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. Regards, Andrew & Tiffany (Melbourne, Australia)

I am so delighted to write a review for Avalanche! I first heard their uplifting music when they were performing locally. I knew they could add so much joy to our upcoming wedding celebration. I just didn't know how much!! I bought their CDs and then listened to so much of their music samples online as well. Avalanche offers music from so many genres. They play everything from classics to contemporary! After contacting them to arrange our wedding play date, they even learned a new song just for our asking and choice needs. The planning and details were simple. As a very professional musical duo, they had very few needs which allowed us to focus on other sweet details of our evening. On the eve of our wedding, they arrived like humble sweet guests and then quickly transformed the entire evening with their musical talent! At one point my new bride and I took a short walk outside our venue just to listen to how perfect the evening was going and how sweet the music. The musical talents of these two brought tears, laughter and dancing to our most special day ever! Thank you Liz and Don

When I first started looking into ceremony music, I thought that having live string musicians would be astronomical in cost. I was pleasantly surprised to find Liz and Don to be affordable. Making contact was simple, and the responses were always fast and professional. I wanted musicians to reflect our distinct taste in music, and did they ever deliver. My only regret was not actually having the time to meet with them and listen to more of their music. All of my guests have not stopped raving about the music choices. Thank You Liz and Don, it was an honor to have you play for our ceremony and cocktail hour. I highly recommend this duo, they are splendid.

My wife and I have had the distinct pleasure of having Avalanche perform at two weddings; our own some 16 years ago (second marriage for me), and my daughter's wedding in September 2013. Our experience was so remarkably similar that my comments pertain to both events. We wanted to have smaller, less formal weddings which meant we wanted to have live music which spoke more directly to our hearts. Finding Avalanche was just what we were looking for; acoustic music performed beautifully by two classically trained pros. Their music is so well balanced between an accomplished guitarist and a virtuoso violinist that it transported our experience to a completely higher level. Each guest that attended remarked on how the music MADE the event. Avalanche advertises their music as "conversation friendly", but we found a much more direct connection between our guests and the music. In fact, people lingered at our weddings longer than we had expected largely because of the music. At our first wedding my uncle, who was then quite advanced in age, pulled up a chair and just broadly smiled throughout the performance. I had never seen him so happy. We found the fees Avalanche charged were more than reasonable. In addition, Liz made sure to check with the Bride and Groom to see what their tastes in music were, and then compiled a custom playlist just for them. In my daughter's case she loves the Beatles, and so they interspersed Beatles tunes generously throughout the day. Liz also consulted with the Minister and made sure their music came in right on cue throughout the ceremony. Avalanche provided not just music, they constructed the most beautiful and perfect soundtrack for one of the most important days of our lives.
