    Highlight of our reception, Very talented musicians

    Lindsay and Jordan were a highlight of our wedding reception. They are very talented musicians and can play many different types of music. Our wedding was held at a camp in central Mass and we wanted a folk acoustic feel, which they can play perfectly. Lindsay and Jordan learned our favorite song for our first dance, and had everyone in tears for when we danced with our dads. She was so helpful in recommending songs for specific moments of our wedding and very accommodating and flexible when setting timelines for our day. From the beginning Lindsay was very professional and quick to respond to emails. One thing we were most impressed with was her ability to get to know us and what we wanted for music on our wedding day. They played a good balance of crowd favorites and their original songs, which gave our reception a unique and personal touch. They were naturals at feeling out the vibe of our venue/guests and setting the tone that we wanted. Lindsay and Jordan were a perfect fit for our reception and we are so happy to have booked them. The music was unique and loved by all of our guests. People were up dancing and sitting, enjoying the lovely music.

    As a same-sex couple, Lindsay and Jordan were a safe and comfortable option for us.

    amazing ceremony musician!

    Lindsay played guitar & sang for our ceremony, and she was truly phenomenal. We weren't sure what we were going to do about music for our ceremony, but when I came across samples of Lindsay's music online, I knew that we wanted her! She has a huge variety of songs available to choose from, including so many songs that we love. (She will learn one that you request, if you're looking for something that she doesn't already know.) Lindsay was so easy to work with, responsive, and professional; we really knew we were in good hands. The only downside is that, as the bride, I didn't get to hear any of the music before the ceremony! But I heard from so many guests about how great she was and how much they enjoyed the music before and during the ceremony. Can't recommend highly enough!
