“The best horn section in the world!” - Mark Ronson
The infamous Haggis Horns hardly need any introduction, having been at the forefront of the UK funk scene since they came to our attention as a horn section on the legendary album “Keb Darge Presents The New Mastersounds” in 2001. They then went on to form their own full band in 2004 and have three funkfuelled albums under their belt, “Hot Damn! , “Keep On Movin” (First Word Records) and recently released “What Comes To Mind” (Haggis Records) and have been rocking crowds the world over for years winning fans with their distinctive northern funk sound combining ass-shaking break-beats, afrobeat, soul and hip-hop.
