The Hornzmen were created in 2008 by Jason Holcomb and quickly became highly sought after for their dynamic performances, especially in the corporate and private event scene. The group is comprised of some of the finest horn and brass players in the US and the UK. They have been in high demand as individual performers as well as members of a larger horn section, performing with groups such as Michael Grimm (winner of America’s Got Talent), Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, The Zowie Bowie Big Band, and Dominic Allen (formerly of the rock group Foreigner). The group combines funk, soul, rock, and jazz into an exciting blend, and has put together a list of songs that can only be described as hugely entertaining. Since its conception the group has maintained very busy corporate performance schedule having played to audiences all over the US and in the UK. They have performed in LA, Las Vegas, New York, London, Chicago, and many other. The Hornzmen have played in most of the major casinos in Las Vegas, including Mandalay Bay, The Venetian, The Bellagio, and Aria at City Center to name a few. They've been honoured to have performed with and opened for Blake Sheldon, Glenn Fry and Joe Walsh, and Jerry Lee Lewis. The group can perform with a 5 to 10 piece band, as a duo, or with a DJ scratching behind them adding a unique contemporary texture to the performance. The Hornzmen have also performed and recorded with international superstar Matt Goss. In September 2011 they recorded a live performance with Matt at Capitol Records in Los Angeles and have performed two sold out shows at The Royal Albert Hall in London. The Hornzmen have relocated their base of operations to The UK and have begun performing for international audiences throughout Europe.
