When not out on Lake Merritt looking for the Oak-ness Monster, Oakland is ready to party. Our Oakland brass band is ready to get that party started for you. What kind of events will we play?

It’s hard for us to turn down a good time, so there is a wide range of events that we play. If you’re a professional party planner, let us help you with the corporate events you’re planning. We’ll bring a lively energy to grand openings, launch parties, conferences, conventions, company functions, and holiday parties. Maybe you’re hosting your own event like a wedding reception or rehearsal dinner—we’re here for you. We’re also down with town events like parades (especially Mardi Gras), sporting events, and music festivals.

But why a live brass band? Can you play music that is right for my event? Yes, we can. And we’ll tell you why a brass band is the right choice. Who doesn’t want their party or event to be memorable and for their guests to have an amazing time? We want that for you, too. A brass band adds a special, not-often-seen element to an event. We have a hot playlist of jazz-infused popular hits that everyone loves. Whether we play in one spot or move through the crowd, we’ll bring the energy and get people on their feet (ask us about our second-line parades). If your event is more subdued, our live brass band can bring some light background music that is perfect for letting guests mingle and talk.

We play all kinds of events

"We had the pleasure of having the Brass Animals grace our stage at a little brewery in south Austin. Nobody knew what to expect but they brought the Fun/ funk/ heat/ love/ grooves. They covered familiar songs but in new and provocative ways. I highly recommend Brass Animals for any of your events!"
