Phil and Joleen are exceptional musicians and consummate professionals. We LOVED their music at our daughter's wedding. I would highly recommend them.
Although we are most focused upon weddings and receptions here at Gigmasters, we often book corporate events, parties, and concerts. We are the most frequently requested duo at the Broadmoor. We have several recordings together both duet and solo. If it's beautiful fingerstyle acoustic guitar with tight vocal harmonies in the tradition of older American standards, to the music of the Beatles, James Taylor, John Denver and countless others from the 60s to the present that you seek, we are probably the perfect fit. And our ability to also perform most songs as instrumentals is a plus.
The Black Rose Newsletter music reviewer Stew Levitt describes Phil and Joleen's playing on they're instrumental CD "Carousel": "Starting with the opening harmonics of "Carousel," each guitar teases, withdraws and pursues each other like two children on an afternoon outing. This is acoustic guitar at its best." In 2002, Phil earned 2nd place at the prestigious National Fingerstyle Guitar Championship held at the Walnut Valley Festival in Winfield, Kansas. Joleen also competed years later as one of only two women, to enthusiastic listeners.
We look forward to working with you!
Phil and Joleen
