FLAT CAP BIG

Thanks for visiting our website! 

Fun and friendly drum and brass from the heart of Yorkshire.

Playing what they describe as ‘funky, poppy drum and brass’, Flat Cap Brass provide something a bit different for your next event. Whether it’s a wedding, festival, corporate event or a night in a bar, Flat Cap Brass can provide the perfect musical accompaniment to keep your guests entertained and dancing all night long.​

Made up of seven professional musicians with a wealth of big name experience, our band members pride themselves on the quality of each and every performance.

Our broad repertoire spans from Bruno Mars to Chaka Khan and from Wheatus to S Club 7. Flat Cap Brass play in a wide variety of different styles but the one thing we can promise is that all of our music is recreated in a bold brass sound. Our professional arranger can create a bespoke pop brass version of your chosen first dance or perform at the start of our set as a roaming band to make a statement from the first note we play!

Recent highlights for Flat Cap Brass include opening the main stage at Kendal Calling festival performing their version of ‘Brassic Park’, getting one of Liverpool Sound City festival’s biggest singalongs to ‘Angels’ by Robbie Williams, and representing the UK at the Haizetara street music festival near Bilbao. We’ve also performed for countless amazing weddings and a variety of corporate clients, including Welcome to Yorkshire, Meadowhall Shopping Centre, UA92 along with Cartmel, Beverley, York and Wetherby races.

You can also catch us performing in bars – most recently, our performances have included Salt Beer Factory in Shipley along with A Nation of Shopkeepers and The Hop in Leeds whilst also crossing the pennines to play at PLY and Wilsons Social in Manchester city centre. We’re currently looking forward to being the house band for November and December in Peaky Blinders bar in Manchester.

Don’t just take it from us – here are what some recent clients said about our performances

Honored to have been brassed in such a way – WHEATUS the band in response to our cover of their song ‘Teenage Dirtbag’

[The live sets you played] were absolutely FANTASTIC. Song choices and orders were spot on, and we had an incredible time. You and the band were a large part of what was a day long in the making, but ended up turning out better than we could have hoped for, so I just wanted to let you know how lucky we feel to have been able to book you.

We just wanted to say another big thanks to you and the band for helping to make Saturday even more special – as I said at the time, one of the guests told me “booking this band was the best decision anyone has ever made, ever.” And he insisted he wasn’t exaggerating!

We were SO excited for FCB to play our wedding and they did not disappoint! They were great throughout the entire booking process, moved our date when our original was cancelled, were patient when we were late and most importantly sounded amazing! The summer terrace vibes were exactly what we wanted and all our guests loved them. Would 100% recommend, going to be on that terrace listening to this tunes in my head forever!

Just to say a massive thank you to Flat Cap Brass for performing brilliantly at my daughter’s wedding on Saturday. They were so utterly professional and really started things off to a swing. Totally a huge part of our wonderful day. Can not recommend them enough. Thank you again.

We had Flat Cap Brass for our wedding in June and they were absolutely fantastic. We honestly can’t recommend them enough – they were not only brilliant musicians who got our party started straight after the ceremony, but they were professional, friendly and so accommodating through the whole booking process (including having to change our wedding date). Not only were we blown away with how great they were, but our guests have been raving about them ever since as well. I wouldn’t hesitate to book them for any event (including our post-wedding party hopefully) and would recommend them to anyone!! Thanks for helping make our day so special!
