I really want to have a great party with everyone on the dance floor - are you the right act for that?

Absolutely! Brass Monkeys add saxophone, percussion and trumpet accompaniment to their DJ set: bringing your favourite tunes to life with an exhilarating injection of live musical performance. Their flawless instincts as DJs, coupled with a breathtaking musical ability and some of the most cutting-edge music production available make Brass Monkeys the ideal booking for anyone looking to add a real wow-factor to their big event.

Do you take requests on the night?

Of course! Brass Monkeys have access to a wide range of music, so there can be something for everyone!

How long do you take to set-up?

90 minutes. If you are organising a wedding or event where the evening reception is in the same room as your meal, she will often arrive to set-up while the room is turned around.

What time do you play and for how long?

At a time to suit your event, standard prices are for 5 hours of live DJ music with live music features, any time between 7pm and midnight.

What is the website guide price based on?

The published guide price is based on the act perfroming at a venue within 30 miles of their base in Brighton. They charge travel costs for venues further than 30 miles, and if your venue is more than a 2 hour drive, they charge a bit extra so they can book accommodation. For an accurate quote please contact Tailored Entertainment with your event date and venue details.

Can you provide music for our drinks reception or wedding breakfast?

Yes - Brass Monkeys offer a daytime and evening package where they can provide background music during your drinks reception and/or dinner.
This can include live sax.

Do you have your own PA and lighting?

Yes – all included in the price. You won't have to hire any additional equipment in.

Our venue has a noise limiter, can you work with that?

Yes, Brass Monkeys regularly work at venues with noise limiters. We are happy to contact the venue in advance of the event to make sure we have all the required information to enable us to plan accordingly.

Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?


Will you play our first dance?

Yes, as long as we have advance notice of the song, we will make sure we have it to play.

How much space do you require?

Ideally 2m x 4m as a minimum.

How much power do you require?

2 x 13-amp sockets is fine for our system.

Do I need to provide food/drinks?
