If you are hosting a party or event in the “Finest City”, you need nothing less than the finest entertainment for your guests. Our live San Diego brass band brings that something special all of you professional planners and event host-ers are looking for.


We love to party with everyone, so we are available to bring our music magic to a wide array of events. Do you want to liven up a corporate event like a VIP cocktail party, holiday party, happy hour, or company celebration?  Looking for something to infuse energy into a convention room or attract attention to your launch party, grand opening, or conference booth? And of course, you want only the best party animals to bring fun to the dance floor at your wedding reception or pre-wedding festivities, right? Is the town hosting a music festival, parade, or sporting event that needs something different?  We’ve got it all.

Can a brass band give your event the sound and style you are looking for? We sure can! We know that DJ’s are the typical form of musical entertainment for most events, but don’t you want something more memorable than that? Our band gives the most popular hip-hop, R&B, and dance songs a jazzed-up twist. Our live band brings energy to the dance floor; if your guests are a little dance-shy we can walk and play among the crowd or even start a second-line parade to get everyone out of their seats. If your event is more subdued, we’ve got the perfect level of background music to let guest mingle and discuss how awesome the entertainment is.

What events are appropriate for a brass band? Tons! We bring life to all sorts of events from personal parties to corporate/business events to festivals and parades. Wedding reception or rehearsal dinner in need of some dance music? Got it. Want to bring energy or attract attention to your conference booth, launch party, grand opening, or convention? Check and double check. Cocktail parties, holiday parties, and company celebrations—we’ve got them covered. Mardi Gras parade? Heck, yes!

But why a live brass band and not a DJ? Sure, a DJ can provide the same music that every other DJ plays and no one remembers. But live music, a live brass band, has the energy (think live concert versus the radio), flexibility, and mobility that a DJ doesn’t. We can play our jazzy version of popular hits as instrumental versions or with lyrics. The band can stay stationary or move through the crowd for an interactive experience. We can get the party going on the dance floor or play more subtle background music. Whatever feel and style you are looking for, our brass band has what you need.

The band performed during our monthly BBQ/Summer Sailstice celebration. Not only did they provide our club members and staff with a great concert, they were professional, communicative, and easy to work with. Additionally, having the band, on our event description definitely played a part in bring almost 300 people to our BBQ. Their funky brass band arrangements of pop tunes were perfect for our clientele--we will definitely have them back in the future."
