A Community Network for Bowes Park and Bounds Green
The Brass Monkeys have just reformed with a mix of some of the UK’s most exciting players to explore the textures and timbres that a group of excellent improvisers can bring to this music.
The repertoire is half and half original and a range of material from all kinds of sources including tunes by Herbie Nicols, Bill Frisell, Lillian Armstrong, Archie Shepp, Jonas Gwangwa, Lester Bowie, Taj Mahal, Thelonious Monk and Dudu Pukwana.
Over the years ensemble members have worked with (to name a few) Joan Armatrading, Lianne Carroll, Elvis Costello, Julia Doyle, Joe Gallivan, Joe Jackson, Chris MacGregor's Brotherhood of Breath, Louis Moholo Moholo, Laura Mvula, Maggie Nicols, Natural Causes, Courtney Pine, Dudu Pukwana, The People Band, Chis Rea, John Russell, Paul Rutherford, John Stevens, The Style Council, Keith Tippett, Jah Wobble and Robert Wyatt.
Doors at 7pm, music from 8pm.
