The Inglorious Brassterds cover a wide range of traditional and modern music – from mardi gras parade anthems to the swampy funk of The Meters and Dr John, through to brassy covers of rock and pop songs by the likes of Justin Timberlake, Stevie Wonder, Outkast, Kings of Leon and Guns 'n' Roses.

Brand new and exclusive to Function Central, The Inglorious Brassterds are formed from the cream of London's jazz and pop musicians, with session and live performance credits ranging from The Ronnie Scott's All Stars and Soweto Kinch to Tom Jones, Dr John and Amy Winehouse. The band have already won plaudits from the likes of The Meters.

From time to time I stumble on a band that totally blows me away... The sound they have put down is perfect. Craig Charles - BBC Radio 2 Funk and Soul Show

The band are equally comfortable playing brassy background music at a afternoon garden party or wedding reception as they are whipping up a storm on the dancefloor late at night.

On request, the band are available as a 6-piece featuring an outstanding blues and soul vocalist as their charismatic frontman. Perfect for late night events.

“The band were amazing. If you want something different to your average run of the mill wedding band but still want to get guests dancing then they’re highly recommended. We had a disaster with our caterer so things were behind schedule when the band arrived, but they worked with us to reorganise set times and were happy to chat to our guests.”

John, Wedding, London, September 2018

“The Inglorious Brassterds were amazing. Our guests loved their performances and they created a fabulously joyful old school New Orleans atmosphere at my garden party. Thank you!”

Caroline, Garden Party in Wandsworth, June 2018

“The band were excellent - friendly and flexible and were just what we needed. They played trad jazz outdoors to start with then played pop covers for dancing later on. All my guests were asking where we found them, and have been asking for their details!”
