Featuring Deborah Conway, Rob Hirst , Ron Peno, Paulie Stewart, Steve Lucas, Penny Ikinger, Fiona Lee Maynard
The fabulous JACK HOWARD and big band return to MEMO with his mighty EPIC BRASS show!
Jack Howard’s Epic Brass is a celebration and exploration of the great horn hits and hidden gem s of Australian rock – from Hunters and Collectors and the Oils to The Saints and Wet Taxis, the show features an incredible set list of killer brass tunes. Two of the legends of Australian music will be joining in the fun this time around!
The fabulous Deborah Conway will be singing a Do Re Mi classic and a couple of other tunes. Deb is one of the most powerful and riveting performers in the country and Jack and the band are rapt to have her on board. A genuine trailblazer. And on drums and percussion alongside Ash Davies, none other than the mighty Rob Hirst from The Oils will be flying down to play. Rob joined EPIC BRASS on stage in Sydney in June and it was seriously brilliant. Jack played trumpet and arranged the iconic horn lines for H & C; and along the way he’s played with The Violent Femmes, Rodriguez, You Am I, The Living End and a host of others. Throughout 2017, Jack toured the world with Midnight Oil as their trumpeter/multi-instrumentalist.
The Epic Brass band is sensational and features a cracking four-piece horn section. Jack is also joined by a terrific cast of guest singers – Ron Peno (Died Pretty), Paulie Stewart (Painters and Dockers), Steve Lucas from X, Penny Ikinger (Wet Taxis) and Melbourne sensation Fiona Lee Maynard, bring their style and their energy to this uniquely powerful show.
Have a look and a listen here and you’ll start to understand why this show has been knocking everyone out wherever it goes – EPIC BRASS was originally launched to a capacity crowd at MEMO in July 2016 and it was an unforgettable night. For many punters, it was the gig of the year. Here’s a typical reaction – “Often when you’re expecting something to be great, it doesn’t meet expectations. Last night, Jack Howard’s Epic Brass show high-jumped over expectations, then did a triple somersault with a perfect landing. Congratulations, Jack and everyone involved! Still buzzing about it today.”
This is a unique show full of POWER and PASSION – and HORNS! DON’T MISS OUT!
If you don’t have your tickets already, get onto it straight away. It’s going to be a night to remember!
