Frets and Bows are very talented and so easy to work with. They played at my daughters wedding and did an awesome job! My daughter gave them some unusual and difficult pieces to play and they had no complaints. I would highly recommend them for any event you may be having.

I was so excited when I found fretsandbows through gigmasters. We were getting married in a very remote location and they were willing to travel to us for our ceremony. They did an amazing job and were awesome to work with!! This was a destination wedding for us so unfortunately I don't have more people to recommend them to but I will be telling the venue about them so they may be able to pass along the recommendation to any future weddings. I honestly don't think I could have possibly found anyone better than these two!

Joseph and Tracy were amazing!! They are extremely talented and easy to work with. The combination of guitar and violin was exactly what we were envisioning for our rustic but traditional outdoor ceremony. We had lots of guests make a point to tell us how much they loved the music. I HIGHLY recommend Frets and Bows!

Joseph and Tracy were so easy to work with. We hired them for our ceremony prelude and cocktail hour. They arrived at the venue extra early to set up and they were extremely nice, easygoing and professional. Unfortunately, I was whisked away to take pictures during the cocktail hour but they sounded so amazing from what I did hear and all my family and guests raved about how beautiful the music was. I would definitely hire them again.

Joseph played so beautifully at my cancer free celebration!!! All my guests were entertained by his beautiful music and professional demeanor as well as pleasantness. I would definitely hire him and even his wife, who plays professionally as a violinist, for a future event.

The music was absolutely wonderful. They are extremely talented and had a great selection of music picked out for our guests to enjoy. We didn't have any awkward pauses or changes in music and knew exactly what to do and how to time everything. They work very well as a duo and I couldn't have selected better musicians.

Joseph and his wife of Frets and Bows were a complete pleasure to have at our wedding. Not only were they professional and on-time, they were beautiful musicians with so much talent. That they offered to learn any songs we might have wanted played in addition to any traditional wedding music really made our entire day that much more special. If you're looking for a boutique and unique musical accompaniment to event, I really do feel Frets and Bows would be the perfect choice.
