Left Coast Music's ensembles provide live entertainment and accompaniment for wedding ceremonies and receptions. We absolutely love music, we enjoy performing with each other, and we formed this group to offer something new to the community here in San Diego.
We are hired by couples who are looking to break the traditional perceptions of stuffy classical music. We offer a large library spanning over six hundred years of masterful music, including favorite themes from Hollywood movies, jazz and upbeat swing, custom arrangements of pop music, traditional wedding cadences, and ballroom dances. Our ensembles include a wind quintet & trio, string quartet & trio, solo musicians, and emcee, including wireless audio.
Hi! This is Dan, the Founder and Artistic Director of the Left Coast Quintet. I've been a musician for as long as I can remember, playing piano and guitar as a small kid, then transitioning to bassoon, sax, and many other wind instruments through school. I've had the opportunity to perform all over the US, as well as in England, Israel, Canada, and Mexico, and absolutely love bringing music to people.
All of our ensembles have a huge library of music. Imagine walking down the isle to Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, or Harry Potter, or your guests enjoying clever arrangements of the Beatles, Duke Ellington, or Christina Perri. These options, and many more, are available from our groups.
Samples of our music, bios of our players, and more is available on our website at www.weddingmusicsandiego.com. I will be there through the whole process, so you know you're not dealing with different people. I'm recently married myself and know the stress and planning involved in making weddings work, and I strive to make sure that the process of hiring live music is hassle free so you can work on other items on your check list. I really look forward to talking with you about how we can turn a moment in time into an everlasting memory through music.

Left Coast Quintet
We had the opportunity to work with Dan, and had the best experience. He and the group were so flexible in giving us what we wanted, while still being honest, providing suggestions that helped my husband and I make good decisions. Even when we didn’t go with what he suggested, the music we chose was so well performed, and truly made our ceremony so incredibly special. I can’t imagine having had anyone else perform or provide music; they are the best!Sent on 05/14/2019

Perfect ambiance for a perfect day
We hired the string duet for our garden wedding ceremony, and they were great! We received lots of compliments from our family on the ambience they brought to the event. Working with Dan was also a pleasure. He responded in a timely fashion to all my inquiries. They also have a wide repertoire of music to choose from, so we were able to customize our pre-ceremony, processional, and recessional music to our tastes. They have a lot of popular music, soundtrack, and other non-wedding specific arrangements, so I'd definitely recommend them for any event!Sent on 02/11/2019

We had Left Coast Quintet play our ceremony music at Cuvier Park this past weekend and they did a phenomenal job! My husband is extremely picky when it comes to music and he had to have a band that had a French Horn. We were so happy when we found Left Coast Quintet. Dan was extremely responsive throughout the entire planning process. He seemed to always be one step ahead asking us for information and being patient when it took us a while to respond. We got so many compliments on the ceremony music and everyone was extremely impressed! Thank you Dan and the rest of the group for the beautiful ceremony music! We are so glad you were part of our big day!Sent on 10/02/2017

I loved working with the Left Coast Quintet on my last wedding. Beautiful music, professional and enthusiastic attitude. I will be recommending them to all our couples for future weddings and for other client's events. I look forward to working with them again!
