Hire a Marching Band to Light Up Your Los Angeles Event

When hosting an event in Los Angeles, it’s crucial to choose entertainment that will engage and excite your guests. A Brass Animals marching band can bring a high-energy performance to liven the crowd and get people singing and dancing. They might even start a second-line parade!

How much does it cost to hire a marching band?

The cost to hire a marching band in Los Angeles varies widely depending on the event you’re hosting, the size of the band you hire, and for how long they perform. A 20-person band is going to cost less than a 300-person band. The band’s experience level will also impact cost, with high school marching bands typically costing less than college and professional marching bands. Bands might offer flat rate packages or they may charge hourly rates. When researching marching bands you might want to hire, visit their websites to find rates or request quotes. Also, check out their online ratings and reviews to see what past customers say about their performances.

What kinds of events can marching bands perform at?

Marching bands perform at all kinds of events, such as football games, bar mitzvahs, weddings, and corporate events. Several parades feature marching bands. In Southern California, marching bands play in the Disneyland Parade, the Hollywood Christmas Parade, and the Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena. Marching bands can customize their performance to fit the needs of your event. You might want a performance in a set time and location, like a halftime show. Or, you might want the band marching its way through a crowd, engaging with people at the event. Either way, the right band will happily work with you to pull off a fun event.

How many people are in a typical marching band?

Marching bands vary significantly in size, anywhere from under 20 to over 500 musicians. A marching band typically consists of a band director who leads an ensemble of brass, woodwind, and percussion players. Some marching bands have complimentary visual components, like color guards, which can add to the overall number of performers.

What kind of venue is required for a marching band?

Venue requirements depend on the size of your marching band and what you want from the performance. Marching bands can typically play in a set location, march through crowds, or down a parade route. Consider how much space you have for a marching band when planning the details of your event, and communicate clearly with the band.
