Classic Funk, Hip Hop and Soul from a versatile Brass Band!
The Duke Ellington Orchestra, Wyclef Jean, Sharon Jones and Wu-Tang are just a few of the international artists who have featured the members of Breakdown Brass. Sizzling horns, deep pockets and hard-hitting sousaphone from NYC's finest means we're not your average Brass Band! We destroy Funk, Motown, Classic Hip-hop, Salsa, Afrobeat, Reggae, New Orleans Jazz and whatever else makes NYC dance floors bump.
We have a long and diverse song list, plus we love to arrange special requests!
"Best wedding band ever!! - Breakdown Brass took the time to learn the tunes we asked for, and then played them in their own unique style, which we loved. They marched down the aisle with us at the end of the ceremony playing The Beatles' "All You Need Is Love", AND I got to sit in on snare drum and play a couple tunes too - very gracious of them.
Nadav was super easy to work with, and all the guys were total pros throughout the whole experience. To this day I have friends and family commenting on how great the band was at my wedding (3 years ago). They truly created a special and unique experience, and everyone had a blast!!!" - Duke/Rothwell Wedding, 2011
