Junkadelic Brass Band (WA) / Honk!Oz 2019 Afterparty
It’s two awesome events in one – the Honk!Oz Afterparty + Junkadelic Brass Band’s (WA) album launch! And it’s free!
Junkadelic Brass Band have finally taken their high-energy performances off the street and into the studio, with their first album, Travelling in the Footsteps.
Hailing from Perth, Western Australia, Junkadelic Brass Band combines a smokin’ hot six-piece brass section and sassy soul vocals with hard-hitting percussion using recycled instruments to create one of the most unique brass band experiences in the Southern Hemisphere – guaranteed to have you shakin’ what your mama gave you on the dance floor.
They have performed at major festivals across Australia, including WA’s Fairbridge Festival, Perth International Arts Festival and Southbound and internationally in Seattle, Portland, San Francisco and Hong Kong.
Junkadelic was founded in 2002 as a junk percussion group, and quickly grew to become a stage-based funk band, adding a horn section in 2010. Today, Junkadelic Brass Band draws on strong connections to New Orleans street music culture, combining traditional second-line and funk grooves with latin and hip-hop flavours to get you down on the D-floor. Rowdy vocals round out the band’s explosive original compositions to create brass band music with a bend in it.
Now, after sixteen years, Junkadelic has evolved to form the Junkadelic Brass Band and have recorded their first album and will be taking it on tour.
