Whatever type of event you are hosting, if Big Fun Brass Band answered your request, you’ve hit the jackpot. Hire them! From beginning to end this experience was simply outstanding. As a host, you can count on the fact that Abby is going to arrange the most memorable performance for you because she is a responsive, organized, and thoughtful collaborator with an absolutely terrific personality. She quickly sets herself apart from others pursuing the same gig by making herself available to talk through details by phone (she called me twice from her vacation) and quickly responding to text messages, which is important, especially if you’re planning an event from out of state like I was. Our event was a small celebration of life, and the performance was executed flawlessly by a quartet of extraordinary musicians: Bettis, Jimmy, Justin and Matt. This ensemble of hard-working gentlemen are, without a doubt, awesome. In one breath they dispatched such soul-stirring notes that they had us crying, and in the next breath they had me and my husband dancing in our seats while we sipped Manhattan’s and enjoyed every sweet sound they played. It was an absolute pleasure getting to know this quartet, each of whom have spent a lifetime honing their technique, and we felt so fortunate to have them share their expert talents with us. Hire Big Fun Brass Band and you will be rewarded with an authentic New Orleans brass band that delivers an elevated experience that will never be forgotten by you, or your guests.
