About Shake Your Brass

A powerful sounding instrumental band from South Wales. Come and shake your ass to shake your brass!
Shake Your Brass's profile picture
Cover band
Cardiff

Bass: Dan Drums: Tony Percussion: Charles Alto Saxophone: Rachael Tenor Saxophone: Joe Le Saxi Trombone: Tabzie Trumpet: Morgan We are completely unique in our style of performing as we do not have a singer like most bands, instead we are instrumental sharing the 'lyric' part across every player. At the moment we are currently a cover band, performing our own arrangements of Drum and Bass covers such as Pete Tong, The Prodigy and many more. Our covers are composed by Rachael and Morgan where they both work hard creating whole new twists and turns on the classic pieces making them sound completely new. An aspect we love to include which other bands do not, is that we often include an improvisation section within the cover which allows several of the players to come forward and really showcase their talent. Recently we have invested into a synth device, where our bassist has created samples for our songs, something we could debut exclusively for your event. Within the band ourselves we range across all ages and personalities so when we perform together we really add passion and character to our set, creating a huge bubbly atmosphere that the crowds love. Before lockdown we performed regularly building up relationships with venues and people, where we are now confident to say that we have a continuously growing fanbase that will attend every gig. We busk regularly in Cardiff and from these sessions we have gained more followers but more importantly several gigs and projects that we are very fortunate enough to secure. Over the summer we have enjoyed performing in a vast amount of venues, including returning back to previous ones as we continue to give them very successful nights. Most recently we performed in the Hub Festival, in which we filled Bootlegger with our family, friends and fans and the crowd danced so much the speaker fell down. Thankfully no one was hurt, no equipment was damaged but it is proof we can provide energy and fun to the room. We can guarantee that you will not be disappointed when booking us for your event!

Customer questions

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

We have done some studio work along with performing in one of Cardiff's most popular club "The Moon Club"

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

We are influenced by, Pete Tong, Meute, and more pop, reggae, rock artists!

Will the singer be the same as who I see in the videos?

We work hard to make sure you will see every single original band member on the night. As a professional band, in case of emergencies we do have a dep list who are able to fill in for the evening.

Do you have different line-up options?

Our line up is as follows: Two Saxophone, One Trumpet, Two Drummers, One Bass and One Trombone

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?

This for sure can be possible, in order to make this work we will need to discuss what songs you want to be played around our sets

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually take 30 minutes to set up, with our soundcheck only taking 20 minutes, therefore we can provide a quick and easy start to the event.

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

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

PA is not included in the quote, unfortunatly we would need the venue to provide us with one. However, more than half of the band have their own mics and cables so we do not need as much equipment as most bands.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

If you would like to request a song, we would be more than happy to further discuss the possibility of it. If so, there will be an added £50 charge due to the extra time needed to create the arrangements and then rehearsals.

I saw Shake your Brass for the first time in the Moon, Cardiff. This gig was absolutely fantastic and displayed a wide range of talent and genres. They played a lot of notable songs and everybody there was very impressed too, singing along like myself. I highly recommend you catch this band on their next venture and cannot wait to see them.
