Horns a Plenty is a 6 piece band that is 5 brass horns and a drummer. With our instrumentation we can play classical, Park Band, jazz, swing and all of the standard ballroom dance styles (East/West Coast swing, Lindy Hop, ballroom waltz, rhumba, cha-cha, tango, Dixieland).
We perform without amplification. This means we can play anywhere you want outdoors - on the beach, in a park or some outdoor party space. In a reception setting we give you the maximum flexibility as to where you want us to set up. And because we don't have amplifiers, microphones, cables or power cords, it takes us just a few minutes to set up where a DJ or rock band could take an hour or more. We can play for both a wedding ceremony AND the reception, and we can readily move between the ceremony and reception sites.
For wedding ceremonies, we work closely with you and your wedding planner. Most are happy with a mix of classical and/or romantic love songs. And we have a very good selection of ballroom dance music to choose from for your First Dance.
Beyond weddings, we perform music for private parties, swing dances, college graduation ceremonies, corporate events, restaurant evening entertainment, church services, public events or even an afternoon concert in the park.
Our standard price quote is $200/player ($1200 total) for up to 3 performance sets. The price can go both up and down depending upon exactly what it is your looking for, how much travel there might be, etc.
