The Line Up:


Full Tilt Collective are an 8-piece brass-heavy band playing an eclectic range of genres including funk, soul, rock, reggae, ska, hip hop and drum and bass. Influenced by the likes of Hot 8 Brass Band, Funkadelic, Toots and the Maytals and Sly and the Family Stone, frontman and founder Nathan Thomas was inspired to start the band following a road trip from New Orleans to Nashville. With members of the Collective including graduates of Guildhall and Trinity Colleges of music, much of the band has a background in jazz music, resulting in bombastic solos to complement their heady riffs and raucous live show.
