Thank you for your interest in Avalanche an Acoustic Duo~Violin & Guitar
I had heard Liz and Don play at the Sebastopol Farmer's Market and was mesmerized and enthralled by their music. Standing near their spot at the market, I noticed everyone from dancing two year olds to the extreme elderly, pause, smile, and so obviously enjoy listening to this very talented Violin and Guitar Duo. At times, 40 people crowded around them laughing, clapping or silently crying at the beautiful sounds as they played a tremendous variety of music, from classical to folk, rock and jazz. When my daughter chose to get married on the large outdoor patio at the Hop Monk Tavern in Sebastopol, I knew exactly who I wanted to suggest play at their wedding. Fortunately Liz and Don were available that date so we hired them on the spot. Liz and Don took care of all the details. I had seen pictures of the beautiful, formal weddings where Liz and Don had performed. My daughter wanted a forty's theme, a festive yet casual atmosphere for her wedding. When my daughter described the theme as "Like Water for Elephants meets Memphis Belle", Liz and Don knew exactly what she meant and accommodated her wishes perfectly. Liz worked directly with my daughter for the types of music and specific pieces my daughter wanted played. With sufficient notice they can cover almost any song. They also visited the venue, spoke to the manager before the event and got a feel of acoustics and possible locations to set up. They provided all their own equipment, arrived well in advance of the wedding and were prepared to play as guests started to arrive. It was perfect. The music filled in the background without drowning out any chance of conversation. Guests enjoyed listening, dancing, or conversing very easily. Liz and Don are polite, friendly and professional. They will make your wedding a stunning success.

Dear Liz and Don, Thank you for contributing to the elegant surroundings in which my daughter Sara Buckley Carson married Robert Carson. Your music reflected Sara's wish to be married in a classical manner. I'll keep the memory alive by listening to your music from afar. I recommend that all who seek a code of excellence call your number in a hurry. Sincerely, Ann Buckley

I hired Liz and Don to play at my wedding. They were absolutely fabulous. I could hear their music in the bride's room before the ceremony began. I found myself in tears because their music was so lovely. We had so many guests that raved how beautiful their music was. I could not have asked for anything better. Their music is one of the most memorable aspects of my wedding. I give Avalanche my highest recommendation. Liz and Don are talented musicians and would greatly enhance any wedding or other formal event.

We stumbled across the Avalanche Acoustic Duo by accident but very glad we did. Liz was quick to get back to us and very easy to deal with start to finish. We gave Liz and Don a list of songs we wanted played during our reception and when, then they were flawless in their execution. They even learnt a special song we requested. Their ability to play both modern and classic is rather amazing. We consider ourselves very lucky to have had Liz and Don play at our wedding and would strongly recommend them.
