Customer questions

Do you have different line-up options?

Our standard is 5 (2 Trumpets, Horn, Trombone and Tuba) but we can go out as 4/3 or even as a duo and solo musicians.

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

We always try our best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let us know.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

We don't currently offer this but would look into it for the future

How much time do you need to set up?

We can rock up anywhere and be ready to play in minimal amount of time! (but I'd allow at least 15-30mins to be safe)

Can you roam around while you perform?

Sorry, no.

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

Our set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to ensure guests have an amazing time. However, we're definitely happy to chat through and make sure we find what works for your event.

Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?

We don't use electric amplification but we will bring our own stands for music and arrange if we need chairs with the venue.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

If a song isn't included in our song list there may still be a chance we already know it. If there is a special song you'd like us to learn we are happy to do this for you. There is a fee of £50 for this service to take into account rehearsal times etc

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Our professional demeanour and high quality musicianship.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Various weddings locations and churches, Centre Parcs - Elvenden, RAC club London and many more.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Too many to list!

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

We were featured on the Amazon Prime/BBC production of 'Good Omens' - St James' Park scene in the last episode. You can hear us play and see our members amongst the extras on set in that scene.

Reviews

From customers:

ST M, 2 years ago

“Chapel brass are a brilliant ensemble of talented young musicians, with versatility at Concert Hall, Church Service and Street Festivities. They are a refreshing resource of talent and a pleasure to work with.”

WESTMINSTER F, 4 years ago

“Chapel Brass were excellent when they played at our Country Fayre in June 2015. They arrived on time, with all their own equipment, dressed smartly. The music was fantastic and they played a mixture of songs catering for many different tastes. We couldn’t have asked for more!”
