PLUS MORE EPIC BRASS SHOWS IN NOVEMBER!!! FRIDAY 11th NOVEMBER – SATELLITE LOUNGE cnr Ferntree Gully and Jells Road, Wheeler’s Hill SATURDAY 12th NOVEMBER – FLYING SAUCER CLUB 4 St Georges Road, Elsternwick Penny Ikinger makes a special guest appearance as part of Jack Howard’s EPIC BRASS. Jack Howard was the man behind that most iconic of horn sections – Hunters and Collectors’ Horns Of Contempt. Trumpet player, brass and string arranger, backing vocalist, songwriter, Jack was there for Holy Grail, Say Goodbye, Talking To A Stranger and all of the rest. Now with his new show, Epic Brass, Jack performs the great horn hits and hidden gems of the Hunnas, The Oils, The Saints, The Laughing Clowns and many more. Here’s a typical quote from the show’s debut gig in July – ‘Often when you’re expecting something to be great, it doesn’t meet expectations. Jack Howard’s Epic Brass show high-jumped over expectations, then did a triple somersault with a perfect landing. Still buzzing the day after!’ It was a sensational night with a sensational cast of guest singers – Ron Peno (Died Pretty), Sean Kelly (Models), Paulie Stewart (Painters and Dockers), Steve Lucas (X), Penny Ikinger (Wet Taxis) and Fiona Lee Maynard. Jack has put together an all-star band with a 5-piece horn section to perform an incredible set list.
