Chris Rand and The Brass Bandits

Chris Rand is bringing his 'Brass Bandits' along for a party at One Night Records…

A multi-instrumentalist and composer, Chris Rand’s affinity with the saxophone is the driving force behind his music. His second album under his own name has recently landed with Lunaria Records; encapsulating the warm conviviality of a late night jazz club, it is an exploration of the contrasting musical influences which have shaped his sound.

He is a Sax player with a sound that packs a punch - described by some as a "Young Bobby Keys". The unswerving dedication, energy and commitment of his playing is gaining huge ground; he’s a wanted man with heavy weight credentials. Having performed and recorded with many of the UK’s top Jazz and Blues artists, including names such as Charlie Watts, Ronnie Wood, Dennis Chambers, Mick Taylor, Jools Holland, Chris Jagger, Elliot Randall, Davey Payne and Lulu. He has been part of the Bad Manners cohort, as well as touring with The James Hunter Six, Nine Below Zero, Tankus The Henge, Crowd Company, The Ben Waters Band, and Squeeze.

With a passion for New Orleans rhythms and Blues infused melodies, Chris has brought together a crew of London's finest brass players, to transport you to the likes of Frenchmen Street and The Maple Leaf, the heart of the New Orleans' music district.
