Northern Monkey Brass Band (formerly known as Horn Dogs) are a deeply funky collective of some of the finest drum and brass players in the North East of England.
Inspired by Rebirth Brass Band, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Youngblood Brass Band to name a few (as well as that bit at the beginning of Live And Let Die), they formed at the beginning of 2009. The band have rapidly earned a reputation for lively, energetic shows featuring original music written specifically for the band, classics of the New Orleans brass band genre and well known covers in a way you’ve never heard them.
Band members have worked with Kathryn Williams, Jimmy Nail, The Unthanks, The New York Dolls, Tim Garland, The Drifters, Johnny Dickinson, Nitin Sawney, Therapy?, The Matinee Orchestra, Bob Mintzer, Andy Sheppard, Nitin Sawnhey, Snowboy, Grimethorpe Brass Band, Beccy Owen, Nick Pride and the Pimptones, Rachel McShane and Bill Bruford among others.
