From Our Website

Congratulations on your engagement and welcome to our web site. Avalanche Acoustic Duo - Violin and Guitar is Lake Tahoe's premier wedding duo. We provide professional live music services specializing in weddings from Lake Tahoe to San Francisco. Our conversation friendly background music will create the perfect ambiance for your wedding. Avalanche has performed at over 800 weddings from groups of just 2 to as many as 300 guests. We have played as all of the great venues that the Truckee Tahoe area has to offer including ski resorts, hotels, private estates, beaches and churches.

As your wedding approaches, please provide details about your wedding and the music selections for your ceremony (2 processionals and recessional). Thank you for submitting this form at least one month prior to your wedding. Please contact me if you have any questions. We are looking forward to being part of your celebration! We will select appropriate music for the seating of the guests and family members before the ceremony begins. We will play selections from our Classical repertoire and we include some favorite melodies from our Broadway and Classic Rock that your guests will enjoy.

My wife and I have had the distinct pleasure of having Avalanche perform at two weddings; our own some 16 years ago (second marriage for me), and my daughter's wedding in September 2013. Our experience was so remarkably similar that my comments pertain to both events. We wanted to have smaller, less formal weddings which meant we wanted to have live music which spoke more directly to our hearts. Finding Avalanche was just what we were looking for; acoustic music performed beautifully by two classically trained pros.

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).

We are able to review the cues that we need the day of your wedding with your officiate prior to the ceremony. We often provide music during rehearsal dinners and for Sunday brunches after weddings, so please ask about our discounted fee for other wedding related events. We will arrive to setup approximately 20-30 minutes before we begin playing. You are not charged for this set up time. Our fee begins when you've requested the pre-ceremony background music for the seating of your guests. If we relocate after the ceremony to a different location our fee continues for the travel and 2nd set up.
