Looking for a brass band to liven up an event? Well look no further than Brass Funkees, the perfect mix of the traditional British Brass Band and New Orleans Brass Band styles. With funky, beat-driven arrangements of classic and modern pop tunes, they are sure to bring a party atmosphere to any event!

They brought a great atmosphere to the occasion and we were hugely impressed by their upbeat, lively performance! Nomadic Brewery, Leeds

Brass Funkees is a six-piece Brass Band (2 x Trumpets, 2 x Trombones, Tuba/Sousaphone and Drum-Kit), performing a huge range of repertoire in a variety of styles to suit almost any event; from weddings to festivals, private parties to corporate functions...even bandstand gigs and traditional concert recitals! Backstage Brass is inspired by the British Brass Band tradition and the New Orleans Brass Band style, resulting in the perfect mix of entertainment and quality music making.

We are an acoustic act, in most cases, meaning we are fully mobile and able to adapt to most requests! We can also provide a PA for larger functions and outdoor performances, where required.

We provide a DJ upon request and all the relevant equipment associated with such demands, offering the full entertainment package under one banner. Our most prestigious event, to date, was at the home of Luisa Zissman, of Instagram and 'The Apprentice' fame!
