About

Hosen Brass


Hosen Brass are a five-piece brass band, often quoted as being “off-the-wall”, playing all your favourite pop rock and metal tunes. We take influences from the worlds of Pop, Jazz, Classical Music and New Orleans as well as (of course!) the world of Oompah Bands and Bavaria.

 

 

Made up of Professional Freelance Brass Players, we have rocked audiences of up to 45,000 people live and have played at some big venues including the likes of the Etihad Stadium, London’s Old Tobacco Docks and Old Billingsgate Market. We’re Saturday nights resident band at London’s leading Katzenjammers Bierkeller and are also the only English band to have performed at Bavarian Beerhouse. We’ve appeared on Channel 4’s Hollyoaks (in more than one episode!), BBC Radio, BT Sport, ITV and Free Radio Birmingham, Beautiful Days Festival and headlined Saffron Waldon’s 8 Day Weekend. We also featured in US Magazine ‘Relix’ as a part of their Mardi Gras write up, having our famous version of RATM’s ‘Killing In The Name Of’ listed as one of “five brass band covers that will make your head explode with awesomeness.” as well as several other ‘best brass band covers’ lists. We’re also the perfect street band – check out some of our videos where we can be seen playing on Birmingham’s Canals, at bus stops and even on the bus!

Weddings


Have you ever wondered what Hosen Brass Oompah Band would be like at your wedding? We always go down a treat!

Hosen Brass can offer unique entertainment at your Wedding Reception. We will come dressed as you like, whether it be Reception Shirt and Tie, or in our Traditional Lederhosen. Our music will be the perfect highlight to your Special Day.

Hosen Brass can also work as a ‘traditional’ five piece Brass Ensemble specialising in playing hymns at your Church Ceremony as well as any other piece you would like as you walk down the aisle.

We’ve recently had a lot of demand for an oompah band playing couples and their guests from the church to a local reception venue. Depending on what time of day you require this, we can usually offer it at a lower rate than the standard full performance, or even an added extra on top of performing two sets at your function. If this is something you would be interested in then please get in touch!

Did you know;

– During wedding planning, Brides say their highest priority is their attire, followed by the reception site and caterer – reception entertainment is among the least of their priorities

– Within one week after their reception, 78% of Brides say they would have made the entertainment their highest priority!

– When asked 81% of guests say the thing they remember most about a wedding is the entertainment

We are not only suited to Christian Weddings either. We have had various enquiries recently about playing our fun Pop-Oompah fusion as a Band Baja at Indian Weddings/after parties. If this is something you are interested in please do get in touch!

You can be safe with the knowledge that Hosen Brass will provide a memorable experience for your guests, and can be suitably vetted as we regularly play public gigs including Katzenjammers Bierkeller in London every Saturday. Hosen Brass Oompah Band will also offer you a discount if you book weddings between Monday and Thursday!*

Our standard performance includes three 30 minute sets. If you have any special requests/requirements please feel free to let us know, as we are often up for something different!

*Discounts are subject to availability. Book early to avoid disappointment.
