Brad and Lauren exceeded our expectations and made our event so memorable, we couldn't have imagined it without them. I'm glad we chose to work with them and highly recommend them to anyone, we will most certainly book them again in the future.

Brad performs on three carbon graphite acoustic electric guitars. These types of guitars are impervious to weather conditions such as temperature & humidity variations so outdoor weddings are a non issue in regards to being in tune. Of course, contingency plans should always be in place for any outdoor wedding in the event of inclement weather as noted below. Brad also performs on ukuleles, violin, penny whistle, harmonicas & keyboards as needed. Collage uses Shure mics.
COLLAGE does not need too much space but does require lighting for reading sheet music & @ least 1 grounded 3 prong AC receptacle. When performing an inside service in a church, up front or in the back, or outside... Collage has 3 different sized PA's (Mackie/JBL/Shure) depending on the event. If outside, weather should always be considered. Cover from the elements or a plan that involved moving inside in the event of inclement weather is needed. Tents often used.
Many videos of The New England acoustic vocal duo - Collage, Brad Lee performing solo acoustic guitar arrangements & as a one man band... are available online to preview.
Over the years, Collage has collectively performed @ 100's of weddings (ceremonies, cocktail hours & receptions) with various ensembles & solo & of course as Collage & the 6 piece wedding function band - Classix.
When it has to be perfect... consider Collage... you'll be glad you did.
