Five young and versatile brass musicians playing their own special arrangements of familiar songs, whether jazz or classical, and offering a unique sound for any occasion.

The London Brass Collective consists of five talented young musicians, who between them have already chalked up a great deal of performing experience. All five are graduates of either the Royal College of Music or the Guildhall School of Music & Drama. Between them, members of the Collective have played and rehearsed with some of London's top orchestras, including the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and London Philharmonic Orchestra.

The Collective have played at many weddings and private parties, as well as a number of prestigious public events. Recent engagements have included playing at: St Pancras International Station for Lord Coe and athletes from around Europe for the Olympic 'One Year To Go' event; an Independence Day Recital for the Ronald Reagan Foundation; the unveiling of Chopin's statue for the Polish Embassy; and at the Royal Festival Hall for HRH The Duke of Gloucester.

Members of the group have also played at Glastonbury Festival, for Gavin & Stacey’s Comic Relief band and for Professor Penguin, and on a number 1 hit record!

If you’re looking for something different, a versatile group that can play a very broad range of styles from jazz to classical with their own unique sound and style, The London Brass Collective would be a great choice. They require no amplification and can cater for all types of events, and are equaly at home playing background background music or fanfares at a wedding, giving a concert recital or even leading an education workshop.

What people say Help

  • Many thanks to the London Brass Collective who played in our garden during the afternoon of our wedding. The band were fantastic, playing a wide range of music which was perfect for the setting and occasion and really did add the magic to a quintessentially English afternoon tea. Thanks to all the band.

  • They were all outstanding! The music was just what we wanted and was prefect during dinner and had everyone in a great mood. The band fitted very well with the touch of the christmas element that we
    included in our wedding - it was joyful and festive!

    Chris, Wedding, Buckinghamshire
  • A huge thank you for everything Saturday night. You really set the mood of the party right from the start and it was greatly appreciated. It was fantastic to arrive and see you already set up and waiting patiently! One couple said they heard the music as they walked across the Common to the party which was exactly what we wanted.

  • Just wanted to thank you all for coming along to our Christmas Party last night. We have had many colleagues mention how much they enjoyed your music. You certainly got everyone in the Christmas Party mood and the rest of the evening reflected that. A fabulous start to a great evening!
