For our wedding we had Lauren (vocals) and Will (guitar) from SteelRiver Duo perform during the cocktail hour and dance party portion of our night.
The moment they started playing for the cocktail hour they got the attention of our guests. Everyone was raving about how great they were. Numerous people told my wife and I how Lauren and Will created the perfect atmosphere for the occasion. We let the duo pick the song list for the cocktail hour and all our guests, young and old were very impressed by the variety of songs they were able to play.
For our first dance we had a special song request. We notified Lauren a few months in advance and her and Will were able to learn and make a special arrangement of the song, putting their own spin on it making it our special version.
The moment the first dance was through, they kicked off the party with some more up-beat tunes. My wife and I were able to choose our favourite songs from a very large set list that Lauren provided us.
Don't think for a second that just because they are a duo they can't get people moving. Who needs a DJ when you have Lauren and Will. With nothing but a mic and a guitar this duo had our guests dancing until 12:30 am! The dance floor was always packed and everyone was completely amazed how this initial cocktail band transformed into a dance groove producing machine.
SteelRiver Duo was a major part of the atmosphere at our wedding and the best part was that we were able to see them twice before at our other friend's weddings, We knew within a couple moments of seeing them that one day they would play on our big day. Even though we had our wedding in Kingston, Lauren and Will made the trip.
In the end, even when other parts of wedding planning got tough, we knew that with SteelRiver Duo it was going to be one heck of a party!
