Steve Patrick
Musical Director


Start your wedding ceremony with the mood and feel that you desire. Choose any combination of piano, flute, trumpet, flugelhorn, organ, brass quintet, string trio or quartet.

Make your wedding classic and timeless by choosing a trumpet to announce the wedding party.

Present the new couple with a timeless announcement, traditionally performed on trumpet.

Conclude your ceremony with lively, up tempo classical music, to set a tone of celebration.

Exit Music-
Though not as common, a very beautiful addition to your wedding is greeting your guests in the lobby to light jazz standards performed on a flugelhorn and / or keyboard.

Continue the festivities with one of Nashville's many fine wedding / party bands. This includes: Sam Levine's "City Lights", Manhattan Dance Orchestra, Pat Patrick, The David Humphreys Orchestra, Craig Duncan, Blue Tone Music, John Cheek's "Big Sofa and the Lazy Boys", and others. All of the above bands are capable performers in all musical styles. You can hear these bands on this web site...Click

What Others Are Saying

For my wedding ceremony I chose the flute, cello, violin and trumpet ensemble, and I could not have been happier with the outcome. In fact I have had many, many compliments on how incredible the music sounded. The musicians were awesome players not to mention definite professionals. I would absolutely recommend SP Musical Services to anyone wanting excellent quality music. Thanks so much for the wonderful music and for helping to make my fairtale ceremony a reality.

India H. Johnson

Steve, Thanks for helping to make Maggie's wedding day extra special. The music and your playing was excellent. It was a pleasure working with you.

Sherry Yeager

We needed someone to play several standard and other much more difficult selections. Steve was definitely up to the Task. He worked with our organist to play every piece we requested for the ceremony. Since both my wife and I had a musical background, our needs were very specific. For what ever your need may be, you will not find a finer musician and/or musical coordinator for your event.

Matt & Sara Eleam

Steve Patrick (trumpet) and his string trio were not just an added touch to our wedding - they absolutely made our ceremony an unforgettable and moving event.
We could not have been more pleased with their professionalism, and we highly recommend them to anyone.

Shannon and Jonathan Frost

“My new wife and I could not be happier with Steve and the other musicians he set up for us. We knew of Steve’s extraordinary talent but he also selected wonderful musicians for our wedding. He directed us to Sam Levine’s band “City Lights” which topped off the night at the reception. EVERY comment we have received on our wedding begins with “how great the music was”. Thanks Steve.

Marvin & Marla Neely

Thank you so much for playing at our wedding. Hearing the trumpet before I walked down the aisle was truly a high point of my day. You are truly talented and we appreciate your wonderful gift. Thank you again for making our day so special.

Sarah and Robert

I was very impressed. Steve was easy to work with. Because I am not very musically inclined, I needed some assistance picking out music. Steve was great with helping me. The group was very professional, even when I made a few last minute requests. I heard lots of positive feedback from my guests. Thanks Steve!

Candace, Lawrenceburg, TN

For our wedding Barry and I had no idea what kind of music we wanted for our wedding. I contacted Steve and he handled everything. He knew exactly what music would make our ceremony beautiful. From start to finish the music made the ceremony more memorable not only to us but our guests as well. I would recommend Steve for all your music needs.

Tracey and Barry Cox

I highly recommend SP Musical Services! In the rush of all our long distance wedding planning (we live in Baltimore, Maryland and got married in Nashville, Tennessee) we had accidentally overlooked hiring musicians for our ceremony. When I called Steve, he was very calm and professional and immediately looked into finding the perfect duo for us. I felt totally comfortable talking to him and made the decision to use his music service on the spot. His prices were quite reasonable and he found the right muscians for us, even on short notice during the busy wedding month of October. The musicians themselves were polite and professional, and the music was an exquisite touch to our outdoor ceremony. Also, I want to add -- I really appreciated Steve's helpful planning guide as far as helping with music selection and so forth. It really helped me figure out exactly what I wanted and made that aspect much simpler to plan! Thanks Steve for adding so much to our special day!
