Brass From the Past made our wedding reception magical. The dance floor was packed the whole night with our guests across 3 generations. Everyone loved the music and have been talking about it for months! Before our big day John was fantastic and easy to work with. The night went flawlessly because of the attention to detail they gave leading up to it. We couldn't give them a higher recommendation.

BFTP performed at my wedding reception this past weekend and the dance floor was overflowing from the very first song through the very last. They are one of those bands that 30 seconds into the first song you know you made the right choice, and your guests know they're in for a hell of a night. Working with John was super easy, and the family aspect the band has really helps you stay at ease throughout the process. We cannot recommend BFTP enough, and are looking forward to telling people we had them back when! Thank you guys and girls so much for making our wedding so fun!

Thank you John and the entire Band for such a fabulous performance. Our guests cannot stop talking about how BFTP completed our Wedding as an Incredible Event on the big stage. The staff at the Genesee Theatre was uniquely impressed as well. We have some fantastic pictures of you all on Stage that I will put together and send to you. Feel free to use them however you like. Patty and I really liked the photos on the BFTP Facebook page. Words can not thank you enough for making our day so memorable.

We are still on Cloud 9 from our wedding a few months ago. Every guest we have talked to since the wedding proclaims the band to be the best part of the night. The band accommodated all of our crazy requests and just simply killed it with a packed dance floor all night long. My brother-in-law also said how nice and helpful the guitarist and band members were with helping him set up his sound equipment for the ceremony (he sang for us and BFTP played acoustic guitar). We definitely plan to see the band again at one of their public gigs soon and already started recruiting some of the other wedding guests to come with us. BFTP Rocks! They were hands down the best part about the reception and they were easy, accommodating and responsive during the planning stages.

We had BFTP perform at our annual festival and they were AMAZING! Vocals and horn section were superb. This is a group of very professional musicians and vocalist. Our theme was the 70's and the girls even dressed the part. We got wonderful feedback from the community on how much they enjoyed the performance. They were very professional and a pleasure to work with. We would definitely have them back. I totally recommend them for any event.
