Brass Attack is a group of very seasoned musicians playing LIVE music.  When we perform for you, no pre-recorded music tracks, vocal tracks, or sequencers are used . . . ever!     Brass Attack is proud to have performed for two US Presidents (George H.W. Bush and William J. Clinton) as well as for many Fortune 500 Corporations, weddings, parties, concerts, and clubs.

In our 35th year, Brass Attack is a nine-piece band featuring four horns, a rhythm section, and five lead vocalists - one female and four male - performing classic hits from the 1930's up to today!  We play the hits of artists as diverse as:
Beyonce Knowles, Frank Sinatra, Bruno Mars, Earth Wind and Fire, Michael Buble,  Tower Of Power, Alicia Keys, Chicago, Justin Timberlake,  Glenn Miller, James Brown, Van Morrison, The Temptations, Sting, The Four Tops, Tom Petty, Santana, Blood Sweat and Tears, and Aretha Franklin, among many others in our wide-ranging, crowd-pleasing repertoire.

Our unique instrumentation, custom musical arrangements, and high degree of musicianship lend to the band's versatility and professionalism.   Over the years, members of the band have performed with prominent national acts such as The Tonight Show Band, Tavares, Ray Charles, Tom Jones, The Four Tops, The Temptations, NRBQ, Dizzy Gillespie, Gary Burton, Wayne Newton, and Aretha Franklin to name just a few. The band has shared the stage with Earth Wind and Fire, Aretha Franklin, Gladys Knight, Kenny Rogers, Michael Bolton, Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes,  Katharine McPhee, Kristin Chenoweth, and NRBQ.  Brass Attack has been a featured guest on WOTB 100.3 FM in Newport, RI and has won both the Providence Phoenix Music Poll and The MOTIF Magazine Readers Poll!
