Wedding CeremonyReviewed on March 10, 2019From San Francisco, CA

Lara was amazing and so hopefully to us our newlyweds!!! She was very familiar with the venue and provided flawless input to make our ceremony one of the most special moments!!! The music was present but not overbearing. It set an amazing tone for the ceremony! Will recommend to family and friends without a doubt!

Christmas PartyReviewed on December 18, 2010From Los Angeles, CA

Despite the horrible weather, they persevered to get down to LA from San Francisco and with a smile or two! They performed outstandingly and were extremely pleasant (I especially worked with Lara) to deal with. Highly professional and talented. I would recommend them without reservation and the music was so wonderful - - my 85 guests can't stop raving about Celtic Sands.

WeddingReviewed on July 27, 2008From Lodi, CA

Hiring Celtic Sands for our wedding was one of the best things we did! We absolutely loved them in every way. They were so sweet and excited for us and all of our music ideas. They were very helpful and never said no to anything. They were patient and very punctual with everything. If we ever have another big event in California we would hire them in a heartbeat. We will recommend them to every one we know. What I love most about their music is not just the talented playing but the love and commitment they put into their songs and furthermore - into our wedding.

FuneralReviewed on April 2, 2009From Los Gatos, CA

Celtic Sands played at the reception for my dad's memorial service. Their music was fabulous and extremely appropriate for the event. Towards the end, the people attending the reception liked them so much that they got Celtic Sands playing more up tempo irish music...it was wonderful. They were professional, talented and very accomodating. Use them, they are great!

WeddingReviewed on May 24, 2009From Pleasant Hill, CA

Everyone enjoyed the music! People kept coming up to me and asking where I found this duo, as they were so good. They played classical before the wedding ceremony, and then a variety of classical and Irish folk music during the dinner hour. We booked only two of the musicians, but they brought many instruments to play, giving a variety of music and sound. I recommend them to anyone.

WeddingReviewed on May 24, 2014From San Jose, CA

My husband and I decided to celebrate our heritage, getting married in an outdoor setting in our respective clan kilts. As guests arrived, they were welcomed by Celtic Sands for our appetizer reception. The song selection and musical talent of these three musicians created an atmosphere of old world celebration. Guests commented on what a wonderful surprise it was to arrive to such wonderful music and a sense of festivity. The first impression of our entire wedding for our guests was Celtic Sands. However,long after the last note was played, the guests were still talking about this impressive troupe well into the night.

They were great. I highly recommend Celtic Sands. Their sound is so fantastic and they are so professional. I think without them, it wouldn't have had the same special feel. Many thanks to you guys. You're amazing musicians.

WeddingReviewed on October 5, 2008From Woodside, CA

Celtic Sands was a pleasure to work with for our wedding! They were the most professional and easy to work with vendor in the whole wedding planning experience. Not only were they very accommodating but they offered advice and tips to make our event run smoothly. The music was fabulous and we had many compliments from our guests on how their music made our event special.

This group is superb and the harp playing is spell-binding. They also played everything we requested. What a talented and fun group of musicians. I would whole-heartedly recommend Celtic Sands to anyone who needs musicians for an event.

WeddingReviewed on September 6, 2008From Mill Valley, CA

As the Bride I wasn't able to enjoy the Celtic Sands Music during the ceremony or Cocktail hour, but EVERYONE raved about how beautiful they sounded! During the ceremony, I thought it would be a great Idea to sing my vows to my husband, but with my nerves shot to hell, I couldn't even hold a tune, one of the celtic sands nicely picked up my key, and played a little background for me- I REALLY appreciated that! as for my singing :) not much they could do about that! During the cocktail hour they offered to stay later if needed, the music was lively and fun, was perfect for our Irish family from Ireland- made them feel right at home. THanks Celtic Sands!

WeddingReviewed on October 27, 2007From Walnut Creek, CA

We had the pleasure of Celtic Sands performing at our daughter's wedding this past Saturday. They were delightful! The trio performed many beautiful Irish songs as well as the more traditional fare. They even led us in some group singing of Molly Malone, All For Me Grog, etc.! We got so many compliments on them from the Irish and Non-Irish family. They really added to this very special day. We will definitely invite them back for future gigs! Thank-you!!
