Dutty Moonshine Big Band: 1930's Sounds Meet Dirty Bass Music As Unstoppable Dance Floor Monsters Roar Into Brighton

Back on track - Dutty Moonshine Big Band - have conformed a rescheduled date in Brighton, as well as an upcoming album release.

Earlier this month, in light of recent events, the band made the difficult decision to postpone both their current UK Tour and new album City of Sin.

After curtailing their UK tour part-way through, the twelve-piece outfit will now reconvene in the Autumn for their remaining dates.

The news also comes as the band announce a new release date for their second album City Of Sin: 29th May 2020. Moved back from its original release date of 17th April.

Looking on the brightside, frontman Michael Rack AKA Dutty Moonshine says:

"It was paramount for us to make sure that the public and our fans are safe in these unprecedented times so moving the tour had to be done. 

"At least doing it this way round you will have had a chance to get learning the words for the new album. 

"We can't wait for you all to see the show live." 


Dutty Moonshine Big Band is the brainchild of Michael Rack, a successful DJ who"s toured four continents and entertained thousands upon thousands with his take on 1930's sounds meets dirty bass music. 

Five years of Dutty Moonshine Big Band has seen the twelve-piece grow year after year into an unstoppable dance floor monster, never failing to pack venues and fill up the UK's biggest festival arenas.  

Blending brass, keys, drums, digital hardware and vocalists, Dutty Moonshine Big Band are renowned for their ability to create explosive bass music that is inspired-by the classic big band sound of days gone by. 

On their second album, City Of Sin, the outlaw outfit hone their craft and deliver eleven tracks designed to take the listener on a uniquely multi-genre, bass-heavy, dancefloor-destroying journey.
