Live music is best! We are available in many configurations, from a soloist to a big band. We are committed to providing the music you want, whether that is a polka band, old-time rock 'n roll, the precision of a string quartet, low-down blues, the big band sound, or the quiet and soothing strains of the Celtic harp. We tailor the tune list to your specifications, and take the time to get to know you and your preferences.
The Bellafina Ensemble offers the classical configuration of two violins, viola and cello, but we are also available as a duet or a trio. Want to add a trumpet, for fanfares and a beautiful rendition of "What a Wonderful World?" No problem!
Calamity Jazz Band is comprised of trumpet, reeds, trombone, bass, drums, banjo and piano, or any combination of those instruments. Several of our musicians are also stellar vocalists. Visit the band's website for more details.
Meg and the JJs: Master guitarist Jesse Johnson, joined by bass, drums, and Meg on flute, piano, and/or saxophone. Latin jazz, the top hits of the 40s through the 70s, and beyond, the rock 'n roll that changed the world... ideal for background music, dancing, or both.
The Polka Dots: polka band! Accordion and tuba, with other instruments added if you wish, playing polkas, schottisches, waltzes, hambos, varsuviennes, and all manner of musical selections from Scandinavia, Germany, Austria, and other European countries.
If you want a soloist, Meg will play piano, Celtic harp, accordion, flute, violin, saxophone, clarinet, hammered dulcimer...
All of the music we play is appropriate for persons of all ages, and is presented according to your specifications. If you need for the music to be all acoustic, or soft background music, or if you want a soloist for the ceremony and an ensemble for the reception, we'll discuss your plans and wishes in detail, and the process will be pleasant and stress-free!
The music you hear on one of the most important days of your life should be memorable and meaningful. Let us play the music for you!
It was truly a pleasure for me and all of the guests to hear such beautiful music in the gardens. I couldn't have dreamed of a more lovely wedding day, and am so grateful to you and the rest of your ensemble for helping make that happen!!
I will certainly keep your performance near and dear in my heart, I will gladly recommend your services to anybody looking for string music.
Thanks again and have a lovely day!
