Dennis are the best new band I have discovered.  Based in Northeast England, their style is somewhere near the indie/folk/ska intersection.  They are an 8-piece band, with the standard 5-piece set up, plus trombone, trumpet and euphonium (and including a total of seven vocalists).  Then they occasionally crack out a banjo, tenor horn, and a myriad of percussion instruments (cowbells, triangles, a clapper, a gong(!), egg shakers, a hooter).
Their songs are very well written, all eight of them are excellent musicians, and they are great live performers.  I highly commend them.  Have a look at the Facebook page - the Music tab has two songs.  'Like' the page to get details of gigs, recordings etc.
