Northside Brass is a full service music group that offers unique music for weddings, private parties, and corporate events. They offer solo trumpet, classical brass trio, classical brass quintet, jazz trio, and a jazz quartet with a vocalist. Their small groups create a beautiful atmosphere with live music that your guests are sure to enjoy. They offer packages for both the ceremony and cocktail hour.
Check out some of their music here. We love "Autumn Leaves" and "Cannon in D"!
