Anything could happen! Known to cause a severe case of happy fever, this 10 piece brass band is sure to put a smile on your face in an incredibly unique live show.

The Hot Potato Band found their roots and musical inspiration in Sydney's southern suburbs as street performers running over 120 shows a year all around Australia.

The bands unique sound comes from the absence of a single drum kit, bass guitar and electrified instruments. Three drummers create synchronised grooves on 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 bands huge array of horns cover catchy chorus lines and provide a beautiful harmonic cloud for Ben (the vocalist) to float above.

Members of the band include: Simon Ghali (Drums), James Swanson (Drums), Marc Malliate (Drums), Daniel Moore (Sousaphone), Peter Orenstein (Baritone Sax), Bernard Lagana (Baritone Sax), James Mackay (Tenor Sax), Edward Tan (Alto Sax), Nicholas Calligeros (Trumpet), Max Mallen-Cooper (Trombone), Ben Goldstein (Vocals).
