Lake Tahoe is an incredible place for a wedding, and there is no better way to compliment the beautiful scenery than with exceptional music. 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. 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.
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!

Perfect at setting a tone!
My fiance and I saw Sam perform live and loved his style. He's a great MC and kept the night flowing smoothly. I appreciated that he listened to the order of events we wanted, and kept an eye on the crowd to gauge the best timing of events. He worked with us to tweak and extend songs for the ceremony, performed live at our cocktail hour, and brought in a trumpet player for our entrance and our first dance. He was very interested from the beginning to learn our style, and absolutely delivered during the night. The dance floor was packed all night, which is saying a lot when you consider that our guest list was made up of a lot of different groups that didn't know each other but ended up dancing together. He was easy to work with, and we'd absolutely recommend him for any event.Sent on 12/01/2019

Best music for the wedding!
Sam was very easy to work with and made sure everything with the music was perfect! He even learned a song last minute for me to walk down the aisle to. His service was very professional and made it very stress free. Everyone was dancing all night!Sent on 11/10/2019

Firstly, THANK YOU Sam for exceeding our wedding music expectations! I came across Wedding Music Tahoe when researching DJ’s for our wedding in the Tahoe area. Same was incredibly responsive communicating over the phone and via email. He took all of our requests and provided excellent DJ services for our wedding.
