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! Melissa V. Winter

Art Gallery OpeningReviewed on July 1, 2022From Minneapolis, MN

I highly recommend booking the Brass Menagerie! Exceptionally talented musicians and fair pricing. Sue, the band manager & coordinator was very accommodating to our events needs, listened, and communicated well! I had booked a jazz trio for a private dinner & art gallery opening per request of the featured artist. Our guests absolutely loved the ambiance The Brass Menagerie created and our event was quite the success!

Brass Menagerie - TC Top Choice:

Thank you, Kit! Our Jazz Trio had a great time performing at your event and were treated extremely well. If you find yourself in need of musicians again, please keep us in mind!

Private PartyReviewed on January 18, 2020From Minneapolis, MN

Our organization was celebrating our 100th anniversary. The band's selection of music moved effortlessly from the 1920's to the 1960's to the 2000's with ease. They had a full sound and got the audience on the dance floor. Attendees raved about the band. My only regret is that I did not hire them for 3 hours but only 2. Everyone had a great time! Will definately consider hiring them again!
