The three of us formed The Brace Boys in 2016 and were quickly headhunted by the Walt Disney Company to be the inaugural band in the “Tiana’s Place” restaurant aboard the Disney Wonder cruise ship, achieving award winning status in the process with our renditions of Disney songs, Jazz from the Great American Songbook and own arrangements of popular modern hits. Since then we've gone on to write and perform our own shows aboard other cruise lines, at hotels and corporate events delivering our creative covers of current chart music, classic Motown hits and swingin’ jazz. With Kurt on vocals and cajon, Ben playing the tenor sax and John on the bass, our unusual line-up has a surprisingly impressive impact on the big stage but is just as capable of delivering the subtleties of a jazz trio in a small lounge. We look forward to hearing from you! Kurt, Ben & John

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

The enjoyment on stage we have between one another, the off the cuff performance, the camaraderie with the audience. Expect smiles and laughter!

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Within the cruise industry, we've performed on Disney, P&O and Saga ships. Individually, we've done national tours, musicals, Las Vegas stints and music festivals.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

The three of us have such different tastes in music, but there's some similarities. So if you asked us about whether we liked a certain artist or band, one of us will probably say "yes"!

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

To be the handpicked, inaugural band for Disney's new concept restaurant was an honour for us, and we do consider it a big part of what we are today.

Do you have different line-up options?

We are strictly a trio of vocals/cajon, sax and bass. We can not expand or shrink.

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

We'd like to assure you we're incredibly relaxed, so if plans change on the day please do not worry or panic! Just let us know and we'll make things work.

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

Of course, we can provide a playlist to come through our PA.

How much time do you need to set up?

More than likely, it takes us 1 hour to set up completely, but once the PA is set up we'll have our playlist playing to get the atmosphere set.

Can you roam around while you perform?

Yes we can! Our mics and instruments are all wireless.

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

No... However, feel free to ask us about requests prior to the event and we'll try our very best to get them in!

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

Yes.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

As mentioned previously, yes!

The Brace Boys are truly talented on every level. They bring charisma and a wonderful energy to the stage. They bring a truly exceptional set of music in whatever lounge they are in. We are lucky to have them working with us and are a true asset. Keep doing what you are doing!
