We used Jaclyn Duncan Music for our cocktail hour and they were amazing. We had over 270 people and Jaclyn advised me what would work in this setting. The team was fantastic from their professionalism to their talent. My younger sister already has them booked for her wedding in October!
I can't say enough good things about JD Music! Not only is JD phenomenal to work with...but she and her team are incredibly talented!!! You won't go wrong with making JD music a part of your next event and/or wedding!!!!!
Jaclyn Duncan Music added so much to our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour! They were so flexible and learned three new songs for our ceremony- Can You Feel the Love Tonight, The Sound of Music Wedding March, and the Superman Theme Song! These songs were very important to us, and it was key to have them played at our wedding. The trio played the songs perfectly on flute, violin and cello, and Jaclyn even brought her piano so that I could get the organ sound for the Sound of Music Wedding March. The live music really set such an incredible mood, and all of our guests loved it! We extended to a cocktail hour and a half, so the trio stayed for the extra half hour for a small fee. The beautiful live music was well worth the price we paid.
Prior to signing a contract we were happy that we were able to attend the group's practice session so that we could hear them play live. This made us very confident about our choice. Also, the vast repertoire on their website helped us get a good idea of the style and quality of music they play. Whenever I emailed or called Jaclyn with a question she responded ASAP. This was very crucial when we had to reschedule our wedding date after we had already signed our contract. Jaclyn’s speedy communications helped us pick a new date that worked with her and all of our other vendors. My husband and I, and our families all highly recommend Jaclyn Duncan Music!
I knew I wanted a flutist for my wedding ceremony and inquired with six people. Ultimately we hired the flute-cello duo of Jaclyn and Mark, which was an easy decision. First, the price was competitive. Secondly, Jaclyn's website was easy to navigate with a song list and audio clips that made clear exactly what we'd get and what the many options were. Finally, I appreciated Jaclyn's prompt and thoughtful responses to my emails. Since I am not an instrumental music expert, I looked to her to advise on what instrument combinations would be best and what songs would be best before and after the ceremony. She was very easy to communicate with, flexible, and organized, and the booking process was simple.
On our wedding day, Jaclyn and Mark arrived super early. I had asked my cousin, a professional saxophonist, to play "Here Comes the Bride," and it was easy for him to coordinate with Jaclyn and Mark, who played the rest of the ceremony music and songs while guests were arriving and departing. All the music was flawless, and we received many compliments from the guests, including some professional musicians who were in the crowd. I truly feel that having Jaclyn and Mark added SO MUCH ELEGANCE to our event! I highly recommend Jaclyn Duncan Music for anyone's wedding or party—incredibly talented musicians and total professionals too.
Jaclyn Duncan Music truly made our wedding a day we will never forget. Aside from being extremely talented musicians, they were all very professional and a pleasure to work with. Jaclyn was super easy to work with, and her pricing was very reasonable. Her trio was able to learn every song we asked them to, and played the songs flawlessly. When our friends and family talk about our wedding, the music provided always is the highlight of everyone's experience. We will absolutely be using Jaclyn again for future events, cant recommend her any higher. 5 stars doesn't do justice!!!!

Phenomenal musicians. The perfect touch for our ceremony and cocktail hour. Elegant but easy going. The guitarist and violinist were amazing and played all of our requests beautifully. They even learned special music so I could surprise my husband and guests. Best money we could have spent!
Jaclyn Duncan Music provided us with a harpist for our cocktail hour that was held on a yacht. This company was phenomenal and reliable. They were very accommodating and dealt well with two time changes. I requested a song, was not present when it was played (because I was late) and the harpist gladly played the song for me when I was there. She did a beautiful job and I am so happy I went ahead with this idea - we almost didn't to save money but she was worth every penny. Also, the company is flexible with billing options. Seriously, I have nothing negative to say (which by the way is the the case with all of our other vendors!).
Jaclyn Duncan Musicians were a pleasure to work with. They were prompt, professional, and most importantly very talented. They added such a special touch to my wedding ceremony. I would highly recommend them to any bride!
Jacyln was a pleasure to work with, provided outstanding and very elegant music for our outdoor ceremony and cocktail hour, and she provided wonderful suggestions and insights. We would highly recommend her.
Our ceremony music was beautiful and we could not have asked for anything more - everyone complimented what an elegant touch it added to the wedding and Jaclyn was so easy to work with. I had an odd request for one of the songs we wanted to play and they were extremely accommodating and responded very quickly to us. Would definitely recommend to anyone!
We contacted Jaclyn to play for our ceremony and cocktail hour a few months before the wedding. She was incredibly professional and easy to work with. We were able to listen to samples of music on the user-friendly website. Jaclyn even had the trio learn a specially requested song for the ceremony. The music was absolutely beautiful. We had dozens of compliments. The trio added a whole level of elegance and created such a romantic environment. We continue to discuss how wonderful the trio was! Their performance was one of the best additions to our wedding!
Just had my 50th birthday party and Patricia played the harp for my guess and everyone love it. Thank you Patty and Jaclyn!!!
I wanted to have live classical musicians for my wedding, which was also a full Catholic mass. I knew it may be challenging to find people that were knowledgeable in the traditional music, as I did not want an organ to lead the wedding ceremony. I was fortunate enough to find Jaclyn on the internet and knew after listening to the clips on her website that it was exactly what I was looking for. Contacting her was very easy and she always responded quickly to any questions I had, both on the phone and by email. We were also able to go listen to the group (we went with flute/violin/cello trio) perform and we were in awe of their range of music that they perform that we had to extend them to play during our cocktail hour! She and her team where able to play a mix of classical music with Catholic mass music and our guests at the ceremony were so amazed and touched by their beautiful music. It was exactly what I wanted on the day of the wedding to make the day special. And it was such a treat for us and the guests to have them play a range of music from rock, pop, musicals, movies, and so much more. We continue to hear accolades about their music and how it added such a wonderfully special element to our day. We cannot say enough amazing things about them and highly recommend them to anyone thinking of using live musicians for their occasion.
We decided at the last minute to book a ceremony musician and Jaclyn was very accommodating and responsive! We contracted one violinist. She played for an hour and we had 4 different songs for the ceremony entrances and recessional. Everything was perfect! I would highly recommend Jaclyn Duncan Music!
Wow!!! It was totally worth hiring such talented group of people. It added such a special feel to the ceremony. The day of the wedding gets pretty stressful and hectic, but listening to the music not only relieved that stress but reminded me of how special that day really is. I loved it and so did everyone else. Jaclyn is great to work with, responds promptly to emails/messages and will make your day run smoothly. Absolute yes to recommend.
If you are looking for live musicians for your wedding then really look no further. We had the pleasure of having Mark and Heather for our ceremony and cocktail hour and and couldn't be happier. Aside from there services being top notch, contacting Jaclyn is a pleasure. Thank you again.
Highly recommend this group! They made my ceremony perfect by providing gorgeous violin music. They were responsive, easy to work with, and professional.
If you need great music and service for your wedding please contact Jaclyn Duncan Music. Everything was wonderful and went with ease!. My daughter's wedding was extra special because we picked Jaclyn Duncan Music for her wedding. We had Patty Tourse playing the harp and everyone only had pleasant things to say about how the music enhanced her ceremony!
We hired Jaclyn Duncan to perform with a trio (flute, violin, cello) for our ceremony. They sounded great (from the earliest notes of prelude music) to an interlude in the middle of the ceremony, during something like a unity candle lighting. Jacyln was great about planning, even offering to learn specific music if it wasn't something in their repertoire. We recently got our wedding video back and they sounded great there, too!
From the moment I first e-mailed Jaclyn inquiring about ceremony music, she was in constant contact with me with extremely quick responses (even on the weekends and evenings!) She made planning the music selections so easy and gave me some great ideas! I received so many compliments about the violin and cello player that I had for the ceremony and reception. The music was beautiful and the musicians were very professional. They arrived early which was great! I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Jaclyn Duncan Music!
