• Santa Barbara's favorite brass band

    Turn the ordinary into the extraordinary when our brass band plays at your next event.

Home » California Brass Band » Santa Barbara Brass Band

Santa Barbara residents might be loving their fair weather, but our live brass band is here to turn up the heat on your next party or event. Whether you’re a professional party planner or are organizing on your own, let our awesome Santa Barbara brass band be that something special your event needs.


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.

"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!"
