Biography

East End Brass Band is a contemporary New Orleans inspired brass band. Hailing from the ancient streets of York the band has been rocking weddings, burning up festivals and smashing sports events since 2011. In 2015 EEBB played over 200 gigs.

The band is a powerful team of some of Yorkshire’s finest musicians packing an arsenal of percussion, sax, trumpets, trombones and sousaphone with a varied repertoire of over 60 tunes at their fingertips without a note of music in sight. This is a band that works without gimmicks, auto tune or backing tracks, we blur the line between band and audience by inviting the crowd to become part of the show and ending the performance in the audience, dancing on the tables or congaing under the stars.

The repertoire is a broad range of styles from jazz to pop, reggae to funk and New Orleans to ska.

Acoustic or amplified, sunshine or rain, indoors or out…….EEBB will get the party started

The secret of the band’s success is its flexibility and versatility. Playing acoustic the band can parade into a venue or pop up without warning at a drinks reception or corporate event, instantly becoming part of the party as musicians and audience interact. With amplification the band packs a powerful punch and has rocked main stages at Glastonbury, YO1 Festival, Soundwave Croatia and many many wedding parties.

Testimonials

“What can we say?! You and the crew absolutely smashed it on Friday. EVERYONE was raving about the music. It was beyond amazing. Thank you so so much. We’ll definitely be seeing you guys again, so much talent and we always have a great time when we see you. One of my friends said that the atmosphere you guys created was the best moment of her life!”

“Everyone and I mean everyone, has said that the band were fantastic. It is the one stand out comment that has been made. The opinion is that you guys made the party the success that it was and that you were the best that they had ever seen! I have been asked by a few for your details.”

“My wife and brother in law missed meeting friends on the Pyramid stage because we where drawn into your last set (I believe) up near the Circus area like moths to your fierce flame and enjoyed a rare and pure Glastonbury moment rivaling any of the best I have been privileged to see on my 7 trips to the site.”

 “Just want to say a massive massive thank you! for your generosity, professionalism, funky crowd raising involvement at the festival.  It certainly was one of the major highlights of the weekend and went down an absolute storm!”
Jordan at Parklife Festival

“You guys were absolutely fantastic – we couldn’t have picked a better band and the best pick of all our wedding choices. The dance floor was full all night – everybody absolutely loved you and the surprise on peoples faces was brilliant when you guys walked in.”

“You kept the party going all night,were so original and amazing fun.”

“What a performance! We are so so grateful to you and the band. You were absolutely legendary and gave us the best day of our lives. You are worth every single penny.”

“All our guests were completely blown away – there was so much chat the next day about you all, and not just for your musicianship!”

The pool jump was immense. Had it gone on any longer I think half the wedding party may have been in there with you.”
