Booka Brass

CORK OPERA HOUSE SAT Oct 29th at 11.30pm


Booka Brass Band is a group of eight musicians that span the length and breadth of Ireland - from Belfast to Cork. Formed in 2012, they have quickly gone from strength to strength on the live music scene in Ireland.

With regular shows in venues all over Dublin including The Sugar Club, Whelan’s and Twisted Pepper, alongside stomping sets to festival crowds at the Guinness Cork Jazz Festival, Electric Picnic, Sea Sessions and Longitude, their incredible live energy has brought them an unusual level of success.. Classically trained, the band also brings a great understanding of classical harmony which can be heard behind the beats of their original tunes.

In the past few months they have opened shows for New Orleans’ Hot 8 Brass Band and New York’s Hypnotic Brass Ensemble. They’ve also collaborated with some of Ireland’s top acts including Jerry Fish and Lisa Hannigan on the back of their set at the New Year’s Eve Mixtape at Vicar Street. Since their first sold out shows, the Booka have been all over Ireland and beyond, with shows at Glastonbury Festival, main stage at Body and Soul, headlining Knockanstockan, opening for Imelda May and being invited to play in Áras an Uachtaráin.
