WeddingReviewed on April 15, 2013From Elkhart Lake, WI

Bret and George were outstanding for my wedding on 4/13/13!! They arrived ahead of time to set up, get organized, make final arrangements, and practice. The music for the ceremony and pre-dinner cocktail event was beautiful, and I received so many compliments on Bret and George. I visited with them shortly before the end of our cocktail event, and Bret wanted to make sure I heard one of my favorite songs that I requested to be played before the ceremony....which I hadn't because I was tucked away from the crowd before the they played it again for me, which was very sweet. I appreciated his attention to detail! Thank you guys & glad we chose you!!

Bret was great to work with and made our 5 year anniversary so memorable. He went above and beyond learning our wedding song (on short notice) and playing and singing for us - all while sounding great. We'll have a lifelong memory of this milestone with the help of Bret making it extra special. He was extremely responsive, professional and would definitely recommend him to anyone!

Bret did an amazing job both playing and singing. Genuinely nice guy and very accommodating. He went above and beyond by even learning some songs that we like in advance. He made our day even more special. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on June 2, 2012From Hartland, WI

We had Bret play our wedding ceremony & cocktail hour on May 12, 2012 & we couldn't have asked for anything more! We were able to meet with him before the wedding to go over which songs we wanted at the ceremony & he was open to songs we wanted to use as well as suggestions for songs that would work well. Our cocktail hour was so much fun & we had so many comments from guests about how talented he was & what a great time they had even before the wedding started! We will definitely recommend Bret to anyone we know getting married in the future...thank you so much for a great day!

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on October 18, 2012From Burlington, WI

I can't say enough wonderful things about Bret. He played at our wedding ceremony and the refreshment hour after. We were so excited the first time we heard him play and sing, his unique style was exactly what we were looking for. He is an extremely talented musician and one of the best choices we made. He arrived early, brought all his own equipment and even brought another musician, George,to join him. They were fantastic and played everything we wanted and more. I received so many compliments and great feedback from everyone who attended. The day wouldn't have been the same without them setting the tone. I would highly recommend Bret to anyone, bride or otherwise.

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on September 11, 2012From Mayville, WI

This guy is the bomb! Bret was so easy to work with, so accommodating, so pleasant and, above all, SO TALENTED! He played for our wedding (pre-ceremony, ceremony, dinner) and helped to make the event so much more memorable. His authentic sound added a heightened level of authenticity and his willingness to please ensured everything met - even exceeded - our expectations. Not only did we enjoy his music ability and talent, but wedding guests also commented about how great he sounded. He was the absolute perfect addition to our memorable day and we would highly recommend him to anybody.

I can't thank Bret and his crew he brought along enough! Everyone at the reception and ceremony commented on how great he was. Working with Bret from the very beginning was the best experience. He is extremely nice and down to earth which makes working with him great during such a stressful time of planning a wedding!

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on September 18, 2012From Lake Geneva, WI

Bret is not only an amazing magician, but an amazing person. He learned new songs for our wedding that created a beautiful ceremony that left many in tears. He was polite to all of our guests and always kept you updated with his progress for the wedding. He even had another wedding teh day of ours, but learned songs and made it work to make our day that much more special. I just wish I had more time to talk with him, but I would recommend him to anyone. His voice is outstanding and you can tell he does this because he wants to, it's not just another job. Thank you Bret for making our day so memorable!

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on July 29, 2013From New Berlin, WI

My husband and I were very happy with Bret and George. They arrived ahead of time to set up and to coordinate with the sound person. They were dressed very nice and sounded great. I hired them to perform one song and they stayed after the ceremony playing several songs while the guests were leaving the church. I felt that this was over and above and very much appreciated. I would highly recommend them.

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on November 12, 2013From Chicago, IL

What a wonderful night! Bret and George played for us as a surprise performance for the bridal couple – it couldn’t have gone better. The wedding schedule was not finalized until the day of the wedding; they went along with it and were extremely flexible with their time and schedule. I threw a curveball to Bret requesting if he knew the first dance song, a week before the wedding – they did and played it well! The bridal couple and guests loved the music and it added such an easygoing and fun tone to the evening. Thank you for your flexibility on the scheduling, email responsiveness and putting together such a fun range of songs for the night!

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on October 15, 2013From Fort Atkinson, WI

Overall this was a great experience. Bret was very accommodating. We had rain during the reception, and had to move our picture taking to inside the house. Bret and George played acoustic guitar in the kitchen, it was a blast! They are talented gentleman! Olivia, the new addition, seemed uncomfortable and out of place. I don't recall her singing, even when asked to, so I'm not quite sure why she was brought along. I would recommend Bret to anyone, without hesitation!
