The Hackney Colliery Band
Westgate WF1 1EP Wakefield
Starts Monday, 16/01/17 13:41
Hackney Colliery Band have had a simply phenomenal few years. From playing a 45 minte set at the Closing Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics and sets at the MOBO, Brit and Mercury awards to live sessions on the BBC Two, Sky Arts, BBC Radio 2, Jazz FM (UK) and worldwide airplay from many more, from collaborations with the likes of Amy Winehouse to selling out venues across the UK and Europe, these east London musicians haven't stopped.
Able to be both a powerful acoustic ensamble as they parade through the crowd, their brand new set for 2016 is also up-to-the-minute contemporary, with carefully crafted washes of electronics and drum machines adding to the raw power of brass and drums. With a setlist as diverse as the borough which gave them their name, expect an eclectic and completely unique mix of dancefloor-filling contemporary rock, jazz, soul and electronica. delicate one minute, powerfully energetic the next and always concluding in a huge party, an HCB show is as exciting as it is memorable, leading BBC Radio 2 to call HCB 'one of the best live abnds we have in thid country'.
