Established in 1998, the mission of the Festive Brass is to bring the local community together with volunteer musicians to support the City of Myrtle Beach and the Grand Strand at all ceremonial events that celebrate our veterans past and present. We are rooted in our nation’s musical history by playing traditional marches, patriotic music, military service songs, big band, and more. In addition to playing for ceremonial events, we perform themed seasonal concerts and traditional Christmas concerts throughout the region. [music concerts with free public admission]
