Brooklyn Brass are a friendly Northern seven-piece Funk Brass Band from Yorkshire consisting of 2 trumpets, 1 saxophone, 2 trombones, 1 sousaphone, drums and 7 flat caps.

This group of professional musicians met at the Royal Northern College of Music over 15 years ago and from the Sid Lawrence Orchestra to the Halle Orchestra and the BBC Philharmonic to Ibiza DJ Jeremy Healy and the Prince Experience, it’s easier to count the professional ensembles in the North of England that these musicians haven’t played with than those that they have.

Brooklyn Brass are in high demand and have had some really exciting clients including England Cricket, Headingley, The Tour de Yorkshire, Magic Rock Brewery, Wetherby Race Course and Meadowhall to name a few.

They also played the main stage at Kendal Calling and Liverpool Sound City Festival as well as performing with Tim Burgess of The Charlatans and as the UK’s only representative at the Haizetara International Street Music competition in Spain.

“Sorry I didn’t get a chance to speak last night. I wanted to thank you and all the band so much for your amazing set. I had such fun, and so many people were saying how much they enjoyed it. It’s been a pleasure organising this with you, and you made the evening really memorable.”

Harriet & Luke, Wedding, Liverpool, September 2019

“You guys were amazing! We had such a great time and every song was top drawer. We had so many people say how fun the band was so thank you! Yeah we loved the amount of people up dancing non-stop! Cheers!”

Toni & Lawrence, Wedding, Halifax, August 2019

“Brooklyn Brass performed at our community event in York and were amazing! Their communication was great and they made the booking process so simple. Their mixture of old and new music struck a note with the different generations in the crowd and got them up and dancing.”

Community Event, York, July 2019

“My wife and I booked Brooklyn Brass for our recent wedding. Simon and the band couldn’t have been more accommodating. The whole process was completely stress free and the band absolutely understood the theme of the wedding and the sort of music my wife and I had hoped to hear. The band made our wedding that extra special and all of our guests commented on how great they sounded. Nothing was too much and they exceeded our expectations. We also booked the DJ package following the bands performance which was fantastic. Music was such an important part of our wedding and the band completely delivered.”

William, Wedding, Bolton, June 2019

“Brooklyn Brass are a pleasure to work with. Providing high quality, atmospheric funky tunes. Well versed in working the crowd, as they did with such aplomb at Holmfirth Food and Drink Festival and their gig at The Nook, Holmfirth. Top drawer musicians paired with real ale – brilliant!’”

Sheila, Private Event, Nottingham, May 2019
