One of our Looe Music Festival favorites, Oompah Brass are back by popular demand.
“Absolutely f***ing brilliant!” Frank Skinner (twice live on stage with Mr Skinner).
Formed by some of the UK’s most versatile brass players, Oompah Brass started out with the firm intention of becoming a traditional German oompah band. However, they quickly realised that novel arrangements of pop tunes carried more appeal than the waltzes, polkas and marches. They’ve since been described by one of their biggest fans, Chris Evans, as full-blown ‘legends in Lederhosen.’
Winners of the 2012 Haizetara International Street Band Competition, Oompah Brass are now a multiple award-winning, critically-acclaimed brass ensemble and are the world’s leading exponents of ‘Oom-pop’ – Bavarian-style re-workings of songs such as Guns ‘n Roses’ ‘Paradise City’, Britney Spears’ ‘Toxic’, and Queen’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’.
In the regular line-up of two trumpets, horn, trombone and tuba, the five pioneers are back to get you moving down the streets of Looe.
