3 May 2018
Taite Prize finalists, Hopetoun Brown enlist the country's finest trumpet player Finn Scholes for a unique journey through rhythm and blues in a late night cabaret setting at the ITR's Gloucester Room.
These three multi-instrumentalists travel with a boot-load of exotic instruments. Bass clarinets, tubas and trombones are swapped for trumpets, saxophones and an assortment of strange keyboard instruments throughout the two stomp-heavy sets. Lead singer Tim Stewart's large boots will rattle floors throughout the nation as the band work through their repertoire spanning blues, soul, funk, jazz, Americana and stomp.
The set-list will be peppered with tunes from Hopetoun Brown's latest album Look So Goodwhich features guests turns from Tami Neilson, Marlon Williams and their touring buddy Finn Scholes. If you're looking for a jazz journey that starts in New Orleans and ends at your back door this could be your night.
All this in a sultry cabaret setting with ticket, antipasto platter and wine packages available for a fabulous Thursday night out. See you there!
