St. Gabriel's Celestial Brass Band did an amazing job at our small corporate function. They sounded amazing, and were incredibly accommodating, willing to lead a 2nd line style march around our two floors, taking requests, dealing with our building's odd insurance requirements, etc. They are easy to work with and brought great energy to our event. Would definitely have them back!

St. Gabriel's Celestial Brass Band made our wedding the success it was. They are talented, flexible and extremely high energy. Tom, the band leader, was wonderful to work with and very responsive. We had a wedding parade from our ceremony to our reception and the band made it a hit. So many guests said it was their favorite part of the wedding and any wedding they had ever been to. If you're thinking about booking St. Gabriel's Celestial Brass Band don't hesitate- just do it! You and your guests will be blown away by their enthusiasm and talent.
