    Talented and Lively Band

    We first heard Brian and Sara of FarAway when they were playing a local concert at Carter Mountain. We loved their sound and style and sent them a message asking if they would be interested in playing our wedding. They promptly responded and met with us to discuss how they play weddings and helped us plan our reception. They are very experienced and made many great suggestions for our reception. They gave us a list of songs they can play which was many and varied, giving us a wonderful selection to choose. Since we had a smaller wedding we were worried about participation on the dance floor and keeping everyone having fun. With Brian and Sara we had nothing to worry about. They were able to read the dance floor perfectly and even got our grandmas up and dancing. All of our guests asked us how we found them, and were thrilled with the music. We couldn’t recommend FarAway any higher. From the first meeting, through the wedding they were extremely helpful and a joy to work with. Not only are they very talented, they are also some of the nicest people we’ve meet.

    Sincerely,

    Laura & John

    Made for a magical wedding!

    FarAway. When planning our wedding, my wife and I wanted a sound that had a lot of heart and warmth. We knew we wouldn’t be able to get that from a deejay so we started looking for a coffeehouse acoustic sound which led us to Brian and Sara. They were extremely personable, responsive and went above and beyond for us. When we told them we wanted to do a medley that hadn’t been done before for our first dance and a song that wasn’t on their playlist for our last dance, they were able to accommodate us. In addition to that, they provided helpful suggestions that made the wedding reception move a lot more smoothly.

    On the day of, we were blown away by how beautiful the music was. It was the perfect volume so the guests weren’t forced to yell at each other to have a conversation. Our wedding was already wonderful buy FarAway was able to raise it to another level. We cannot recommend highly enough.
