Amazing Musicians

Do not hesitate to book Solatido!! They are absolutely fantastic musicians that have so much energy and joy in their work and just radiate all the positivity you want on your wedding day! They played a huge variety of music that every age of guest could recognize and sing along too and matched the energy of the ceremony, cocktail hour and dinner perfectly. They were even kind enough to transpose the sheet music for a song we loved that was not yet available for violin!! They took our wedding day to the next level and it would not have been the same without them. We received more compliments for the music than any other part of the day!! They deserve every bit of praise! Thank you Solatido!!

Fantastic musicians and entertainers!

Solatido was one of the best investments we made for our wedding day last week. They were easy to coordinate with, went above and beyond in many ways (learning one of our custom song requests despite no sheet music existing for it, helping out with tech issues unrelated to them day of, etc), and were absolutely excellent. Our ceremony music was absolutely beautiful and they got the party started right afterwards. Worth every penny - amazing value! Thank you guys!!!

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!
