"Hosen Brass Band made a brilliant wedding band - they were something completely different and unexpected by most of our guests. Everyone loved the unique take on tunes old and new, and there was something for everyone to have a dance to in their set. The closing rock selection took us and our friends back to being teenagers, everyone dancing and singing aling - we loved it.
A comment from one of our guests: ""I’d never heard Nu Metal covered by a brass band before... regretfully, I imagine ...

The Hosen Brass Band was great. They attended our Christmas Carol concert on December 20th. There was so flexible, and played the music that we asked for them to play. I would definitely recommend them for future events.

- How long do you play for?We can perform for up to 90 minutes within a three hour session with breaks. We usually split this into either two 45 minute sets or three 30's, although we're open to suggestions. Usually a single set lasts no more than 60 minutes.

- My favourite tune is not on your list. Will you be able to play it?Yes, but as a brass band/ensemble we rely on having all our music especially arranged as it's not a simple case of learning chords as it may be with a lot of guitar bands, so we charge an extra fee to cover the cost of doing this for you.
