Tom McGuire and The Brassholes return after a sold-out show at The Barrowlands early this year. The funk soul powerhouse from Glasgow combine rich arrangements and good songcraft with an untouchable live performance . 

The band formed busking on the streets of Glasgow and made a living from playing bars before bursting onto the scene with runaway viral debut single “Ric Flair”. Mere months later the band launched their debut album with a sell-out show at the 1000+ capacity QMU in Glasgow. Since then, they have gone on to secure support slots for Craig Charles and George Clinton, have become a firm favourite on the festival circuit, headlining a number of Scottish festivals, and have toured extensively in the U.K and Europe.

The band’s music is full of vitality, the sound of a new niche being cut, classic pop sensibility with high musicianship values and rewarding arrangement and rich production. At the root is soulfull song, telling stories and sharing experiences of joy, turmoil, loss, celebration, sadness, happiness, confidence, frailty. There are limited tickets left and doors are 7pm.

Live Comedy is back at The Bungalow on Sunday evening. This week’s Bungalaff 6 is hosted by Richie McMahon and features Mark Black, Allan J Park, Molly Buckingham, Steven Youngson, Mick Murphy and Harry White. The headline is Chris Forbes. Doors are 7pm and you can pay on entry.

The band pioneered the effective use of revived bellows-blown Lowland pipes, have consistently pursued a democratic group approach to their all-acoustic arrangements and frequently and successfully bridge the divide between Scottish traditional and “art” music, in collaboration with such institutions as the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Cappella Nova and such revered figures as classical violinist Yehudi Menuhin and avant-garde music luminary John Cage.
