Absolutely sensational, worth every penny! I booked Head Rush Brass Band for my nans funeral as it was her wish to have the band play her in and out. WOW they most certainly delivered! ABSOLUTELY EVERYONE said how INCREDIBLE they were and they definitely became talk of the event - something people will remember forever. From the moment I enquired all the way up till after they performed the band were great, we had a few special requests, extra band members, new songs and specific dress attire - they accommodated it all! Thank you again to the whole team from myself and my whole family for really making what could be a sad day such a celebration of life, you guys went above and beyond and we highly recommend!!

The band were absolutely brilliant and perfect for our garden party. They did a first class job of entertaining the guests (of all ages) and adapted the set list to perfectly suit the mood.
