AN HISTORIC venue will be heating up for for a musical explosion of colour.

The Mustard Brass Band is set to take the Electric Palace, in Harwich, by storm on Thursday at 8pm.

The young collective based in Bristol features local lads Jimmy and Tom Monahan, who play a contemporary take on old New Orleans jazz.

Jimmy is an internationally-acclaimed clarinettist blowing his instrument in various bands from the Crescent City itself to far-off Finland.

His brother Tom keeps the toes tapping with his trombone.

For this special one-off gig, Jimmy takes up the tuba under his alias Jimbino Vegan.

He said: “If you enjoy life you will love our music and if you don’t enjoy life you will after you hear it - harmonic remedies for any ailment.

“We guarantee you will be touched by this modern sound from the birthplace of jazz.”

Making up the hot septet are Pete Warner on snare drums, Kai Carter on bass drums, Greg Stirling and Pearse Tamplin on tenor saxes, and Linda Joy on cornet.

Tickets for the concert cost £10 per person and can be bought online at or in person at the Harwich Box Office, Dovercourt Library.
