AMAZING!! Best decision ever!

Oh my gosh, if you have the opportunity and are thinking about booking Anya and her band, do it! They were one of our favorite parts of the whole entire wedding and our guests agreed! Anya even went out of her way and learned our first dance song, and this my truly be one of the best moments in my entire life! Anya, thank you, thank you, thank you!! 💜 -Cameron & Koreen

Couldn't have asked for a more perfect band!

Anya and her band were absolutely incredible. From our very first booking consultation, Anya was both highly professional and personable. The music was exactly what we asked for: full of lively, danceable energy but without dominating or overwhelming the room. Anya's voice was sublime and the performers were all exceptionally fluent on their instruments. It was very impressive whenever any of them played a featured solo.

There were no logistical issues at all and Anya was flexible and very cool about semi-unplanned aspects, particularly the speeches where family wanted to grab the mic for a minute or two.

Their stage presence was warm and engaging, and their passion for what they were doing was very clear: authenticity was important to us. They did not feel like a random bunch of "hired gun" wedding musicians just doing another gig. They were the real deal, sharing their art with us.

Our guests would not stop raving about the music afterwards: we received many requests for links to their streaming services so people could listen to them on the trip home.

They were such a crucial part of a perfect day and we can't recommend them enough!

Sooooo Good (listen for yourself on youtube)

We hired Tellico for our son's destination wedding weekend in Asheville, NC - couldn't have been happier with our selection. They were amazing! Anya is beyond talented and several guests (and the bride and groom) became familiar with their music before the wedding which made it more special (they also can cover any songs people already know). If you are looking for an authentic Asheville sound, you won't be disappointed. And to top it off, Anya is super super nice -- made the couple feel like she understands its the most important day of your life and she's right behind you cheering you on. 10/10.

As a wedding officiant, I have lots of experience with wedding musicians and I was quite impressed with Tellico's level of talent and professionalism. They really have that authentic bluegrass sound dialed in, plus the sound quality, levels, and dynamics were spot on. I will certainly be recommending them to all of my clients who are looking for some top-notch mountain music!
