King Brasstards are a great choice if you’re looking for something different and impressive at your event. Made up of seven professional musicians from Leicester, they have fast developed a reputation for being one of the most entertaining outfits around.
The seven piece outfit features a sousaphone, snare drum, horns and percussion, and they spent years honing their skills and performing in different guises before coming together to form a mighty ensemble that covers everything from contemporary pop, swing, jazz, soul and funk, all with a New Orleans twist. The band are fully self contained and mobile, making them ideal for festivals, weddings, parties and other outdoor and indoor events. They pride themselves on putting on a spectacular show, and their versatility in being able to perform a stage show as well as perform energetically in a field, means they are a superb choice for events of all shapes and sizes.

King Brasstards were quite simply incredible! They rocked our venue and entertained our crowd from start to finish. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending them and we are trying to think of a reason to have them back asap.

King Brasstards got our evening reception off to an immense start. They were a surprise to the rest of the wedding party and the entrance was phenomenal, as was the first dance song we'd requested. There were a couple of songs we hadn't requested, and they missed some that we had, but they were so brilliant that it really didn't matter - everyone was loving it and we had so many compliments on them afterwards too. The only constructive feedback I'd give is that it was quite hard to get a response in the planning and run-up period, but I know the band are incredibly busy and I clearly didn't have anything to worry about as they were total pros on the night. Would wholeheartedly recommend!
