Happy Spring! :)

Happy Spring Folks! The Sun is finally out and here at HB we’re getting ready for plenty of Spring and Summer Sun!

Just to keep you up to date;

You may have seen from our Twitter and Facebook pages that we’ve had another brilliant month with three awesome Birmingham shows at both the Rose Villa Tavern in Hockley and The Yardbird in central Birmingham. As many of you who came know, the latter was in aid of the Douglas Macmillan Hospice and the great turnout has sure to have made a brilliant contribution to a well deserved cause.

Over the last month our video ‘Killing In The Name Of’ gained media attention in the US, being the only UK (or non US for that matter!) band to feature in Relix Magazine’s ‘Five For Friday’, being quoted as one of ‘five brass band covers that will make your head explode with awesomeness’ as part their Mardi Gras festival write up. You can see the full article here;

Our friends over at 21st Century Brass also linked the article for us πŸ™‚

We’ll soon be back in Birmingham, performing as part of the event ‘The Oobleck Oompah’Β at new venue ‘Alfie Birds’ in the Custard Factory on Friday July 4th. With a gourmet pizzeria/eatery and an awesome show lined up, it would be good to see all of our Birmingham fans there! You can check out their Facebook page here.

Don’t forget you can also catch us at Bavarian Beerhouse in Tower Hill between 24th and 26th of April from 7pm, and at Bavarian Beerhouse Old Street between 1st and 3rd of May from 7pm*. These shows are ticketed entry (but include a free shot of Jaegermeister!), so make sure you book soon! You can find booking information here.

Before we sign off we also owe an apology to those people who thought we were actually supporting One Direction on their next tour – sorry folks! It was a brilliant April Fools though πŸ˜‰

*Don’t worry – we’ll still be at Katzenjammers on those Saturdays too! πŸ™‚
