Funkrust Brass Band is a 20-piece post-apocalyptic disco-punk brass band playing all original music with megaphone vocals, heavy tuba bass lines, thundering percussion and searing brass melodies. Their explosive live performances feature full band choreography, signature wasteland-glam uniforms and LED lighting effects. The band mixes post punk, disco, EDM, metal, and funk with Balkan brass and New Orleans second line sounds.
Bones and Burning, the band's second release, includes four original songs that channel hope, despair, anarchic joy, and catharsis, inviting listeners to dance in the rubble of a fallen civilization.
