Code of Behaviour are an Irish brass band based in Cork City. Their style is a blend of pop, jazz and overall madness, striving to make each moment a party. The set consists of their own arrangements of modern covers, traditional New Orleans standards, and original tunes.
Dr Sous, the band’s debut live sessions EP, was recorded in 2020 in the midst of the pandemic and released in February 2021. It includes both original tunes and pop covers, and was recorded with the band socially distancing from each other in a large hall. The EP was released in the hope that it would bring some much-needed smiles to faces during those tough times.
Since the release of Dr Sous, the band have made an emphatic return to live performances, at Kilkenny Day, Cork Jazz Festival, and Magic Nights at the Lee, as well as their usual busks around the country.
They are incredibly excited to be returning to St Patrick’s Festival and bringing their infectious energy to the Festival Quarter.
The band is made up of trumpets, trombones, mellophone, saxophone, sousaphone and drums, with occasional singing (and dancing) thrown in the mix.
“An exceptionally talented group of young lads” that you won’t want to miss!
