  • Brandt is absolutely incredible. We were lucky enough to book him for our outdoor wedding and following cocktail hour last June and feel horrible its taken this long to write a review. He was very responsive to questions and suggestions via phone and email and most importantly, delivered a light's out performance at our wedding. He brought an amazing set up with him that synced with our wedding theme, played pre-ceremony, ceremony, and cocktail hour and truly helped make the whole day amazing. If you need music for anything and he is available, BOOK BRANDT, can't recommend enough.

    Thanks Joe and Torre - You're great for this solid review. Absolutely no worries with posting it when you did - it's never expected! I'm just grateful for being apart of your wedding. The Riviera Country Club was absolutely beautiful. Thank you so much!!

  • Brandt Jacobus Our Wedding: June 9, 2013 We wanted our wedding to have an extra special musical touch instead of the usual wedding music played from a recording. When my mom and I first found Brandt online, his wonderful musical talents blew us away. Shortly after we set up an appointment to hear his exquisite music in person. The sound of music coming from his acoustic guitar brought instant tears to our eyes, it was so romantic and picturesque, we immediately visualized how wonderful or wedding ceremony would be; with these sounds in the air. Not only is Brandt’s music so amazing, he has a pronounced, calm personality that makes him so great at what he does. You can see that he really has a passion for his musical talents, and loves every minute of his work. Brandt, thank you so very much for making our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour extra special and unforgettable. Everyone that was at our wedding is still raving about the beautiful music played that day. You truly made ou... Read more

  • Brandt Jacobus provided beautiful, romantic Spanish Guitar entertainment at our wedding rehearsal dinner last month. Not only is he incredibly talented, but he was very professional and responsive to all of our needs for the event which made him easy to work with. In addition to all of this, Brandt is just a really nice guy. With enthusiasm, I highly recommend Brandt and look forward to working with him again!

  • Brandt performed during our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour at the Bel Air Bay Club in Los Angeles in April. During the week following our wedding everyone talked about how incredibly skilled he is! Aside from his amazing guitar talent, he is a total pleasure to work with. Wedding planning is really challenging, but he made the music selection process so easy.

  • Brandt was a pleasure from the get go. He was extremely attentive to my inquiries. He was positive and reassuring to meet each of my requirements. Upon his arrival to my wedding he greeted us with a smile and great energy. All of my guests were gawking over is music. His passion exudes when he plays. He's both Romantic and elegant. Without a doubt in my mind I would hire him again for upcoming events. He is worth every penny! You won't disagree once you've experienced Brandt!

    Thanks so much for the review Brittini - It was so nice playing for your cocktail hour. We made this day happen rain or shine! I think the balcony worked out perfect... the Ambassador Mansion was a beautiful location. I'll be heading out to Pasadena again soon for another event not too far from there. Hope to stay in touch.. Best to you and Frank! - Brandt

  • Brant was awesome! We did all our coordination via phone and email. I requested a variation on a theme, a Spanish style (flamenco-ish) Here Comes the Bride. He was excited to do something a little different and sent me three different versions via email to choose from. I had been spending so much time working on contracts and coordinating details for the wedding that when I sat down and listened to the beautiful music that would walk me down the aisle (in exactly the style I had asked for), it hit me, his music took me into the moment and I was overwhelmed with tears of happiness! The day of the event, Brant was at our venue early and was dressed professionally, just like on his website. The ceremony music was fantastic, I wish I could have heard more of the pre-ceremony performance (I was tucked away in the bridal cottage). His music was beautiful, our guests thought it really complimented our Spanish style venue. Brant was great to work with from start to finish, I would definitely r... Read more

  • Brandt went above and beyond! He even drove from Manhattan Beach to Santa Barbara to play for our wedding and cocktail hour. I got so many compliments on the Ambiance he created by my guests. We felt so honored to have him play for our wedding. It was extra special because I told Brandt I wanted to sing to my husband at the reception and he learned "At Last" in a Flamenco style. It was beautiful! He was so easy to contact, either email or text. I would definitely recommend him and feel so Blessed that I happened to find out about him online. I took a chance in hiring someone I virtually knew nothing about and I couldn't be any happier. Thank to Brandt!

  • When my husband and I began discussing the sort of music we wanted for our wedding ceremony, we knew we didn’t want something traditional like a string quartet. I had always envisioned something like Spanish guitar music but wasn’t sure if that would work at a wedding. We started our search and found some guitarist samples of “Canon in D” and thought – hey, this could work. But then we found Brandt and wow! His sound was exactly what we were looking for! Not only is he an incredibly talented musician, but he is a pleasure to work with. During our meeting with him, he was very interested in learning about the type of ambience and energy we were hoping to achieve with the music and offered so many wonderful arrangements for us to choose from (many which we would not have thought to choose on our own but ended up being exactly what we had in mind). On the day of the wedding, he arrived early and was setup well before our guests arrived. During the ceremony, his timing was... Read more

  • A few months before the wedding, Brandt took the time to find out what we really wanted for our ceremony and even played his rendition of Canon in D so I could hear how it would sound. Of course, when I heard it as I walked down the aisle, it was beautiful and I got choked up. Between getting ready and photo-taking I didn't get to hear him play much, which is the downside of being the bride, but all our guests said he played beautifully and that it enhanced the theme of the wedding. I would definitely recommend Brandt to family and friends, in the hopes that I would be able to hear more of his guitar playing in the future!

    Hi Lynda! Thank you for the kind words.. I think you sparked my next project. Running an additional monitor to my brides' "prep room"... so that they can enjoy what the guests are enjoying outside!! Well, I really appreciated working with you and performing for your beautiful wedding. Malibou Lake is an amazing venue - I always enjoy performing there! Thank you again greatly!! Best - Brandt

  • My husband and I had Brandt play at our outdoor beach wedding ceremony in malibu, and he was phenomenal. Seriously, if you are thinking of having a live musician or band for your ceremony or cocktail hour, I would highly recommend Brandt Jacobus. He is more than professional, extremely talented, and is very experienced in weddings/events.. not to mention all of my guests LOVED his music. He will work with you from the moment you contact you, up until the day of your wedding, and will even put together an amazing playlist for you. We are so happy we had him play at our wedding, it was perfect!!!!

    I really appreciate the kind words Rechelda.. Your beach wedding was amazing... just a beautiful day. You guys were great to work with and hope to stay in touch! Warmly - Brandt

  • Brandt exceeded our expectations. Brandt was both reliable and responsive to our requests every step of the way. He was incredibly flexible in learning the specific songs we wanted for our wedding ceremony and added a sense of intimacy to the event. We received many compliments for his music during out cocktail hour, with several of our guests asking if he had an album available. We were very pleased with his pricing, and honestly would expect to pay more for such quality and professionalism. We would absolutely recommend him for your wedding or next event.

    Hi Jon and Angie! Thank you greatly for these sweet words. Your wedding was beautiful (awesome weather for a beach wedding!) Just a great honor to perform for your wedding day! I have another event at Sunset Restaurant soon... I really enjoy performing at that venue! I'm always working on recordings / CD hopefully sometime.. you'll be one of the first to know.. Thanks again!! In touch! - Brandt

  • My wife and I hired Brandt to perform several songs during our wedding service, and also for a portion of the reception and meal afterwards. Brandt was extremely flexible with our choice of venue--outdoors in a park on a hot day! He was able to provide us with a high-quality soundtrack for our day, and we *loved* his song suggestions. We are extremely satisfied with Brandt's work, and the level of care and concern that he showed when arranging the details in the several months before our wedding.

    Jonathan - Thank you for this kind review. It was great working with you and Lisa. That was the perfect setting with those massive trees providing shade for everyone! Just an absolute honor to perform for your wedding day! - Best to you guys! - Brandt
