Door 11.30pm for Midnight Gig
Booka Brass Band have developed their sound and set up over the last twelve months through a succession of great opportunities, all well-deserved and well executed. They have also grown in size, now containing seven members consisting of two trumpets, two trombones, saxophone, sousaphone and drums. With six band members still full-time students, they also stretch the length and breadth of the country coming from Cork all the way to Belfast.
Since their first sold out show in the Button Factory where they collaborated with Jerry Fish and Lisa Hannigan, the band have been all over Ireland and beyond, with shows at Glastonbury Festival, main stage Body and Soul, headlining Knockanstockan and Barn Dance Festival, opening for Imelda May and being invited to play for The President in Áras an Uachtaráin.
