They’ve performed at Coachella, Womad, Jazz at Lincoln Center, Sydney Opera House and Carnegie Hall.

The documentary film Brothers Hypnotic, explores their music, work ethic, life and experience of being raised by their jazz legend father Phil Cohran. after screening in major cities and festivals, it aired on PBS. Their song, “War” was featured in the blockbuster hit movie, Hunger Games.

Arriving from Shambala Festival for one night in Birmingham, this is going to be a special party! More than just a concert, Hawker Yard brings a block party vibe in a unique ‘cargotecture’ setting of shipping containers, scaffolding, streetfood and independent soul. Doors open at 6pm, with support acts through the evening. After the main performance, DJ Silence (Feel The Vibe/ Sneaker Hawks) keeps things wavey until 3am.
