The Carpe Sono team was great to work with setting up a surprise serenade for my wife. The tunes were awesome and made her cry. I would highly recommend them for you party.
Response from Carpe Sono:
Thank you so much Richard! It was our pleasure to perform at the party and hang with you, your family and friends! We had a great time! -Darnell
Want to WOW your family and friends at your next event? Then you need the amazingly brilliant group of gifted artists that comprise Carpe Sono! Professional, friendly and so very talented- we were awestruck at their performance. Those voices- clear as a bell and hauntingly beautiful will stay with you for days.
Certainly one of the best gigs we've booked for our annual events!
Response from Carpe Sono:
Thank you so much, Sheila! We really enjoyed performing for the fundraiser and are already looking forward to coming back next year!
When my husband and I began planning the details of our wedding day, I knew I wanted an amazing
A capella group, en lieu of a traditional string quartet or the dreaded canned music. I searched the entirety of DFW, until I found Carpe Sono on Gig Salad. I fell in love with their sound and their vibe the minute I clicked on their youtube link. In that moment I knew - this was the group I wanted for my wedding ceremony. Would they be willing to travel? Would they be open to sing an original Bruno Mars mashup? Would they fit in my budget? The answer to all these questions was: YES! Not only was Carpe Sono willing to make the trip from Austin to Dallas, but they sang every requested song, including the Bruno Mars mashup, AMAZINGLY! Carpe Sono was absolutely everything I envisioned. Their voices blend beautifully; they're the perfect mix of crunk and classic with a range that suits every era. Carpe Sono really made our day especially memorable. A year later, our friends and family are still singing their praises! They truly are talented professional, who are also some of the warmest people you'll meet. If you're looking for a unique addition to your ceremony - I highly recommend you book Carpe Sono. Trust me, you will not be disappointed!
I've hired this fantastic group twice. Each time they've learned a song that I requested. Showed up on time and knocked it out of the park!
Most recently I asked them to learn a song and perform it as our recessional at our wedding. They were absolutely perfect. They are easy to work with and very professional. I could recommend them more highly.
I will recommend them to anyone and they very professional though the hold process. I hired them to sing a singing telegrams to my Valentine and they did amazing job. They learn a new song for me in a short period of time and they did a great job. Darnell answer all my questions and I felt comfortable though the hold process. I will recommend to anyone. Thanks again Carpo Sano
Response from Carpe Sono:
Thank you so much, Terry!!!
You were an amazing client and Ashley is one lucky girl to have you has a friend :) Looking forward to talking to you again down the road!
Carpe Sono was amazing at our school. They performed for our kiddos aged 18 months to 4 year old.
Our children loved listening to them and were mesmerized by their voices!
Response from Carpe Sono:
Thank you so much for your review, Erica!
We did not have many caroling gigs with kids this holiday season, so this was definitely a highlight for us! We would love to sing for the kiddos again!
Carpe Sono is great! Period.... They were able to help me surprise my girlfriend of 7 and a half years with an amazing performance. They were even willing to learn a different song outside of their repertoire within the brief timeline that we had (2 weeks). I could not be more happier with their professionalism and incredible skill. Per my now fiance "I appreciated that they knew the appropriate volume to sing at. It's kind of a weird comment, but they were present without being overbearing. I'm pretty sure that we will probably use them for our wedding."
Take my advice guys. Hire an a capella group (this group in particular) to perform for your proposal or any other special events. My girlfriend was shocked that I was able to organize this. To be honest, all it took was a facebook invite to her friends and family, some photos developed from our previous anniversaries, and hiring this group. Carpe Sono could not have made it any easier on their end. This group is fantastic!
Response from Carpe Sono:
Thank you for the gracious review, Anthony! Congrats on the engagement and it will be an honor to potentially be a part of your wedding day, just as it was with your engagement.
