Backyard Rhythm Orchestra

Correctly billed as a ‘genre-hopping party band’, Backyard Rhythm Orchestra use a melting pot of instruments to create a myriad of musical styles, which all have their infectious bounciness and top drawer musicianship in common.

With styles covering Reggae, Ska, Balkan, Hip-Hop, Cumbia, Rave, Funk and Drum and bass, Backyard Rhythm Orchestra mix up a little of almost everything into a festival dance band storm, fused with conscious and political protest and a sense of humour.

 

'With furious horns, infectious dance rhythms, songs about Irn Bru and perhaps the most fabulous pair of trousers to grace the festival, their individual brand of gypsy punk was the perfect start to the day.' - Fortitude review of Boomtown 2014

‘With a sound all of their own, a staunch refusal to take themselves seriously and an ability to cultivate a true party atmosphere; Backyard Rhythm Orchestra are a band that really have to be seen to be believed’  - Gigs North East review of Funkus the Boogieman single launch
