Hopetoun Brown might be the only two-piece hip-hop soul band of trumpet and bass-clarinet. That's because the duo - who have been playing together since their teens as the Supergroove horn section - use just voice, trumpet, trombone, percussion (Tim Stewart) and bass clarinet (Nick Atkinson) to blow up a storm of soul, jazz, blues and electricity-free hip-hop. They have joined forces with one of our most creative Auckland musicians.

Finn Scholes, for a musical journey across the genres. Recently returned from international touring duties with Neil Finn, Scholes arrives with an armory of brass and keyboard instruments. While his trumpet playing dazzles, his skills on piano and vibes create a unique atmosphere for the Hopetoun Brown repertoire to flourish.

The show has proven so popular it'll be featured twice at this year's WOMAD festival. The trio have many miles on the road behind them and their partnership has bloomed in the studio too. These three Ponsonby natives bring their unique live energy to the Manawatu for the first time.
