The Modern Duo's Past Performances

FAQ, Booking and General Policy

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.

    OMG! Delivered! Our wedding was a non-stop party and I could not have been more happy with going with Ocdamia Music Group. We hired their modern duo (guitar and violin) for ceremony and their full band for reception and it was the best decision from start to finish. Live music makes such a huge difference and we LOVED how our wedding played out. We had Tina and Tyler as the singers and our guests couldn’t stop raving about their electric energy! They were so interactive with the crowd and we just loved it. At one point I realize I was dancing so much that I have not eaten or spent much time with my new husband — but I didn’t care because I was having an amazing time on the dance floor. From the getgo, Margie the owner has been a real pleasure to work with and was so responsive to everything, including irrelevant issues like my wedding dress catastrophe. They also were not only on time to the venue but extremely prepared. I so highly recommend going with their band and/or ceremony music. It was one of the best decisions we made and I KNOW I will use OMG for future events ?

    Both the String Quartet and Modern (violin guitar duo) were great! We really loved having them play during our wedding! Margie was also very helpful and flexible during the planning process, which was much appreciated. Both groups were willing to learn new pieces for us, which was great!

    We hired “The Modern Duo” for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. Margie was easy to work with through the booking process. She was helpful and friendly. The duo were amazing musicians. Highly recommend for any couple looking for ceremony musicians!
