TSMB and Bollywood Brass Band at Rich Mix
It’s our final Rich Mix residency show of the year and we were never going to let the occasion slip by without a serious party! On Wednesday 17th December we welcome the phenomenal Bollywood Brass Band to join us at Shoreditch’s Rich Mix! Exuberant Bhangra rhythms from a percussion section bursting with energy, plus thundering trumpets, trombones and sousaphone – TSMB kick off the party at 8.15pm and Bollywood Brass Band (and even a little reappearance from us..) follow at 9.45pm – all for FREE!
Check out this absolute banger from Bollywood Brass Band and imagine how huge it will sound live when all you have heard for the last three days is wall-to-wall Christmas song sludge!
TSMB T-Shirts, mugs and hoodies now available to buy!
Do you ever wish you could express your profound appreciation for the Trans-Siberian March Band through the medium of your clothing and/or tea vessel?
Access our shop here, and come to our gig at Rich Mix this Wednesday evening (17 Sept) where we’ll give the first three people we see wearing a TSMB t-shirt a FREE CD to congratulate you on your excellent fashion sense.
Talking of CDs, our new album is in production as we speak and we can’t wait to share it with you.
The end of a cracking summer
Great summer of gigs including a couple of main stage festival shows (Camp Bestival, Lounge on the Farm) and a show at the Royal Albert Hall with DJ Yoda. Below is another video what goes down when you put 14 rowdy so-and-soes on stage with a hip-hop DJ.
NEW ALBUM on its way!
Good things come to those who wait…
…and we could not be more excited that there is a second TSMB album now recorded and in production! It’s rare to see all 14 members of the Trans-Siberian March Band in a room together except on nights with a full moon, but here we all are messing with expensive lovely equipment at Air Studios in Hampstead.
The album will be a mix of originals and our own takes on traditional Balkan and Gypsy tunes. Even bigger and better than the last, it’s mostly fast and furious but paces itself with the obligatory latin-flavoured smoochy number, a love medley and a quick blast of the Tetris theme. More brass than you can slide a trombone at comes as standard.. hints of drum&bass and hip-hop thrown in by the percussion section for good measure? Why not.
Huge thanks to Fi and Toby at Air Studios and Rob from the band for managing to herd everyone together for long enough to record us, and for all your time and effort in making it sound great. The release date is TBC, but we’ll keep you updated here as well as on Facebook and Twitter (keep your eye out for the odd preview too). You can also still get our first album and our more recent Live at the Union Chapel E.P. on Bandcamp.
