We are a couple with combined 40 years of musical experience. We play covers ranging from classical composers to modern hits. We pride ourselves on our ability to deliver passion and grace through our music. Every song is played with elegance. We have played wedding ceremonies and we have played biker bars, so you never know what songs will make their way into a set list. Song list is 300+ covers.
I had a last minute cancellation and was in a jam to find some live music for a small event. We emailed back and forth a few times and they expressed interest in playing - then dissapeared. All I wanted was the courtesy of a response saying we cannot make it so I could pursue other musicians.

Kristina Lin is a 25 year classically trained pianist and 20 year violinist. She instantly gets the attention of everyone in the room from her presence alone. She is a quiet type until you put an instrument in her hand, but she speaks loud and clear when armed. Throughout the years, Kristina has taught hundreds of musicians ranging from 5 to 65 years old. She loves to share her passion for music with anyone who is willing to learn. Kristina loves classical music, but is a sucker for an acoustic guitar and a sweet, soft raspy voice.
Patrick Murphy is a self-taught musical mastermind. He picked up a guitar at the age of 17, being considered a late-comer to the game. His love for guitar happened almost immediately after picking up the first time. He spent the last 15 years training his ear and playing gigs all around the country. His strong suit is finger-style acoustic, along the likes of Tommy Emmanuel and Chet Atkins. Patrick is a sucker for 2 chord songs, quoting "simplicity breeds reliability." Another mantra of his is " A good song is not made of chords and words, it is made up of soul and feelings..."
