Looking for something a little different for your band or wedding entertainment? Dylan Tierney, manager of The Offbeats wedding band, tells us why a brass band are just the ticket for bringing the 'wow factor' to your big day!
Why should you book brass for your wedding ? Well there’s no question when it comes to the difference between booking a band with and without brass. Below I discuss the advantages of booking a wedding band with a brass section for your wedding!
The OffBeats are a 7 Piece Party band based in Cork City, with a 2 Piece Brass Section. We have a saxophone player and a trombone player in the band who provide all the brass lines for the night. Not only do they add to the depth of music, they’ll provide some extra energy to keep you and your guests dancing all night long!
1. The Soundtrack to Your Night
Do you want the soundtrack to your wedding to remind you of a night down in your local pub or late bar? Most wedding bands only have the core instruments, so that would be:
2. “The Look”
There is no doubt that having a brass section on stage not only adds to the depth and colour of the music, but also adds the 'Wow Factor'. This will really impress your guests; it's not often you see a band of this size rock out hits with the help of an epic brass section!
3. Hearing The Songs You Love, Played Properly
Has there ever been a brass line from a popular song stuck in your head? Of course there has! Think about the popular song Uptown Funk - I’m sure at some stage you have sung along to the brass lines in that song (I know I have!) There is nothing better than listening to a song you know really well performed live, and it being even better that what it was on the track.
4. Brass Sections Are Rare
There are not many wedding bands in the country with a brass section - this is what makes it even more special! You don’t want your wedding night to be just like a night down in the local pub, you want it to be special right?!
If the above hasn't convinced you, why not check out our promo video and hear exactly what a band with a brass section, like The OffBeats, sounds like?
We understand that not everyone can afford the full 7 piece band so we do offer a 5 piece band option. Along with our 5/7 piece Party Band, we also offer our lovely singer and keys player Leah and Rory to provide the music at your Wedding Ceremony, or ‘The OffBeats Jazz Trio’ to play and set the perfect mood at your drinks reception before the dinner.
