Unforgettable Weddings

Give your wedding guests an experience to remember with Brass from the Past – Chicago’s premier cover band.

Our brass band features a large horn section with 100% live instrumentals and vocals for unforgettable weddings. Whether we’re belting out rock classics of the 60s and 70s, or crooning soul hits of the 70s and 80s, Brass from the Past will have your guests energized and on the dance floor all night long.

Unlike an ordinary cover band, our 12 piece ensemble uses custom arrangements to keep each song true to its original sound. We pay tribute to legends of rock, soul, funk, R&B, and Motown with state-of-the-art equipment and stage lighting for concert-like performances.

Rated as one of Chicago’s best cover bands (CBS News), Brass from the Past tailors its massive set list to your specific requests, creating the ideal musical atmosphere for your wedding. Scroll down to review our wedding packages or to request a quote.
