Fantastic and Flexible Duo
We hired Avalanche for music for our wedding Ceremony and Cocktail Hour. They were always responsive in our communication leading up to the wedding, including their recommendations for what would or would not sound good. We made a few requests that would not have sounded great on an acoustic duo, and I appreciated that they shared that feedback directly rather than saying "okay" and then sounding terrible at the wedding. They even recorded a piece of one of our requested songs to make sure we liked it!
The other thing I have to mention about Avalanche is how flexible they are. Our Wedding Day went from sun to rain to sleet to snow, and we had been planning on both an outdoor Ceremony and Cocktail Hour. Avalanche rolled with the flow as we decided what to do, and even offered to stay later into the wedding so that we could get a full 2 hours of their music. We ultimately moved everything inside to a gorgeous space, everything went beautifully, and their music was the perfect touch for our day.
We highly recommend Avalanche!Sent on 01/03/2020

Don and Liz were amazing, and so talented. We had a small wedding and they were able to create a calm and relaxed atmosphere with their music. Our guests and anyone that walked by were extremely impressed with their sound and talent. I would recommend them for a big or small event, they were truly a wonderful part of our day.Sent on 10/05/2016

Awesome, Awesome, Awesome. Could not praise these two enough. Don and Liz did a fantastic job of responding and accommodating from day one. Responded to all e-mails and calls in a timely and professional manner. Showed up right on time when they said they would and played all of the songs we expected. We had our wedding at West Shore and the sound of their music really gave the day an amazing classic touch. Great musicians and would strongly recommend for any type of event. Thank you so much Don and Liz! Fantastic job :)Sent on 06/11/2016
We love working with Avalanche duo, they are professional and extremely talented musicians, We are lucky to have such talented musicians to play at our weddings. Thank you for the years of wonderful weddings together!
Avalanche Violin and Guitar do an amazing job at every event! They are incredibly talented musicians and always so accommodating for the guests! Their beautiful music is such a wonderful compliment to a ceremony and cocktail hour.
I have known about Avalanche Violin and Guitar for a long time, but never worked with them at a wedding until recently when I officiated a wedding at the Ritz Carlton at Lake Tahoe (Truckee), California. They were amazing. It was so nice to have live, soft, gentle music during the ceremony. I would strongly suggest that all engaged couples take a look at hiring Liz and Don for their wedding. They Make a difference!
