MUSIC FOR RONDI & AARON:
Hi, I'm Derik! You may know me as the guitar player on the FOX TV show "Glee." Since working in TV & Film several years ago, my full time career has been making people feel something powerful through live music, sibling harmonies, and genuine human connection from the stage. I've performed for audiences ranging in size from 1 to 70,000 in over 200 cities across the country since 2016. I've also sang and performed at dozens of weddings. I, myself, just got engaged a few months ago to the love of my life, Camille— I understand the joy, the pressure of decisions, and of course: the importance of selecting live music for your wedding! Choose what speaks to you, what moves you, and brings the "sixth sense" of love and emotion to your day. I can't wait to be that soundtrack for your wedding day.
Hey, I'm Riana! I'm so excited to be joining my younger brother Derik to lend my warm velvety vocal performance for your wedding day. When you book us, you'll email and chat directly with me— I'll be your contact all the way through our actual performance on your wedding day. Seamless! I have work experience as a wedding calligrapher, event planner & reception coordinator, customer service professional, and assistant to a wedding photographer! What I've learned through these different roles is make sure you delegate to vendors, people, and friends you trust. Do you have a great gut feeling about who they are as humans? That gut feeling will carry you through your wedding day, so you'll know they've got your back and you can focus on the beautiful once-in-a-lifetime moments right in front of you. Derik and I are "twin brains" and we pride ourselves in attention to detail, intimate arrangements of the songs you really desire to hear, and intuitive "knowing" of timing and social cues to make sure you AND your guests feel completely at ease with the soundtrack of your ceremony. We can't wait to celebrate you!
