  • Brandt performed at our ceremony and he was absolutely amazing! My schedule was very tight months before the wedding with work and Brandt did a FaceTime with us so we could go over everything and pick which music he could perform and there wasn't anything that he couldn't do. Brandt met every single one of our expectations and even more. He arrived early and he was so great working with our DJ on when it was a good time for his shift to end and transition to the DJ's part of our wedding. I would absolutely refer Brandt to all of my friends and family and all of my friends's friends. His talent is a one of a kind that brings something special to your wedding or special event that money can't buy. I can't thank him enough for how absolutely amazing he was. After the wedding family couldn't stop talking about the acoustic guitarist who was playing during our ceremony. Everybody had nothing but amazing things to say about him. Thank you so much again Brandt!

  • When my fiancé and I first met Brandt, we knew immediately that Brandt was our guitarist for our wedding day. Brandt was very accommodating to our needs and knew exactly what to play for us during our ceremony and cocktail hour. He really added the extra touch of romance and intimacy that we desired for our wedding, it truly was a beautiful day. We wouldn't have imagined it any differently. After our wedding our guests continued to compliment us on how amazing our ceremony and cocktail hour music was. Brandt's guitar playing really was perfection. Not only is he a great musician, but he was a great person to work with. He was very responsive, professional, and the service was amazing. I highly recommend Brandt's services for any event. You will not be disappointed.

  • From the minute we first sat down with him to the wedding, working with Brandt was nothing but a pleasure. He is an amazing guitarist and really made our day special! We had him play our ceremony and cocktail hour and he came up with a beautiful and unique mix of music that really helped set the tone for the evening. We couldn't be more happy of choosing Brandt for our wedding - thank you for everything!

  • Having Brandt Jacobus perform at my son's wedding was a wonderful experience!! He was so kind to have us come to his house for a mini concert with my daughter-in-law, her mother, my son and myself. We were so impressed with his beautiful talent it was difficult to leave! His music touched our souls in such a way that we told him to perform the songs of his choice!! We left feeling so blessed to have met such a wonderful performer and so excited to have him play at our wedding. Our wedding day was a success and his music filled the place with such wonderful music!! I highly recommend Brandt for all your special occasions... his music touches your heart and soul!

  • Honestly, Jasmine and I can't be more appreciative for the opportunity to have Brandt play at our wedding. He was heaven sent. First off, he was so accommodating early on. He skyped with us, and even invited us to his home to do a personal audition for us. And he was so invested in making certain that we were happy with the musical selections he played, that he gave us multiple options, and made sure we were comfortable throughout the process. At the actual wedding, Brandt was the show stopper. The mood he set for the guests was out of a fairy tale. All our guests won't stop talking about "that guitar player" we had. He was tucked away in the corner, but his presence was felt!! It was like a romantic film setting at the house we got married at, and Brandt was the musical soundtrack. We also had him play at our cocktail hour, and he was AHMAZING!! We would have him work with us again in the near future, even if it's at our anniversary, or just a dinner party. He's the best, and we are ... Read more

  • Brandts Spanish guitar at my wedding ceremony at Shutters on the Beach was absolutely phenomenal. He plays so beautifully, and is also a lovely person. I am so happy and highly recommend him.

  • Brandt was absolutely perfect for us. The quality of his work is beyond critique as far as I am concerned. He was perfect. As important to me, Brandt was flexible and so easy to work with. Our wedding expanded from a courthouse event to a 50 person outdoor ceremony and sit down dinner within weeks of the event itself. We were so pre-occupied with planning everything that I didn't think I would be able to put in the time needed for selecting appropriate music. After sending Brandt the event outline, he was more than willing to do all of the planning and selection. We didn't do a thing and it turned out perfect. He is so easy to work with and his music attaches a beauty to the event that people feel. I recommend Brandt for anyone thinking of using his service.

  • Brandt was AMAZING! If you're looking for romantic beautiful raw guitar talent! Brandt met with my fiancé (at the time) and I to decide on the perfect songs to walk down the isle. He even came up with something JUST FOR US as we gave him feedback as he played his guitar in his living room. Brandt was flexible and and very professional. He replies to emails, sometimes in a matter of minutes. We love Brandt! Thank you for making our wedding ceremony so special and memorable.

  • Having Brandt play at our wedding was one of the best decisions we could have made. He without question took on the challenge of picking out music to play during cocktail hour and while the guests were waiting. He is able to play any piece that you like and is extremely flexible. Brandt took the time to play pieces over the phone to ensure that even from a distance that I would like what I was going to hear the day of the wedding. I am so happy that my husband and I stopped under the balcony after taking pictures to listen to him play for a moment. We were both instantly lost in the music and we are so thankful for the opportunity to have Brandt play for our guests.

  • Brandt was so warm and professional from beginning to end! Our guests could not stop talking about him and his music! They plan to hire him for any parties they throw. He is so talented and extremely pleasant to work with. His music added so much to our ceremony and reception! He really sets the mood. I wasn't sure we needed live music, but once I heard him play, I knew we had to to have him at our wedding before he was ever done playing the first song. He also has great ideas if you don't know exactly what you want. Highest recommendation!

  • Brandt provided the music for my ceremony and cocktail hour and he was wonderful! Prior to the wedding, Brandt was easy to get ahold of and responsive. We spoke on the phone once to discuss the type of music we wanted, and my husband and I decided to trust Brandt to pick the songs and set the appropriate mood since he is the professional and knows best. And we were not disappointed! On the day of the wedding Brandt showed up early, and was a good sport since our bridal party was taking photos where we was supposed to set up, but he sat patiently. The music was amazing and we got a lot of compliments about the music from out family and friends.

  • Brandt played at our wedding church ceremony--he is phenomenal! I listened to his rendition of Unchained Melody on his website and I knew I had to have him play for our wedding. There was not a dry eye in the crowd, and I got so many compliments on his guitar playing afterwards. He was very easy to communicate with via email, and even coordinated a day/time to talk to us via Facetime so that he could play us a few options for our wedding ceremony since we didn't live very close by. I highly recommend him, you won't be dissatisfied!

  • I have been meaning to sit an write a review for the great opportunity of having Brandt play at our wedding this past September:) My husband proposed to me in South America while vacationing in Santiago. We decided to search for a guitarist that would share the passion and energy of music we heard while in Chile. We wanted an intimate but memorable guitarist to play at our ceremony and during our reception. Brandt made us feel special the very first time we met. He invited us to a private playing so we could get a sense of his style and music. We could have stayed all evening listening to him. He had wonderful recommendations for our day and even found us a DJ for other parts of our wedding. He visited the venue to ensure he would have everything we requested for our day. He arrived early, played brilliantly and the guests shared what a special touch the music was to our wedding. We are hoping to see him play again and would recommend Brandt for any special occasion.... Read more

  • From the beginning of the planning to the wedding day, Brandt was a joy to work with. His music is fantastic and top quality. More importantly, he is one of the most professional people we have ever worked with. He really cared about making our wedding day special, and worked so hard on every single detail. We highly recommend him to anyone! Thank you so much Brandt!! Matthew and Valeria Newcomer

  • Brandt was very professional and played beautiful music at the ceremony and upbeat gypsy king style at cocktail hour. He was very helpful with song selections. My guests loved the music at cocktail hour which he performed with his percussionist! Flexibility with finding a date to meet was a little difficult because both of our busy schedules conflicted.

    Thanks for the review Regina.. Thank you for having me perform for your beautiful wedding day. The best to you guys! Brandt
