Lovely group, perfect for our spring wedding. Would highly recommend.
Fantastic group, extremely friendly in the run up to the wedding and absolutely fantastic on the day. They were brilliant in the Church Service, and played beautifully at the reception. I would strongly recommend them!
Friendly, enthusiastic and went down very well with our fans. Would definitely look to use at any other events.
Everything about the process was very easy and professional. From all the help Nicola Edge gave me with the booking, finding brass phonics and helping me make sure we booked them, to the guys themselves who were fun, friendly and very entertaining. We've had some great feedback from the fans and I would definitely work with Warble and Brass Phonics. Many thanks for everything, Dan.
We were delighted with everything about our booking. Our queries before the event were dealt with quickly and efficiently. On the day BrassPhonics exceeded our expectations and the day was enhanced by their performance. We have received many compliments about the event all mentioning the quality of music. Our opening ceremony included the Act of Remembrance and many of our military guests commented that they had never heard the 'Last Post' played so well. We would not hesitate to recommend BrassPhonics and to book them again.
Smart, professional and played our requested music beautifully - we were very appreciative of the discreet and respectful presence at my father's funeral. Thank you very much.
BrassPhonics exceeded all of our expectations with a thrilling performance at our private party. Oli and the team were incredibly helpful and flexible with their responses to the brief and they absolutely wowed our guests on the night. I would recommend them without any reservation.
BrassPhonics played beautifully for my wedding and made the ceremony extra special. The coordinator for the group was very helpful and replied to my emails fully and quickly. All in all I was thrilled with their performance.
Thank you guys, you made our event a very memorable one. Everyone said how wonderful the music was and what a great send off! Thank you.
