Brass Bandits are an authentic Brazilian brass band with a unique twist.
Performing impressive pop, rock, funk, samba, soul and salsa songs, Brass Bandits bring the celebration of Carnival Blocos to Europe. The Carnival Blocos is an annual celebration where the whole of Rio becomes a festival of colour and captivating music as thousands of people take to the street to take in the music of the "Blocos" street bands. The Brass Bandits were created with the aim of sharing the passion and power of this unique festival with the world.
The Brass Bandits were the brainchild of the band's renowned trumpeter; a highly trained performer who studied music at the world famous Julliard School in New York. The Brass Bandits perform both authentic upbeat Brazilian music and bespoke arrangements of popular tunes from the likes of Ed Sheeran, Sia and Elton John. This mix will add an infusion of joyful energy to your event, delighting guests with fresh, new musical styles and old favourites heard anew.
Past performances include appearances at various venues in London, around the UK, and throughout the world, including Capri, Italy. Boasting vast musical experience between them, the Brass Bandits have performed at countless weddings, parties and corporate events across the world. These talented and accomplished musicians have created a fresh and individual act that is guaranteed to capture the attention of any audience.
Coming as a 5-piece as standard, Brass Bandits consists of trumpet, alto sax, trombone, tuba and a full drum kit. You can upgrade this line up to a 7-piece by adding another trumpet and a percussionist. You can also reduce the band's line-up to a 4-piece by removing the trombone. They have a standard set time of 2 x 45-minute performances.
