About
Dear Bride or Event coordinator,

Hi, I am Geri Rizzo, flutist in the "Allegro Duo", flute and guitar. John Oelkers plays the guitar. We not only play classical music, but beloved show tunes, movie themes, classic rock and top 40 hits... It depends on your heart's desire, and I will work with you to get all the right music! For weddings, we arrive one hour early, set up, then play 1/2 prelude music.  The ceremony then starts, and we perform processionals for the Moms (if wanted); the bridal party and the bride.  If there is a unity candle service or any other during the ceremony, we play for that; then the recessionals ensue.  For the cocktail hour, we play light classical, standards, and movie themes. We provide our own amplification, and for the beach use battery operated amps. Bottom line, we sound beautiful!  Just listen...

I am primarily a classical flutist, but I can play anything by ear when I hear it as well as read music. I studied with the great flutists of the Golden Age and attended New England Conservatory of music on a full scholarship..I have played Bach to Rock, in orchestras and rock bands. John Oelkers, my guitar partner is originally from Northern NJ where he played with many popular rock bands as well as in pit orchestras. John does the arranging, and also can play anything, even classical. People really love our playing together.

I have told that I am personable, professional and very easy to deal with. You have enough to worry about! I hope to hear from you soon and make your musical dream for your event a reality!

Kind regards, Geri Rizzo, Flutist

It was the best decision of our wedding! We loved the music for our ceremony. The beauty of the flute and guitar together captured everyone's attention and made the ceremony even more beautiful. We truly appreciated everything they did, even when I was late to arrive they kept on playing. Our guests all enjoyed their performances and we felt like it was our own special concert! Thank you so much!

Gerri and Jeanmarie were terrific. They performed for outside for our ceremony, and then our cocktail inside. I spoke with Jeanmarie to co-ordinate the music for our ceremony, she was so helpful. I had no clue what I wanted them to pay, and she patiently went through various pieces in order to help me make my decision. They were wonderful and I will use them again in any future celebrations that would require such a venue.

The music was beautiful, and we LOVED the moments where she added some music to the ceremony. We thought it gave the entire thing a very magical feel. Our guests were raving about what a great touch that was. Geri and her guitarist were able to work with us to find just the right music, and I don't even have words for how talented they are. Thank you for adding to the magic of our day! - Candice and Martin

Allegro Flute and Guitar Acoustic Duo’s Response:

For the mere fact that we are excellent musicians, we deserve a 5. And not only did we both travel 2.5 hours to the gig, but the ceremony was very long. Guests were brought in by bus, which we knew nothing of in advance, nor were we notified of the unusually long ceremony. The bride's mother notified us that the cocktail hour was at a separate venue, 20 minutes away. It was 30 minutes away, and once we arrived, because the guests were bussed in, we waited 45 minutes until the guests arrived before we even began to play the cocktail hour. So our day ran from 11:30 (with travel time) to 2pm ceremony time, and we were done playing at 7pm. All that & a 4.5 rating??
