CelebrationReviewed on August 12, 2023From San Francisco, CA

They were great , on time friendly and put on a great show and had fun doing it. Our party was a Life celebration for our dear friend whom was Cajun through and through.....they delivered.

St. Gabriel's Celestial Brass Band:

Thanks Marc: We had a great time with y'all to honor your great friend, was a pleasure to add some fun music to the event to remember and honor her. Hopefully she is still dancing inside them Pearly Gates. Thank you for choosing Saint Gabriels Celestial Brass Band for the occasion.

CelebrationReviewed on September 18, 2021From San Francisco, CA

Tom and the guys were great! Anyone looking for the real-thing, this is the group to pick. It was super important that their part of the night went well, as this was a memorial for my wife, and one of her requests was that she would like there to be a band who would do a second line. And the St Gabriel's Celestial Brass Band did not disappoint. They played and entertained the crowd, then took everyone at the event around the block. It was so joyous for me. People were coming out of their houses to clap and shout out. I am sure my wife would have loved it! Thank you, guys!

St. Gabriel's Celestial Brass Band:

Thank you Glen for inviting us to a part of Her Life Celebration, we are honored to have been a part of it, and the participation of all the attendees in the Second Line around the Blick was wonderful, and certainly showed all the love they had for your wife. The sad part about playing these kind of events is often that we never had the pleasure to know the person who has departed. From all I heard, your wife was a remarkable woman. May you all be comforted by your memories of her. Tom

Private PartyReviewed on March 2, 2019From Santa Rosa, CA

The real deal! I would use these guys again. I have never seen an audience so charged.

St. Gabriel's Celestial Brass Band:

Thanks so much Jeff for entrusting your Mardi Gras Party to St Gabriels Brass Band and for your gracious hospitality to the band as well. We had as much fun playing for that group as they did and look forward to the next opportunity to play there. Tom Wiggins and da boys in da band
