Junkadelic Brass Band - A face-melting blend of street rhythms!

The Junkadelic Brass Band is a band like no other.

Hailing from Perth, Western Australia, Junkadelic combines a smoking hot 6-piece brass section with hard-hitting recycled percussion to bring you a face-melting blend of street rhythms.

Taking inspiration from traditional New Orleans street music, Junkadelic combines tasty funk grooves with latin and hip-hop flavours to get you down on the D-floor. Rowdy vocals round out the band's explosive original compositions to create brass band music with a bend in it.


Seeing the Junkadelic Brass Band in full flight on the stage is truly something to behold. Featuring a full set of original repertoire along with unique interpretations of high-energy  classics, Junkadelic can have a crowd up and dancing like no other. Having toured around  the world to places like The U.S.A, Hong Kong, and around Australia, we are yet to find a  crowd we couldn’t get having the time of their lives


Who needs a stage when we can get right down and into the thick of the action!? Due to our  unique line-up and self-sustaining setup, Junkadelic can be ready to party in just about any  location. Having performed to large crowds of people at street festivals around the world,  our sound is perfectly suited to this kind of environment.


One of the main things that sets Junkadelic apart from many other bands is our ability to take our high-energy performance style on the go! Junkadelic bases itself off the model of the traditional New Orleans style brass band, which is world famous for its unique ‘Mardi Gras’ street festival, where the bands and parade floats line Bourbon Street in late February every year in colourful celebration.

“Perth is pretty lucky to have the Junkadelic Brass Band” — The West Australian, February 2016

"The Junkadelic Brass Band has achieved an iconic status in the Western Australian music scene and has been a solid contributor over several years to numerous community events and festivals. Always uplifting and inspiring, I have had the pleasure of programming the group within the Fairbridge Festival assured that performances during the parade, concerts or workshops will always be delivered with creativity and professionalism." - Rod Vervest – Director Fairbridge Festival 2016

"I have known the Junkadelic band since it's early days - and seen it grow from a community arts percussion group to one of Perth's most talented and entertaining Funk/Jazz bands. All this time they haven't lost their connection with community - and are constantly conducting workshops with young people all over the state - and recently internationally - and are all about breaking down the barriers between musicians and audience. It is for this reason that I have never hesitated to book them for street and community events that I have had the pleasure to organise." - James Murphy – Director UpBeat Events – 2016
