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!

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!!

Carrieā€™s performance was nothing but exquisite. She provided me with unlimited consultations prior to and during the event. She had a surprisingly large and comprehensive repertoire and showed immediate versatility. She is the truest, most thorough, most talented and the kindest professional I have ever met, bar none.

They really are wonderful. James was there a couple hours early to set everything up. My only complaint is that Carrie showed up just as I was ready to walk down the isle. Apparently she went to the wrong place. Like I said, besides that, everything else was terrific and our guests as well as us loved them!

She worked really well for us. Lots of communications and recommendations on songs and even worked to find some more obscure music for us. The ceremony went perfectly and they were right on queue with music. Would highly recommend her to anybody.

Carrie was wonderful. She made the party a great success! I have received hand written notes from guests about how much they all enjoyed her music. I would plan another party just to have her come and play!

We didn't get to hear Carrie's music as much as we wanted because we were so busy being the bride and groom all night, but our guests said she played beautifully! They really enjoyed the Beatles music:)

Carrie was awesome throughout all the pre-wedding planing, and hit exactly the feeling we were going for. She was able to accommodate all our quirky and contemporary song requests and performed them beautifully! The guests had nothing but great comments as well. If you're looking for someone who can play it ALL, and then some, give Carrie a shout!
