Das Bras was the perfect group to get the party started at our wedding! Our guests absolutely loved them, as did we! The communication in the lead up was really easy and efficient, and we appreciate how adaptable Paul was when we had to change timings etc. thank you so much!

When looking for wedding bands, we came across Das Brass- as luck would have it, on the same day we were browsing, we found they were playing a gig five minutes down the road from us! We went along to see them play and immediately knew they were the perfect ensemble for our day. In the run up to our wedding, we also saw them perform at Glastonbury, further cementing that they were the right choice! Bring on our October wedding and the 5 piece group who played were Incredible and brought the most brilliant vibe and tunes. They performed a spectacular cover for our first dance and DJ Dials Davis went from drummer to decks for the rest of the night. Would happily book again and again!

A fantastic band and all brilliantly talented! We hired them for our wedding reception and they blew every guest away. Their repertoire got everybody onto the dancefloor and when they finished their set outside while the sun was going down it created a moment we (and our guests) won’t forget! We feel very privileged to have had Das Brass there and we couldn’t thank you all enough!

We booked Das Brass for our wedding in Newcastle. Sadly we had to postpone once in 2021, but there were no issues in doing so and the band were great throughout. On the day they were true pros and played a cracking set for the audience. I'd highly recommend to anybody!

We just wanted to drop you an email and say thank you so much for your set at our wedding. It was so energetic, so well rehearsed and absolutely the perfect way to get our party started. We've had so many compliments off everyone saying how good you were. In fact you brought my grandad to tears. He absolutely loved you. We wondered if there was a way we could leave a review or share images/videos to your page? Once again, on behalf of Lucy and I, we'd like to thank everyone involved. You absolutely smashed it. You really were an inspiration. Thank you so so much. Kindest regards, Vicki & Lucy
