Corporate FunctionReviewed on August 23, 2019From Beaverton, OR

The Big North duo performed at our corporate event. They came 1 h before the party to set up everything in time which was very appreciated. The music was positive and light, Christian's voice is very beautiful. All the guests were pleased with their performance. What is more the music is suitable for all ages. I highly recommend them!

The Big North Duo:

Thanks, Anna, we enjoyed playing for you all. Drop us a line any time!

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on May 23, 2019From Government Camp, OR

The Big North Duo was so awesome to work with for our wedding. We came from out of state but Christian was always on top of email communication. We had them play during our ceremony and they were great at curating the perfect track list for our moment. They learned a new song for the end of our ceremony and it was my favorite part of the night. I would get married all over again just to have The Big North Duo play my wedding.

The Big North Duo:

We had a great time playing for you guys and your guests, thanks for having us!
