Bangers and Brass fitted the bill in every sense. From the initial enquiry to the final beat James and Jake’s professionalism and attention to detail were second to none. For our corporate event we wanted to create a setting where our guests could enjoy the music without it being too overpowering. The combination of the live Trumpet and DJ incorporated all tastes and genres, resulting in an ambient atmosphere that made the event very special. Their performance throughout the evening ranged from more chilled styles to more groovy songs and this flexibility was something many guests commented on. As well as multiple genres James and Jake were more than willing to take requests on demand, with no request being too much hassle. Overall, we would highly recommend Bangers and Brass and can’t wait for our next event!

Bangers & Brass created the perfect atmosphere at my drinks party this Summer. They asked what sort of vibe I was after, I gave them a couple of special requests and they took care of everything from there. Having the live trumpet added to the afternoon- they certainly gave us a party to remember.
