Jack Howard’s Epic Brass is a celebration and an exploration of the great horn hits and hidden gems of Australian rock – from Hunters and Collectors and the Oils to The Saints, The Laughing Clowns and Painters And Dockers, the show features an incredible set list of killer brass tunes.
Jack is joined on stage by a cavalcade of guest singers. Paulie Stewart (Painters And Dockers), Steve Lucas from X, Ron Peno (Died Pretty), Penny Ikinger (Wet Taxis) and Melbourne sensation Fiona Lee Maynard bring their style and their energy to this uniquely powerful show. The Epic Brass band is sensational and features a mighty four-piece horn section.
Jack plays trumpet with Hunters and Collectors and wrote and arranged most of the band’s iconic horn lines. Along the way, he’s also played with The Violent Femmes, Rodriguez, You Am I, The Living End and a host of others. Throughout 2017, Jack toured the world with Midnight Oil as their trumpeter/keyboard player/percussionist. Jack will also be releasing a new original CD, Dog Songs, in September.
