$250 - $2000 per event
We are a husband and wife duo based in Colorado Springs performing together at ceremonies, receptions and concerts full time since 2002. We would love to create the perfect music for your wedding, reception or special event. The organic quality of our guitar duets (instrumental or vocal) played in the fingerstyle technique is perfect for ceremony prelude music. We offer many ideas for processional and recessional songs, and a really broad variety of appropriate music for a reception. We make a very full sound with just our two acoustic guitars, vocals and a banjo added here and there. We travel with a state-of-the-art small Bose PA system, and can provide sound reinforcement for the minister as well.

Although we are most focused upon weddings and receptions here at Gigmasters, we often book corporate events, parties, and concerts. We are the most frequently requested duo at the Broadmoor. We have several recordings together both duet and solo. If it's beautiful fingerstyle acoustic guitar with tight vocal harmonies in the tradition of older American standards, to the music of the Beatles, James Taylor, John Denver and countless others from the 60s to the present that you seek, we are probably the perfect fit. And our ability to also perform most songs as instrumentals is a plus.

The Black Rose Newsletter music reviewer Stew Levitt describes Phil and Joleen's playing on they're instrumental CD "Carousel": "Starting with the opening harmonics of "Carousel," each guitar teases, withdraws and pursues each other like two children on an afternoon outing. This is acoustic guitar at its best." In 2002, Phil earned 2nd place at the prestigious National Fingerstyle Guitar Championship held at the Walnut Valley Festival in Winfield, Kansas. Joleen also competed years later as one of only two women, to enthusiastic listeners.

We look forward to working with you!

It was a pleasure working with Phil and Joleen. We hired them to perform ceremony and cocktail music for our June 2015 wedding. They are incredibly talented and we couldn't be happier with their performance and professionalism. We can't recommend them highly enough!

Phil and Joleen were wonderful. They truly show a mastery of their instruments and voices. So professional, everything went so smoothly. It was beautiful and truly an honor to my Father’s memory. I couldn’t have picked a better choice for such a sensitive event. Everyone commented wonderfully on the musicians and the beautiful selections played. I will book them again, no hesitation. Thank you Phil and Joleen.
