There are many words that could be used to describe Melbourne band The Hornstars. Funky. Danceable. Quirky. but above all else, the Hornstars are all about fun, and their primary mission is to show their audience a funky good time.
The Hornstars sound is big, brassy and hard to pigeonhole. The lineup featuring Clancy Cullen (vocals), Daniel Bardan (trumpet), Bruce Cousins (trombone), Russell B Myers (tenor sax), Eric Morand (alto sax and percussion), Mike Holloway (bass), Peter Bonett (keys), Gareth Durant (guitar) and Joe Mount (drums) bring a wide range of influences to the mix. Jazz, soul, blues, reggae - it may not all be funk as we know it, but it is definitely funky.
With their second album ‘Half Way There’ just released, and following recent shows at The Nightcat and The Corner, The Hornstars cant wait to bring their 3 funk’n sets to The Espy!
