We found the Albertson Duo on gigsalad.com and went to hear them live last fall to see if we wanted to hire them to play for our wedding this summer. We new in about 30 seconds that they would be PERFECT for our wedding. We wanted an acoustic vibe for our ceremony and cocktail hour. David and Megan's large diverse repertoire of music added to the exact vibe we were looking for. They worked well with our other vendors and coordinated well with our DJ to minimize the overall equipment needs. We also requested an additional musician (drummer/cajon player), who blended well with the David and Megan and created the fuller band sound in our outdoor venue. They did a fantastic job of putting many different styles of music into their own acoustic/folksy sound and we wouldn't hesitate to hire them again for another event!
The Albertson Duo added such a special touch to our wedding and we couldn’t be happier with their performance. David and Megan played our first dance song at our wedding in Tahoe. They were responsive and professional throughout the whole process. They coordinated with our DJ to ensure everything would go smoothly. David’s acoustic guitar playing in combination with Megan’s voice created the perfect backdrop to our first dance. They truly created a very memorable moment that will be with us for a lifetime. Thank you, David and Megan, for making our day even that much more special!
David and Megan (AKA The Albertson Duo) are an amazing duo that not only delivers an outstanding musical performance but are two of the most personable and friendly people that you would love to have as part of your family. David is multi-talented on many instruments and Megan's voice is phenomenal! Their playlist is great and they are open to requests prior to their performance. BOOK THEM NOW! You will not be disappointed.
My husband and I randomly went into Ninja Sushi one night with friends and the Albertson Duo was playing. We had planned on just having 1 drink and moving on but stayed the whole night listening to them play in amazement of how good they were! We ended up hiring them to play for our 40th Birthday bash and everyone couldn't stop asking for their info, highly recommend using them for your events or at the very least checking them out one night at their gigs. You will be hooked :).

The Albertson Duo
Our Musical Background
The Albertson Duo is comprised of Sacramento-based husband and wife team, Megan and David Albertson. Between these two, there is over 20 years of experience in live performance, which they use as an ever-flowing source of inspiration.
Having met initially in vocal jazz classes in college, Megan and David realized immediately that they had similar passions for making the best possible music they could. Armed with this passion, they set forth through the rest of their college years, pursuing higher education, while still playing live as often as possible. By the time both of them graduated from Sacramento State, they had a full and diverse library of music influences to draw from. Performing shows that ranged from classical orchestra groups, to SAMMIES® award winning rock bands, they have become professional fixtures in their music community.
When forming The Albertson Duo, they were laser focused in the show they wanted to create. With Megan on vocals and David on acoustic guitar, violin, mandolin, ukulele and harmonica, they found a way to put their own unique touch on an ever-expanding list of covers. With Megan’s stellar vocal power and David’s innate ability to craft a special full band sound with all his instruments, they play everything from Amy Winehouse and Adele, to Red Hot Chili Peppers and Maroon 5. In addition, they round out their set with a diverse selection of pop and R&B hits, sure to please any crowd of any size.
Always comfortable in any live music setting, The Albertson Duo are very well suited to play any event and any stage necessary. They have natural charisma and showmanship that fits perfectly in any restaurant or bar setting, as well as a perfectly crafted set to suit weddings, private parties, and corporate events. With The Albertson Duo as your entertainment, you will never be disappointed.
