A hub of cultural diversity and artistic vibrancy sits at the heart of Texas. The Greater Houston area is a thriving metroplex populated with event venues from the luxuriously extravagant to the charmingly quaint. You can plan your event inside the lavish loft space at The Astorian or within the floor-to-ceiling windows of The Crystal Ballroom at Minute Maid Park. The storied past of “Stonewall,” Station 3, or the intimate setting at Rockefellers on Washington Avenue are excellent choices for something less grand, yet still amazing. Live music is an excellent way to transform your event from special to spectacular, regardless of your chosen backdrop. Enter Brass Animals. We intertwine the soulful melodies of a New Orleans-style brass band with the flair of classical and modern music. Brass Animals shines as a premier Houston Brass band.
