“You’ll be DJing along side a full brass band”, isn’t a phrase I’ve heard very often, and I’ve been in this game for a minute. To be honest, Corporate parties range from incredibly dull to totally nuts and this event certainly fit into the latter category.
I was recently invited to DJ a Virgin Mobile graduate award celebration in Surrey and although I only had a to engage a few hundred drunken graduates with music and dancing (hard work, I know), it was the virtual ‘flashmob’ appearence of a band, playing contemporary pop, dance and R’n’B that engaged me.
Step up Hyde Park Brass. George was working the event with, and as a University of Leeds student, he got very excited when he realised HPB were booked. Seems that these lads (all Leeds/Leeds Uni connected) are quite big ‘oop north’. Rightfully so. Anyway out came t’phone to shoot a little vid. Enjoy…
Entertainment is all about reinventing the same thing over and over and just as I do, Hyde Park Brass throw themselves into the show and look for the edge on the everyday. Beyonce with real attitude and Shaikira with more sass. Hyde Park Brass, salute. Looking forward to the next one.
