Dori and Andrea performed at our wedding on July 29, 2017 at The Southern Mansion in Cape May, New Jersey. They sounded great and were amazing to work with through the whole process. Dori was always easy to get in contact with, and guided us through the whole music planning process for our ceremony. We even had a little weather wrinkle in our plans, and Dori was able to make a few adjustments to make our day still go as smooth as planned. Thanks!

Cannot say enough good about Dori! She was literally amazing. She played the exact song I dreamed of and made it work. The guests loves her so much that we asked her to stay to hang out with us when she was done playing! I will be booking her again 150% she made the day perfect and is such a kind soul. Booking Dori will add entertainment to your wedding and joy to your heart:)

I hired Dorothea to play my sister's 50th birthday party this past Sunday. We were all blown away by the group. I am a professional musician myself, and had the unique opportunity and pleasure to sit in on a couple of tunes, what a joy. The song selection was perfect, the volume, structure, etc, all wonderful. They played some Celtic music so my niece could dance her Irish Dance reel. Our whole family felt as if we knew Dorothea our entire lives. Most importantly, they all made my Mother very happy. I highly recommend this act. Jim Somerset

Dorothea Z. Conlin Violin, Harp & More’s Response:

Wow Jim, I am blushing! What a boost to our days this week! It was great meeting all of your family - - - & ahem, call me "Dori" as you did :) It was indeed a great night of music, excellent food, togetherness, & dancing! Jim sat in on "The Way You Look Tonight" since his sister happens to own Jerome Kern's chair - in which he wrote the song! Super fun time playing and being with you all, whether acoustic contemporary, jazzy or Celtic tunes. SO VERY HAPPY u loved the blend & sound levels. Your family is precious & kind. Mom was happy. If Mom's happy then everybody's happy! You "done" good, son. Let's keep in touch, Charleston!! ~ TY so much! Dori, Jim, Gordon
