Broken Brass Ensemble combines the traditional New Orleans brass with hiphop, balkan, funk, fanfare (and much more) into a blazing mixture of energy. The eight BBE members are all very young and talented musicians who combine swinging brass with tight percussion. All their work are originals, though the band isn’t ashamed to rock the audience with a surprising cover every now and then. Check out this rather amusing, yet well formed cover of Macklemore’s “Thrift Shop”
After the Broken Brass Ensemble rehearsal we had a couple of hours to spare, so we arranged one of the biggest hits of the moment, ‘Thrift Shop’ by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis for a brass band. We were having fun with it, so we decided we’d might as well make a one-shot-video with a cheap camera we had with us to record the rehearsal.
The single for the track is done! It will be available from April 13th on iTunes, Spotify, Deezer and everywhere else!
New EP out June 1st!
