  • Ryan was responsive, helpful, and incredibly accomodating from the start of the process. He responded to all of my emails quickly and even entertained my most ridiculous questions. He and the other musicians arrived with plenty of time to spare and set up and broke down without us even noticing as we took pictures and talked with our guests (we were getting married on private property so there wasn't even a coordinator to help him get things ready). The ceremony wasn't a standard religious ceremony, but they still never missed a beat with the music. Additionally, Ryan went above and beyond to get speakers and microphones for the ceremony officiant and readers so that I didn't have to. On top of everything the music was lovely and really added a nice touch to our ceremony. It was outdoors and the sound carried beautifully throughout the entire space. We received a lot of compliments. At the end of the day, I can't say enough great things about working with Ryan and Northside Brass.

  • The Northside Brass Quintet has performed at my church on at a number of events. They have done everything from traditional classical works to dixieland jazz. I have worked with them as an ensemble and also with Ryan Hobbs as a trumpet soloist and they are excellent musicians - always prepared, on time, and easy to get along with. My church asks to have them back all the time and loves when they perform!

  • Ryan, you were amazing and made our wedding day beautiful with your talent. With you as an addition to our church's music ministry, it was perfect and all of my family and friends complimented your performance! It was beautiful!

  • NorthSide Brass was a pleasure to work with for our fundraising event. The quintet lent an air of sophistication, were professional and talented. Any questions about the event were promptly answered. They arrived on time, played as requested, were all very gracious, and dressed appropriately for the event. Although NorthSide Brass was hired to provided "background" music, they received well wishes and applause as they exited from an appreciative audience. I would highly recommend NorthSide Brass for any event.

  • Northside Brass serenaded guests at our annual Christmas Walk open house. We have a restaurant inside a large store, and offer complimentary hot mulled cider and cookies to guests while they take a break from shopping. Northside Brass was stationed inside the restaurant. I initially was concerned that having a brass quintet playing inside a restaurant with low ceilings and terra cotta floors would be too disruptive to guests, but this did not prove to be the case at all. In fact, we received many compliments on the music throughout the evening. It was a welcome compliment to a festive evening.

  • Ryan made my vision of an emotional grand entrance into the church a reality. Every girl wants to feel like a princess on her wedding day...and once the trumpets sounded I think everyone attending felt that..including my soon to be husband. Ryan was very professional and worked with the organist on the songs with a tight schedule. He gave me advice on song selection and which ones would make my vision come true. I received many compliments afterwards and needless to say I have a tough family to impress, especially my mom!! I would definitely recommend Ryan's services and I feel his performance is exactly what you need if you want something special and memorable and not the stale old songs everyone hears at weddings. Even if you do choose those songs he can make them a bit more powerful than just an organist playing.....

  • Ryan played with a string quartet at my wedding. My husband and I were married in a garden setting, and I walked down the aisle to "Trumpet Voluntary," which showcased Ryan's trumpet. One of the most vivid memories that I have of that day was standing at the back of the aisle, waiting to walk down it, and hearing Ryan's soaring trumpet. It was a wonderful moment. The trumpet definitely encapsulated the grandness of the moment for me, and was a wonderful addition to the quartet. Ryan is a truly talented musician, and an extremely flexible person to work with. He played exactly what I wanted, and even though "Trumpet Voluntary" is technically a trumpet and piano duet, the difference in the quartet didn't seem to phase Ryan one bit. As an amateur musican and music lover myself, I admire Ryan's talent, and professionalism, and his ability to learn music extremely quickly. He was a wonderful addition to my wedding. I would gladly recommend him to anyone, and would love to have him ... Read more

  • Ryan played the trumpet for us at our wedding, and we couldn't have been happier with his service and talent. We received many compliments from our guests about his performance, and would definitely recommend Ryan to play at other's weddings. He was very professional, easy to work with, and we knew we could count on him to make our wedding ceremony special.

  • Ryan was an incredible and memorable addition to our wedding! My husband and I were married almost ten years ago, and we still get comments on what a unique and elegant touch Ryan added to our special day. I wish I could do the whole day again and Ryan would be the first musician I'd book! Kristen & Josh

  • Ryan was excellent to work with. He had two detailed calls with my fiance and I (we were from out of town) prior to our wedding, and he and his group performed well beyond our expectations. They showed up early and sounded spectacular. I wanted to walk down the aisle to Appalachian Spring, which I wasn't sure would work. Ryan made it work and it was wonderful! Northside Brass is a great group of people with a lot of talent. I highly recommend them!
