Combining 8 horns with 2 percussionists, scratch DJ and live MC, Renegade Brass Band mix funk, hip-hop and jazz 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 in the last year, they have supported acts including De La Soul, Busta Rhymes, Grandmaster Flash, Public Enemy, The Cat Empire, Jamie Cullum, Quantic, Craig Charles and many more.

A hit with festival crowds across Europe, the band have played at UK festivals including Glastonbury, Java Jazz Festival Jakarta, Dubai Jazz Festival, Sea Sessions Ireland, Stuttgart Jazz Festival and Soundwave Croatia.

Their new album ‘Totems’ launched in April 2017, seeing them develop their hard-edged brass sound. The band released their debut album, ‘RBB: Rhymes, Beats & Brass’ in August 2014, and followed it up with their 2015 ‘RBB: Rhymes, Beats & Brass (Remixed), featuring collaborations with artists such as Hugo Kant, Colman Brothers and Tall Black Guy. In October 2015, they did a live session for BBC6 Music’s Craig Charles Funk & Soul Show, and have had airplay from BBC6 Music, BBC Radio 2 and Radio 1 in the UK, as well as stations around the world.
