Festive Brass of Myrtle Beach

Our history

The Festive Brass is celebrating its 19th season as one of the unique performing groups on the Grand Strand.  The Festive Brass began as just eight pieces in 1998 and has grown to a 20- plus piece British style brass band and the Festive Brass Quintet.  The band is composed of professional musicians, dedicated amateurs, and gifted high school and college students.  The Festive Brass continues to be an integral part of our community, performing annually at the Memorial Day, Veteran's Day and Honor Flight celebrations in Myrtle Beach and Concerts in the Park at the Pelican Stadium and Valor Park.


The Festive Brass has two annual concerts: The CanAm Spring Concert and the Christmas Concert.  Besides the regular concerts we also perform for several other special events during the year.
