We aren't your average wedding ceremony musicians. We certainly can provide classic pieces on 2 guitars if you like traditional, but what we do above and beyond is to add an extra element of uniqueness to your wedding by learning and playing your favorite song in an elegant arrangement! We love adding new pieces to our repertoire, and we are adept at adapting popular songs into beautiful instrumentals to provide music that is meaningful and special to the couple. We play a variety of stringed instruments and can add an extra element of uniqeness with mandolin, ukelele, sitar or banjo if you so desire. You can see a list of some of the songs we've performed for weddings and get an idea of the variety in our music.
We also have been working with Mark Williams on cello and can offer our services as a trio with cello, which adds an even sweeter and more beautiful sound to our 2 guitars!
Short bio: Jimmy Joe attended the Berklee College of Music and has been playing all kinds of music, including weddings, for over 25 years. Chrissie has been playing guitar for about 17 years and has added other instruments along the way. Their various skills work really well together, and they have been playing wedding ceremonies as a duo since 2008.
As a married couple, we know what it was like planning a wedding, and we go out of our way to answer your questions in a timely manner and help you plan ceremony music that will set the perfect tone for the rest of your day!

Such an amazing touch to our wedding day. Jimmy Joe went above and beyond to learn a few new songs. I definitely recommend Better Halves for any and all occasions.

Better Halves were the musicians for our son's recent wedding near Austin. We were so pleased with them in every way! They were very open to the music preferred by the bride and groom and were willing to learn some new pieces. They were excellent communicators before the wedding for every question they received from us. Their performance at the wedding, both in the ceremony and at the reception afterwards, was exceptional and beyond what we were expecting. They were also helpful and cooperative with others who were involved in the ceremony. Better Halves added a special touch and helped to make the wedding memorable and enjoyable! Our thanks go to them!
Whenever I show up to perform a wedding and see Better Halves are playing I get SO excited. I love them so much. I remember our first wedding together at the French Legation-- I had to know who they were. Such a sweet duo. I highly recommend them.
