Influenced by the multiculturalism of Miami, the Miami Brass Machine plays a wild diversity of brass-based music, from New Orleans Jazz to Polka, Pop with lead vocals, Latin, Gospel, Klezmer, and Funk. We add much more than a typical band to create the atmosphere you desire. We also cater our style to every event to tailor to its exact musical needs.
Miami Brass Machine appears as anywhere from a trio to a full blown brass band with lead vocals and rhythm section. This allows us to cater to every event size. Consisting of trumpet, horn, trombone, tuba, drums and vocals, we are completely acoustic and mobile enough to play any type of event, such as processionals, parties, concerts, church services, traditional music venues, and more.
NEW ORLEANS/DIXIELAND, JAZZ
Miami Brass Machine is deeply rooted in the New Orleans tradition of street brass and drum bands. We bring this joyful, electric vibe to all our music. Our Jazz repertoire includes tunes from its very beginning, through the Swing era and beyond.
Nothing will create the Latin atmosphere and party vibe you seek like the sizzling horns of Miami Brass Machine.
POP, GOSPEL, FUNK/SOUL
Popular tunes new and old, the Miami Brass Machine showcases a vibrant power of horns with lead vocals to turn it up a notch. All members are cross genre and will bring the house down with some kickin' jams.
POLKA, GERMAN, OOM-PAH
Our brass instrumentation makes Polka a natural fit. Horns harmonize the melodies; bass lines are carried by tuba -- the way it should be!
Few genres make people want to dance as much as Klezmer does. From its Eastern European and Middle Eastern roots, we incorporate modern street life and grooves to the mix, to make a unique, contemporary, and infectious Miami Brass Machine style.
