The Band

A Little History Of The Brass Express

Mark Janson of Frankenmuth, MI assembled the Brass Express over 25 years ago. They have preformed throughout the country and in Canada at many functions featuring their unique style of Polka Music. In 2002, Mark made a decision to concentrate soley on being a Polka Music Promoter. He and his staff host many dances throughout the year and are responsible for The Annual Music-Fest every August in Frankenmuth MI which features many of the Music Industry’s top entertainers and orchestras. In order to make these events the absolute best for music fans, Mark handed the leadership of the band over to longtime band member and friend, Darrell Weltin. Since then, Darrell has put together “The New Brass Express”, which features a group of versatile musicians who love to preform all types of music for any occasion. From Polish Style Polkas, Waltzes, and Obereks, to Big Band, Contemporary, Country and Rock and Roll, The New Brass Express plays a wide variety of music that is guaranteed to be enjoyed by all who see them. With their own recording studio located in Ubly,MI featuring State of The Art digital equipment, many future releases are now being recorded and planned.

If you are planning a Wedding, Dance, Festival or love to follow great music, contact us or check out our schedule of preformances. We would love to see you at one of our future appearances.
