Brian was AMAZING! He arrived on time, went over any questions I had before the ceremony began, and was accommodating to our requests. He provided an atmosphere that cannot be duplicated with a DJ. We received so many compliments from our guests on his performance and they too were impressed by his talent and professionalism. Brian exceeded all expectations we had! Brian added an element to our wedding that can only be described as PERFECT!!! We cannot wait to work with Brian again to help us celebrate an anniversary or two!!

We hired Brian to play at our October 4, 2014 wedding in Petoskey. My only regret is that as the bride I was not able to hear as much of the music as I would have liked! But I received many compliments from my guests telling me how great the music was. Actually, Brian created one of my favorite wedding moments. He was playing the cocktail hour and when it was time for my new husband and I to come into the room, we happened to come in while he was in the middle of "Drift Away." We started singing, then Brian got the whole crowd to do a sing-along. It was perfect. Also, he was the epitome of professionalism. Our outdoor wedding unfortunately happened on a very cold, windy, and rainy day. But Brian and his violinist, Ann Marie, knew how much we wanted them to play. So after working with my family to reconfigure chairs and place themselves in a secure spot, we were a go for our music. I can't thank him enough for going the extra mile. He's truly a talent and I would highly recommend him. Thank you so much Brian for making our wedding day so special!

We can't say enough great things about Brian! Our reception was small (under 50 people), and we hired Brian for both ceremony music (along with his violinist), and reception entertainment. We had a wide age range, from elderly all the way down to college and high school age, and everyone was entertained and engaged the entire 5 hours of the reception. Brian interacted with the crowd, got people up dancing, and was entertaining the entire night. His performance at our ceremony was also spot-on.

We also had Brian learn 2 new songs for our first dance (Keith Urban) and father-daughter dance (Taylor Swift), which he played to perfection.

He was professional, well prepared, showed up well before the event started to set up, and was everything we were hoping for.

We would highly recommend him to everyone.

Brian (and a violinist, Ann Marie) provided ceremony music for our early morning, sunrise ceremony this past Sunday, October 6, 2013. There are so many wonderful things about working with him:
1) from the first communication he was professional, helpful, responsive;
2) his obvious musicianship, showing through in suggested songs, and versatility;
3) his flexibility in dealing with our very early ceremony, knowing full well that he had a late gig the night before, AND that he had to leave our engagement to be at another by noon of the same day. Oh, and did I mention that when he arrived (before 7AM in drizzle and pitch dark) he set up a tent that we were to use IF the weather were to clear.
4) the songs he selected were just perfect for the type of ceremony, and small "reception" we had. I only wish that every couple could experience the fun, impromptu circle dance to "Hey Ho!" for which he provided the music.
We will long remember this event, made so memorable by Brian and Ann Marie!

Brian is the best.

My wife and I needed someone to play ceremony music and our cocktail hour after the ceremony. We wanted a specific song and Brian thought it would be a good idea to get another guitarist and violinist to make the song even better without raising the money we agreed on.

Along with that, Brian agreed to learn 2 additional songs just for us that were not on his list. He is one of the most professional vendors we had the pleasure of dealing with and he is very affordable.

If I could give Brian more than 5 stars I would!

I would recommend Brian to anyone looking for a wedding or entertainment.

Thanks Brian!

-Aaron and Codee

My husband and I cannot express how happy we were having Brian Nolf perform during our wedding ceremony and at the reception. We had an outdoor Lake Michigan wedding at our cottage and Brian made the day magical! We had never met prior to the wedding, athough from the initial phone call through the day of the wedding, Brian was responsive, cooperative, professional and compassionate. I had utmost confidence in his talent and aside from my ceremony selections, let him select all the reception music. Brian sang two songs during the ceremony that he learned for us and everyone was touched. It was amazing! Our family and friends had fun and danced the day away! We will be forever grateful to Brian for making our special day spectacular and fun!
