Musicians of Santa Barbara Aims to Aid Event Planning

Online Resource for Finding and Booking Local Talent


Maybe the hardest thing to shop for just got easier. You can easily scroll through a list of venues, caterers, planners, photographers, but where are the musicians? Most of the musicians that pop up are based somewhere outside of Santa Barbara. Santa Barbara is home to incredibly talented musicians, but many do not advertise and are only heard about through word of mouth. So how does one shop for quality musicians?

Dozens of Santa Barbara area musicians are available through Musicians of Santa Barbara. A great source for shopping, selecting and hiring local professional musicians, you can call Musicians of Santa Barbara (805.637.8773) and talk to a music consultant to discuss various options to find the perfect fit for your style, theme and budget.

When it comes to setting the mood, music reigns supreme and nothing does it better than quality live music. It should be used to enhance the ceremony location, so while an ukulele may be perfect for an outdoor beach ceremony, a bold trumpet or a string quartet will sound impressive in one of the many beautiful local churches. Exceptional wedding entertainment is the key to a great reception as well. Whether you want your guests dancing on the tabletops by night’s end or would rather keep the atmosphere formal and elegant, your reception music will help set the mood.

The goal at Musicians of Santa Barbara is to make it easier than ever to select and hire the perfect local musicians for your event.
