Hypnotic Brass Ensemble are an eight-strong cohort of horn-playing brothers (plus one unrelated drummer) who take their stylistic cues from jazz, funk, hip-hop and strains of world music. They started out playing on the streets of America’s cities, selling their self-released CDs and gradually building a loyal following and an international profile which recently went stratospheric their collaboration on the latest Gorillaz album Plastic Beach.

The youngest of some 23 children, the brothers are the offspring of different mothers, but are all sons of jazz trumpeter and composer Kelan Phil Cohran (a member of Sun Ra’s Arkestra and co-founder of the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians).

While steeped in this prog jazz history they very much reflect today’s street music infusing imaginative jazz arrangements with a hip-hop/funksta sensibility. Incredible live and very, very cool – catch this amazing band while you can.

This event will begin at 8pm but our Picturehouse Cafe Bar is open for delicious food and drinks from 5.30pm. Offer! Book your meal in advance and get free ‘lucky dip’ tickets for a future concert – click here now for details
