Customer questions

Do you have different line-up options?

Our line-up is as follows: 2 x Trumpets, 2 x Trombones, Tuba/Sousaphone and Drums/Percussion.

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

We always do our best to be flexible with clients to ensure the smooth running of events. Please keep us updated with expected timings where possible.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

We provide a DJ service between sets for an extra £150-200, dependant upon equipment required.

How much time do you need to set up?

We are usually set up and ready to play within 30 minutes (acoustic) or 45 minutes (amplified).

Can you roam around while you perform?

We are generally stationary as we perform, however we do move around from a staged position and also offer a selection of roaming tunes to open/close the event if necessary.

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

Our setlists are crafted from our experience of previous events, however, we always try to make the setlist as personalised as possible. We perform music from many genres/decades and therefore like to have the input of our clients as to what they would like to hear.

Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?

Everything is included in our quotes.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

We can learn requests, providing we are given adequate time to prepare arrangements.

We really enjoy the energy Backstage Brass create on stage. We love to play alongside each other and pride ourselves in maintaining a performance standard unrivalled by our peers.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

We have performed at a number of prestigious wedding and events venues across the UK.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

We are most influenced by similar New-Orleans style brass groups, such as Lucky Chops and Hot 8 Brass Band.

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

Our most high profile gig, to date, was a private event for a celebrity, at their home!

Backstage Brass played at our wedding in August and were a welcome addition to the drinks reception. They became the talk of the afternoon, so much so that two of my friends and wedding guests enquired about their wedding on the day!

We wanted a brass band for our joint birthday celebrations and were fortunate to secure Backstage Brass. They did an excellent job and I was particularly impressed by the way they accommodated our music requests.
