What our clients are saying

The Patriotic Brass Ensemble great to work with…professional, flexible, and sounded great during our opening keynote session.  Our audience enjoyed the upbeat and impactful kick off to the conference!

- Lisa Hinkle, the American Hospital Association

Working with The Patriot Brass Ensemble was an absolutely incredible experience. They were extremely talented, the utmost professionals, and a pleasure to work with. Steven went above and beyond what was expected and became an invaluable member of our team for this project. Unfortunately I don't have the opportunity to work with marching bands often, but the next time I do I will hire Steven and his team immediately.

Filming for Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing New York is always insane, and my team has to be ready to shoot around the clock. On last minute notice, my assistant and I had to pull together entertainment for a Season 3 promo video, and who came to our rescue? The Patriot Brass Ensemble. They showed up to Union Square very early and ready to rock. We could not have done the scene without them!

- Million Dollar Listing

It was a pleasure having you and your band perform at our gala! The Argentina National Anthem was impeccable! Thank you and every member of the band for such an amazing job!!!

- Aerolíneas Argentinas Miami

When my boss asked me to arrange for a marching band for our company’s annual kickoff meeting, I could not have anticipated the amazing performance the Patriot Brass Ensemble would provide.  Steven Behnke was great to deal with to arrange the performance as well as coordinate all the logistics in having a 20 piece marching band perform for over 1,000 people.  The band really rocked crowd and gave our meeting the jolt we were looking for.  In addition, it was our pleasure to support the mission of the Patriot Brass Ensemble in giving back to our veterans and military families. 

- Richard M. Sica, ACE Group

Members of the Patriot Brass Los Angeles played at our private screening and after party for Martin Scorsese's film THE WOLF OF WALL STREET. The band played a variety of tunes in front of Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, Rob Reiner, Jon Favreau and numerous others in the entertainment industry. They did a terrific job, wore professional uniforms and had great attitudes. This truly was a lovely group of young musicians and everyone at the event was very impressed. Many, many thanks from Paramount Pictures.

It was a pleasure working with The Patriot Brass Ensemble.  [Steven] Behnke and his team were complete professionals.  They were easy to work with and highly talented.  We threw them into a very non-traditional performance environment and they were able to improvise right along with us.  I recommend them for all of your marching band needs!

- Charlie Todd - Improv Everywhere

Matt and the band were extremely friendly and accommodating. With our event, we changed our needs around through out the hour to the event. They were so adaptable and friendly when we needed them to play earlier and two songs in a row. Everyone said how fun and awesome they were and they were such a highlight to our day. Steven was also so easy to work with and was so prompt and professional in his emails and over the phone. Overall it was a wonderful time, and we loved Patriot Bass!

- Emily V. of Apple

GREAT! They responded immediately, Put a group together in just a few hours and modified their music to fit our needs - Bravo!

- Bob Read Senior Producer / Managing Editor of Inside Edition
