Booka Brass Band started out as a group of young music students shyly addressing a bar full of revellers, has unforeseeably become an 8 piece band of professional entertainers and craftsmen, capable of not just grabbing and holding the attention of thousands of fans in a festival tent or at any number of their sold out shows, but leaving them with something that they are not about to forget quickly.

The band have collaborated with artists like The Frames, Lisa Hannigan, James Vincent McMorrow, Paul Noonan, We Cut Corners, Jerry Fish, and seduced audiences from main arena shows at Electric Picnic, Glastonbury, main stage at Body and Soul to their sell out debut shows in Dublin’s Button Factory and Vicar Street along with their sell out debut Irish tour last March, ending in The Cork Opera House for Cork Jazz Festival 2015.
