Brass Band Hire For Weddings
Not many couples planning their wedding entertainment immediately think to hire a brass band for their special day. Surprisingly, a brass ensemble is a superbly versatile way of having great live wedding music to cover several key parts of the day.
Brass Band Hire: The Wedding Ceremony
Your guests will be excitedly waiting at the venue eagerly anticipating the arrival of the loving couple. This is a perfect opportunity to entertain your guests whilst they wait for you. A brass band can play such a wide variety of music so they can play different genres as required. Perhaps a light classical repertoire would set the tone for the formalities of the wedding ceremony. They could even perform a fanfare as the couple arrive along with some pomp and circumstance as they walk down the aisle. Pieces of music such as the Trumpet Voluntary are ideal for this. The band will also be able to play as the married couple and guests leave the venue and make their way to the drinks reception.
Brass Band Hire: The Drinks Reception
Although the British summer is quite unpredictable, the majority of couples do tie the knot and keep their fingers crossed for good weather on their special day. A brass band is just perfect for an outdoor drinks reception for weddings and other celebrations. Bands such as High Society Brass Band can perform anything from jazz to easy listening and even some fun pop covers to entertain your guests.
What’s more – they look great and, as they are completely acoustic, the band can move indoors and continue at a moments notice if the weather does turn inclement.
How much does a brass band cost?
Prices to hire a brass band start from as little as £450 for a 4 or 5 piece band depending on location. A typical performance is for around 2-3 hours of live music which is enough to cover both the wedding ceremony and the drinks reception. We think this is terrific value compared to other artists.
