Reviews and Press


"I have nothing but amazing things to say about the band.  They really made the event spectacular.  I appreciate how well they played and the enthusiasm they brought to their performance.  We will be deciding on our date for next year's Cheesetoberfest in the next couple of weeks and would be more than thrilled to have you all back."

- L. Bigelow, Marketing Coordinator, Fordham & Dominion Brewing Co.

"It was a pleasure to have The Philadelphia German Brass Band represented in the 2nd Collegeville-Trappe Memorial Day Parade. You are an adaptable group. Not often do we find professional musicians so agreeable. In addition to the parade, your playing at the Dedication Observance was, as always, a wonderful addition."
