Occasional Brass & Strings did a phenomenal job at my wedding. They were very accommodating and absolutely killed it on the day. For the ceremony, they played beautifully(including creating an arrangement of Ray Charles's Hallelujah I Love Her So) and for Cocktail Hour they converted into a killer Latin Jazz combo.

The music was beautiful and added a touch of class to my son's wedding. They were helpful with music selection and very accommodating when I sprung a time change on them. I would definitely use them again!

Bryan was incredibly easy to work with and made the process totally smooth for us. In the sea of details we were trying to pin down throughout the wedding prep process, this was one of the easiest to navigate. Zoia and Junko were a perfect addition to our ceremony and did a beautiful job with our special request!

Occasional Brass made planning my ceremony music so easy! They performed very well and followed the set list perfectly. I did not have to worry about a thing. They set-up early and without any issues. All of my correspondents with Bryan were professional and consise. I would absolutely recommend them to my friends and family.

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on July 13, 2019From Gloucester, MA

Occasional brass and strings were excellent! They had good communication, were reasonably priced, and had a big catalog of music to choose from. On our wedding day they arrived early and set up with no need for input from us. They played beautifully and were a great addition to our ceremony. Definitely recommend!

They pulled together a special trio for the ceremony for our wedding (keyboard, cello and violin) and were just amazing i had several people say how much they loved the music. They also out together special arrangements of some unique songs for us. They were flawless and Bryan, took care of arranging wvwry detail. Can't say enough good things! Would highly recommend them!

We were extremely happy with the Occassional Brass and Strings group. The music absolutley made our ceremony come together, and the ending song of "All you Need is Love" was a hit! Thank you again for your talents and making the booking process simple! - Jessica & Colter

We had a string trio at our wedding on this past Saturday and they we absolutely wonderful! Bryan was so easy to communicate with. The performers were professionally dressed and polite and we enjoyed listening to them. We would definitely recommend Occaisional Brass and Strings!

Great folks to work with! Some issues cropped up but the post-performance reviews I heard were all quite positive! Thanks, OB&S!

WeddingReviewed on December 31, 2018From Dedham, MA

We had a string quartet play the cocktail hour during our New Year's Eve wedding, and they were absolutely top-notch! Not only were the musicians professional and a pleasure to have in the space, but they even learned a special song for our event at our request ("Young Americans" by David Bowie) - something I did not necessarily expect given that their catalog already boasts many hundreds of songs! I highly recommend Occasional Brass & Strings and would definitely engage them for another event someday! A+

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on December 8, 2018From Groton, MA

Bryan and the other members of the quartet made my daughter's small family-only wedding day so special. They set up near the ceremony and then after, moved to the main floor to be closer to the reception, which was very nice. They played the entire set list I chose for the event and then some! Their sound was excellent and volume appropriate for the venue. I was worried the trumpet might overpower the stings but Bryan played beautifully and in hindsight can't imagine now how it would have sounded without it! The kids loved the Christmas tunes and the adults the classical and contemporary tunes. The library of music choice is amazing. Well done and THANK YOU!

WeddingReviewed on September 1, 2018From Portsmouth, RI

From the beginning of the booking process, to the day of the wedding, everything was so seamless and wonderful! Bryan was great to work with and everyone we had for the trio was extremely talented. We could not have chosen a better trio to have for our ceremony (biggest part of a wedding!) and cocktail hour!

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on September 8, 2018From Lanesboro, MA

I tried to take a few moments away from everything to enjoy our wedding day and the times I was able to enjoy the OB&S they were simply amazing. If that weren’t enough, 4 people throughout the night and next day commented on how great they sounded and how it really added to our ceremony & cocktail hour. I don’t really know what else to say besides I will be using them for future celebrations without a second thought.
