Congratulations! :D We know how exciting it is to anticipate a wedding because our business is run by Sam and Kylie Irvin, the husband and wife musical duo extraordinaire! We only represent projects that we participate in directly so our passion for performance, the care we put into our arrangements and our extensive collective experience translates to a higher quality of music. That means a deeper enjoyment for you and your guests and that enjoyment on such a significant occasion reciprocates artistic fulfillment for us too! At over 100 events already, we're prepared to personally craft requests, amplify with choice equipment and offer the right vibe for you!
Currently, we offer Solo Guitar, Guitar/Violin Duet, and a Jazz Ensemble for rehearsal dinners, prelude/ceremonies, postlude/cocktail hours and dinners/light receptions! Each option includes the opportunity to include vocals, personally arranged requests, a microphone for the officiant and more!
Sam and his team of musicians are absolutely outstanding. For my wedding on 9/17/2021 they composed 3 songs of our choice to be included in our processional and recessional, and it was stunningly beautiful. It was truly what we envisioned for our ceremony music. Then they kicked it up a notch for lively music during our cocktail hour, and made it so much fun. I highly recommend Sam and his team!
My wife and I asked Sam to play at our outdoor wedding in August of 2021 and our expectations were far exceeded but both his professionalism and his musicianship. We planned our own wedding and we were interested in vendors that worked well with us, the venue, and our guests. When we spoke with Sam, he was prompt with his communication and very flexible with the services he was able to offer. This continued through the entire planning process, which proved very comforting when planning a wedding from three states away.
On our wedding day, he was able to adapt his performance to the venue and the weather. He was more than happy to coordinate with our DJ and the transition was seamless. This included moving his equipment after the ceremony to continue playing for cocktail hour and hustling up the big hill to cover when it started raining. When he resumed playing and the rain had cleared, he played “Here comes the Sun”, adding another memory to our already unforgettable day.
Both my wife and myself come from families filled with life-long musicians. Her and I both studied music in college and continue to enjoy music in our lives. It was refreshing to work with a wedding vendor that could “speak” our language and provide a very individualized performance. Perhaps the most thoughtful thing that Sam did was arrange a song for us and give us a framed copy of the arrangement as a gift. This act exemplifies his eagerness to make every event amazing.
If you are looking for a professional artist that will make your event exactly what you want, we strongly recommend using Sam and Irvin Music Studio!
Sam and Kate were an indispensable element to the magic of our wedding. They not only played a beautiful set that we specifically arranged from their list of songs, but they impeccably learned four additional songs that have special meaning for me and my (now) wife--and the music of which was not all easy to find! They took the time to understand our ceremony schedule and play the special requests at their specific times--offering us a spiritual experience and gift that will remain in our hearts forever and brought special power, sublimity and endurance to the ceremony and vows. I have immense gratitude--wish we could do it again! But alas--for a once in a lifetime event--you can rely on these two to take care of you and create something beautiful.
We hired Sam (on guitar) and Kate (on violin) fir our daughter’s small wedding in the NC mountains. Sam worked with us during the contract and planning stages and then we met Kate at the wedding. They are both very professional and great to work with. The music was beautiful and added a very special touch to the wedding.
We highly recommend them!
Sam definitely met our expectations for our ceremony. His kind and friendly demeanor gave us confidence and comfort knowing that he would meet our expectations at our intimate wedding ceremony. He communicated well about what he was confident in performing for us and gave his professional opinion on songs, etc. He stayed in constant communication with us up until our special day and arrived early to setup. His performance was wonderful and everything g we expected. We would definitely recommend Sam for your special occasion!
Sam played our wedding in the mountains and it was perfect! The acoustic guitar sounded great even in such a large outdoor setting. He was very responsive to all my questions, had a great selection of music, and was very personable to work with. He set up/packed up quickly and without effort, which was very helpful. All the guests were very impressed, and we'd definitely recommend his services to others in the area. Thanks again, Sam, for your professionalism, musicality, and ease of working with!
