Our History

The Patriot Brass Ensemble is the first and only professional and national organization dedicated to serving Veterans and Military Families. In 2005 the group first performed in Ridgefield, NJ, after local resident and founder Steven Behnke was unhappy with the music at the town's Memorial Day Ceremony.
