The Hornstars are the auditioned big band of the University of Bristol and get the collective toe tapping with their repertoire of swing, Latin and funk. Over the last few years the band’s reputation has expanded through Bristol and the South West, becoming a regular name at functions and parties with its energetic performances.
However, the Hornstars have also gained recognition further afield, being awarded three gold medals at the National Concert Band Festival finals. Back in 2008 the Hornstars performed infront of The Britain's Got Talent panel getting through to the televised rounds (a short clip is on the listen page). As well as local events the bands also travel further afield to perform around the country and internationally; this year being no exception with a summer tour to Italy.
To hear what all the fuss is about, check out our listen section with recordings from previous gigs. If you want to see us live, look at our gigs page to see when and where we are next playing.
