There are a lot of instruments that go well with the violin, such as the piano, cello, and guitar. Our Modern Duo features a unique combination of violin and guitar music. Our duo mostly plays acoustic violin and guitar music that is both soothing and romantic.

There are a variety of instruments that sound good together. However, one instrument duet that has been popular with our clients is the Modern Duo. A unique violin and guitar duo, our Modern Duo produces the perfect harmony of classical and acoustic music.

The Modern Duo is a two-member group with a violinist and guitarist. Thus, they do not need a large amount of space. We do recommend that a space that fits two chairs, two music stands, speakers, and amplifiers be allotted for our Modern Duo.

Technically speaking, contemporary music refers to any music created after the year 1945. However, it is loosely used to refer to music that is current and relevant. For example, our Modern Duo specializes in modern, contemporary music, meaning they often play pieces that are current instead of classical pieces.

What Our Past Clients Say About Us

  1. Ann Quan


    The Ranch at Laguna Beach

    Mark (guitar and vocalist) and Mathias (violinist) had an OUTSTANDING performance at our wedding this month at The Ranch at Laguna Beach. We had an outdoor venue and they brought their own speakers, allowing the sounds to echo across the golf course for our guests to enjoy. We also had them come up to the reception area to provide live music during dinner and they were absolutely amazing! Our guests enjoyed their lovely music and duo performance.

  2. Lisa G.


    PGA West La Quinta, California

    I just wanted to let you know that everything was great at our wedding. The musicians were awesome and played the cues well. We really enjoyed having live musicians for our ceremony and cocktail hour. Thanks for everything.

  3. Megan A.


    Tivoli Italian Villa, Fallbrook, California

    I recommend Ocdamia Music Group, and specifically Margie (the Founder/Operations Manager) and the duo Mathias and Lyle WITHOUT RESERVATION. We hired them for our wedding pre-ceremony music, ceremony procession, and cocktail hour.

    After a prolonged and stressful search for live musicians for my wedding, 2 months before the big day and losing hope, I reached out to OMG and Margie was swift to reply. She was incredibly great to work with, providing advice on the appropriate musicians and providing ample links to example videos. Margie is an advocate for both brides and her musicians — creating an ideal go-between person. She is incredibly organized.

    Mathias and Lyle were wonderful. Mathias spoke with us on the phone in advance. He expressed being open to learning new songs, but this was not necessary because they had a range of song genres on their set list. He brainstormed with me regarding which songs to use for my procession, etc. Guests described the musicians as creating a great environment during cocktail hour. I found them extremely professional to work with.

    Thank you!!!!!!

    Omni Rancho Las Palmas Resort & Spa | Palm Springs, California

    They were great! We appreciated that they learned that entrance song for us, they sounded great and we would definitely recommend them!

  5. Katie T.


    Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort And Spa

    I wish I had more time to stay around our musicians to enjoy the music that they played on our wedding day because the omg duo of Mathias and Levi sounded excellent! Our guests agreed and everyone seemed to enjoy that ambiance. I’ve been in touch with Margie ever since before the pandemic hit and reached out again after the government reopened. She was very helpful and patient during the whole process. Everything worked out great and everyone was completely on task and professional which we totally appreciated and needed on such a day where so many other things can not go according to plan. We were glad that we were able depend on them for our special day and their performance exceeded our expectations.
