Riverside Brass Quintet offer an exciting Christmas Entertainment Package each November-December!
Every year, we come up with new up-tempo arrangements of pop-classics from Slade to Bing Crosby, as well as traditional carols. This has become such a major feature of our year that we even released a CD of these tunes in our debut album, Riverside’s Yuletide.
The idea is simple – we play a selection of our tunes to get the festive mood in full swing! As an optional extra we can bring song-sheets for party-goers to belt out their favourites and even provide a professional singer to lead the chorus!
This has worked wonderfully in the past and we choose our music in accordance with the situation and type of venue, from churches to Christmas Markets and even pubs/bars.
N.B. you will find many of these tracks (free to listen to) in our Shop.
