Brass Party is a group of eight local Perth musicians, taking classic dance tunes from the 90’s and 2000’s, and putting a brassy twist on them. Expect filthy funk, outrageous horn lines and face melting guitar solos. Ain’t no party like a Brass Party!

These eight good mates have been playing music together for years, since meeting at university. The band began as a once-off passion project with humble origins, back in 2015, busking out the back of Mondo Butchers on Beaufort Street. 

Since then, it has grown into a Perth phenomenon, regularly performing sell-out shows at the Ellington Jazz Club, performing at the Perth International Jazz Festival, and FRINGE WORLD Festival in 2021 and 2022.
