Colorado Brass Quintet

The Colorado Brass Quintet, formerly Peak Brass, performs social events where the mood is a real "blast". We have a vast repertoire of music from Bach to Imagine Dragons. We have been around for several decades playing weddings, graduations, debutante balls, wine tastings, sports events, memorials, live concerts, etc. In our case the "etc." is only limited to the imagination of our clients.
