BRASS KNUCKLE BRASS BAND E.P. LAUNCH W/ THE ANSAH BROTHERS
Brass Knuckle Brass Band are putting some new music into the world, and we want to party with y'all to celebrate. We'll be playing a set full of never-before-heard BKBB material, including cuts from our E.P. 'You Know How It Is', dropping in June 2018.
Supporting BKBB will be WORLD CLASS hip-hop duo The Ansah Brothers. It's gonna be wild. It's gonna be raw. It's gonna finish at a reasonable time.

BKBB is a sweaty late-night party for anyone who knows sousaphones are tougher than bass guitars. Think whiskey dripping from trombone spit-valves; think drummers with callouses on their callouses. Think a crusty bari sax belting at the Big Easy from the wrong hemisphere and you're getting the idea.
First thrown together for a one-off Wednesday night jazz gig, BKBB has performed at Falls Festival and Woodford Folk Festival, and opened for international heavyweights Jon Cleary, Charles Bradley and Fred Wesley. Equally comfortable playing New Orleans second lines and heavy hip-hop beats, the group has become the go-to live band for the Canberra's best rappers, performing and recording with Citizen Kay, Coda Conduct, Hayds and Roshambo.
\\ THE ANSAH BROTHERS //
Hugely successful solo artists Citizen Kay and Genesis Owusu come together as THE ANSAH BROTHERS. Dubbed by Vice 'the brothers changing Australian rap', this sibling supergroup put on the most infectious live hip-hop set you'll see in 2018.
