
Horndog Brass Band first growled into life at the debut Kelburn Garden Party festival near Largs the summer of 2009, drawn from members of Scotland’s left-field talent gathered there including representatives of Bombskare, Orkestra del Sol, Black Cat, The Banana Sessions and Hidden Orchestra. After stealing the main stage’s audience and taking them for an impromptu walkabout gig in the woods surrounding Kelburn Castle, it was clear that the Horndogs’ sound is one which connects instantly with fans of many genres, from funk and jazz through to hip hop and contemporary music. It is a sound to move feet, warm souls and put smiles on faces. Fuelled by this knowledge of a winning formula, the band hit the streets of Edinburgh during the Fringe, entertaining international audiences of all ages on the streets of the Old Town. It was also during the Edinburgh Festival that the band made their onstage debut to a 1200-strong audience at the Picturehouse venue, not with their own tunes but as backing band to former Dresden Dolls singer, Amanda Palmer.

Horndogs Andy, Tim and Jamie having guested on lead single ‘Leeds United’ from the critically acclaimed album ‘Who Killed Amanda Palmer’ in 2008, the full force of the band was applied to several more tracks for this one-off gig, including leading Amanda onstage through the crowd to open the gig in typically dramatic fashion. After a successful tour of the Scottish highlands to kickstart 2010, the band have had their first festival appearances at the Insider festival (Aviemore) and Edinburgh’s Meadows festival, and also provided red carpet entertainment at the launch of the Edinburgh Film Festival, where they entertained Sir Sean Connery with a personal performance, which soon ended up on BBC Scotland News, via YouTube... Horndog Brass Band’s repertoire is made up of fresh originals by musical directors Tom Pickles and Tom Donaldson, a wide range of brassed up cover versions ranging from Aerosmith to the Grange Hill theme tune, and some more ‘traditional’ funk with a New Orleans twist to pay tribute to the bands key influences, which include Dirty Dozen, Rebirth and Youngblood Brass Bands, Galactic, Lou Donaldson and Herbie Hancock. This eclectic approach is what Horndog Brass Band is all about – its members come from hugely varied musical backgrounds, but together they are one voice that speaks many languages. Adaptable and exciting, expect to see a lot more of them in 2010...
