    Fantastic musicians

    You get what you pay for, and Blue Octopus Duo did not disappoint. They were timely, professional and added a wonderful ambience to our wedding ceremony. I'd highly recommend them to anyone looking for contemporary or classical music at their wedding.

    Incredible. Unbeatable. You should definitely hire her.

    Heather could not have been more wonderful. She was easy to contact, full of ideas, flexible in timing, knew every song known to man (including the little-known song I really, really wanted and thought I definitely wouldn't get, since we were dancing the covid-shuffle and only contacted Heather about ten days before the wedding), and she played so beautifully she brought all of us to tears. I would book her for any event and would recommend her to anyone.
