With funky, beat-driven arrangements of classic and modern pop tunes, they are sure to bring a party atmosphere to any event! Backstage Brass is a six-piece Brass Band (2 x Trumpets, 2 x Trombones, Tuba/Sousaphone and Drum-Kit), performing a huge range of repertoire in a variety of styles to suit almost any event; from weddings to festivals, private parties to corporate functions...even bandstand gigs and traditional concert recitals!

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.

Everything is included in our quotes.

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.

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.
