Occasional Brass & Strings provides a vibrant and fun set of ensembles, ranging from duo to quintet. Based in Boston, we are as comfortable playing Bach, Handel, and Mozart as we are Scott Joplin, Count Basie, The Beatles, Coldplay, and more!

String and Brass ensembles provide the perfect music for weddings, receptions, cocktail parties, corporate events, religious services, graduations, etc. We specialize in trios, quartets, and quintets for outdoor weddings and cocktail hours. Need a custom ensemble? We can provide a soloist, duo, trio, quartet, or quintet with just about any combination of trumpet, french horn, trombone, tuba, violin, viola, cello, piano, flute, harp, sax...the possibilities are endless.

Contemporary arrangements include Coldplay (Viva La Vida, Fix You), U2 (All I Want Is You, Beautiful Day), Queen (Somebody To Love, Bohemian Rhapsody), Rascal Flatts (Bless The Broken Road), Taylor Swift (You Belong With Me), Journey (Don't Stop Believin'), Pearl Jam (Even Flow), AC/DC (You Shook Me All Night Long), Madonna (Like A Prayer, Rain), Michael Bouble (Haven't Met You Yet), Harry Connick (It Had To Be You), Van Morrison (Brown-Eyed Girl), The Beatles (All You Need Is Love, When I'm 64, Hey Jude, Ob La Di), Shania Twain (From This Moment On), and so much more.

We have musicians in and around Boston, Worcester, Cape Cod (MA), Newport (RI), Portland (ME), and Hartford (CT) - this cuts down on travel fees! Call or email today for a free price quote.

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!!
