“Hyde park brass are charting a new course for the meaning of ‘brass band’”
Hyde Park Brass was born in 2015 as the product of a one-off performance at the University of Leeds. The boys immediately decided there was more to the band than just one gig, and that’s where the journey began. Building their name around their home city of Leeds, Hyde Park Brass began to curate and develop a repertoire combining a range of varied musical inspirations. This culminated in the production of their eponymous debut album in 2018, and since then the boys have expanded nationwide, bringing their unmistakeable party style to audiences across the UK and beyond. Throughout this incredible journey, Hyde Park Brass has worked with incredible clients ranging from Manchester United to AO.com, and performed for the BBC on Breakfast and the 2019 BBC Sports Personality of the Year. The band is also a key fixture on the UK festival circuit, having performed at Kendal Calling, Lost Village and many more. 2018 saw the band go viral, with their infectious performance of It’s Coming Home in the Peak District being seen by over 1 million people. This was followed by their explosively original Powerhouse EP, released in 2019, which firmly placed the group at the pinnacle of the emerging UK brass band scene.
