    They will make your dream come true.

    I really wanted a music band for our ceremony music and cocktail hour and Musical Occasions made my dream come true. We chose String trio and they played classical music. Their music made our day extra special and I had received so many compliments from our guests saying how wonderful to have the live music for the wedding. I can't be happier with their art of work! Thank you!

    Musical Occasions added the perfect touch to our ceremony and cocktail hour. They were so professional and wonderful musicians and needed little to no direction from us for all the transitions. Morgan was very responsive and easy to work with, even with some last minute changes that happened. We used the violin and guitar duo.

    Musical Occasions Made Our Day Extra Special

    Music was one of my top priorities for our wedding, and Musical Occasions was the perfect choice. Morgan was amazing to correspond with - incredibly patient and understanding. We hired a string quartet and they custom arranged a special Madonna song for us, and it sounded fantastic! I also gave them a very specific list of instructions for the rest of the music, and they followed my instructions to a tee. They have an incredible repertoire to choose from, and they were truly skilled musicians!

    Good for weddings

    We chose the string quartet. Good for weddings and intimate special occasions. However, it is important to find a space/room with decent acoustics or have them play outdoors as our oddly shaped hall was not ideal for their sound.

    Best choice for music for any occasion!

    Musical Occasions provided music for our wedding and it couldn't haven been better. From strings to DJ's, everyone delivered and the booking and planning process were very easy and flexible. Recommended!
