Review by Brooke M.

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on November 6, 2023From Walpole, MA

They absolutely were the talk of my event. I had the Occassional Brass team do our ceremony and cocktail hour. What was amazing is their list of INCREDIBLE song choices anything from classic to top 40. They also were able to learn a song for free which was amazing. They made our ceremony BEAUTIFUL and our cocktail hourly lively and unique. I couldnt reccommend them more!!

WeddingReviewed on October 28, 2023From Rehoboth, MA

Bryan was awesome to work with and coordinate all of the songs we wanted to have played for our wedding. The musicians that came were amazing and made our ceremony and cocktail hour so special.

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on September 10, 2023From Danvers, MA

They were excellent performers and very easy to work with. Planning songs with them was seamless and they provided input on songs when we had questions. Bryan is extremely responsive and informative. Bethany, Susan, and Barbara performed at our wedding and we're incredible. We still hear from guests how lovely the music was and how great the musicians were. Would definitely recommend for a wedding or other event!
