At Todd Brunel Musical Groups, we customize our musical services to fit your needs. We like to have fun because we have worked very hard over the years to perfect our craft. You can definitely enjoy your next event knowing your invited guests are in for a special musical treat. You see our professional musicians are some of the best in New England and our programs feature traditional jazz, swing jazz, modern jazz, classical music, world music, holiday favorites and pop/rock hits. Need to make speeches or want to play your favorite song list or host a dance party? We can provide that as well with our world class Yamaha sound system...some people would call that DJ services, we call it being the life of the party. It's simple. You have a gathering or a function and need that little extra something to make your event special, get people talking or dancing. Let's discuss some scenarios for a minute. Either you or someone you know is getting married or turning 40 or 80! You have a diverse pool of invited guests from work colleagues, to college friends, neighborhood friends and family. Our world class musicians can either provide background music or do a full performance and during breaks play your favorite song list, or later in the evening, pull up the rug and start that dance party you've always dreamed about.

Clarinetist and saxophonist Todd Brunel hailed as playing with "Tremendous virtuosity and heart" by the Boston Globe, has been working as a professional musician for over 25 years. He has performed at such stages as Carnegie Hall, Regatta Bar, The Montreal Jazz Festival, BOZAR in Brussells, Belgium, Preservation Jazz Hall, TEATRO NO'HMA in Milan, Italy and colleges and universities throughout the United States and abroad. He is an in-demand musician who performs in various groups and styles from jazz to classical to world music. He is the clarinet and saxophone professor at Wheaton College in Norton, MA and a Conn-Selmer endorsing artist and clinician.

A few years ago, he teamed up with 'Masterful Boston guitarist' (Josef Woodard, Downbeat Magazine) Eric Hofbauer, to form a duo with the explicit goal of providing great live music entertainment at house concerts, private functions and other small venues or events in New England. Since that time our duo has expanded!

The Brunel Hofbauer Duo (trio, quartet and quintet):

After years of working together in various creative projects, including the Variable Density Sound Orchestra featuring Jazz legend John Tchicai, the two formed a duo to perform Swing and Bop Era classic repertoire with a modern twist. Their unique clarinet and guitar combination blends the legacy of the Benny Goodman/Charlie Christian, and Jim Hall/Jimmy Giuffre traditions with a highly conversational, modern rhythmic style. The duo is perfectly suited for intimate setting of quiet listening, or functions where the music adds culture and atmosphere to the surroundings They also love to team up with some of the very best jazz and classical musicians in the New England area in larger ensembles of mixed strings, winds and brass in trio, quartet, quintet or larger chamber orchestra configurations. They are flexible, adapt to your party needs and take requests on demand.

Superb musician!! understood the audience and made and took suggestions for the genres of music. Extremely flexible and kind. Highly recommend Todd Brunel who also brought a talented keyboardist with him. They were a great duo!! Even graciously welcomed one of our guests to jam with them.

Wow thank you so much Nancy! As you may have gathered I decided to continue my membership with Gigmasters so your recommendation goes along way. It was so great to meet your family and to celebrate with you. I hope the West Coast is treating you well and I'll talk with you soon. Todd

If you are looking for a extremely versatile, talented musicians book Todd Brunel's group. We booked Todd for a wedding on a boat and they were easy to work with from start to finish. Their music is high quality and many of our guests said how wonderful there were. My five-star ratings are not an exaggeration. I would give them more stars if I could.
