GRAND ISLE FIRE BRIGADE WISHES YOU MERRY CHRISTMAS! In red vests and Santa hats, GIFB celebrates the holiday season with Christmas Carols and Holiday Favorites! Being a small group, and requiring no amplification, GIFB can wander in a big venue from one room to another and work close in with your audience. We are small enough to fit in most large homes. We will warm your guests with tunes such as "Hark the Herald, Oh Christmas Tree, Up on the Housetop and more and more!

Grand Isle Fire Brigade (GIFB) is a 5 piece band modeled after "The Hungry Five" a group that was directed by famous arranger Harry Alford, in the 1930s. The Hungry Five was unusual instrumentation in having 2 clarinets, trumpet, trombone and tuba. The music enjoys the rich depth of a brass quintet, with the additional variety and blend of clarinets. The band is quite versatile including tunes from Ireland, Spain, Italy, India (!), ragtime, Broadway, and even some oompah rock.

GIFB started in 2010 and have since played for Christmas Fairs, Oktoberfests, Weddings, and St. Patricks Events from Redding to Merced, from Grass Valley to Morgan Hill. We have worked for private parties, backyards, River Cats Stadium (through their PA), and lakeside picnics. We were featured in a historic fire truck for a Christmas Parade and can even fit on a boat. We're waiting to get hired for a ski festival. Have you thought of sending a Christmas Carol band to 5 of your favorite customers? How about a band to brighten those Christmas lights, or entertain those special Christmas guests? We're ready to hear what you need.


Do You Require Amplification and a Stage?
One or GIFB's discriminators is we do not typically require amplification. For this reason we can move from place to place easily without a lot of equipment, logistics and setup. We are mobile! That said, if your venue has a stage and PA we can certainly play through it if you like.

Where Can I See Some Samples?
We invite you to send us a friend request on Facebook (Grand Isle Fire Brigade Street Band), and check our videos on youtube.

Who are some of your references?
GIFB are regularly booked for corporate events, community groups and private parties. We have played for the Cities of Placerville, Sacramento, Redding, Corte Madera Beautification Committee, Elk Grove, Nevada City, the Rotary Clubs of Davis, Woodland and Valley View, Country Clubs in Sacramento and Los Altos, Intel, Anheuser Busch, Klinker Brick Winery, the Culinary Institute in Napa, and dozens of churches and private parties. The band can add a touch of class and a bit of something different to any event and can perform anything from traditional Bavarian music in the background to a full Bier Fest for your guests.

If you like what you hear, let us bring a little bit of European style to your next event!

Grand Isle Fire Brigade made our event! They were fun, interactive, and talented. They were also a pleasure to work with both before and during the event. I will be using them again next year.

GIFB performed at our senior living community tonight, and our residents and their guests loved them. They were entertaining and so lively! We would love to book them again the next time we have another Oktoberfest!
