Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

We are the only brass band in the UK creating AUTHENTIC New Orleans second line music, the way you would hear it on Bourbon street to the French quarter. HBBB studied with Rebirth Brass Bands own Keith Fraizer honing the skills necessary to respectfully and authentically perform the NOLA brass band tradition. Largest wedding venue in the USA? New Orleans.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

If we had a list of all of the wedding venues HBBB has performed at in the past, it would be too long to fit in this box. We perform at venues all across the UK and regularly return to many of them knowing the in's and out's for surprise entrances and the best spaces to create an electric performance

Do you have different line-up options?

We can operate between a 3 and 9 piece band. 8 is the optimum number for sound, value and impact. A 3 or 4 piece band takes on a slightly different approach and is more suited for afternoon jazz club style performances.

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.

How much time do you need to set up?

As an acoustic outfit we can be ready to play in 10 minutes. if using amplification we require at least a 60 minute soundcheck. We generally aim to arrive 1 hour before the start of the first set or soundcheck.

Can you roam around while you perform?

Yes - we perform acoustically so we can move around freely.

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 dance and have an amazing time. However, we're definitely happy to chat through and make sure we find what works for your event.
