    Ceremony/Cocktail Hour Must!

    Brian is an incredibly talented individual! His music selection is vast and we had so much fun selecting the songs for our ceremony and cocktail hour. Brian is wonderful to work with and extremely professional. We had multiple guests specifically comment on how much they enjoyed his music! Highly recommend!

    Brian was great!

    Brian was professional, responsive, and very adaptable to our situation. For our wedding we had a small ceremony by a lake in Maine, and there were limited power outlets. Brian came prepared with a battery system and his performance turned out fantastic. We would highly recommend Brian to anyone looking for his services.

    Very Talented and Professional

    Brian did such a great job performing at our ceremony and cocktail hour. His song list has plenty of variety to meet everyone's tastes, and he was always prompt in replying to messages or adjusting our contract. He learned a new song for our 1st dance which made it even more personal and special. When our wedding plans were scrapped for a smaller family wedding at a different location, Brian was easy to work with and easily adapted to our new plans. He arrived well dressed and set up on time, communicated directly with our other vendors, and quickly moved from our ceremony location to our cocktail hour. He even stayed longer than we had planned when our photos ran a little long. All in all, Brian was a great choice for us and we would absolutely work with him again.

  • Yellow Dog Production Wedding Videographers

    We have shot several weddings that Brian has performed the ceremony music. His professionalism and timing is of the highest quality that we have included the soundtrack in the final movie production. His music is a wonderful compliment to the ceremony. Brian always communicates with us so that we could anticipate the music program and the timely changes. He is truly a professional musician.
