We are New York's busiest brass ensemble -- entertaining audiences since 2010 with beautiful brass music! Currently booking weddingsm, Christmas & Holiday parties, concerts, and events.

Winner of The Knot "Best of Weddings" 2013, 2014, and 2015

We have a large repertoire, ranging from renaissance music, to baroque, classical, romantic, and jazz and, in addition to weddings, we play beautiful brass music for Christmas/Holiday events, church services, graduation ceremonies, and many other occasions.

We, as a brass ensemble, are the perfect choice for large halls, churches, or outdoor spaces where you need a strong, rich sound -- without amplification. Other ensembles, such as string quartets, will simply not fill up the space like a brass ensemble. It really is a wonderful, classic sound.

We look forward to working with you!

Below are answers to questions we frequently receive about brass wedding music, the difference between The Chamberlain Brass Quintet and a traditional New York wedding band, how to choose instrumental/classical wedding ceremony music, pricing, bookings, and much more. If your question does not appear below or the answer is not satisfactory, please contact us.

Why should I choose The Chamberlain Brass Quintet to play instrumental wedding music at my ceremony?

There's nothing quite like the mood brass music creates; brass wedding music is the perfect choice for discriminating couples. Professionally played by the The Chamberlain Brass Quintet — not an ordinary New York wedding band — this brass ensemble will move you and your guests with beautiful, traditional wedding music, making your ceremony an elegant, memorable, once-in-a-lifetime affair.

Which brass instruments are played?

We follow the standard configuration for a classical brass quintet, which is:
- Two Trumpets
- French Horn
- Trombone
- Tuba

How can I hear The Chamberlain Brass Quintet's music?

Simply go listen to our audio samples to play our most popular wedding ceremony music. If you don't hear what you need, we can create custom arrangements to suit your needs; just ask.

Is it possible to hear The Chamberlain Brass Quintet perform live before my wedding day?

There's nothing quite like hearing your brass wedding music, live! Most of our perfomances are at private events, but we do sometimes play in public where you can hear us. Contact us for more information.

What types of brass wedding music do you play?

We play classical, jazz, and traditional wedding music. On the Samples page, popular instrumental wedding music can be heard. Again, if you have other selections in mind, please talk to us.

My wedding is going to be outdoors. Is brass music a good choice for an outdoor wedding?

Brass wedding music is especially suited for an outdoor ceremony, or any large event. Traditional wedding music instruments like the organ, string quartet, or flute/harp duo can't fill a large space without amplification. This affects the sound. Brass instruments need no amplification, and have a bolder, richer, more impactful sound than a string quartet.

My wedding is indoors, but the church is large. How will brass wedding music sound in a space like this?

Our brass wedding music is ideal for cathedrals, large churches, and ballrooms. Again, smaller instruments require amplification, which cheapens the musical experience. Ultimately, the size of the hall or outdoor area and how many people are there will affect how the instruments sound. When we discuss your wedding day, we'll tell you what to expect in the actual space where we'll be playing.

How much does it cost for you to play at my wedding ceremony?

Depending on the distance from New York City and whether or not you choose to have brass wedding music during the cocktail reception, charges range from $300 to $1,500.

How much do you require for a deposit?

Twenty percent is required when you reserve the date; the balance is due on or before your wedding day.

What geographic areas do you serve?

We perform in the five boroughs of New York City, plus Long Island, New Jersey, and Connecticut.

For how long will you play at my wedding?

We typically perform wedding ceremony music that includes:
- Prelude while your guests are being seated
- Two- or three-tune processional music
- Music during the ceremony
- Recessional tune
- Postlude (music as your guests leave)
- Cocktail hour music (light jazz) is often added because it provides a tasteful, elegant accompaniment for the period before your guests are seated for the reception.

Do you play wedding receptions?

We are not a traditional wedding band that plays receptions. Instead, we specialize in brass wedding music for ceremonies and cocktail hours.

The Chamberlain Brass Quintet really made our wedding. We were delayed getting to our venue and everyone said they just kept playing on....Very professionl and would very highly recommend them. I am retiring next year so I hope to use them again for my farewell. Thanks again guys, Charles and Chris.

This is the second year that we have used the Chamberlain Brass Quintet. We have found them to be accommodating, professional and very talented. They played a variety of holiday songs at a volume that was perfect for listening but also having conversations with other guests. They are extremely easy to work and communicate with. We would definitely recommend the Chamberlain Brass Quintet, and would certainly hire them again.

From start to finish they were very professional. Communication was open and effective, and they provided excellnt music at my wedding ceremony at a price you can't beat anywhere. They even came out to rehearse with the organist before the wedding.
