Truly outstanding - Drum 'n' Brass are a force to be reckoned with! James, Venue Launch, Corporate, Manchester

Over the past few years Drum 'n' Brass have become one of the most popular alternative wedding bands in Manchester and beyond. They've played at well-known venues such as Allerton Castle, The Great Tythe Barn, Great John Street Hotel in Manchester, and have also made appearances at prestigious events including Snowboxx Festival, Parklife and Creamfields.

The band don’t require access to a power supply, meaning they’re extremely mobile and performances are frequently tailored to incorporate movement through the audience! The band can also expand in size right up to 10-piece, for the best sound possible, and they can also provide an afternoon jazz trio set if required.

Highly recommended!

“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 :)”

“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!”

“The band were amazing!! All our guests absolutely loved it. The mixture of singing and melody was perfect. Thank you so much.”

“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!”

“The band were friendly & helpful, the music was fabulous & our guests loved it - couldn't have asked for better, thank you Drum 'n' Brass!”

10

“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.”
