Why settle for bland organ music when you can walk down the aisle to rich, warm brass accompaniment that will thrill you and your guests? Perfect for outdoor ceremonies, churches, and large halls - our brass music will fill the space with brilliance and make your wedding ceremony unforgettable. And for your Cocktail Hour, our 5-instrument ensemble sounds like a classic big-band mixed with a jazz quartet. We cover all the eras of swing, jazz, dixieland, bossz, latin, pop -- from Glenn Miller to Miles Davis and from Louis Armstrong "What a Wonderful World" to Sinatra and The Rat Pack, Stan Getz "Girl from Ipanema" to Alicia Keys "Empire State of Mind" or Christina Perry's "A Thousand Years".
All of this is with 5 brass musicians (2 trumpets, 1 french horn, 1 trombone, 1 tuba)
The members of The Chamberlain Brass have performed with The New York Philharmonic, The Metropolitan Opera, The American Symphony Orchestra, The Orchestra of St. Lukes, The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, Radio City Music Hall, and many other top ensembles in New York City and beyond.
As leader of the group, I'll be working with you one on one to coordinate the music for your event from repertoire, energy level and instrumentation to schedule and more. We will discuss the event schedule and all other details will be laid out in advance with a written contract so the music takes care of itself, everything flows smoothly and professionally, and you can focus your energies where they are needed!
We have an over 500-song database from which to draw from, classical music from the renaissance to the romantics, jazz from the 1920's to the present, the classic American songbook, as well as Brazilian bossas and more. The Chamberlain Brass consists of only the highest level of professionals out there: courteous, well dressed, gentlemen or ladies, and most importantly, incredible musicians that will give your party the life it needs, whether it means we pick it up a notch with energy or just provide quiet, unobtrusive background music.
As well, we carry a full liability insurance policy; many venues, restaurants, and country clubs require proof of insurance from all outside vendors, and our fee covers those expenses as well.
Our fees include all travel expenses, liability insurance, parking, cartage, booking fees, and taxes. There are NO hidden fees or costs that a typical agency would add on.
Do check out our online music samples and videos, and get a sense of some of the different styles we do and different instrumentations, as well as the high quality of musicians you'll be working with. Remember, we tailor the performance to your needs from instrumentation, repertoire to volume level and more! And read our reviews so you can see what our satisfied clients had to say about us. We have a 5 star rating for a reason!
I look forward to making your wedding magical!

I loved having Chamberlin Brass as my ceremony musicians!!! They were amazing and the responsiveness and how easy it was to book them was def a plus. They even played "a thousand years" by Christina Perri in brass as my special request to walk down the isle. Everyone loved the special touch they added to my church wedding. Even our priest raved about them. You guys were amazing and super affordable. Thank you so much for everything!!!!Sent on 03/07/2013

The Chamberlain Brass Group did a outstanding job for my wedding at the Park Chateau. Franco scheduled a meeting with us (he even went out of his way to a location that was convenient to us) and he was nothing short of professional. He we delightful and answered all of our questions and put us at ease. Franco was extremely accommodating in all of our requests and very economical. Highly recommend!Sent on 04/10/2018
He was always to quick to respond by email or phone call. Franco worked with me to create a beautiful music selection to fit the elegance of our wedding. He showed up early, and played for the both ceremony and cocktail hour. His staff (5 piece) looked fantastic - dressed for the part in suit and ties. All of my guests raved on how lovely and professional they were.
You will not be disappointed. Thank You!!!!

Working with Franco and the Chamberlain Brass was one of the highlights of planning our wedding. As two students of music, who first met in a college music class, who were being married by their college music professor, we definitely wanted the music to occupy a very special place in the day. Being married in a hotel setting, we wanted something that was both grand and intimate, that underscored the true emotion of the ceremony--and did we ever find that with the Chamberlain Brass. Throughout the planning process Franco offered expert advice and guidance as we made our selections. We'll long remember walking out of the elevator outside of the ballroom and hearing the Chamberlain Brass playing--what a rich and wonderful sound. Our guests said that the music performed during the ceremony was some of the most beautiful they had ever heard--for us personally, our wildest expectations were far exceeded with every single note.Sent on 11/09/2014
