Testimonials

Battered brass were fantastic! We hired them for a 40th birthday celebration in a big country hall and they totally blew us away. The communication was great and easy to make all the arrangements beforehand and they were really flexible with our needs too. Their repertoire was so fun and kept the audience dancing for the whole time. They performed some great new Orleans style songs that fitted in with us really well.
Two of the drummers performed on stilts when they came back on which everyone enjoyed.
There were 35 of us and everyone is still buzzing from a few weeks ago. I couldn't rate them higher.

-Debbie Jones


Awesome . Occasionally a band comes along and you just know they are going to get lots of bookings.
