Martin Brasfield
(misc regional and local-all states, Mississippi)

Email : 

Phone : 334-260-0407


I began my career in the music business booking and managing a band in the mid-80's. While doing so, I helped start and operate two successful Montgomery, Alabama based companies before deciding to devote my full time to booking bands. I incorporated Music Garden in 1993, and concentrated on providing the best party and dance bands for public and private shows throughout the southeastern region of the United States. Since then, Music Garden has grown to include over fourteen representatives and an office staff who share my dedication to that goal and book some of the best regional and national acts in the nation!


What makes me the happiest are the long-term relationships I build with customers over the years. To have a young person ask me to provide entertainment for high school functions, call me to book bands and DJ's for all of their social needs during college, and then continue to book their wedding and private parties in the years after graduation, gives me a joy that is hard to express in words. It makes me proud to see each member of the Music Garden staff building the same kind of relationships.


While I always believed that I had the best staff and the best bands available, my belief was verified recently by a well-known band manager who told me "Music Garden has the best staff of agents around."

Dobbins Cosby is responsible for a number of southeastern territories - including Auburn and Troy, Alabama, Athens and Columbus, Georgia to name a few. Dobbins is originally from Selma, Alabama graduating from Morgan Academy and then Auburn University. He currently resides in Auburn, Alabama. Dobbins prides himself in knowing each band and developing a thorough understanding of what a buyer wants before he pitches a band to them. "I listen to feedback from the buyer. Feedback is the one tool that has helped me take care of clients more than anything."

"My family was blessed and overwhelmed at the same time when my sister and I decided to get married 5 months apart. We both wanted our days to be perfect and memorable from start to finish. I met Dobbins through some mutual friends and my family began working with him to find the perfect bands for our 2 big days. Dobbins helped us to sort through bands and narrow it down to a few that we liked in order to make a decision. We had lots of questions about the band details and where they had played before and my dad wanted to make sure that they were reputable and would be professional in a Country Club setting. Dobbins always made time for all of our questions and even arranged for us to meet the band ahead of time and hear them play at a local venue. My sister and I ended up picking the same band and Dobbins worked with our family for 11 months through the 2 events. He was so easy to work with and made the band one of the best parts of the entire wedding experience. Our band put on 2 equally spectacular performances and we got rave reviews from our guest who couldn't wait to hear the band again at my wedding, which was second. I have recommended Dobbins to everyone I know and wouldn't want to work with anyone else. Dobbins has the "hook up" to the best bands in the business and has great relationships with all of them. He works quickly and doesn't pressure you at all to pick a band, just helps you through the process that can be very overwhelming because of all the choices our there. Dobbins has a great personality and really cared about us having the best band and the best experience. I would recommend Dobbins to anyone looking for a band whether it is for a wedding or special event, he is your guy!" - Kristi Dumas
