Description

Presented by: Baycourt Presents

Starring: Hopetown Brown, Finn Scholes

Taite Prize finalists Hopetown Brown enlist the country’s finest trumpet player Finn Scholes for a unique journey through rhythm and blues.

These three multi-instrumentalists travel with a boot-load of exotic instruments. Bass clarinets, tubas and trombones are swapped for trumpets, saxophones and an assortment of strange keyboard instruments throughout the two stomp-heavy sets. Lead singer Tim Stewart’s large boots will rattle floors throughout the nation as the band work through their repertoire spanning blues, soul, funk, jazz, Americana and stomp.

The set-list will be peppered with tunes from Hopetown Brown’s latest album Look So Good which features guests turns from Tami Neilson, Marlon Williams and their touring buddy Finn Scholes. If you’re looking for a jazz journey that starts in New Orleans and ends at your back door this could be your night.
