Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, Scala London

Brass band blows its audience away with jazz, hip-hop and funk

Concentrated bursts of power from Chicago: Hypnotic Brass Ensemble
It’s my habit as a music critic to take notes at shows such as this: nothing extensive, just words and phrases jotted down to jog the memory when it comes to writing the thing up afterwards. Looking back at my scraps of paper for this, the London leg of the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble’s UK tour, I can see only a handful of scrawled words: “war”, “party”, and, er, “dum dum da dum dum dum”. I think I was having too much fun to bother with writing much down. It was that kind of night.
