"Allison was unquestionably the easiest person to work with throughout our entire wedding planning process. She was very responsive, her pricing was clear and very reasonable and of course the music was fantastic. Allison showed up on time and performed everything we requested exactly as we had hoped. I can't recommend her enough!"
-David, wedding at Chequesset Country Club in Wellfleet, Massachusetts
"Allison was very professional and accommodating. She got back to me very promptly and made sure she had every detail. She arrived early and played for my guests as they arrived. Allison sent me a few music choices to choose from as I was unsure as to what I wanted. I highly recommend Allison for your upcoming function!"
-Melissa, wedding at Stevens-Coolidge Place in North Andover, Massachusetts
"Occasional Music" had come well-recommended, so we chose them for musical accompaniment at our daughter's wedding. We certainly weren't disappointed ... they excelled in every way! They arrived promptly at the rehearsal and carefully pre-scored the processional music to fit the length of the walk down the aisle. During the wedding itself, they successfully overcame a 20-knot wind whistling through door of the picturesque stone chapel atop Sunset Hill in Hyannis Port! From the incidental music at the outset to the recessional at the end, their music was absolutely beautiful, and drew unanimous acclaim from those in the congregation. In sum, we couldn't have been more pleased and delighted with their performance."
-Willie and Alan Shoemaker, wedding in Hyannisport, Massachusetts
"Allison was wonderful to work with! She gave many ideas on songs and helped create a set-list of songs that worked perfectly with our wedding ceremony. They're great and HIGHLY recommended! "
-Aimee J., wedding in Narragansett, Rhode Island
"This group is very talented. Allison was professional and courteous to work with. They were able to accommodate my last minute booking and we could not have been happier. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a talented young group to provide intimate music for any occasion. Thanks so much for sharing in our special day!! Jon and Monica"
-Jonathan P., wedding in Berlin, New Hampshire
"Allison and Occasional Music were absolutely a joy to work with. Not only were they able to accommodate my time-frame and venue, but they were also able to accommodate my music selection as well as my desire to surprise my then girlfriend - now fiance. I absolutely can not recommend them more in terms of their overall talent (after all, seeing them play "Single Ladies" was incredibly impressive) or in terms of customer service and professionalism. They were fantastic."
-Eric S., proposal in the Boston Public Garden, Massachusetts
