HOT POTATO BAND
Capitol Theatre Tamworth
Level 1 Centrepoint Shopping Centre Peel Street
Tamworth, NSW, Australia
Known to cause a severe case of happy fever the 11 piece, fresh sounds brass band is sure to put a smile on your face in an incredibly unique live show.
The Hot Potato Band found their roots and musical inspiration in Sydney’s southern suburbs as street performers running over 120 shows a year all around Australia.
The band’s unique sound comes from the absence of a single drum kit, bass guitar and electrified instruments. Three drummers create synchronised grooves on what would be a deconstructed drum kit. The bass lines are covered by an enormous, lung busting Sousaphone. Two baritone saxophones mimic the part of a rhythm guitar and the band’s huge array of horns cover catchy chorus lines and provide a beautiful harmonic cloud for Dylan (the vocalist) to float above.
‘...guitar playing of uncommon originality and authority. Musicality, expressivity and daring...’ - The New York Times
