Stomptown Brass – Locomotive EP – Press Release
The 9-piece urban street-funk outfit, Stomptown Brass, are set to cap a whirlwind first year with the release of their debut EP on February 12th, accompanied by an Irish tour. Based in Dublin, Stomptown Brass have quickly become known for bringing a potent blend of raw energy and complex musical arrangements to venues around Ireland. A spate of standout gigs in the Sugar Club, Whelan’s, Vicar Street, Electric Picnic, Longitude and Indiependence has secured their reputation as a band that consistently brings crowds to their feet with funky high-energy original compositions. Stomptown Brass began life just over a year ago when a group of like-minded brass players, known to each other from crossing paths with the likes of Trinity Orchestra, Hozier, The Riptide Movement, Kormac’s Big Band, Tandem Felix, Attention Bebe, among others, decided they wanted to do something different: find a way of merging the pure, direct energy of street-performing New Orleans brass bands with the subtle complexity of contemporary compositional arrangements.
