Tom McGuire & The Brassholes are an eclectic, modern-soul-funk, 8 piece band from Glasgow, headed by keen skater, lumberjack-attired soul bearer, Tom McGuire. The funky collective of killer animals from hell, consists of a colourful, hilarious bunch of wonderfully talented, animated young men.
The band deliver great variety and include everything from a humble Polish saxophonist, a reserved introvert piano pounder, someone who claims to be the self-confessed sex appeal of the band and two English horn blowing northerners amongst others! Together they will gently sway you, force those feet to tap, and before you know it, you may be both down and funky.
The band earned their stripes on Sauchiehall and Buchanan Street as buskers during Glasgow’s 2014 Commonwealth Games, and have slowly been working their way up the staircase of success, becoming one of Scotland’s most vibrant live acts.
With their debut self-titled album due for release in January 2019, this is a band that are definitely one to watch! Come see them at this year’s World Ceilidh!
