Old Dirty Brasstards

London's finest drum and brass

Since forming in 2012, Old Dirty Brasstards has gained an enviable reputation for its bold and innovative approach, on a mission to introduce brass music to brand new audiences.

Old Dirty Brasstards won over the crowd instantly with people pleasing covers of ‘Uptown Funk’, Taylor Swift’s ‘Shake It Off’ and ‘Happy’ by Pharrell.
