Brass Impact Big Band
- Versatile Big Band playing jazz, funk, soul & swing.
Prices range from £1500 to £5000
Brass Impact are one of Scotland's most dynamic jazz ensembles, offering a unique presentation of big band jazz that is entirely new, fresh and exciting.
Playing a wide range of music in the style of the ever popular big bands, their main aim is to provide our members and audiences with the opportunity to experience big band like they've never heard it before.
Their horn section, made up of 5 trumpets, 3 mellophones, 1 Tenor Saxophone, and 4 baritones gives them a very unique and exciting sound.
This unique sound comes from the use of non-traditional big band instruments such as 'forward facing' baritones (providing the trombone voice) and the very distinctive mellophones, which produce a sound similar to that of the mellophoniums used by the Stan Kenton Orchestra in the early 1960's.
Mixed cleverly with the more traditional trumpets and saxophones, the baritones and mellophones allow them to add that extra 'kick' to the big swing numbers, as well as a rich, warm and luscious sound for the most delicate of ballads and vocal arrangements.
Their unique brass sound is fused together with the drive and excitement of their 6 piece rhythm section, with the fabulous vocal talents of brother and sister duo, Pat Keating and Iain Ewing adding the finishing touches to their presentation.
Their list of previous clients is a testament to how popular their unique sound has become, they include:
Jools Holland Jam House
Edinburgh International Jazz Festival
City of Derry Jazz Festival
Celtic Football Club
Marie Curie Cancer Care
and many more...
Where are they based?
Based in Glasgow but play regularly throughout Scotland and across the UK.
