    Highlight of our wedding for our guests!

    We booked Solatido for our wedding this September and they were amazing! Their music was a highlight for our guests who all raved about them and most guests commented on how much they enjoyed the music at one point or another and were sad when they had to leave! We asked for an uncommon song for the bride's processional only a few days before the wedding and they were able to do so with no problem and it sounded amazing. Josh and Steven were prompt, professional, and courteous. The day whizzed by and we barely had time to connect with vendors but Solatido were wonderful and the music was fantastic!

    You'll forget about your sweat when you start crying

    Our wedding ceremony was outdoors, and my husband was sweating, but as soon as he heard Solatido play, he started crying instead because of how beautiful and perfect it was.

    We hired them for our wedding because we saw them performing at the wedding fair. At first, we weren't sure if we should've hired them because it was way out of our budget. But we are SO HAPPY we did! We requested songs for our wedding ceremony, and they learned them in less than 2 weeks! It's insane. They played them beautifully too. We were impressed WOW! The pieces were exactly how we wanted them. And as I said earlier, my husband sweats easily, but he soon forgot it once he started crying to the music. SO beautiful!!! wow!

    For our dinner reception, they were so entertaining, and they took the time and effort to go to each table to play their instruments right in front of them. They are so hardworking and weren't even asking for breaks. We saw how hard they were working and we suggested they take some time off to eat and rest. These guys are SO talented and we are so happy we hired them. :) If you are not sure because of a tight budget or for any other reason, trust me, they're SO worth it! You won't regret it :) Thank you Josh and team for creating the perfect ambiance for the most special day of our lives. You guys are the bomb!!!!!!!!!!!

    August 2019 Wedding

    Solatido played for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour - they were on time, professional, and sounded amazing! They knew our requested songs perfectly and the music was so beautiful, it really set the perfect atmosphere for our wedding. Our guests were so impressed, especially my dad who gave them a shout out in his speech during the reception! Thank you so much, I keep watching a clip of my bridal processional so I can keep hearing the song!

    We loved Solatido

    We couldn't have asked for a better duo to play at our outdoor wedding ceremony. They even collaborated with a singer that we provided and it turned out very nice. We highly recommend Solatido to other couples.

    Solatido Review for June2018 wedding

    We hired Solatido for our June 2018 wedding and we are so glad we did. They were easily one of my favorite parts of the whole wedding. They were easy to work with, could play any song requested and were an absolute hit with all our guests. I would reccomend Solatido to anyone and everyone. They were professional and most of all amazing musaicians. Wedding would not have been the same without them!
