New York Brass Band are North Yorkshire’s only contemporary New Orleans inspired brass band. Hailing from the ancient streets of York the band has been rocking weddings, burning up festivals and smashing sports events since 2011. In 2015 NYBB played over 200 gigs.
The band is a powerful team of some of Yorkshire’s finest musicians packing an arsenal of percussion, sax, trumpets, trombones and sousaphone with a varied repertoire of over 60 tunes at their fingertips without a note of music in sight. This is a band that works without gimmicks, auto tune or backing tracks, we blur the line between band and audience by inviting the crowd to become part of the show and ending the performance in the audience, dancing on the tables or congaing under the stars.
Our repertoire is a broad range of styles from jazz to pop, reggae to funk and New Orleans to ska.
