Number Eleven

Number ElevenIt’s April 13, but can you believe it’s already 2008? Eleven years ago today, the final Hartford Whalers game was played at the Hartford Civic Center. Hockey as we loved it ended, but Brass Bonanza and the great memories have lived on. The amazing thing is how the cult following behind Brass Bonanza has grown over the past few years. We want thank all of you who visit the site for your Whalers fix and hope you’ll keep coming back for many years to come. A special thank you goes out to those who have contributed content over the years – it’s folks like you who keep the site unique and fresh and for that we thank you!

During the off season, we’ll be cleaning out our archives and posting a number of pictures and sounds that people have sent us over the years (yes, we’re that far behind in getting things up on the site). We plan to finish the photo gallery and re-open the Whalers Team Store where unique Whalers items will be offered for sale. Stay tuned!


The dust is still settling, but welcome to the new Brass Bonanza .com!

We are the original and the only web site dedicated to the famed theme of the Hartford Whalers, Brass Bonanza. This site was started back in 1995 as a means for satisfying the numerous requests I was receiving for copies of Brass Bonanza.

Over the years this site has evolved from providing a download of Brass Bonanza to today’s offering of numerous audio and video clips from Whalers past, as well as pictures and other great finds. Most of the content on this site is exclusive to Brass and has largely been donated to us by numerous Whalers personalities and fans. We thank you for helping to keep the spirit alive and ask that you send users here rather than re-posting content on another site.

Currently, funding and hosting services for this web site are provided by Crabersen Internet Solutions. We ask that you please visit their site to register/transfer a domain name, sign up for web hosting, or any other web needs you may have.
