Mama Cabasa


Trumpet, Saxophone, Trombone.


We are Mama Cabasa and we are looking for an experienced, well-rounded brass player to join our team.

We are group of down to earth, experienced musicians who have been working together for about 3 years. We gig regularly around Bristol and beyond and meet weekly to rehearse and write new material. We have just recorded our second EP which is due for release next month. Our sound is influenced by a range of different styles from Funk, Soul, Rock & Blues.

Ideally our new member will have a good sense of solid timing, creativity and rhythm and the ability to get involved in the songwriting process.

Music is already written and available in sheet form (1hr 30 of original material including a couple of covers)

We also like our members to be organised and pro-active in terms of committing to weekly rehearsals and helping out with the smooth running of the band such as getting gigs, festivals etc.

Auditions will be held in Bristol on a date to be confirmed
Message us here with your email address attached and we will send you links to audition tracks and more info when you contact us, but also feel free to check us out on , You-Tube & Soundcloud.
