They made our wedding day super classy and elegant. I loved walking in the garden, down the aisle while they played. Ladies and gents, choose them for your special day!

We had a great experience with BSQ. They were incredibly accommodating and flexible as we even tossed a special request to them less than two weeks before our wedding and they nailed it. Beautiful music, great communication, broad song list and easy coordination. I would highly recommend BSQ.
