Sunday Bests: Hyde Park Brass

For 20 years, HiFi has specialised in postponing the working week that bit longer, and squeezing as much fun out of the weekend as possible. Each week at the Sunday Joint we welcome all you weekend warriors in for a free night of cutting edge live music and DJs, and we don’t plan on stopping any time soon. So, to celebrate this “day of rest”, we ask our SJ bands to name their Sunday Bests.

This next band are bold as brass. You’ve probably seen them around Leeds at some point, either in a bar or even dominating the top end of Briggate…
