A Touch of Brass

Sometimes you want the music to set the mood and create a warm, up-beat ambience, rather than be the centre of attention.  For your awards dinner, wedding breakfast or cocktail party - A Touch of Brass brings swing classics and timeless pop melodies to your guests through a mixture of trumpet and flugelhorn, plus the endless possibilities of the EWI (Electronic Wind Instrument - a blowable synth).  Professionally recorded backing tracks are used and the music is performed through a top quality, discreet PA system capable of entertaining from a few to a few hundred guests.
