Can the ensemble perform a bespoke piece of music for us?

Yes. We would need to discuss this at least 6 weeks before your event, this allows us time to write and learn the bespoke piece of music and perform it to our high standards.

What happens if my event is running late?

Most events rarely run on time, however, we are always ready to play at the agreed start time. If your event runs late, we cannot play past their contracted finish time unless agreed before date of your event with both the customer, Kent Brass and the venue. Kent Brass cannot accept any responsibility for the timings of the event out of their control.

What happens in the event of rain if i've booked you to play outside?


Due to our music being paper and the damage that could happen to our instruments and equipment Kent Brass do not perform in the rain. It is your responsibility to provide adequate cover to cover the whole ensemble and a dry area for cases in the event of rain. If the Kent Brass performance has to be reduced due to adequate cover not being provided the full fee would still charged.

Is it possible to come and see you before booking?


Due to the nature of our client base, most of our bookings are private. However, we occasionally play public events, so it is always worth asking us. If needed we can arrange for you to vue us while we rehearse.

Do you have insurance against accidents and damage at venues?

Yes! We hold public liability insurance.

How loud do you play?


The ensemble play throughout a full dynamic range but as professionals we can play as loudly or quietly as you like!. We would advise that even though the ensemble is able to keep the volume down, we are live Brass instruments so careful seat planning may be advisable.
