NYC's premier brass party band Shag Horns huff, puff, and blow the house down! Serving up hot throwbacks from the 70's, 80's, 90's, and 00's, we guarantee you'll sing and dance until the cows come home. Since 2017 we've been putting on legendary performances at weddings, corporate events, beer gardens, parties and parades throughout the New York area and beyond. We easily adapt to any musical situation and pride ourselves in igniting a raucous crowd and cutting a rug (that's slang for dancing). Members of our all-star line up have performed with Ricky Martin, Andy Grammer, Jon Batiste, Umphrey's McGee, O.A.R., St. Lucia, and Allen Stone, just to name a few. No matter the occasion, come shake it with the Shag Horns!
