Your wedding is one of the most precious moments of your life. You deserve the very best and that is what we offer. The right music performed by the right musicians can make all the difference. 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!

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!

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.

I booked the Matt McCallie Orchestra for a client event and wanted to say how incredibly impressed I am with them! Matt was super easy to work with. The band showed up early and was flexible with the set up arrangement (they performed outside, in front of a business, with limited room and power). They have such a wide variety of songs – and catered to our requests for holiday music to go along with the event theme. The Matt McCallie Orchestra added so much to the event and we will definitely be working with them in the future!

Matt and orchestra,

We wanted to personally write and thank you for the unforgettable performance you and your musicians gave the night of our wedding reception!

This is a testimonial not only to you and your band’s amazing talents but also to the professionalism you brought throughout the preparations. Along with the music, the set up, lighting and sound, it was all a tribute to your knowledge and years of experience.

Our special evening was enhanced because of your band’s live performance! Everyone from 8 to 80 felt welcome and invited to celebrate on the dance floor with us. As you know, most guests stayed until close and did not want your classic full melodies to end.

Working closely with us throughout the process in finalizing our Song List was critical in creating just the right mood. The band’s live performance made all the difference in creating the perfect atmosphere.

The Matt McCallie Orchestra is truly a premiere entertainment act and I highly recommend your services to anyone considering making their special event memorable. Your portfolio, attention to detail and the passion you bring enhanced the celebration and joy of our special evening.

Thank you,

Ally and Matt
