With a sound that combines soul and R&B from the 60s with the funk of today; the name certainly suits the vibe, we are talking about, Brass House Unit. BHU brings a hip musical experience that is brought to life by a talented sixteen-piece band and sizzling male and female vocalists; Ozzy Lino and Gloriana. The band was formed by Kevin Abela in 2014 and has since mastered the perfect mixture of soul, pop and funk. Brass House Unit has officially released their first single, titled “Limelight,” as well a music video featuring the band, from their up-coming album to be released early next year. With an excellent horn section, rock solid rhythm section and two energetic front singers, Brass House Unit is going to make you move, that’s the short of it!
