Ben Siems / The Willie August Project Because I play several instruments and a variety of musical styles, I can provide both wedding ceremony and reception music for almost any style of wedding, from traditional to casual.

My two main instruments are cello and guitar, and I regularly work with musicians who play all of the following: cello, violin, flute, trumpet, piano, upright bass, percussion, and others.

For wedding ceremonies, I have provided music in all of the following formats: Classical (solo cello, two cellos, cello with vocalist, cello and violin, etc.); Folk (solo guitar, guitar with vocalist, guitar with piano, etc.); Meditative jazz (cello and guitar, guitar with upright bass, etc.)

For wedding receptions, I have provided the following styles and instrumental combinations: Jazz (with my trio, The Willie August Project - http://WillieAugust.tripod.com); Rock/Reggae/Blues/etc. (four- or five-piece band); Standards/American songbook (various instrumentations, with or without vocalist).

Whatever your stylistic preferences are, you can be assured that I work only with professional musicians and will provide the soundtrack you need to make your special day as perfect as it can be. Read less

We were so impressed with Ben when he put the music together for our wedding this past spring. We had some very specific requests with a mix of traditional and modern selections, which he was able to weave together seamlessly. Music is very important to me and my husband, and since Ben did the arrangements himself, it allowed for a lot of flexibility and customization. He is very reasonably priced, and was responsive over both phone and email whenever we had questions or wanted input. He was also able to send samples of our songs before the wedding so we could get an idea of what they would sound like and let him know if we wanted anything changed. Everything was beautiful and we had so many compliments about the music; my only regret is that I didn't record it! Ben is a true professional and we would love the opportunity to work with him again!

Ben did an amazing job at our wedding. He was extremely responsive. Always returned calls and emails in a timely manner. He arranged 2 modern songs just for us and emailed us the recordings ahead of time so we could ok them and use them for the rehearsal. We also used him for a cocktail party the night before the wedding and did an amazing job. We thoughly enjoyed working with Ben and would hire him again!

Ben Siems held together the music for the ceremony wonderfully. He put in his heart and time. And he also put together a band for the Chase's restaurant, which our wedding guests migrated up to after our DJ music ended. The band was very fun and classy.
