About Brassroots

The ultimate party band. Great music, incredible musicians and music like you've never heard it before all led by a true showman.

Public liability insurance of £10 million

As always Brassroots continue to be the most sought after juggernaut of the currently booming brass band scene around London and the U.K. Championed by BBC Radio1’s Giles Peterson, the chart topping band has been blessing the scene it pretty much started 14 years ago with the ferocity of a London squat party. Growing, evolving, always funky and revving it up a few notches for the young bucks to have something to aspire to. In the immortal words of Oscar Wilde, “Imitation is the best form of flattery that mediocrity can pay to greatness.”

Dear Jerome and the rest of Brassroots, THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! You guys killed it! You were the perfect band for our wedding party! All of our friends and family have been raving to us nonstop about how amazing you guys were. Everyone loved it so much! You have helped set the bar VERY high for the next couple weeks of weddings a lot of us are going to. Thanks again for suggesting and having me up to play as well. I loved joining you guys and it was a nice surprise for a lot of guests to see me play with you. It occurred to me when you guys were playing “Dang” by Mac Miller that I had a missed opportunity to play “What’s The Use” while we were getting the bass into the PA at the start of the second set. Oh well! Thank you for being so clear, helpful and friendly in all our communication and organisation leading up to the day as well. The whole process was an absolute dream and completely stress free! You guys sound amazing and are such fantastic people. We wish you all the best and will hopefully cross paths again at some point!

Hi Jerome As Sam and I are nearing the end of our honeymoon I thought I would write a quick note to say thank you for playing at our reception. You guys were fantastic and all of our friends have been saying how good you were - it really made the day for us having everyone dancing at the end with you guys playing. Once we get some pics back from the photographer I will send them on to you. Hopefully see you at some point in the future when we come to one of your gigs.
