Excellent band - a great evening! The Bonndorf Brass Quintet entertained us at our Oktoberfest - got everyone up, dancing, drinking and laughing. They were punctual, polite and entertaining - and great musicians. Highly recommmended.

The band played for my Dad's 90th birthday party and we could not have wished for more. They are brilliant musicians and were very accommodating to play my Dad's favourite music. They were engaging, polite, friendly and fun and really made it a special occasion. There were guests at the party ranging from 18-99 and everyone enjoyed the band.. They helped make it a memorable party - I thoroughly recommend them.

We hired The Bonndorf Brass Quintet for an Oktoberfest event at our Social Club and the performance they gave was fantastic. As well as traditional German music they had a playlist which everyone could sing (and dance!) along to. I would certainly highly recommend them and I know that we will be looking to have them back in the future.
