This violin-guitar duo is perfect for adding warmth, beauty and a touch of class to your wedding or special occasion! We will delight you and your guests with the finest music, and our professional and dedicated service will help to make your day stress-free. We play live and acoustic- you will always get a performance that is uniquely yours, never with backing tracks or electronic parts. You may choose from a wide variety of music- from classical to current pop, including jazz standards, show tunes, movie scores, contemporary songs, ethnic melodies, and more. We can provide you with sound reinforcement as well as music.

We are also happy to provide strolling music. We love to give an up close and personal musical experience.

All the classical wedding pieces sound beautiful on the violin with guitar accompaniment, and it's a natural and lovely musical combination for romantic ballads and other love songs as well. We can also perform beautiful vocal renditions of most songs. Whether it's a breathtaking "Ave Maria", the more contemporary Christina Perri's "1000 Years" or Train's "Marry Me", a sweet rendition of The Beatles "In My Life", a romantic standard such as "As Time Goes By" a rousing "Siman Tov U Mazel Tov"(Hebrew), we can play it or sing it, setting just the right mood on your special day.

Our fee includes meeting with you before your event as much as needed to learn about you and what you envision, and to help you select the music that best suits your unique tastes and creates the atmosphere you are dreaming of. We are glad to tailor both the music and process to your needs- we can decide together on specific pieces, or you could give us a general idea about what you want to hear and leave the specifics up to us. If there is a song you would like us to play that is not already on our list, we will learn it just for you!

Working with Daphna and Bruce was a great experience. Their professionalism prior to the event was equally as impressive as their talent and ease in working with. Would highlight recommend them for any event. They were a joy to work with!

Working with Daphna for our wedding day ceremony and cocktail hour music was a pleasure. Daphna took the time to speak with me and my fiancee about our music selection and to make recommendations prior to the wedding. She was very easy going, super friendly, and helpful. The ceremony music they played was lovely, and although I wasn't at the cocktail hour (my husband and I were having photos taken), guests reported that the music was light hearted and fun. It was not too obtrusive so that people could enjoy conversations. Overall I highly recommend Daphna!
