Helen and David were absolutely wonderful to work with. They played for my grandmother's 100th birthday celebration and both are very talented musicians and vocalists. They are very pleasant to work with and accommodated my large family's request and needs. I highly recommend them.

Helen and Dave were a fantastic addition to our company holiday party. They were easy to communicate and work with, reasonably priced, played exceptionally well and the music selection was a pleasant mix of modern and classical songs. Our staff complimented the choice of musicians during and after the party was done.

Helen was amazing! She is a champion for a reason. She brought a second guitarist and together they made sweet musical magic. They played a mix of familiar and new songs and were very lovely people in general. She is very accommodating and you will not be disappointed booking her.

Helen was so great to work with and was very accomodating to our needs. She showed up on time and set up in a timely manner. She even was willing to work with me to prepare some special material for our event! Her music was AWESOME! She is a very gifted guitar player and singer! Not only is her talent amazing but she was a huge hit with our crowd and everyone loved the song selection! I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs music for an event. You will not be disappointed!

Helen was a perfect fit our our opening reception for our new art exhibition. We had lots of great feedback from our guests for her performance. She was easy to work with and great to work with. Would definitely have her come back for a future event at the museum.

Helen was great! She had plenty of communication leading up to our ceremony to make sure she knew any special requests, and even learned to sing a song for our service that she didn't already have in her repertoire. She arrived at the venue 2 hours prior to the event and was already set up before we arrived. Everything sounded great and the performance was wonderful. I wished I had a recording of all the songs she played since I was only able to hear her rehearsing during photos, and as I was walking people in. She also brought an additional musician to help round out her sound at no extra cost, and wanted to make sure that was OK. Thanks Helen!

We worked with Helen's partner, Dave, for our wedding ceremony on 10/14/17. He did an amazing job! He was super accomodating to any songs that I chose and gave ideas as well. He did a fantastic job at our ceremony and we received so many compliments on what an awesome job he did. We would definitely recommend him!

If I could give more than 5's I would. She literally saved my wedding. I had musicians drop out two weeks before my ceremony and in a desperate attempt I messaged Helen. Not only did she respond right away to every email, but she was so helpful and even supplied a second guitarist. I didn't hear them until my rehearsal and I was blown away. I was so glad that my circumstances led me to her and I would hire her again in a heart beat. Talented, helpful, responsive, super nice, professional... she went above and beyond. My ceremony was beyond perfect! Hire her and you won't stress on your wedding day. 10 stars!

Thank you so very much for the amazing review Bridget! It was a pleasure and honor for Dave and me to perform at your wedding, and we are so glad we could help you after your other musician fell through at the last minute. We too are grateful that circumstances put us together. Warm and Best Wishes, Helen

I contracted with Helen to play for the ceremony of my out-of-state wedding. She communicated promptly, had lots of options and good suggestions for me and provided recordings of some of her pieces. She played beautifully for my garden wedding and I couldn't have been happier. I only wish I would have had her stay a little longer to play for the reception so I could have enjoyed more of her music. She was a delight to work with and a lovely woman.

Helen and Dave were absolutely incredible and added a very special musical touch to our wedding day. Helen was quick to respond to emails, and she was so accommodating. She communicated wonderfully, and all the songs we requested were played beautifully. She has an incredible voice, and she and her partner, Dave, truly made our wedding day so special. You will not be disappointed having Helen play for your special day.

Helen Avakian's partner Dave Irwin was our acoustic guitarist who performed at our wedding event. Helen was performing in New York I believe so Dave played at our event. My husband and I were so incredibly pleased with Dave on all levels. He provided us with several song options. With days prior to our event we requested two songs he wasn't entirely familiar with but he mastered them in a matter of days and played them beautifully. He is very personable and professional. We received several complements from our guests about the music. We are very satisfied with Dave's work and would highly recommend him to everyone for any kind of event!
