BULLHORN are a dynamic nu-wave brass band, made up of 1 bossing drummer,
7 hard hitting horn players and 1 monster MC. With their roots in funk,
soul, hip hop, reggae and dance music their performances inspire the
most conservative audiences to make their way to the dancefloor. 

Since 2011 BULLHORN have been brassing up stages in Brisbane, and
surrounds. Introducing eager audiences to their modern take on brass
band, fusing contempory styles on a vintage instrumental canvas. This
collection of musicians has been taken from the cream of Brisbane horn
players with each musician boasting years of high profile performance

Their presence is formidable; eight people in all, armed with trumpets,
trombones, saxophones, drums and the mighty sousaphone bringing up the
rear. As BULLHORN starts to play audiences will experience huge rumbling
sounds around them as they descend into a world of rich sonic textures
created live, acoustic and real. 

Fat Picnic all grew up in a big little town called Fat City. During
their teens, some found paid employment as groovesmith apprentice's or
labourers at the local funk factory. When the local government was
overturned by some smelly bandits, a group of young citizens banded
together to resist their unfunky cause. The young citizens blasted the
bandits with really catchy horn lines, great dancing tempos and
ridiculously fun live shows. Dazzled by groove, the bandits were left
helpless. By nightfall the city was returned to its true owners and a
movement was formed. Their leader, Hughie suggested calling the group,
'Obese Alfresco Dining'. However, after consideration, the group decided
to call themselves Fat Picnic instead, united by a funky mission: 

"To spread love and good vibes!" 

These days Fat Picnic is a soul-ska explosion that preaches punchy horn
lines and bangin' reggae beats - culminating in an energetic and
infectious live show! Corrupted by an unquenchable lust for groove and
outstanding noises, their music ranges across dub, funk, soul & ska.
Simply put, there just ain't no party like a Fat Picnic party!
