    We booked a violin/guitar duo for our wedding and they were great. Morgan was great to communicate with, answering our (many) questions and concerns. They even learned to play a special request for us. Musicians were punctual and professional. Would highly recommend.

    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.

We had a specific song in mind for the processional and MO was able to source the music for the guitarist and violinist and played it beautifully on our special day! They are great to work with and have numerous options for live music! Highly recommend them!
