• Dear Liz and Don,

    Thank you for contributing to the elegant surroundings in which my daughter
    Sara Buckley Carson married Robert Carson. Your music reflected Sara's wish
    to be married in a classical manner. I'll keep the memory alive by listening
    to your music from afar. I recommend that all who seek a code of excellence
    call your number in a hurry.

  • I had heard Liz and Don play at the Sebastopol Farmer's Market and was
    mesmerized and enthralled by their music. Standing near their spot at the
    market, I noticed everyone from dancing two year olds to the extreme elderly,
    pause, smile, and so obviously enjoy listening to this very talented Violin
    and Guitar Duo. At times, 40 people crowded around them laughing, clapping or
    silently crying at the beautiful sounds as they played a tremendous variety
    of music, from classical to folk, rock and jazz.

    When my daughter chose to get married on the large outdoor patio at the Hop
    Monk Tavern in Sebastopol, I knew exactly who I wanted to suggest play at
    their wedding. Fortunately Liz and Don were available that date so we hired
    them on the spot. Liz and Don took care of all the details.

    I had seen pictures of the beautiful, formal weddings where Liz and Don had
    performed. My daughter wanted a forty's theme, a festive yet casual
    atmosphere for her wedding. When my daughter described the theme as "Like
    Water for Elephants meets Memphis Belle", Liz and Don knew exactly what she
    meant and accommodated her wishes perfectly. Liz worked directly with my
    daughter for the types of music and specific pieces my daughter wanted
    played. With sufficient notice they can cover almost any song.

    They also visited the venue, spoke to the manager before the event and got a
    feel of acoustics and possible locations to set up. They provided all their
    own equipment, arrived well in advance of the wedding and were prepared to
    play as guests started to arrive. It was perfect. The music filled in the
    background without drowning out any chance of conversation. Guests enjoyed
    listening, dancing, or conversing very easily. Liz and Don are polite,
    friendly and professional. They will make your wedding a stunning success.

  • Liz and Don played at our wedding last summer. They were by far my favorite part of our wedding. They even learned two new songs for our ceremony, and played them perfect! They are easy to work with and so professional. I would recommend them to anyone who needs music for their wedding, they are so talented. Thanks for makeing our wedding so memorable.

  • Liz & Don were great!! They were super easy to work with, easily accommodating any request. Their sound was classic but also upbeat. It was wonderful to listen to them as we were preparing for the ceremony as well as the cocktail hour after. We would highly recommend them to any couple for wedding music.

  • One of our vendors suggested Avalanche Acoustic Duo. I visited their site and fell in love with the sound samples on their website. The live version on our wedding day did not disappoint! How easy it was to work with Liz and prepare selections for our day was icing on the cake! Admittedly I could not enjoy all of their music during the guests arrival and cocktail hour, but all our guests had only great things to say about them. We're super happy to have chosen Avalanche. The live music during the ceremony made it so special and all the more moving. We would recommend them for anyone.

  • Liz and Don are truly a breeze to work with. They were super flexible with our questions and did a lot of research for unique song requests. We loved having them play before, during and after our wedding ceremony. They definitely added a sweet and romantic element to the day. We had many guests comment on how unexpected it was to have live musicians and how much they enjoyed the music selections played (we were only responsible for choosing official entrance and exit music and left the rest of the choices up to the Duo). I cannot recommend Liz and Don highly enough.
