We have performed in many of the local churches - the Royal Norfolk Showground and at various private garden parties and garden centres.

The line up can be increased to 10 or even more if required. A full Concert Band or Brass Band might be available if requested.

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

We try to be as accommodating as possible but do give us as much notice as you can.

How much time do you need to set up?

The Quintet can normally set up in approximately 10 minutes.

Thorpe L, 4 years ago

"Hello Wensum Valley Brass A special "Thank You" from the Thorpe Branch of The Royal British Legion! I am sure that we all improved our "brass" knowledge and we really enjoyed your musical offerings. Please keep us informed of your future concerts. Regards

Dear Eric Many thanks to you and the Quintet for setting the scene so well at our celebration on Saturday . It was very much appreciated and the right choice of music for the occasion. My apologies for not supplying liquid refreshment whilst you were playing. I found to my horror that had we run out of the appropriate glasses and the lemonade for the Pimms, minutes before you finished. It all went very well .Mary and I left ourselves with quite a lot to do on the day which meant there were a few loose ends Looking forward to seeing you in September
