ABOUT THE HEAVYWEIGHTS BRASS BAND
The Heavyweights Brass Band have built a reputation as Canada’s reigning champions of feel-good horn music. Over the last decade they have toured extensively and shared the stage with Trombone Shorty, The Roots, Galactic, and The Soul Rebels, among many others. Their unique style never fails to move any audience, and has earned them a loyal following from fans across all genres. The secret to the Heavyweights reach can be found in the folk origins of jazz. Following in the footsteps of the originators, their music is shaped not only by their environment but also by traditions dating back centuries, creating an alchemy which has universal appeal. Happily at home on stage with such diverse artists as Jane Bunnett, Jay Douglas, Giovanni Hidalgo, and Treme Brass Band, the Heavyweights roll with the punches and always deliver a knockout blow.
