Hot Potato Band 4th Wall Theatre 24-03-2019 19:30 Early bird $35 - All tickets $40 The boys are back at the 4th Wall and we are so pleased to have them here again - they are awesome !! Hot Potato Band is proud of their all acoustic line up. The absence of electronic instrumentation has set them apart from many other acts and continues to tie them to their roving roots, but not to the stage. The bands energy is released through an amalgamation of catchy music and lyrics, infectious dance moves, and audience interaction, attributed to their mobility as a band and the breaking down of barriers between stage and audience. Although difficult to describe their genre, HPB continues to compile their arsenal of songs inspired by Pop, Funk, Ska, Reggae and bound by the classic sounds of New Orleans brass bands. The bands unique sound is built on the backs of three drummers and a sousaphone, along with an array of horns covering catchy chorus lines and providing a beautiful harmonic cloud for Ben (vocalist) to float above. They are a band never to shy from a good time. Early bird available until 28th February. Click here

In addition to their UK tours, these “two exceptional musicians” (Stuttgart press) have established a significant reputation in Ireland and Germany - and of course even on their New Zealand and Australia tours sometimes the odd German folk song, or even a German ‘joke’ will find its way into a “fantastically entertaining night” (Secret Sounds).
