There’s an old saying, popularised by The Breakfast Club: “you mess with the bull, you get the horns”. What does it mean? Not much really. Mostly that if you do something dangerous, you might get hurt. One dangerous thing you could do would be to miss the crazy, brass based, MC led explosion that is BULLHORN. Formed in 2011, these party animals combine virtuosic musicianship, crazy arrangements, catchy grooves and upbeat rhythms to whip the audience into a veritable frenzy. As adept at creating original tunes as they are at reimagining the likes of Bonobo and Easy Star All Stars, this nine piece behemoth is hell-bent on good times
Since being established in 2011 BULLHORN have released two albums; Their debut self titled album (2012) and the new ‘Players/Sounds’ album (2014). They’ve also toured throughout Australia performing at many venues and festivals including Woodford Folk Fest (2016), Queenscliff Fest (2016), Port Fairy Festival (2016), The Gum Ball Festival (2016), Vivid Festival (2016), Fairbridge Festival (2016), Earth Frequency Festival (2016), Australasian World Music Expo (2014), The Falls Music & Arts Fest (2014 & 2015), Caloundra Music Fest (2014 & 2016), Mullumimby Music Fest (2014 & 2015), End Of The Line Fest, Happy Daze Festival, Collaborations Festival, Island Vibe, Noosa Jazz Fest, Kuranda Roots, Bleach Fest, Easterfest, Redcliffe Fest, Home Fest, Caxton Fest and many many others.
Their presence is formidable; armed with trumpets, trombones, saxophones, drums, the mighty sousaphone and the massive presence of Roman MC. As BULLHORN starts to play audiences will experience intoxicating grooves and huge rumbling sounds around them as they descend into a world of rich sonic textures created live, acoustic and real.
