I’m with the Banda...

Take a Bavarian brass section, add some drums and a funky bass, stick in a few bonkers cover versions (Daft Punk’s ‘Around the World’, Reel 2 Reel’s ‘I Like to Move it Move it’ and Salt n’ Pepa’s ‘Push It’ spring to mind) and you’ve got the funkiest band this side of the Danube. Ja, this week (Thursday 15th April) La Brass Banda bring da noise to The Hare and Hounds in what promises to be a frankly insane mash up of Euro pop, mariachi and Bavarian Polka. And if that isn’t enough to prise you away from the first 'exciting' televised election debate (I can feel my sphincter clenching at the thought of any of ‘em running the country...'zefix' as they say in Bavaria) then there’s no hope for you. Support comes from Brummie funkateers Fistful of Dynamite and the intriguing sounding anti folksters Gurdan Thomas.
