  • From the day we first contacted Brandt, he was extremely professional and a delight to work with. He was flexible with our plans throughout the process and the day of our wedding. He sent us options of cover songs we asked for, playlists suggestions and made us feel extremely assured of everything. Our guests were very impressed with him and he was the perfect acoustic guitarist for our special day!

  • Brandt is AMAZING! From day one we knew we had found a gem and we were not going to be disappointed. He was so professional and caring. He truly made us feel that our wedding was just as much his experience as it was ours. From his constant contact and communication to his lovely music and inspiration. Then the BIG day came and so did he! He made the ceremony magical and romantic! Just what we wanted. Then he warmed the hearts of our guests during the cocktail hour! Brandt! You are truly a beautiful soul and we we’re blessed to have you! Thank you again and again! I can’t wait until our next event. Until then!

  • From the first time I requested a quote until the day after my wedding Brandt was incredibly responsive with all of his communication, which for me was greatly appreciated. He spends as much time as you need to talk you through the vision he has for your event, and also takes your ideas and thoughts and mixes them with his own to provide a beautiful musical experience. Brandt played guitar and also brought a percussionist for our wedding cocktail hour and then also played music for our procession down the aisle. Everything he did was truly amazing and I could see how much care he took in his work and providing the best experience he possibly could. i would recommend Brandt to anyone who is wanting a talented musician for an event.

  • Brandt Jacobus is one of a kind! His music truly engaged the audience and flowed so seamlessly with our ceremony. Throughout the evening, our wedding guests constantly raved about how beautifully Brandt played guitar. Not only is he talented, but Brandt is also one of the sweetest humans you could possibly work with! We really enjoyed getting to know Brandt better throughout the wedding planning process. He made our wedding so unique and special, and it really felt like the music he played was meant for us. Thank you so much Brandt for all that you have done for us! We love you! xoxo Love, Kelly & David

  • Brandt did a phenomenal job at our wedding on September 1st at Terranea! Guests told us that they were so impressed with his playing. He did all of the music for the ceremony and cocktail hour, and for a bit of dinner and it was beautiful and perfect with the setting. His music really helped make everything feel that much more special. Throughout the planning process, he was professional and helpful. We absolutely loved working with him. He’s incredibly talented, and we feel very lucky that he was there on our big day!

  • Brandt and his team were so wonderful to work with from the very first call. He helped guide me and also took my ideas with tons of patience and brought them to life (we requested Ultra Light Beam by Kanye West on the guitar + violin for our processional and they crushed it!). I'm sad I missed his performance during cocktail hour because we were off taking pictures but all our our guests raved about them. Thank you thank you for being such a delight to work with - you are a true talent that added such a special touch to our wedding. Can't wait to work with you again in the future!

  • Brandt was such a pleasure to work with! He truly is the BEST! We heard of him playing for weddings, and we wanted to book him right away, especially after seeing his website and busy schedule! My husband and I couldn’t be happier. Brandt played for our wedding ceremony, as guests were entering, as well as during the ceremony, and after. He was more than accommodating, and was super friendly to work with. We knew we wanted the acoustic guitar, but weren’t sure about song choice. Brandt made the perfect suggestions and was super communicative during the process. We just adore him and our guests really enjoyed him too! He really made our special day magical and was totally worth it. We highly recommend Brandt!! Book in advance because this guy is popular!!!

  • From the first phone call to the follow up after the wedding, Brandt was top notch. He played amazing music for our 275 guests and everyone loved him. They talked about some songs he played for weeks after the wedding. He really added a great live music feature to our cocktail hour and people very much enjoyed that while enjoying their cocktails. The guy shreds on the guitar and his percussionist also played the large bongos well! Would highly recommend using Brandt for your event!

  • Brandt makes a “special “ occasion “magical”! If every vendor could be as professional and kind as Brandt, the world would certainly be a better place. It was my pleasure and honor to work with Brandt. You would be amiss not to have him!

  • One of the best decisions we made for our wedding was hiring Brandt as our ceremony and cocktail hour musician. He brought energy, passion and talent to our wedding. I have two favorite memories from working with him. The first was when we first connected. I was sitting on a bench on Lafayette Street in New York while face-timing Brandt, and he was playing different versions of my wedding ceremony song that he learned specifically for me. The second was when I walked out to my wedding cocktail hour and looked over to see Brandt and his percussionist just having the time of their lives, playing with contagious energy for our wedding guests. I'm truly grateful for the opportunity to have worked with him and experienced his music on such a special day in my life.

  • Brandt's talent with music is extraordinary. He worked with us to craft exactly what we wanted on our wedding day and blended it to fit our scene, theme and personalities. He played Can't Help Falling In Love by Elvis, and it was so beautiful, emotional, romantic even with just one guitar. He even learned a new song for us, Sugar by Maroon 5, which turned out soo pretty, up beat, and exactly what I was going for as we closed out the ceremony. He gave us beautiful romantic music from ceremony to the cocktail hour and to the end of the last dance. Delivered his promises perfectly, and even managed our playlist at reception. I cannot say enough good things! Thank you Brandt!

  • Brandt was absolutely amazing, and truly went above and beyond to make our day special. He was professional and so easy to work with during our planning conversations. He took time to get to know us as a couple, listened to our wants and expectations, and then exceeded them! We had a guitar and strings duo play during our pre-ceremony, ceremony, and cocktail hour. Our guests kept commenting on how beautiful the music was! He also reached out following the wedding to personally thank us and share how kind our families and guests had been to him on the big day. Brandt will help make your wedding or event special with his amazing talent!

  • Our wedding venue had a rustic, vintage feel and so hiring a Spanish guitarist for the ceremony and cocktail hour was a perfect touch. Brandt is personable and has a willingness to collaborate on providing the best music for our event. I did suggest some songs we would like when our guests arrive at our venue and he felt he knew the tone needed for a wedding so I conceded to his guidance. His guitar playing was fitting for the outdoor ceremony and then followed by an outdoor cocktail hour. If anything, I would have wanted maybe more of a presence from his music to exhibit his talents instead of more of a background sound. But he was appropriate for allowing guests to converse by not overpowering the event. Brandt was on time and set up and was ready which we appreciated. Brandt definitely played a role in creating a beautiful wedding day!
