Why Choose us?

Your special day deserves live music, which will add an extra dimension to your service or reception. Emley brass band is the ideal musical ensemble, as our ability to play music of all genres will enable us to tailor our performance to your requirements. The band is available as a full 25 piece traditional brass band, or a smaller 12-15 piece ensemble which is ideal for more modest venues. The cost of hiring the band reflects the number of people and the time involved. Individual players are not paid, all money is used in running the band, so the fee is likely to be less than a professional ensemble, though the quality is not!

“We booked Emley band to play as our guests arrived, providing background music whilst the photos were organised and taken. They stole the show. At the Honeymoon send-off the next day, all people could say was how fantastic the band were, and what an amazing atmosphere they created.”

Esther & Gary Brown, 2005

“The band lifted our service and the music is something we’ll remember for the rest of our lives”

Amanda & Alan Moore, 2006

“The band were simply awesome, having a civil service meant we spent some time searching for that perfect opening to our special day. The band simply blew the guests, registrar and ourselves away!”
