We are a group of four trained musicians who provide music for banquets, church groups, Christmas and seasonal events, etc.
We specialize in most forms of traditional music- classical, sacred, folk, national (Irish, Italian, etc), Broadway, renaissance, and some classic pop and classic Christian contempory.
We do vocal, and instrumental, featuring our singer, oboe, violin, French horn, classical guitar and keyboard.
We can provide a lot of variety out of four players.
We also can provide trios and duets where budgets are more limited.
Musicali provided prelude music for our church's Good Friday service. Their beautiful, thoughtful music choices provided the perfect background for our service. So very talented and diverse in the instruments they can play! They always responded very quickly to any communication answering all of my questions. They showed up exactly at the preset time and were completely professional in every possible way. I would absolutely recommend them for any type of acoustic or classical music needs you may have.
We hired Musicali for our wedding and they went far beyond any expectations that we had. Everyone loved them and they are great when it comes to adapted current hits. I think my wife and will have to renew our vows next summer, so we can have them play again! I can not thank them enough for making my special day absolutely perfect!
We booked a duo from Musicali (violin and classical guitar) and they ended up bringing an Oboe as well. I can't even begin to state how wonderful they made the atmosphere at both our wedding and reception. I spoke with Lee prior to arrange some songs we definitely wanted to hear and let them fill in the gaps. For our first dance, they performed an amazing rendition of twlight time by the platters, which we won't soon forget!
