I booked Brass Monkees for our New Years Eve event and I was absolutely made up with their performance. From beginning to end they were professional and easy to deal with. Their performance was phenomenal and we had so many people calling, emailing and telling us how fantastic they were and how they had made New Year’s Eve one to remember! I could not recommend them enough. Absolute pleasure to work with- thank you Brass Monkees and keep on doing what you do!

We just wanted to say a huge thank you for making our silver wedding anniversary party so special last Saturday. Everyone remarked on how good a party it was and I think that was a large part down to you. The atmosphere was really good and people were enjoying themselves. I couldn't have asked for anything more!!
