Excerpt of the Jack Brass Band playing "Do Lord"
The Jack Brass Band understands that the passing of a loved one is difficult.
The service (and music) needs to be carefully planned to reflect and honor the deceased.
We have performed for many memorial services and learned about the history and tradition of a "jazz funeral" through our trips to New Orleans, and having members of the band participate and play in funerals there, alongside the masters of our craft.
Typical tune selections include:
Just a Closer Walk With Thee
The Old Rugged Cross
When the Saints Go Marching In
I'll Fly Away
What a Wonderful World
"We received numerous compliments after the service. I so much appreciate your pulling the band together on such short notice. I’m sure Robin was smiling down as well." - Wendy
"With short notice on an unexpectedly steaming hot day in June, leading a much larger than anticipated crowd of mourners down Summit Avenue and into the University Club, Jack Brass Band performed with pitch-perfect tone, skill, step, celebration, and grace." - The Culligan Family
We've worked with area churches to play music throughout worship services, as well as performing special concerts, and festivals.
We'll wake up your earliest church service parisioners, and get everyone clapping and singing along to great gospel music.
In addition to the tunes listed above, we are often asked to play songs like:
Jesus on the Mainline
Down by the Riverside
Over in the Gloryland
Just a Little While to Stay Here
