If you hire Patriot Brass, you are hiring a group of randomly assorted musicians from a given area, and paying 2-3 times what the musicians are actually receiving. Patriot Brass is horribly mismanaged, and has a terrible reputation of not paying musicians on time. Sometimes musicians wait several months to receive payment. If you’re looking to grossly overpay for an unrehearsed marching band to play at your next event, and don’t mind hiring from an organization that has shown time and time again that they don’t respect musicians, then Patriot Brass is the right choice for you. If any of those thing bother you, however, there lots of other groups out there that are much higher quality and pay the musicians fairly.
I cannot thank you enough!!! Wow. You pulled together the most amazing band and tribute to Mary/ET. We could not be more thrilled. Thank you again!!!!

Please use this review, instead of the previous one, incorrectly mentioning Manchester, NH. Our correct Town is Manchester,Massachusetts. As the July Fourth Parade Committee Chairman, I presented this group to our committee and they were touched by their demo clip on their web-site and our vote was unanimous to have them be present in our Parade. Their presentation touched many Veterans who lined our Parade route, as well as many others who sang along with the patriotic songs that were played by the group. WE will have them back every year, to honor our Veterans !!!
I contacted Steve Behnke to perform in our yearly celebration of our Nations Birth, in our July Fourth Parade. The response from our Town and many Veterans who attended was overwhelming. We intend to make their presence a yearly event.
The Patriot Brass Ensemble was the icing on the cake for our Memorial Day Parade. Having true professional musicians performing for our Veterans and local residents proved to them that the organizers of this event were serious about quality and convinced everyone that it was well worth attending. Also, everyone is looking forward to next year when we hope the PBE will return.
I could not have asked for a more memorable tribute to our Veterans. The Patriot Brass Ensemble provided top quality entertainment for our senior community and made our Memorial Day celebration overwhelmingly special for all those in attendance. As an Activity Director, I can safely say that the performance by this wonderful ensemble is one of the most successful to date! I would highly recommend the Patriot Brass Ensemble to anyone who is looking honor our country's servicemen and servicewomen in a unique and meaningful way.
The Patriot Brass Ensemble were a wonderful group to have. They brought themselves to a personal level with our veterans and took their time to individual meet each person, The members of the ensemble appeared to genuinely care about our veterans and showed concern and compassion for all.
Saw the event on my computor screen out here in Victoria, Australia. Thank you Steve for inviting me to be part of your audience. I enjoyed it immensley & proud to share my heart to your Veterans.

Their mission is true, their music is exceptionally well played and performed! Bravo Patriot Brass Ensemble, the Patriot Guard CT is very proud to stand with you and your mission to bring music to our country's veterans.
Steve and his crew are great! They showed up on time, in great outfits, and their attitudes were so professional. They were excited for the event and they sounded great. The music was well arranged, well played, and of good volume. They were a pleasure to have at our event and you can be sure we will be using them again.
To whom it may concern:
I am writing on behalf of "The Patriot Brass Ensemble." They recently played at the New Jersey Elks, Army of Hope Picnic. Our goal is to assist the wounded heroes and families of those who made the ultimate sacrifice in Iraq and Afghanistan. We were
very impressed and enjoyed having The Patriot Brass Ensemble play at the picnic. They are very professional and very willing to help in whatever way they could. They stepped right up and performed the National Anthem when we ran into a problem. Their moving rendition of Amazing Grace brought tears to everyone’s eyes. They were very flexible when we had to rearrange our performance schedule. We look forward to working with them in the future and hope they will be a part of our picnic in the future.

The Patriot Brass Ensemble traveled all the way from New York to North Carolina the day of the wedding. The music was amazing and they were professional and very talented. I would recommend them to anyone looking for musicians. They really made my wedding cerimony special. Thank you!!
The Patriot Brass Ensemble performed at my uncle's funeral. Uncle was a WWII vet; we wanted to give him a special send-off. With the first chords of "Abide with Me," we knew we chose well. Their intonation was spot on, the timbre warm and uplifting. They played as we sang, "Eternal Father strong to save" and "America the Beautiful." At the interment, they played taps and the Navy Hymn during the flag folding ceremony. Everyone said the music was comforting. One more thing - this non-profit group really cares about their mission to our veterans. In a heartbeat, we would recommend them.
Thank you for adding a very professional and distinctive touch to our Centennial Celebration at West Point. We heard many comments regarding the ensemble's performance ranging from "phenomenal" to "incredible" and "just amazing". I find myself once again in awe of how much music can come from such a small group and how you seem to fill the room with it. I hope we have the opportunity to work together again and please feel free to add me to your list of very satisfied customers.Thanks again to you and the entire ensemble for adding the perfect touch to our event.
