Jeff Brown Music Performance is great for receptions and corporate events.

Testimonials

We had danced with the Jeff Brown Orchestra at other events, so we knew that they'd be fabulous. But having the six-piece ensemble play at our daughter's wedding surpassed all our expectations. They added great spirit to this very joyful celebration. Almost everyone danced, from ages 2 to 88, and all our guests were buzzing about how much they loved the music. The performers were awesome, and the selections were perfect. Jeff even created a new special arrangement of the couple's favorite song for their first dance, and he also suggested just the right song for the second dance (with parents) and the third (where ALL joined in with great enthusiasm). He really understands how to make a party special. THANK YOU, JEFF!

Hi Jeff,

We want to thank you for another fabulous evening of music and fun at our daughter Heidi's wedding on Saturday at The Palmer House! We all had so much fun, and no one wanted the evening to end. Your band plays so many kinds of music so well, that there is truly something for everyone who loves music. The guests enjoyed every minute of it - I'm sure you could tell - they would have danced all night if they could! We have been to weddings where no one at all gets up to dance, but your band makes that an impossibility. Right from the beginning, as you were playing the beautiful dinnertime music, our friends and family could not resist the urge to take a few turns around the dance floor. Then, when the rock and roll started there wasn't an empty spot on the dance floor, and that continued until the end of the evening. What is so special about your group is the obvious pleasure they get from seeing people enjoy their music. You can just tell that you and your band members really love what you do and that is what makes for a great experience. Thank you so much for helping to give Heidi, in her words, "the best night of her life"!

Sincerely,
Dirk & Cathi Peterson

"Jeff, thank you so very much for coming to Rensselaer for our "Art in the Alley" festival. By all accounts around 170 people showed up for the event and enjoyed it very much. Your music was excellent, and just what we were wanting. (even better!!!) I haven't had a chance to play your CD, but will very soon. I do thank you very much as we will certainly enjoy listening to it. We will definitely keep you in mind for future events in Rensselaer. Again, thank you to you and your group for bringing your special music to Rensselaer."

"It has been my pleasure to work with Jeff Brown and Brown's Music Service for fundraising events for the Valparaiso Family YMCA, such as socials and our now annual "Jazz and Blues Fest." Jeff and his band are talented professionals and always well-received by their audience. I have heard the group in several venues - area fundraisers such as the Kappa's "Taste" of Valparaiso and Valparaiso University's "Jazz Fest", weddings, events at the Porter County Expo Center, and the outdoor European Market in Chesterton, to name a few. Jeff is a professional, diversified musician, who takes his audience into consideration when bringing his group to perform - a class act!"

"The music at our wedding reception was everything we could have dreamed of and more! It was the highlight of the evening. At one point, at least 98% of guests at the reception were out on the dance floor, which was a record for that particular reception hall. Many people commented to me after the wedding how much they enjoyed the lively band!

"Having the combo play during dinner was perfect! No need to call a DJ or provide our own music. Jeff was able to find the right mix of musicians to fit our needs. After dinner was over, a few more musicians showed up and the dancing was ready to begin."
