The Brass Monkees were the most fantastic band, they helped to make the evening wedding party go with a bang. They were absolutely fantastic and their choice of music was excellent for the venue. They were also very friendly and listened to everything we asked for. The dance floor was occupied all night and our guests loved them. We would totally recommend them to anyone who wants a great evening. Thanks for making our wedding go with a swing guys. Mary and Ivor. X

The brass monkees were hands down the highlight of our wedding, apart from the getting married bit of course! They surpassed all our expectations and their 3 set performance was just incredible. An amazing bunch of very talented people. Our guests absolutely loved them too and did not leave the dance floor! Highly recommend!

Brass Monkees played at our Summer Party on Saturday after coming highly recommended to us and they certainly didn't disappoint! The band were full of energy and the dance floor was buzzing all evening. We've had so many great comments from everyone, they really helped to make the party a big success. A great combination of songs and a really great touch coming out into the crowd, standing on chairs to play their instruments, fabulous!

The Brass Monkees played at our wedding recently and were absolutely amazing! Our dancefloor was packed and our guests loved them. The encore was a brilliant moment with the brass section of the band taking to the dancefloor. We would highly recommend them and we are looking forward to seeing them play again soon. Thanks for making our big day so special! xxx
