An NYC brass quartet that is not afraid to "jam"! Trumpet Marmalade, have been taking the city by storm! Their virtuosic playing always makes a huge impact on the audience. Perfect for concerts, proposals, wedding ceremonies or cocktail hours, corporate events, birthdays and more. They play all the styles extremely well and can cover any song you need, without any cables or power outlets!
"These musicians really kick ass!" -You
Trumpet Marmalade went above and beyond my expectations in so many ways. They were super communicative, responsive, and accommodating from the planning stages all the way through my event. And their music - it was beyond fantastic. Everyone was raving about them and still talks about it. I recommend them wholeheartedly!!

Trumpet Marmalade began with humble beginnings as a tribute to the great Louis Armstrong. It has since grasped all of the different musical genres as an homage to Armstrong who was known for having liked "all musical styles".
What makes this ensemble special is their ability to go from classical to Sinatra, and from the 1920s in New Orleans to the 2020s in New York!
