Their take-no-prisoners bravado and energy grabs an audience & turns it into a seething waving sing-along crew in minutes.” – Jazzer’s Journal

Over the last decade, Toronto-based The Heavyweights Brass Band has shared stages with Trombone Shorty, The Roots, Galactic, and The Soul Rebels, as well as many others. With a unique style that never fails to move audiences, they create alchemy of universal appeal that has earned them loyal fans across all genres. The Heavyweights roll with the punches and always deliver a knockout blow. Drenched in energy, passion, and feeling, The HWBB bursts forthwith their latest album, Stir Crazy. John Pittman trumpet, Lowell Whitty drums, Paul Metcalfe saxophone, RJ Satchithananthan trombone, Tom Richards tuba
