Here are a few comments from people we truly appreciate..
"To the lovely talent housed in Occasional Notes ,
Our wedding in April was the perfect day. I never wanted a fairytale... I wanted to feel like a day full of authentic love with the people my husband and I care about most in the room to witness. We are lucky to have the ladies of occasional Notes as dear friends- the MUSIC, wow - the music made the day that much more special .Barb and Laurie sit you down and ask you questions to be able to see what makes your relationship tick. They take the time to get to know you and understand the music that moves you. They take those tidbits and run with it creating a beautiful atmosphere full of songs that will get your guests excited with anticipation as they wait for the bridal party to arrive. As a bride .. standing in the hallway with my dad waiting to go into the room and hearing the song you choose MASTERFULLY done? Tears. Happy happy tears. Every detail was perfectly passionate and professionally executed. As a bride there is absolutely no need to stress once you talk to these ladies .They know what they are doing and they will do it better than you can ever imagine. They will suggest things that suit you ...they will gather amazing singers who will sing your special songs...they will hug you at the end because they genuinely care about you. I would absolutely recommend Occasional Notes for ANY event you may be considering . The team loves what they do and that comes out beautifully through their music. "

"From the time that we got engaged, we knew that we wanted Occasional Notes to play at our wedding. We had seen them perform at various events in the past and were blown away by their talent. We had booked Barb and Laurie approximately a year in advanced and every few months, they got in contact with us to see how we were doing and bounce ideas back and forth with us. They even provided us recommendations for other venues that we ended up using. The planning of our ceremony was a lot of fun. We met at the Occasional Notes studio where Barb and Laurie had already prepared many song choices that suited our personalities and music taste. We were able to identify exactly what we wanted in no time. Our ceremony would not have been the same without Occasional Notes. What a difference live music makes!! We had so many compliments from our guests and everyone had so much fun watching the Bride walk down to "I Can See The Light" at our Disney inspired wedding. " - Anna and Will- August 2, 2016
"Laurie and Barb were such a pleasure to work with. Their expertise and passion shine through with everything they do. They had excellent recommendations for music, even for parts of the day they weren't playing for. Having them play for our ceremony added exactly the right touch and made the day that much more special. We had multiple guests approach us and tell us how much they loved the piano playing as well. I would recommend Occassional Notes to anyone! "Caitlin Cunningham -March 24, 2017
"It gives me great satisfaction to be able to write this letter of recommendation for Occasional Notes. I am always amazed at their ability to adapt to any situation, creativity and their song selection.
Recently I had the opportunity to hire Occasional Notes for a Gala and due to the fact that the Gala was for a charity fundraising event the ladies at Occasional Notes jumped all in and donated their services. This is one more characteristic that has made me fall in love with Laurie and Barb, they never hesitate to lend a helping hand. During this Gala they did a complete choreographed event that included pre-dinner entertainment, dinner music and after dinner music. Their uncanny way of interacting with the audience was mesmerizing. Guests at the event would not stop talking about their entire ensemble.
The amount of talent that Occasional Notes has will fit into anyone’s style and budget. I would not hesitate to refer them to any client of my mine and continue to do so. If you are looking for a musical group that can sing, dance and entertain please look no further than Occasional Notes."

"Occasional Notes was absolutely amazing to work with for our wedding day. Right from the beginning, they were excellent with communication, and provided their expertise in ensuring the ceremony would run smoothly. Not only did they help us pick beautiful songs that fit us as a couple, but they were also able to learn a song we requested! Barb & Laurie are undoubtedly talented in what they do, extremely friendly and such a joy to work with - we can't thank you ladies enough!"
