Jack Howard’s Epic Brass is back and ready to raise the roof at Memo on Saturday December 5th! This ripper show is a celebration and an exploration of the great horn hits and hidden gems of Australian rock – from Hunters and Collectors and the Oils to The Saints, The Laughing Clowns and Painters And Dockers, the show features an incredible set list of killer brass tunes.
Jack is joined on stage by a cavalcade of guest singers. Deborah Conway, Paul Dempsey (Something For Kate), Paulie Stewart (Painters And Dockers), Steve Lucas from X, Penny Ikinger (Wet Taxis) and live wire Fiona Lee Maynard bring their style and their energy to this uniquely powerful show. The Epic Brass band is sensational and features a mighty four-piece horn section.
Jack played trumpet with Hunters and Collectors and wrote and arranged most of the band’s iconic horn lines. Along the way, he’s also played with The Violent Femmes, Rodriguez, You Am I, The Living End and a host of others. Throughout 2017, Jack toured the world with Midnight Oil as their trumpeter/keyboard player/percussionist. He has also just released his musical memoirs, Small Moments Of Glory, and released his tenth original album, Dog Songs. Check it out at jackhoward.bandcamp.com.”
