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.

These musicians were professional and talented. They made my daughter's wedding ceremony so special! I would highly recommend them to anyone. They played for us without a rehearsal,and they were seamless. Bryan always gets back right away with questions and was great to work with.

I had a trio of musicians play for my wedding. A carbon fiber cello (awesome!), a viola, and the third musician had a flute, clarinet, alto sax, and soprano sax all with him. They did a great job playing fun and interesting music all evening from our specifically requested "Your Song" by Elton John to Michael Jackson, Bruno Mars, Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones, and even Jurassic Park. They were a great group to have there.
