Dutty Moonshine Big Band

Dutty Moonshine Big Band

The Dutty Moonshine Big Band are a 14-piece jazz trained big band fronted by hip hop and grime MCs, backed by a DJ and a producer with a taste for the bass. What more could you want? Have you ever heard Duke Ellington’s Caravan performed as a huge Garage banger? Or 12-bar blues manipulated into a half time DnB/carnival anthem? Or a New Orleans funeral song turned into a whiskey soaked mid-tempo breaks dancefloor destroyer? We know you haven’t because there’s only one band in the entire world like these guys!

The big band is the brainchild of Michael Rack aka Dutty Moonshine, a successful DJ who’s toured four continents and entertained thousands of thousands with his take on 1930s meets dirty bass. For the last two years the band has sold out every club show and played nothing but main stages at festivals.

Ladies and gentlemen – welcome to the most unique game changing band you’ve ever heard.
