The igniter of the party !
My wife and I were on the fence about hiring a band to perform at our wedding because we found it extremely difficult to find one that could execute our vision and work within our budget . Through the search process, we either found that bands were priced at a premium, having you question whether they’d be worth it, or were affordable but only had decent reviews, appeared as mediocre, and/or lacked a “wow” factor. There was a moment where we felt that hiring a band felt forced because “it was the thing to do” but we couldn’t find the right fit. This feeling quickly dissipated when we came across Brass Animals- from the moment of connecting with them, we knew they were what we were looking for.Sent on 08/01/2019
Ben was communicative throughout the planning process and beyond helpful when it came to providing us content from their previous wedding gigs. He was also really detail oriented and organized when it came to planning leading up to our wedding day. We had a specific vision in having Brass Animals play softer, more conversational yet fun jazz music during our cocktail hour but then to perform alongside our DJ during the reception, improving to the melody of the DJ set while engaging with the crowd . Ben understood our need and coordinated with our DJ in advance to make sure everyone was on the same page. The band perfectly executed what we were looking for- they pivoted between improving with the DJ while working the crowd to playing more coordinated music alongside the music (songs like Havana, California Love, Touch the Sky, and I want you back). They were extremely lively, fun, and always on key !
Ben and the Brass Animal band were unreal and outperformed our expectations. They not only executed our vision but created such a powerful impact at our wedding, creating a unique feel to the night and fueling the party. If there was one thing our guests were talking about, it was Brass Animals. Everyone came up to my wife and I saying they’ve never seen or experienced music performed at a wedding like what the Brass Animals did on our special day.
Brass Animals was such a crucial piece to our wedding experience and we can’t express how unbelievable they were- do not have any hesitations in booking these guys !

Best Brass Band in the Bay!
This was actually our second time hiring the Brass Animals, so we knew we'd love them for our wedding. Our wedding was a day-time, brunch wedding so we wanted something fun and unique from our band. Ben is so responsive, so experienced, and was so accommodating to bring our vision to life. Our venue initially had some concerns about volume level, but Ben and the group are so experienced with all different types of venue requirements that concerns was quickly eased.Sent on 07/03/2019
We had Ben and the band lead our guests from our cocktail hour into our reception space with a fun, roving introduction! Ben played emcee for us throughout the day and totally read the crowd for what people wanted.
As I mentioned, this was our second time hiring them, as we hired them for my husbands 30th birthday party and we fell in love with them and attended several of their gigs around the Bay Area. Ben is willing to work with you to make your vision come to life at a budget that works for you. We could not recommend Brass Animals any more highly! Book them!

Best Energy, Look No More
The Brass Animals set the tone for our entire wedding. The energy and excitement from our guests really connected everyone as we walked and danced to the reception. Our wedding was so unique, we have been told countless times how amazing it was, thank you to the Brass Animals. The music was awesome, a selection of old and new, made it so hard to pick. We can't imagine what the day would have been like without them. The day was so special and will forever stand out as one of the best weddings ever to many of our guests since it was so different and festive. Stop thinking about, and book them, you will have no regrets.Sent on 07/11/2019
