Drum and brass collective Old Dirty Brasstards are on a mission to bring brass music to new audiences. They play a mixture of pop, rock and R&B covers, and in this special performance they include an entertaining explanation of the science of the brass instrument.

Since forming in 2012, Old Dirty Brasstards have gained an enviable reputation for their bold and innovative approach, on a mission to introduce brass music to brand new audiences.

The tweed-clad 10 piece brass and drum collective comprises some of London's top freelance musicians, playing an eclectic mix of pop, R&B and soul covers that never fail to get any dance floor jumping with joy!

ODB have brought their uniquely entertaining and energetic style to major music festivals across the UK, including Bestival, Glastonbury, Latitude and Secret Garden Party, as well as venues such as Fabric, the Forum and KOKO with residencies at Brooklyn Bowl and Shoreditch Blues Kitchen.
