From the start your enquiry will be dealt with by leading entertainment agency Tailored Entertainment. Tailored Entertainment specialise in exclusive representation of the best professional function bands in the UK and have a very select roster of top bands. So you can be reassured from the off that the band have met the high standards Tailored Entertainment demands of its acts and that you'll also have an expert team on hand to help with all of the planning and any questions you may have. The guys at Tailored Entertainment are available on 0800 564 2240 / info@the-brass-monkeys.co.uk and will be very happy to hear from you.

Book the band

Once you have decided that The Brass Monkeys are the act for you Tailored Entertainment will send a booking contract to you to confirm the booking. The contract features all the important details for the day and once you have signed, the band will sign a copy and confirm the booking in their diary. We ask for a deposit to secure the booking, with the balance payable by bank transfer seven days ahead of the day.


In the lead up to the wedding you are very welcome to contact us any time to discuss the plan for the day. Around four weeks before the day the experienced team at Tailored Entertainment will contact you to go over the final details - timings, first dance, song requests, final payment details etc. All of the details will be recorded and sent to the band in one simple final confirmation email, so you can be sure nothing will get missed and everything discussed will happen as planned on the night.

On the night

The Brass Monkeys will arrive fully self-contained with PA and lighting and will cover your whole evening of entertainment, so you don't need to hire a separate act or any additional equipment.

If your evening reception is in the same room as the meal/speeches, the act would usually arrive to set up in the turnaround time between day and evening. If the room or area for your evening is separate (or curtained off) they could arrive while you are eating to get set up (they would sound check when suitable and wouldn't interrupt the meal or speeches!) - it takes a minimum of 90 minutes for the band to get fully set up and sound checked.

A guide to a standard evening reception would be:

  • 17:45 - Act Arrive
  • 19:00 - Background Music On
  • 20:15 - First Dance - into DJ live show
  • 00:00 - Close

Timings are flexible to suit your needs. Brass Monkeys standard price is based on them arriving at 17:00 earliest and finishing as late as 00:00. For an early arrival or late finish outside of these times, there is an additional charge.

The Brass Monkeys can also cover your day music - with the option for an instrumental sax set, this is the perfect addition to your drinks reception and can really help set the mood for a great celebration. As the musicians are already booked to perform in the evening, the price of this set represents excellent value when compared to hiring a separate act for your daytime entertainment.

To discuss hiring The Brass Monkeys to perform at your wedding please call Tailored Entertainment for a friendly chat on 0800 564 2240, or email info@the-brass-monkeys.co.uk.

Wedding, Sopwell House, Hertfordshire
The act were absolutely amazing! Everyone was complimenting them all night I'm so pleased with my choice I don't think anyone else would have been as good. The live acts were just amazing. Thank you.
Party, The Spread Eagle, Essex
Literally one of the best nights of my life. Everyone had so much fun. Ellis and Matt were amazing! Would definitely recommend to anyone and we will 100% be booking again. My missus has already said she wants them for our wedding!
James & Ged
Wedding, Tunnels Beaches, Devon
These two were hands down the most amazing live act we’ve ever seen at an event. They just brought the whole dance floor alive with the sax and bongos - they couldn’t have got the vibe of our wedding any better and they were a joy to dance with. We WILL be finding any excuse to hire them again!
Wedding, Bingham Riverhouse, Richmond Upon Thames
We wanted to say a massive thanks for bringing the Party - we had such a great time!
Sarah & James
Wedding, Holcombe House, Dawlish
Thank you so much for the best day ever! You guys made our day. Everyone was saying how great you were this morning at breakfast! It turns out you were pretty popular at the wedding (all the guests are raving about you, you stole my thunder) and my mum would like to see whether you're available to play for her birthday party next year!
