We encompass passionate. virtuosic musicians from all over the world, who are notorious for spreading smiles and dance moves across the party! High energy, charismatic and exuberant shows are our trademark.

Capable of playing anywhere, at a moments notice; from large festival stages to roaming around street parties.

Das Brass were one of the highlights of the wedding- all the guests could not stop talking about them on the day and after. They walked us and the wedding party through the park and everyone else in the public was loving it too. The guys were brilliant and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for something a bit different that everyone will love.
