The band's very FIRST gig was providing pre-show entertainment for their horn-band heroes, Chicago and Earth Wind & Fire.

We rise to the occasion of any size event, accommodate all ages and can tailor a show around most themes and events.
All of the band's material is well-rehearsed and includes; professionally written horn arrangements, rotating lead / back-up harmonies and strong dance rhythms.

REGARDING PRICE. We would need to talk directly....
Our price varies in event size, location, time of year, audio / lighting demands, sound / lighting engineer, song requests to be learned, etc. Hiring Late Night Brass is like getting a world-class group, but without the contractual hassle (or attitude) of a national big-name touring act.
Our standard ten-piece band is led by a dynamic male vocalist and a fabulous female vocalist. The rockin' four-piece rhythm section includes; keyboard, guitar, bass and drums. Our smokin' four-piece horn section includes; saxophone, two trumpets and trombone. Every musician is an exciting soloist, with the ability to ignite the crowd. Our band can also provide it's own personal audio / lighting engineer with a sound system for any size event. When your budget allows, we can even add more vocals, brass players (classic big band) and Latin Percussion.
Our high-wattage sound is reminiscent of most famous horn bands of all time; Chicago, Earth Wind & Fire, Tower of Power, Blood Sweat & Tears, Kool & The Gang, KC & The Sunshine Band,Denver & The Mile High Orchestra and many other artists that uses horns.
