Few places in the UK - and beyond - can even begin to think about matching Bristol when it comes to live music and gigs. We've obviously got some seriously good live music venues and clubs but it's who's playing at them that really makes them what they are. Below, we've put together the gigs and live shows taking place at Bristol bars, clubs and music venues over the next month, so pick your poison and partake in some very pleasant aural entertainment.
Bristol gigs and concerts
After first firing up their instruments back in the mid nineties, Hot 8 Brass Band have been been around for two decades, during which time they've established their infectious brass, hip-hop, jazz and funk-infused sound as one that is cherished across the globe. Since their debut they've supported the likes of Mos Def, Lauryn Hill and Mary J Blige, performed in front of Wesley Snipes and Oprah Winfrey and stormed festivals including Glastonbury and Big Chill. Now they're taking to Colston Hall for a live show that will without doubt be some of the most fun you've ever had.
