Here’s an epic 16min version of Jungle Funk from The Brasshoppers trip to Haugesund last month.
2:21 Scouse rapping – Tony Peers (The Brasshoppers)
4:24 alto solo – Paul Jones (The Brasshoppers)
6:14 tenor solo – Dan White (Huntertones)
8:37 trombone solo – Chris Ott (Huntertones)
11:13 trumpet call and response and solo – Jon Lampley (Huntertones)
We were joined on stage by some of the members of the Huntertones, a great band from New York who had played earlier in the evening. The trumpet player from the Huntertones is great but you should hear him play sousaphone – he’s off the planet!!! Look out for Jon Lampley doing anything on the sousa he’s mind blowing.
As ever it was a good trip to Norway, they do love the Brasshoppers in Haugesund. We played some great gigs and had one poignant moment when we played at the funeral of a guy who was fan of the band and had passed away the week before we arrived – it was an honour and quite moving.
