Hopetoun Brown light up the night, their antique wind instruments shrieking wildly, evoking the spirit of New Orleans funeral processions or futuristic funk jams.
This is Supergroove’s horn section. Expect electric pianos, vibraphones and a van load of horns playing deep down bass lines and jumping sax licks like you’ve never heard! These New Zealand Music Hall of Fame inductees adore rare and antique acoustic instruments such the vibraphone and the bass clarinet, while embracing the bombastic power of the tuba, the tenor saxophone, trombones and multiple trumpets. They’ve teamed up with Finn Scholes, arguably one of the finest improvisers currently playing trumpet in New Zealand to form a unique and musically diverse act that can be at once tender and soulful while at times, anarchic and heavy.
