Danielle and Mike were great at our wedding. Danielle corresponded with me often and accommodated our special requests. She even worked with me on finding the perfect arrangement for my song to walk down the aisle. She sent me samples of different arrangements and talked to me about my preferences to find what worked. She's a real professional and her opinions were very valuable. Everyone also enjoyed the selections at the reception and had a great time.

Daniele was wonderful to work with and her mandolin partner was as accomplished as she. They met all of our needs and played a wide variety of music, plus some special requests. Our pre-ceremony meeting covered everything from start to finish. Their performance helped make the day even more special. Their price was very affordable and their repetoire was vast. I would highly recommend them for any function.
