About
Brass Menagerie is a ten-piece band from Minneapolis/St. Paul. We feature a sizzling horn section with great vocals and generations of memorable music - everything from the hot swing beats of the 40's & 50's, to the early years of rock & roll, plus a large assortment of tunes from the 70's, 80's & 90's thru today.
We also feature Mike Mothershed and LaRae Thompson on vocals. We play medleys highlighting 50's rock, the 60's and 70's hits, from the Doobie Brothers, van Morrison, Queen, Chicago & the legendary Motown Sound - even some great Sinatra/Tom Jones show-tunes. Our audiences always have fun and you can customize the playlist however you wish for weddings, themes and parties.

The best thing we can sell is our reputation, read our reviews and find out why we always receive 5 stars!

If you're planning an event and want it to be memorable, Brass Menagerie can help you put it all together. Since 1993 we've entertained the Twin Cities and surrounding region with concerts, dances, community events and special performances of all kinds.

Check us out and get in touch!

Brass Menagerie - one of the Twin Cities' and Minnesota's best bands!

Here's what just one of our raving fans had to say:

You guys ROCKED. I had numerous compliments on the band, and we had such a good time. Everyone loved it. And the music spanned ages, so the dance floor was full all the time!

I am so glad I took Kathy's, John's and Kim's advice to hire you. They said I wouldn't be disappointed, and they were absolutely right.

If you ever need a testimonial, here it is. I'd be happy to vouch for your great talents any day!

They were amazing!!! I would totally hire them again for an event. We had a wedding, and the venue coordinator told us at the end of the night they had never had so many people on the dance floor before. This band knows how to entertain!

Brass Menagerie did an excellent job performing at our wedding and were extremely accommodating to changes or quotation that came up before the wedding. On the night of the wedding they really got the crowd going and we received multiple compliments from guests on our band. I would highly recommend Brass Menagerie to anyone for their wedding or event.

Brass Menagerie was amazing to work with for our wedding. They made it so easy from start to finish. They provide us with a list of their songs and we were able to pick the music for the entire wedding from this list. Our guests absolutely loved the songs and the music. Our guest range was from 4 years old to 91 years old and everyone was dancing and singing along with the band. The entire band were true professionals from the first time I met them to when they were leaving. They made our wedding so special and our guests are still talking about the band.

Hands down the best band! They had the dance floor rocking all night, kept the crowd engaged, and got rave reviews from all of our guests. An extremely talented group that was very easy to work with. We will be looking for any excuse to book Brass Menagerie in the future!!

This band is amazing, inwould certainly recommend booking them if they are available. Our location booked them about 3 months ahead of their performance and it was most definitely worth the wait! They filled the room and then carried it all night.

Their website does not do this band justice. I booked them on a friend's suggestion, but to be honest became a bit weary after going through all the media files on their website. All my fears melted away as soon as they began their 3-piece jazz set. It was perfect background music to cocktail hour and dinner. Then when the rest of the band came on, the dance floor lit up. the band was tight, had great energy, and cast a spell on everyone in the room from Grandpa Jim to my 2 yr old nephew... everyone was getting funky. Ron was a pleasure to work with. I would recommend the band to anyone looking to have a good time at their reception.

Ron and the band was super professional and easy to work with they sounded great and were super friendly to us and our wedding guests on and off the stage they played fun music, the only complaint I heard was that I didn't book a big enough Dance floor. I'm still getting complements on the band. They were really just a nice bunch of people and came with absoluty no drama. They definetly made our wedding fun and didn't add stress.
