Kick Ass Brass
Kick Ass Brass is the ultimate funky brass band. Inspired by the legendary Tower of Power, Kick Ass deliver funk with steaming horns and Eleisha May´s amazing vocals. With ten musicians on stage, its big, it’s brassy and kicks ass in the best possible way.
The band includes some of the UK’s top jazz/soul/funk instrumentalists. For example, Julian Stringle (alto sax), Richard Exall (tenor sax), Amy Roberts (baritone sax), Ben Cummings (trumpet) and Ian Bateman (trombone) provide the funky horns. Craig Milverton (keyboards), Dominic Ashworth (guitars), Al Swainger (bass) and Nick Millward (drums/vocals) add a banging rhythm section. Whilst Eleisha May her own distinctive brand of fairy dust to the party and just keeps it coming.
Their repertoire digs deep into Tower of Power and the soul classics of James Brown, Earth Wind & Fire and Curtis Mayfield. What a way to kick off the festival on a Friday night!
