The London Brass Collective consists of five talented young graduates from the Royal College of Music, who have performed with some of London's top orchestras, including the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and London Philharmonic Orchestra.

The group perform a very broad range of styles including classical, jazz, Christmas carols as well as stunning arrangements of pop songs by The Kinks, Johnny Cash, The Pet Shop Boys and Bjork.

The collective have played at many weddings and private parties, as well as a number of prestigious public events. In 2012 they performed at St Pancras International Station for Lord Coe and athletes for the Olympic “One Year To Go”' event.

The band were fantastic, playing a wide range of music which really did add the magic to a quintessentially English afternoon tea. Rachel, Wedding at Sopworth Manor in Wiltshire

More recently they performed at 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!

The quintet needs no amplification/access to power and can cater for all types of events. They’re equally at home playing background music, fanfares for a wedding, giving a concert recital or leading an education workshop.

Highly recommended!

“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 in Buckinghamshire, May 2019

“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.”

Rachel, Wedding at Sopworth Manor in Wiltshire, September 2017

“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.”

Susan, 50th Birthday Party in London

“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!”

Kaz, Corporate Christmas Party in London
