  • OBS was amazing for our wedding ceremony! Working with them before the wedding was so seamless and they were so organized, they sent me a list of their whole repertoire organized by genre and type of music, but were also open to songs not on the list. During the wedding the trio played beautifully! I highly recommend them for your wedding!!

  • Working with Bryan and Occasional Brass and Strings was a wonderful experience. We had a string trio play at our wedding ceremony in July, 2016. Bryan was very easy to work with in planning the music for the event. At first we were not exactly sure what we wanted, but given his thoughtful suggestions, very helpful website, and straightforward planning worksheet, we were able to put together the perfect music for our ceremony. On the day of the wedding, the trio was seamless. They performed everything that we had hoped for beautifully! We received several compliments about the strings, and couldn’t have asked for more! We highly recommend them!

  • Can't say enough good things about Occasional Brass & Strings. Because it is comprised of many many musicians it can be a little scary at first - who exactly will show up to my event? Will they be good? The answer is of course they will be good. All the musicians are clearly extremely talented and well trained. Still, it was hard to imagine that I could tell someone a vibe, musical styling, and list of instruments, and have them come back with the absolute perfect trio - and yet, that is exactly what happened. We were so pleased will all of the musicians. We had a cellist for the ceremony who beautifully played my favorite pieces from Bach's cello suite, and a latin jazz trio comprised of extremely talented and warm individuals that together, produced an amazing sound. We are a family of musicians and I think our expectations may have been quite high - and still they were exceeded. Thank you so much for being a huge part of such a special day!

  • My parents found Occasional Brass and Strings and suggested them to my now husband and myself for our ceremony and cocktail hour music. I'm so glad we decided to choose them! We went with a trio. Bryan was very easy to get in contact with and sent us 3 amazing performers! We were able to choose the songs we wanted to use off their very extensive playlist and then they added in some selections as well. All our guests kept telling us how amazing the trio was! I did hear them playing a bit during cocktail hour (I was so focused on making it down the aisle that I blocked everything out!) and they sounded so amazing! I have actually already recommended them to a friend who is getting married next year! They were so good that anyone would be happy to book them!

  • Occasional Brass was one of the groups included in a response from another website (GigMaster). We chose them partly from instinct and partly from the music samples on their website. It was a great choice. Bryan responded quickly, suggested we use a trio vs. the quartet we requested. It was a great choice. Also it was less costly. We wanted one piece that was not in the group's repertoire. Bryan created an arrangement for a slight additional cost. The week before the wedding we asked if it was possible to do "Truly madly deeply" expecting nothing given the short notice. Bryan made it happen. The trio arrived early, were totally professional, friendly, and brilliant. At least two music professionals among our guests commented on the quality of the music. They created beautiful music that enhanced our ceremony. We could not be happier.

  • The four musicians were absolutely amazing. Our President truly enjoyed them. I was told that the sound level was point on as well. Not too loud that people had to talk over but loud enough that people could enjoy them. They definitely enhanced our night.

  • We had a string trio ensemble and found the music to be appropriate, thoughtfully varied, and most enjoyable. Having classical, smooth standards, and light pop during the cocktail hour lent just the right touch and ambiance before dinner, Kudos to OB&S for a wonderful "table setting" to the evenings festivities,

  • I had a trio of musicians play for my wedding. A carbon fiber cello (awesome!), a viola, and the third musician had a flute, clarinet, alto sax, and soprano sax all with him. They did a great job playing fun and interesting music all evening from our specifically requested "Your Song" by Elton John to Michael Jackson, Bruno Mars, Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones, and even Jurassic Park. They were a great group to have there.

  • We worked with Occasional Brass and Strings for our ceremony music. Bryan was awesome to work with. He gave us great suggestions and promptly answered all our emails. He suggested having a trio - two string instruments and a trumpet. The combo sounded amazing. The company has a huge selection of songs to choose encompassing all genres. It was fun listening to samples and picking out our music. We both love Talking Heads and Bryan was able to come up with an arrangement of one of their songs for when we were introduced as husband and wife. It sounded incredible. Although I did not hear the music played before the ceremony, our guests raved about it. The live music definitely added a touch of fun elegance to our ceremony. I highly recommend OB&S!

  • We hired two musicians to play during the ceremony of our wedding. I didn't hear too much of them, but from what I did hear, it was beautiful! I was worried about how loud they would be at our outdoor ceremony, but there was no issue. Also, I worked with Bryan Hilliard to schedule and pick the selections, and he was very accommodating and helpful, and he helped get us what we wanted in our budget. We had a great experience with them!

  • Amazing all the way around. Music is so important to a wedding. It sets the tone and creates the mood especially in church. I was the MOB and when I first heard the musicians play from the back of the church I was overwhelmed with the beauty of the sound. I wish I could give Bryan and the musicians who played even more stars. Rest assured that if you hire them your event will be even more special and I say this having a BA in music and a daughter in law who is a Julliard and Yale trained viola player. They were superb and Bryan was wonderful in his advice and suggestions. Their repertoire is vast and varied. And I could not believe the reasonable fee. I had five wonderful musicians.
