We had the Brown Bag Brass Band at our wedding last April and they were totally a hit! It sounds like we had them do the exact thing you are looking for and it was amazing. It made our wedding stand out and very memorable - friends and family were raving about them specifically! We wanted them because I love the sound of horns and that happy vibe they have. We wanted a very fun upbeat vibe right from the beginning of the wedding so I had them start playing as people arrived (about 20-30 minutes before the ceremony) we also had cocktails at that time. Then they played while the bridal party entered. My bridesmaids who have been in other weddings commented on how awkward it can be to walk down the aisle with everyone looking at you but with them playing people were cheering and swaying around- not sure if that was just our crowd of friends and family but I have to credit the atmosphere to BBBB for sure! Was so fun and exciting for me to walk into as well! As soon as the ceremony ended they fired up immediately and led us on a second line!! So. Much. Fun! We all gathered around them at one point toward the end of the walk (5-10 minute walk - they probably remember how long it was). Then that led us all back to cocktail hour and they kept playing out on the lawn and walking around a little which was cool! After dinner we had another band play for the reception - they were awesome too but the uniqueness of BBBB is something none of us will ever forget!
They were absolutely professional - on time, came with more band members than we even agreed on which was awesome, professional, and looked nice! Attached pictures. They have songs they can suggest but are willing to work with just what you want too. For example they have a few ceremony songs they suggested for a typical ceremony vibe but when I expressed my wishes for a more upbeat ceremony they were totally up for changing that vibe but would go in whatever direction you are looking for!
We saw the Brown Bag Brass Band play and we immediately knew they were the band we wanted to hire for my husband's big 4-0 birthday party. They were amazing from start to finish! They were very flexible to our needs and extremely professional. They totally "made" the party. We started at one location and did a second line to another location. The guests loved it! There was a lot of dancing going on and everyone had a great time. I would highly recommend hiring this band. I can't wait to hire them again for my next party!

We hired Brown Bag Brass Band for our entire wedding from start to finish (ceremony, cocktail hour, reception) and they were absolutely AMAZING! I truly cannot say enough good things about them. Our experience was so smooth and easy. Joe met with us twice leading up to the wedding to talk about exactly what we wanted and how the day would play out. They took detailed notes and made sure no stones were left unturned. The entire group (we had a 7 piece band) was professional and fun. We had specific music we wanted in addition to Jazz (we like ska music) and they went out of their way to not only include songs we loved.. but they even learned a new song (one of our favorites) to be played for the grand entrance. Hiring BBBB was one of the best decisions we made about our wedding. Our guests absolutely loved them and many still talk about them and go see their performances today. We even went and saw them play downtown for our first anniversary back in April. I recommend them 100%. They will bring an energy and fun vibe to your big day that is infectious and will have even the shyest of dancers on their feet!
