Funked Up Brass – Ladies of the 80s
The Matilda Simcock and State of Play as part of FRINGE WORLD Festival 2022. Shoulder pads, acid washed denim, bike shorts, power suits, velour tracksuits, mullets, big hair, and bigger dreams. A decade of female rebellion and naughty lyrics. Madonna was being touched for the very first time, while Whitney was dancing with somebody who loved her. Let us hit you with our best shot as we delve through the archives of music that was blasting through walkman’s four decades ago. As the clock strikes upon the hour, and the sun begins to fade, put on your animal print, fanny packs and leggings to pay tribute to the ladies of the 80s!
Funked Up Brass will take you on an hour holiday through time, uniting their New Orleans brass band sound with their funky take on the 80s hits we all know and love. Come on shake your bodies and prepare to have your minds and ear drums blown by the 13 piece brass band – after all, girls just wanna have fun!
