Wonderbrass formed in 1992 as a community street band from Pontypridd South Wales. Today they are bigger, bolder and brassier (pun intended) than ever before. Under the expert leadership of instrumentalist and composer Rob Smith and drummer extraordinaire Mark O’Connor, Wonderbrass are constantly evolving and exploring new musical challenges. Expect an intoxicating mix of jazz, Latin, ska and soul; a diverse repertoire including Cannonball Adderley, Abdulah Ibrahim and Madonna whilst indulging in a number of their own compositions along the way.
Having enjoyed a number of successful and ongoing collaborations with international musicians such as Claude Deppa, King Django, Jason Yarde and South Africa’s very own Amampondo, Wonderbrass are always seeking to thrill audiences both at home and abroad, in their unique style that once heard will never be forgotten… They’ve got to be seen to be believed!
