Description

"Temple Funk Collective brought the house down at Bestival" - a New Orleans style 8-piece brass band riot, taking their lead from the Louisiana legends and adding gypsy, jungle and hip hop. Hailing from Temple Cowley, Oxford, Temple Funk hit the scene in late 2012 and haven’t looked back since. With a rapidly growing fan base they are becoming one of the UKs top New Orleans Brass Bands Now mixing upbeat originals into a set of some classic covers, with both clever and cheeky arrangements Temple Funk are a band you can watch over and over again and still spot something new. "Hypnotic Brass Ensemble meets University Challenge" Chris Tofu – Continental Drifts "really funky Brass led dance along and joyous jump up music."
