What people say Help

  • Everyone absolutely loved the band. They were really, really liked, people were really upset when they played their last song. Many guests and suppliers said they were the best wedding band they have ever seen! Incredible, thank you so much for travelling so far!! The first song was also an amazing cover that we requested :)

    Emily, Wedding at Pennard House in Somerset, August 2017
  • The band were absolutely amazing - everyone was asking us where we found them! They really got the party started - as reflected in the wedding pictures!

    Sarah, Wedding at Hackness Village Hall, North Yorkshire, July 2017
  • The band were amazing!! All our guests absolutely loved it. The mixture of singing and melody was perfect. Thank you so much.

    John and Becky, Wedding in Driffield, Yorkshire, August 2017
  • We were really nervous about finding a band who met the requirements of the venue (no amplified music!) but would still get the party going. We were so relieved when nearly all our guests were up and dancing on the first song alone! The band were really friendly and made the evening so special, especially when they started playing on the dance floor amongst our guests. I wish we could do it all again!

    Claire, Wedding at Cley Windmill, North Norfolk, July 2017
  • The band were friendly & helpful, the music was fabulous & our guests loved it - couldn't have asked for better, thank you Drum 'n' Brass!

    Jenny, Wedding, Rugeley, August 2016
  • There are just not the words to say how wonderful these guys were. They made the best day of our lives even more special. On time, professional with boundless energy and enthusiasm, without getting in the way or stealing the limelight. As a rule I don't dance, but I couldn't help it! The music was fantastic and the preplanned set list was perfect. My only sadness is that drum and brass don't seem to have a Facebook page in order for us to recommend them more easily, because all our guests loved them. Thank you so much from us both. If the situation arises, we'll certainly book them again.

    Freyja, Wedding, Leeds, July 2016
  • We booked Drum & Brass for our wedding in Suffolk this weekend and I cannot stress enough how utterly incredible they were. Nearly all of our guests were up and dancing from the first note. Hands down the best wedding band any of us had experienced. The guys then headed back to Manchester straight after- what an effort! Thank you, thank you, thank you for such an incredible show.

    Layla, Wedding, Suffolk, October 2015
  • Drum n Brass were fantastic, very energetic and upbeat. Exactly what we were looking for in a band for the evening entertainment and everyone was fully engaged in listening to the music.

    Kate and Sam, Corporae event, Liverpool, September 2015
  • Just wanted to mention how fantastic the band were, everybody loved them and they really put their hearts into it!

    Mark, Wedding, Stockport, July 2015
  • The music and delivery was perfect, but it as the energy and general sense of fun from the band that really made the night.

    Phil, Event, Manchester November 2014
  • Truly outstanding - Drum 'n' Brass are a force to be reckoned with!

    James, Venue Launch, Manchester June 2014
