    Incredible Talent

    We decided to marry virtually via court. It was tugging on our hearts to have a small God centered ceremony. With only a weeks notice we found this site and posted out need for a singer to provide music for our ceremony. We recieved many responses however Christina and Gene really stuck out. From the 1st contact they took the time to thank us, congratulate us and provide us with all the information needed. Even, when we had questions after our initial contact they answered every one professionally and gave us peace and assurance. There was nervousness over booking a performer without meeting them in person but Christina sent over videos of performances and their voices blew us away. The song requested was not on their playlist but they took the short time given to learn it. I walked down the isle to the rest of our lives to the most beautiful voices serenading us. After the ceremony they stayed to play for our guests. We can not count how many people asked where we found them and how amazing they sound. On top of their talent they are genuinely nice people who you just want to stay and join the party. I love them!!! I can not express how happy I am to have hired them. Thank You Christina and Gene for being attentive, flexible, inprovising, professional and for helping us make our wedding so memorable. We love and appreciate you!!! Hire them they are high quality pure talent!!!
    Thank You,
    Casey and Veronica

    Impeccably Talented

    Christina LaRocca is a wildly talented musician and vocalist. I had an amazing wedding at an upscale venue, but the first thing that people tell me when they approach me is, wow, what an amazing singer that girl was... I want her for my wedding! Her vocal stylings will be what makes your wedding a memorable and unforgettable event. I highly recommend this professional and talented woman!!
