Combining 8 horns with 2 percussionists, scratch DJ and MC, Renegade Brass Band mix jazz, funk and hip-hop with a raw brass sound and high-energy live show.

RBB have already established a big live reputation as a headline act, and have played packed-out shows at venues around the UK and Europe, and alongside artists including DJ Vadim, Quantic, Craig Charles, Rodney P & Skitz, Ms. Dynamite, Mistajam and The Nextmen.

A hit with crowds across Europe, the band have played at festivals including Secret Garden Party, a headline slot at Sea Sessions Ireland, and Kendal Calling. They have twice appeared at Soundwave Croatia opening the stage for artists such as DJ Shadow and DJ Yoda, and in 2011, played one of the final slots at the Manchester International Jazz Festival.

The band release their debut album, ‘RBB: Rhymes, Beats & Brass’ in 2014, which sees them further develop their hard-edged brass sound – combining raw brass funk with the vocals of MC V3xation and scratch DJ Zxodiac. For 2013’s Record Store Day, RBB teamed up with Tru Thoughts artists Rodney P and Harleighblu to record a limited-edition 7” vinyl featuring the tracks ‘Success’ and ‘Live Up’. The band also provided the horns for Harleighblu’s debut album, ‘Forget Me Not’, released in October 2013, as well as supporting her live shows.

They also have a number of collaboration projects on the go, including tracks with Diesler and Rodney P, and a remix swap with The Herbaliser, where RBB arranged a voodoo- inspired version of their track March Of The Dead Things.
