Brassbound were phenomenal at our wedding! They were exactly what we were looking for and got everyone up on their feet dancing. Ann-Marie was exceptional from the start; she was really quick to respond to our enquiries and was so helpful throughout when it came to choosing a set-list. The band were really flexible about what we would like them to play, they even arranged quite a few songs especially for us! On the night they were prompt, organised and super energetic. We think our guests didn't know what to expect when the sousaphone came out but they were soon dancing! We can't recommend them highly enough!

Cannot recommend these guys enough. I booked them last minute with a very specific request and they were so brilliant. They went over and above my expectations and totally understood the vibe and atmosphere I was going for. They really made our event come to life. I would definitely book them again, without hesitation.
