Whether you need the perfect ceremony accompanist, a relaxing cocktail hour, or a fun and upbeat dance party, Wedding Music Tahoe's Sam Ravenna has you covered. We look at the music for your wedding not just as a playlist, but as a soundtrack setting the vibe for each moment of your big day. With his deep knowledge of music and styles, your short list of songs can turn into a nights worth of dancing to songs you love. Sam understands that planning a wedding can be challenging, and aims to be the easiest part of that planning.
We are based in the Tahoe region, but are available for weddings all over nor-cal. All of our prices include travel and set up with no hidden fees.
Our specialty is combining a boutique live music experience with an epic dj’d dance party. As well as playing live, we can offer top notch MC and DJ services, keeping the night on track and, when the time comes around, throwing the best dance party of your life. We can offer DJ'd music packages only, however, our most popular packages include:
Ceremony Acoustic Guitar:
The mood of your ceremony is set from the moment your guests arrive. Perhaps you want to add a flavor of acoustic guitar, strumming your favorite love song, the elegant sound of Pachelbel's Cannon in D, or any other classic song. Included in our Acoustic Guitar for Ceremony packages, Sam and colleuges will learn 3 specific songs of your choice for your Processional, Bridal Walk, and Recessional songs. Visit our website for videos of songs specifically requested by couples, and were recorded that day at their ceremony site.
Cocktail Hour Live Music:
When you get done with your ceremony, thats when all the fun begins. Cocktail Hour music provided by Sam Ravenna and colleagues can be the perfect way to unwind from all the stress of planning a wedding and finally tying the knot. Sam can play acoustic and sing a collection of classic motown, classic rock and even modern hits, either solo, or with a small band. If you want an elegant mood provided by Tahoe's best musicians, Sam can hire a skillful jazz combo or classical pianist. Any mood can be met when working with Sam as your musical director.
The Dance party is the part of the night that couples look forward to most. Our music selections tastefully infuse your music selections and the vibe of your guests to keep everyone engaged and having fun. From swing to classic soul and rock through 80's, 90's, early 2000's and modern hits, hip hop to country, latin to rock, Wedding Music Tahoe has it all covered with a huge music library, and is able to take most requests with ease, smooth transitions and artful mixing. Using a top of the line soundsystem, disco lights to add to the flavor of the party, you can import a club atmosphere to your wedding and have everybody from kids to your grandparents and especially you, the bride and groom, dancing all night!

Sam is the Best!!
Sam made our wedding party so special and fun!! He was great at listening to our desires for the various aspects of the party and ensuring that our musical needs were met. Everything from the ceremony music, to his guitar solo for our cocktail hour, to the reception, Sam was great at keeping everything flowing and being an amazing MC. He was a pleasure to work with and all of our guests raved about what a great job he did at keeping everyone on the dance floor. We would highly recommend Sam and wouldn't hesitate to work with him again.Sent on 06/06/2021
