Finding outstanding live entertainment for your next party or event is a breeze, our Chicago brass band is ready to bring the music! Whether you’re a professional planner or a private host, throwing an energetic dance party or need some mellow background music, we’ve got what you need.

What kind of events and parties are right for a brass band? We play a wide range of events from corporate (launch parties, conventions, conferences) to company functions (holiday parties, cocktail parties, grand openings, company celebrations. Our band also loves to help celebrate personal occasions like wedding receptions and rehearsal dinners. Count us in for community and city-sponsored events like parades (especially Mardi Gras!), music festivals, and sporting events.

If you want to make your event memorable to guests, a regular DJ isn’t going to cut the mustard in this town. A DJ can play dance music, but can he play those songs with a jazz-infused beat? We can! Our band can be stationary or mobile, moving around guests to give them an interactive music experience; we can bring the party and take the fun to new levels with our second-line parade or we can let your guests talk and mingle to our light background music. Whatever event you are hosting, we’ve got that something special to bring to it.

“Brass Animals was great to work with and helped me to plan the flow of our Mardi Gras fundraising party. Ben was easy to connect with, and the band was on time to the event and they looked great. Everyone loved the music and the Second Line Parade! They got the guests on their feet and dancing, and I had many people ask about the band and where to find them.”
