  • If it were possible to give Brant a 6 out of 5 I certainly would. His music is absolutely sublime and was the perfect soundtrack to our ceremony and cocktail hour. We were not surprised when several of our guests were so impressed they asked for his contact details. Brandt was prompt and responsive and reacted perfectly to unexpected situations like a guest passing out from heat stroke next to him, and the wedding coordinator forgetting to start the ceremony. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Brandt Jacobus to anyone. He's a guitar hero and a total gem!

  • Brandt performed at my wedding on August 1, 2015 at Bella Collina in San Clemente, CA. His suggestions for the music to be played for the guest arrival, wedding party and bride were all amazing and selected by him since my fiancee (now husband) and I couldn't make a decision. My guest were surprised and amazed when they heard a Spanish guitar playing for my ceremony and cocktail hour instead of the traditional wedding music, and I have to say that was the best decision ever made since I still have friends and family that continue to talk about "the guitarist". I have recommended him to many others and will continue to do so. Thank you again Brandt for the beautiful performance.

  • Perfection is the only word that would describe Brandt! My husband and I were beyond impressed with the entertainment he provided for our wedding during the cocktail hour and the interaction he had with us leading up to the day. We knew he would be amazing based on various website reviews, but he far exceeded our expectations. All of our guests loved his music and performance. He was so easy to work with and I really appreciated his incredible professionalism and dedication to our event. Brandt, thank you so very much for helping make our wedding day the happiest day of our lives. You are truly amazing!

  • Brandt was such a pleasure to work with. He is so sweet and was really easy to communicate with. He responded to every email we sent within minutes. He was also very helpful in helping us chose ceremony music and music for the cocktail hour, he was even happy to learn a few songs for us! Our guests were commenting on how beautiful the music was all evening. Thanks so much, Brandt!

  • We absolutely loved having Brandt play at our wedding this March! From the very beginning of wedding planning I knew that I wanted a guitarist for the ceremony, but I never imagined that we would be so lucky to find such an amazing guitarist. I'm picky too because I used to play in a quartet for weddings as a side job so I've been to hundreds of weddings before. Brandt was truly a pleasure to work with and we had a few phone conversations leading up to the event where we ironed out all the details. Brandt always listened carefully to what we wanted and even sent us some samples of him playing a particular song that we requested. He is also flexible in playing different styles during the ceremony and cocktail hour. On the day of the wedding, he was very professional and our guests raved about him. I can't wait to have another event where we can work together again. Hig

  • First...Brandt knows how to play. We had an outdoor wedding at Terranea Resort outside of LA. We had Brandt play before and after the ceremony as the guests were arriving and being seated. His music was the perfect volume to be audible without people having to talk over the music. After the ceremony he played for the first part of the reception and his music was great. Second, he was extremely flexible and easy to work with. The feedback from the guests was also great. "Who is that guy? He is amazing!" was the kind of statements we heard over and over. Thanks, Brandt. Kevin and Julie Ward

  • Brandt was the perfect addition to both our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. His talent speaks far beyond just his music. Brandt is a true professional through and through. As musicians ourselves we knew that we wanted the best for our wedding and we definitely got that with Brandt Jacobus. We have received countless complements on the music performed at our wedding and we cannot be grateful enough to Brandt for making our special day even more beautiful through his music. Thank you, Brandt!

  • Brandt is phenomenal. I had him play for both my ceremony and cocktail hour at my wedding this past month. We could not have been more pleased. He is an unbelievable musician and was so professional and pleasant to work with, not to mention an incredibly nice guy. Highly recommend!

  • Brandt was amazing before, during and after we hired him for our wedding. I had a lot of things to think about and worry about but he was certainly not one of them. I booked him early on and he was on top of everything from the very beginning and throughout the whole process. His playing is very beautiful but also, I cannot stress how professional he is and how much he really cares about doing his job well and doing his part to make your special day just that- special. The guests loved him, my husband (also a musician) loved him and of course I did too and will always be happy that he was a part of our wedding.

  • Professional and Entertaining Brandt helped us at an event at the Long beach Convention Center March 12, 2015. He was very professional, came early to set up, and gave a very entertaining and appropriate performance. I would recommend him wholeheartedly

  • Brandt's is a name you must know if you want personalized, heartfelt, moving and overall beautiful live music for your event. As Brandt told my fiancee and me he would, he read the energy and interest of the crowd to keep the group energized, engaged and captivated at all the right moments. Despite an unusually and unwelcome cold snap, Brandt performed for our outdoor wedding ceremony and then smoothly transitioned inside for cocktail hour. He is a delight to work with and we intend to use him again at every occasion where it would be appropriate. It was challenging to choose many of the details of our wedding but the choice of Brandt is one we would make every time. He adds a touch of magic.

  • I was looking to have a classical guitarist play at our wedding ceremony. I cried when I heard Brandt's sample music online and knew he would be perfect for us. He is very sweet and easy to work with, and he always responded quickly to any questions or emails. I loved that he played music options over the phone for me, because really who has time to meet with more people while planning a wedding?! His playing is flawless and is a beautiful representation of what it will sound like the day of. I had to change my location last minute to an outdoor venue, and he was very flexible and even provided some of the needed equipment. The day of, he showed up to my Palisades venue, played beautifully, and left with no hitches. We were so happy and would hire him again. I feel confident he could play most anything requested and would create a beautiful rendition.
