Hey hey, it’s the cool and brass gang!
The Hypnotic family is back in Dublin for a very special gig at The Button Factory. They are opening up for none other than De La Soul!
What can I say, these brothers are like wine, their gigs get better each year, I am glad I could once more appreciate it.
From the classical themes like War the ensemble also played first time a few new tracks of the upcoming album… stay alert and dont miss it.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
