About the Band
The Brownfield Byrne Hot 6 provide high quality musical entertainment for wedding receptions, garden and birthday parties, corporate functions and many other special occasions.The band consists of highly experienced jazz musicians based in Cheshire & North Wales/North West.
By placing an emphasis on a high standard of musicianship and a challenging repertoire, and staying true to their original jazz influences, these six musicians succeed in achieving a broad appeal with young and old alike, breaking down the boundaries that traditionally exist between the respective jazz genres. Equally at home playing to late night revellers in a city centre jazz clubs, or performing to aficionados at an old-style traditional jazz festival, the sextet’s sound is characterised by the vibrancy of its front line horn section over a driving rhythm section consisting of piano, guitar, double bass and drums.
Combining a 21st sensibility with a passion for earlier styles of jazz has given the band a unique sound and identity which has earned them a growing reputation in the UK as torch bearers of the jazz tradition.
They have a large and diverse repertoire ranging from New Orleans, through the tin pan alley classics, the swing era, and mainstream jazz recalling the classic small groups of the 1930′s to the ‘Blue Note’ era hardbop styles.The band have played all over the UK from Cheshire, The Isle of Bute in Scotland down to Swanage in Dorset. Their work has been recognised by the British Jazz Awards and they have received some excellent reviews ‘original, exciting & crisp’ is how they were described recently.
