Bio

Brass Knuckle Brass Band is a sweaty late-night party for anyone who knows a sousaphone will always be tougher than a bass guitar. Think whiskey dripping from trombone spit-valves; think drummers with callouses on their callouses. Think a crusty bari sax belting at Bourbon Street from the wrong hemisphere and you're getting the idea.

First thrown together for a one-off Wednesday night show, BKBB has opened for funk heavyweights Charles Bradley and Fred Wesley, and played at Falls Festival and Woodford Folk Festival.

The Ansah bros showing their flexibility once again with this rubbery feature spot with the horniest band in Canberra. That sounds wrong. But still mostly right.
