BanquetReviewed on May 23, 2012From Westminster, CO

The Barstch-DeLalla Duo was excellent! Carrie on Violin and Mike on Guitar with both doing vocals on different pieces. I can't say enough about the level of class and professionalism they brought to our event. From the planning to the actual performance, they were so eager to match the program to our musical preferences and were so flexible throughout. Definitely went above and beyond and I would highly recommend them!

WeddingReviewed on June 9, 2012From Longmont, CO

Carrie was absolutely fantastic! The ceremony music was so beautiful and just what I was looking for. She was so easy to work with, all I had to do was tell her the songs I liked and she found them and played them perfectly. We got so many compliments and I can't thank you enough for adding to our beautiful day. Thank you Carrie!!
