Occasional Brass was wonderful
Hired them for a retirement party for our CEO, and they elevated the party and added to the ambiance. We had a piano, bass and sax. I had several people ask where I found the band, and many others said they were playing the perfect set of songs. They were set up early and broke down very quietly. I want to plan another party, just so I can hire them again.Sent on 01/23/2020

So Easy to Work With!
Bryan was incredibly easy to work with. I knew I could count on him every step of the way. The music at our wedding was beautiful, and they even did a great job of accommodating a request. It was a wonderful experience, and I would recommend them to anyone!Sent on 10/07/2019

Easy To Reserve
They are very professional and responsive when it comes to reserving and booking. We’re looking forward to having a string trio at our wedding and know exactly who will be there.Sent on 11/09/2019
