As a Wedding Planner, I am often looking for Vendor who have 3 main qualities:
- Love and are good at what they do.
- Are great communicators with myself and my clients.
- Are great and kind people.
I can safely say that the Dearing Concert Duo meets all of these requirements and more!
It was an absolute pleasure working with them at my clients' 12/03/2016 Wedding...and I look forward to working more with them at other events in the future!

I really don't know where to begin this review as I have had the pleasure of knowing Abha since I was 13 years old. She was my choir teacher and choral director freshman-senior year of high school. But she wasn't just a teacher or a choral director, she was a mentor and a friend and an excellent example of a strong, graceful, intelligent woman. I took her critiques and compliments to heart and saved them to my memory. I was blessed to have her during a awkward and sometimes troubling time in my life. So, it was an easy and exciting decision to hire she and her husband to sing at our wedding. Throughout the process she was incredibly helpful in choosing songs (I was clueless) and professional as can be! Their performance during my ceremony had even my oh-so-macho husband choking up and my family and friends awe-struck. I was in my bridal room before the ceremony and asked my bridesmaid to take a moment to all listen to her as we waited for our turns to walk down the aisle. I am so happy to know them both and lucky to have had them perform at my wedding. 5 stars is just not enough.

As a music lover I was determined to find a way to incorporate live music into our wedding, Steve and his wife Abha were a great way to do so. Using the ideas we had for our ceremony and their own creativity, they were able to make something for us that was unique and set our wedding apart from others. The ceremony ran like clock work and I really appreciate everything they did for us, I highly recommend both of their talents to anyone. Totally worth the money and I can't wait to see what they do for you!

I first met the Dearing Due several years ago at a wedding I was officiating. They played beautifully and were so great to work with that since that time I have referred them to many of my couples who were considering live music...which is the best, by the way! They are true artists who play beautiful music and, as an added plus, Abba has the voice of an angel! I highly recommend them...highly!

I have had the pleasure of knowing Abha and Steve for more years then I can remember. I am sure I have been referring their outstanding talent to brides for over 20 years. They give a personal touch and a memorable performance. I highly recommend couples to check them out if they are considering live entertainment for their big day! - Natalie Brewer
