About this event

We are so excited to be welcoming 8-piece London-based Brass Band ‘The Brass Funkeys’ to our debut Concertini at Watermans.

Expect to hear everything from soulful jazz to funeral marches, reggae, gypsy and swing to pumping brass-driven funk. Be Inspired by sizzling saxes, screaming trumpets and soulful trombones without worrying about the kids wriggling and making some noise!

Stay on afterwards for the chance to try the instruments courtesy of Dawkes Music in a relaxed stay and play in our gallery upstairs.

About Brass Funkeys

The Brass Funkeys draw from the traditions of New Orleans with skilled musicianship, rolling from spirited second line revelry to soulful jazz funeral marches and pumping brass driven funk. Reggae, DnB, gypsy, swing and Latin influences are exposed in an eclectic live show revealing a band bursting at the seams with ideas and infectious energy

About Concertini

Concertini was formed in May 2015 by musician, teacher and mum of two Julia Bentley Dawkes. Born into a musical family Julia passionately believes that everyone can benefit from live music and the earlier we introduce it the better.

“The purpose of each Concertini is to introduce children and their families to different styles of live music and musical instruments, to prepare them for the enjoyment of future live music events, to nurture a love of music and to provide an opportunity for families to listen to live music in a relaxed community setting.”

The performance will take place in our theatre with a chance to try out the musical instruments afterwards.
