About Brookwood Split & The 17th Street Horns
Brookwood Split & The 17th Street Horns, led by Music Director Robert Alan Olson of RAO Jazz, plays R&B classics from the last 70 years. Brookwood Split (or “BS” to our fans) is a tight, high energy horn band that rocks a serious, live action dance party for your Wedding, Corporate Event, Jazz Festival or private party — any way you want it! You want your guests to be dancing all night long – and that’s where we come in!
We keep your guests dancing all night long and also treat them to the classics from Chicago, Blood Sweat & Tears, Steely Dan, Earth Wind & Fire, Motown, The Commodores, Bruno Mars, Aretha Franklin, Smoky Robinson and Wilson Pickett! And…Tower of Power, John Mellencamp, Etta James and Van Morrison! Check out our Partial Song List below — but keep in mind it’s just a sampling! Let us know what you want to hear, and we will play it!
A typical event includes live music over a 4-hour period, with breaks arranged around your event schedule. During breaks, we are happy to play background music of your choice over our PA. You can also use our PA to make your own announcements or request that we provide Emcee duties for you.
Finally, in addition to great music, we also take pride in the personal attention we give you and your event. We have fun making it all about you and being easy to work with. We want to know your vision and your priorities – and how we can help make it happen.
RAO Jazz is one of the most reputable band organizations in Atlanta and your one-stop shop for live music!
Our simple process includes an easy-to-read Contract (no double-speak), an Event Details Form and a super friendly Cancellation and Refund Policy – because we know life gets complicated.
