Booka Brass Band are Ireland’s answer to any New Orleans jazz band and have been many a festival goers highlight. I saw them at last year’s Jazz festival and they lifted the roof of the Cork Opera House.
The 8 piece of classically trained musicians use their understanding to use classical harmonies on hits from Jason Derulo, Beyonce and Justin Timberlake. The band have announced that they are bringing their rumbustious show on tour with dates in Cork, Louth and Dublin.
