Wonderbrass is 25 this year, and to celebrate we took ourselves off on tour to Budapest.
For three whole days in September we lit up the Hungarian capital with our hurricane of horns, toe-tapping beats and an infectious energy that inevitably got everyone dancing!
First stop was a performance at the Hangszerplaza music shop where where Katie our keyboard player had the chance to funk up Wonderbrass tunes on an original Rhodes piano.
Later that evening we wowed the crowds at Szimpla Kert one of Budapest’s famous Ruin Bars, took over their open mic night and kicked ass on stage! You can watch our performance on Szimpla’s Facebook page.
Making the most of the Budapest sunshine, Wonderbrass busked at the metro station Deák ferenc tér, where passers by stopped to listen or get up and dance, whilst generously showering us with Forints!
Our weekend culminated on a high, playing along the route of Budapest’s international half marathon. Just as the runners were flagging towards the end, our horns, drums and dancing gave them a burst of Wonderfuel to get them across that finish line! Egészségedre!
We’ve got loads more exciting gigs and events coming up a lot closer to home so keep an eye out on our listings.
