Quad City Brass Quintet – Quad Cities Wedding Photography


Recently, I had a shoot with the Quad City Brass Quintet. This group is made up of five extremely talented musicians and is a great option for your Quad Cities wedding. As a photographer and musician, I feel that choosing great ceremony music is one aspect that can greatly impact the mood and experience for you and your guests.

Live musicians provide intuitive musical transitions during your ceremony that a CD cannot. As a photographer, I also get to hear guest reactions throughout the day. The weddings that receive the most compliments from the guests are always the ceremonies with amazing musicians.

Please click below to listen to a few examples of the Quad City Brass Quintet. They can provide music for all aspects of your wedding-day and are also available for other events.

Quad City Brass Quintet

The QCBQ has been in existence, under various personnel, since the early 1980’s.

This ensemble has served as musical entertainment for the premier party for Festival of Trees, guest artists for public schools and college artist series (such as William Penn College), various fundraisers (such as Ambrose Wine Tasting Party), outdoor summer events, special holiday music in many venues (such as the Adler Theatre), public artist series (such as Maquoketa Arts Board), numerous church services and weddings both in Iowa and out of state.

An extensive art form and pop catalogue of music for performance is maintained with new purchases and original arrangements regularly.  Original music has been written specifically for the QCBQ.

Personal requests for arrangements and special music is regularly done.

The ensemble members total an amazing 285+ years of playing experience in symphonic, theatrical, chamber music and recital contexts.  All the players in the QCBQ are sought after players in the region.

Demonstration CD for wedding music is available upon request.  Contact Alan Guss at aguss@mchsi.com or call him at 563-209-7180.   If necessary, please leave a voice message.
