Brian is a proffesional of the utmost caliber, and a gentleman as well. I would recommend him most highly for any event, but his sensitivity to the needs of a wedding seems to be a special talent he posseses. His talents lent an unforgettable element to our wedding, and elevated the event to a much more sophisticated level than it would of otherwise been the case. Thank you sir, for being a part of a day that will be remembered in our two families!

As a performer for the Hospitality Dept. at UNH's Gourmet Dinners, Brian was a pleasure to work with. He was professional in all aspects of his work. This was a themed dinner, so he kindly provided music selections that went along with the theme. His two performances were enjoyed by all who attended the dinners. I would definately recommend him for your event.

Brian met with the wedding couple prior to the wedding to select music. They only had the highest of praise for him. At the wedding, he accommodated our request to play on the beach and by the reception area. He is a very talented musician. Our guests loved his music. We would highly recommend him.

Brian Cullen was an excellent choice for our wedding. He played during both the ceremony and reception cocktail hour/dinner and our guests were complementing us on our choice of music. His style was a perfect compliment to our vision for our wedding, summer, relaxed yet somewhat traditional, airy, and fun. We had some timing issues with the reception due to the caterer but Brian took it all in stride, playing some amazing music during dinner. I would recommend Brian Cullen to anyone looking for music at their event. His professionalism and courtesy are only surpassed by his talent.

Brian Cullen was great. He was more than accomodating not only by email but also ver the phone. He was pleasant and encouraging in musical choices and when there were logistical errors made by others in the party during the ceremony he was quick to be flexible and accomodating to smooth over those rough transitions and make the ceremony a wonderful experience. His music fit the setting perfectly and I would recommend him to anyone.

Brian was wonderful! He was very easy to work with, anticipated any need that we might have had, and his music was beautiful. Just right for our wedding ceremony and cocktail reception on Sebago Lake. I recommend him without reservation.

He was great to work with and even had to drive an hour on snowy, icy roads to get to the party. The physicians complemented him and some asked for his card. He was friendly, yet very serious about keeping his music going for four hours straight. We stopped him once while the CEO addressed the group, but otherwise he played continually. He brought amplifiers and I was very happy with the volume, it was perfect for the venue and event.
