Our music will create a soundscape that will compliment and enhance the beauty, elegance, and joy of your special day.

No other band in St. Louis offers our level of quality, professionalism and flexibility in services. This is the type of band you see in classic films at the finest engagements. You guests will be talking about this band for years to come!

Our elegant string quartet puts their bows to the strings for time-honored classical traditionals penned by history's greatest composers including Mozart, Bach, Brahms, Wagner, Mouret, and Pachelbel. Our jazz combo covers the cool swing and be-bop of Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Charlie Parker, Herbie Hancock, Monk, and Mingus. Our rock band ignites the dance floor with Neil Diamond, Kenny Loggins, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, CCR, Bryan Adams,, Queen, Eagles. Our horn band livens up any party with Motown, funk, R&B, and soul from Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Michael Jackson, James Brown, Wilson Pickett, and The Temptations. Our big band swings with the stylings of Harry Connick, Jr., Michael Bublé, Frank Sinatra, and Bobby Darin with the utmost style. And even the youngest in the crowd will love the Katy Perry, Justin Timberlake, Bruno Mars, Robin Thicke, Maroon 5, and Jason Mraz. We even cover country and folk classics by John Denver, James Taylor, Willie Nelson, Shania Twain... no other band in St. Louis covers this much repertoire with such great authenticity. And most impressive is that our band has more than just the typical rhythm section with vocals, guitar, bass, drums, and keyboard. We do it with over a dozen horns and strings for the most impressive pop ensemble you may have ever seen!

This band will keep the party on the dance floor all night and make sure your special day is a memorable event you will always cherish. There is none better!

A huge thank you to The Matt McCallie Orchestra for the wonderful job you all did at our wedding! It was perfect! My husband and I received so many compliments about the music! It made our wedding ceremony even more beautiful than we'd ever imagined.
I initially contacted Matt only 3 weeks before the ceremony and he was still able to pull everything together (a pianist, violinist and guitarist), even when we had special song requests. He was very professional to deal with and was super helpful from beginning to end. The price was also very reasonable.
Thanks again Matt!

We want to pass along how wonderful Mr McCallie and the String Quartet performed at our Daughter's wedding. The music was beautiful and really set the ambiance for the wedding. It was an exceptional experience with the live music, the beautiful day, lovely bride and handsome groom. The music just made the ceremony all that more special. It added a touch of class and elegance. Our family and friends commented how beautiful the service was and how your music made all the difference.

The wedding string quartet was wonderful with a great sound quality, and the sound of the trumpet was flawless -- beautiful tone! The venue at St James Catholic Church was perfect for this wedding.

I would recommend The Matt McCallie Orchestra for your wedding music! You could not choose a better musical group for your wedding!

I was looking for a live band with a full horns section for a good price. I didn't want an overpriced band that would only do cheesy covers of current pop songs, and I most definitely didn't want a DJ playing the electric slide, cupid shuffle or cha cha slide. The Matt McCallie Orchestra was fantastic, emceeing the reception flawlessly from start to finish. They did a great job of accommodating the energy of the crowd and had people dancing for hours. I really can't speak highly enough of them. Hire them for your event and you will not be disappointed!

Very easy to communicate with prior to the wedding. Matt took special requests with very little question to accomodate us. Not all of our songs were played due to a shorter time frame, but we were still very happy with the atmosphere created by the orchestra playing before, during, and after the ceremony.

The Matt McCallie Orchestra was the highlight of our wedding reception. My guests STILL rave about how entertaining and great the band was. They were very flexible with my song requests and even stepped up to the plate when my ceremony musician backed out. Their talent is endless! I can't say enough about how the MMO exceeded my expectations on our special day.
