  3. Music Sampling

  4. The goal is for you to actively listen to samples of music played by the artists that fit the style of music you envision for your event. Please visit the Music section of our web site to listen to audio samples or view video demos of our musicians.

  5. Availability

  6. Once you have chosen the style of music and/or the artists that you would like to have play at your event, we determine if they are available. If they are not, we will provide you with more choices to choose from.

  7. Customization

  8. This step is only necessary if you would like to choose your own personalized wedding ceremony music. We can easily guide you through this process via email or on the phone. We recommend that you leave the majority of the song selections to the professionals. It is best if you choose only your own processionals, signing and recessional selections.

We have been working with Jan and the Musical Occasions team for more than 5 years, and could not be happier with the service and talent that gets sent our way. Always attentive to our needs, there is nothing too outrageous that Jan and her stable of exceptional musicians cannot pull off. Whether it’s a classy jazz trio for an afternoon cocktail event or a complex live show encompassing various artists, Musical occasions always comes through in the clutch.
