The Rockford Symphony Orchestra hired Brassworks to perform at its annual fundraising gala. Mark Olen is a remarkable person, an excellent musician, and a consummate professional. He was very prompt in responding to any inquiries we had, and flexible in programming. My organizing committee members have heaped praise upon me for my good taste in selecting Brassworks. Dozens of attendees commented on how much they enjoyed the music at our event. The musicians were spirited and engaging. I would not hesitate to hire Mr. Olen again. Anything he says he can do, he will do well. Overall, an A+.Apr 24, 2018
I hired Mark Olen and the Brassworks Music Productions for our Chicago revival of the play Side Man. He played a short set before our curtain and audience members were thrilled to experience the incredible live music. He is the consummate professional and true jazz artist. I highly recommend Mark and will most certainly use him in the future.May 25, 2015
Mark Olen communicated with us diligently, responding always to our emails, and he and his group were completely capable fulfilling our requests! He was punctual. His musicianship is superlative, a joy to listen to! Jazz standards, ballads, etc. He learned a few new songs that we requested! My friends told me how pleasant his music was and I agreed! It was a completely amazing performance! I would highly recommend Brassworks Music Productions!Sep 19, 2019
