Bulletproof Brass Band

This eleven-piece dance band will excite all ages with the familiar sounds of popular R&B and Funk hits from the 60’s through the 90’s. Their unique band consists of an aggressive four-piece brass section and a full auxiliary percussionist. With the experience of lead singers Rodney Johnson and Stephanie Nadolny, your party is sure to be a smash hit. But don’t be surprised when a saxophone solo performed only a few feet away. Our horns and singers use cordless microphones which allows us to perform from anywhere at the party . . . and we do!

# Tunes from Earth, Wind and Fire, Chicago, Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett, Frank Sinatra, Harry Connick Junior and Stevie Wonder are all part of the band’s extensive repertoire.
# You can see and hear this Dallas/Ft. Worth area band perform at clubs such as Memphis and Sipango.
