FoxDuo + Vineyard = Magical!

We wanted to sincerely thank Liam & Fox Duo for their beautiful music at our recent wedding at Ravine Winery this past weekend. Their style and presence complimented the vibe so well. We got great feedback from our guests about the quality and special touch it added for our ceremony and cocktail hour. We appreciated the ease and professionalism throughout the planning process and would highly recommended their talents to any event, certainly not just weddings. We would love to work with them in the future.
Many thanks, Marco & Amanda

Extremely talented, friendly and met every song request!

We were so pleased with the performance by The Fox Music at our wedding. They are extremely talented, friendly and very open to customized music requests! We got to choose every song we wanted playing from their repertoire and even added a few personalized selections of our own. They met our very special request of having melodies from The Legend of Zelda play during the ceremony! It was like a dream come true! We received numerous compliments and couldn’t be happier with their wonderful performance at our wedding! Highly recommended The Fox Music if your looking to get creative with the live music at your wedding!

Amazing Duo for our Wedding Ceremony!

It was incredible to work with The Fox Duo and we loved having them perform at our wedding ceremony. They are so talented, professional, and accommodating. They have such an extensive list of songs in their repertoire and it was so fun to go through them and pick songs for the different aspects of our ceremony. They take special requests, and I requested my favourite song for my bridal processional and they played it so beautifully! It was so incredibly special. I had also seen on their YouTube channel that they had a cover of “All I Want for Christmas is You” and it was so fun to have that as our recessional song for our Christmas themed wedding!
They were so easy to communicate with and I really appreciate their time answering all of my questions. They did such a great job during our ceremony timing all of our songs to each moment, every transition was so seamless. We’re so fortunate that we could have Liam and Zach perform at our ceremony! I highly recommend them!

Best duo for your wedding!

Liam and Zach are absolutely amazing musicians and had come highly recommended by our dj when we were looking for live music for the ceremony We had them provide our ceremony and cocktail hour music. They have an amazing range of music from classical to contemporary so there is definitely something to meet every mood. We had so many comments from our guests how much they love the music and couldn’t believe the rendition of Green Day’s Good Riddance that was our recessional song I would highly recommend The Fox Duo for your wedding!

Talented, kind and genuinely wonderful to work with!

There are not enough words to express the joy I experienced working with The Fox Duo. They were actually the first vendors I booked for my wedding! I was so excited to have found such a talented group of artists as they provided exactly what I was looking for. Everything they had promised for the day was delivered, and then some. Liam was amazing to work with from start to finish. Not only are they some of the most talented musicians I have listened to, but genuinely the sweetest people to work with. Their unique repertoire of music certainly set the scene for our ceremony and cocktail hour. Guests at the wedding are still messaging us about how much they enjoyed the music! Thank you again for such a lovely day - Julia and Eric

Amazing Musicians and Experience

The Fox Duo played for my wedding ceremony. These two talented musicians completely nailed it! Their beautiful renditions of our tailored song choices completely made the ceremony. It was a treat for the ears and made one happy couple.

These musicians are very professional, punctual, and a MUST for your wedding. Trust me.

Thanks all!

Fox Duo (piano + violin) are A+

Of all the details that we felt were important to our wedding ceremony, the one thing that made the biggest impact on us and on our guests was having the Fox Duo perform. Liam and Aaron are the real deal -- highly-skilled musicians and just all around great people who took the time to understand exactly how we wanted the day to go. They even learned a special song that was really important to us and played it perfectly. These guys hit all the boxes for us: professional, friendly, understanding and talented. If you want your wedding ceremony to be extra special, you need the Fox Duo there.
