The Hot Potato Band

Anything could happen! Known to cause a severe case of happy fever, the 11-piece fresh-sounds brass band is sure to put a smile on your face in an incredibly unique live show.

After returning from their acclaimed performances at Woodford Folk Festival 2015, the Hot Potato Band have become one of the most celebrated performing bands in Australia both on and off the stage. Beware, as they make you the centre of their performance—literally!



The band's unique sound comes from the absence of a single drum kit, bass guitar and electrified instruments. Three drummers create synchronised grooves on what would be a deconstructed drum kit. The bass lines are covered by an enormous, lung-busting Sousaphone. Two baritone saxophones mimic the part of a rhythm guitar, and the band's huge array of horns cover catchy chorus lines and provide a beautiful harmonic cloud for Dylan (the vocalist) to float above.
