Professional and effortless
All of my guests were so impressed with Occasional Brass and having the live music during my ceremony was a dream of mine. They executed the day perfectly and set-up nice and early so I didn't have to worry about a thing. Thank you!Sent on 09/08/2019

The string trio that Bryan provided for my sister's wedding ceremony were exceptional. They added that special touch that my sister and her fiance were looking for, and the guests had nothing but compliments for them. They took the time to learn a special song my sister wanted to walk down the aisle to as well which was incredibly generous of them.Sent on 09/30/2015

Great music, massive catalog
Occasional Brass & Strings provided a string trio for our wedding ceremony, and my only regret is that I wasn’t in the audience to get to hear all the songs they played. They were super talented and brought the ceremony to life in a way that recorded music never could have. The hardest part of working with them was choosing the songs, as there were almost 1000 songs to choose from. We chose a mix of traditional songs, old hits, and modern bands that we and our friends listen to.Sent on 07/30/2019
