    Lindsay was amazing! She provided the music for our daughter’s wedding and during the cocktail hour at the reception. Her style is wonderful and she has an extensive knowledge of so much music. She added a touch of elegance to our event. We highly recommend her!

    Lindsay was a highlight of our wedding reception. She is very talented and can play many different types of music. Our wedding was held at a camp in central Massachusetts and we wanted a folk acoustic feel, which she can play perfectly. Lindsay learned our favorite song for our first dance, and had everyone in tears for when we danced with our dads. She was so helpful in recommending songs for specific moments of our wedding and very accommodating and flexible when setting timelines for our day. From the beginning Lindsay was very professional and quick to respond to emails. One thing we were most impressed with was her ability to get to know us and what we wanted for music on our wedding day. She played a good balance of crowd favorites and their original songs, which gave our reception a unique and personal touch. They were naturals at feeling out the vibe of our venue/guests and setting the tone that we wanted. Lindsay was a perfect fit for our reception and we are so happy to have booked her. The music was unique and loved by all of our guests. People were up dancing and sitting, enjoying the lovely music. As a same-sex couple, Lindsay and Jordan were a safe and comfortable option for us.

    Lindsay was beyond amazing, I can't say enough nice things about her and the special touch she brought to our wedding. Lindsay played during our ceremony and cocktail hour. First and foremost, she has the most beautiful and enchanting voice (we heard a sample and were hooked immediately). She was very easy to work with and so helpful throughout the entire process. Lindsay worked with us early on to get an idea of how she would best fit in and what we were looking for in terms of music choices. She provided guidance for the different songs that play during the ceremony and then what type of music she would play at the cocktail hour. We had so many guests come up to us asking about Lindsay and saying how wonderful she was and that she really made the ceremony special. I would recommend her over and over again and we look forward to seeing her at some of the other shows she plays around us! Thank you Lindsay!

    If you've listened to some of Lindsay's music, and you think it might be a fit for your wedding, do not hesitate! Lindsay was super responsive through the whole process. She has a very helpful website about when to use music during your ceremony and what to consider in your selections as well as a list of the songs she plays. When there was a song she didn't have a preview posted for, she even sat down and recorded it that evening to send to us. Her voice and playing were so beautiful and added so much to our day. Friends and family all made sure to tell us how much they enjoyed Lindsay's contribution!
