Want a fun, upbeat cocktail hour without music that overpowers guests?

Live background music can help get the party started off right.

The formality of the wedding is over and it is time for the wine and cocktails to flow as guests start to mingle, unwind, and talk about how amazing the bride looked. But it’s hard to socialize with one another when the background music is too loud to be heard over or the music is so boring it’s putting the guests to sleep.

Our WeddingWire 2018 & 2019 Couples Choice Award winning brass band is an awesome way to warm up guests for partying at the reception. We can provide upbeat, jazzy background music with or without a singer so guests can talk, laugh, and get into the mood for dancing later in the evening.

“Brass Animals are so easy to work with. If you want a special song to be covered, they got it. No need to stress as they learn new pieces to play all the time which makes it fun and current. It’s taking your favorite sounds and putting them to current tunes to keep the party alive. I loved having them at my event, everyone was dancing and enjoying such a different vibe then having a DJ or traditional live band. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for some fun flare to their big event or wedding.”

“Brass Animals were amazing! I asked them to play a second line parade after our wedding as a surprise for my husband and it went perfectly. Ben was so flexible and accommodating with last minute scheduling updates and minor location changes and everything was handled so smoothly. Our guests had so much fun walking around City Hall with the band, and most importantly, my husband loved the New Orleans-themed surprise. They were great musicians and I’m so happy with how everything went.”
