Acoustica - Acoustic Duo

The duo are impressing audiences across the country with their unique take on rock and pop classics such as The Cure’s ‘Friday I’m In Love’ or Norman Greenbaum's 'Spirit In The Sky'. Their quality acoustic set also takes in 80’s pop-rock like Michael Jackson’s ‘Leave Me Alone’ and Bon Jovi’s ‘You Give Love A Bad Name’, as well recent alt-rock hits like The Killer’s ‘Human’, complemented by selections of a more laid-back vibe including faithful renditions of Beatles and Beach Boys standards.

Such a large and varied repertoire of popular songs, delivered with skilled guitar interplay and augmented by the frontman's natural charisma and instinct to entertain, make the duo's twin acoustic guitar sound and vocal harmonies ideal live music for a wedding or birthday party, equally suited to a two hour party performance or an intimate after dinner session.

The duo is made up of a singer/songwriter with airplay on radio 2, and a talented young musician who recently released his first EP on the back of a well received performance at the nationally famous Bristol Harbour Festival.

Whatever the reason for hiring a live band you can count on the versatility of the duo's sound and on their professionalism. The duo provide their own quality P.A. system, engineering and lighting rig, as well as a comprehensive and tailored DJ service playing a mix of classic songs from over the decades through to the present day.

Acoustica - Acoustic Duo Feedback

Hi Geoff, Your email beat mine as I am giving feedback to everyone involved.  The wedding was a complete success and enjoyed by everyone.  The comments about the duo were excellent and a few people said that it was a shame we had them as background music while we chatted rather than sitting down and listening to them properly.  I hope you will let them know that their contribution was much appreciated and we will certainly recommend you. Regards", Jill Hughes Septemer 2013

"The duo played a live acoustic set and provided a DJ service at our wedding on August 21st, 2010. They were extremely professional both in the lead up the day and on the day itself - despite having to work with us remotely in Dubai via email to organise things and then enduring some pretty horrendous weather during set up on the day."

"They made the effort to find out what kind of music we liked and did a great job both playing a live set (their version of The Killers - Mr. Brightside, learned specially for our first dance, was fantastic) and providing an excellent mix of tunes later on in the DJ set."

"The duo were professional, prompt and personable throughout and I would definitely recommend them to others looking for a talented musicians for an event.
Many thanks for helping make our Big Day so special."

"Top acoustic act. Two contrasting personalities combine to give you a fantastic and entertaining evening out"

"When this duo turn up, you know you're going to have a good night. The simplicity of their arrangement, the skill of delivery, the choice of material and the quality of their sound leave most other acoustic duos in the dirt. You can't beat a bit of Bristol stage-banter either!"
Jay Marsh, Promoter at The Selkirk, London.

"The Bristol Acoustic Duo are a fantastic acoustic act. Our Cricket Club booked them for a Dinner & Dance & the guys did a brilliant acoustic set - lots of well known covers, older ones for the wrinklys & plenty of new stuff for the kids. Followed that with a DJ session as we danced the night away. Looking forward to seeing the duo again very soon."
Simon Gould, Chairman. The Old Down Cricket Club.

''This duo offer a superb range of cover versions which will appeal to all ages. With a highly polished quality of performance, they will gaurantee you a wonderful night of music.''

"The Bristol Duo played a great mixture of music and kept us happy and dancing! Everyone enjoyed them and we would book them again in the future."

"The duo were excellent. They provided fantastic live music and were then very happy to provide a disco later on in the evening. They were really good at providing the correct atmosphere and we have had some really good feedback. I would definately recommend them."

"A brilliant choice of band to have at our mini festival, the quality of music, the entertainment value and professionalism all came through. All our guests enjoyed the music and we would definitely use them again!"

"The duo were very professional and arrived punctually and smartly dressed. It was a great day for the store and the duo played for twelve hours over two days, receiving many compliments from our customers. I would certainly recommend them as a talented professional set-up who can adapt their set and style to play anywhere."
Store Manager - Marks & Spencer

"Phil and I wanted to thank you for the fantastic performance at our wedding at the Larmer Tree Gardens. You were extremely pleasant to deal with and instantly on speaking to you about the booking I felt really pleased about our decision to book your duo. I really hope you both enjoyed playing on the stage, we had so many comments from guests who loved your set; It was perfect for what we imagined. Thank you again for making our day so special, be both really enjoy our music and love live music so it was such an important thing to find a band who could make the most of the venue. You really did, so thank you."

"I have received so many great comments about the party. Everything went well, the venue, the food & especially the music, even my very trendy sons thought you did a fantastic job. I couldnt believe it when you said it was 12:30,the evening went so quickly."

"Everyone loved the music and thought it was a really good mix of songs. We thought your bits of chat between songs were good fun too. It's not often my parents jump up and dance but they couldn't get enough of it. We both really enjoyed your performance."
