Chicago hip-hop brass outfit Hypnotic Brass Ensemble return to Bristol for an explosive live show. The 8 horn-playing brothers – all sons of pioneering jazz trumpeter Kelan Phil Cohran (Sun Ra’s Arkestra) – have worked with the likes of Prince, Mos Def and Gorrilaz. Raucous and red-hot, the HBE sound summons the spirit of New Orleans big-band jazz, shot through with rap, funk and hip-hop, and moments of “fervent and prayerful beauty” (All About Jazz).

Plus support from Ishmael Ensemble


Advanced ticket sales have now closed. Limited tickets will be available on the door.

Ages 16+

This is a standing Colston Hall Presents and Bam!Bam!Bam! event at Fiddlers, Willway St, Bristol BS3 4BG
