Brass Knuckle Brass Band is a sweaty late-night party for anyone who knows a sousaphone is always tougher than a bass guitar Think whiskey dripping from trombone spit-valves; think drummers with callouses on their callouses. Think a crusty bari sax belting at Bourbon Street from the wrong hemisphere and you're getting the idea.

First thrown together for a one-off Wednesday night jazz gig, BKBB has played at Falls Festival and Woodford Folk Festival, and has opened for international heavyweights Jon Cleary, Charles Bradley and Fred Wesley. Equally comfortable playing New Orleans-style second lines and heavy hip-hop beats, the group has also become the go-to live band for the ACT's best rappers, performing and recording with Citizen Kay, Coda Conduct, the Ansah Bros, Hayds and Roshambo


Led by Skywhale songstress guitarist Jess Green (Pheno) Goldseeker is punk jazz with chameleon skin. Dirty electric guitars, funky off the wall beats. Imagine Devo and Kate Bush playing alien jazz in a bluesy back alley.


Jess Green – Guitar and Vocals
Dan Junor – Saxophones
Miroslav Bukovsky - Tpt
