Testimonials

Acoustic:

Exceptionally talented pair. Had the pleasure of listening to them on the P&O Britannia and they helped us have a fantastic time, we were truly entertained. The vocals are beautifully on point and create a perfect atmosphere. Best of all is their choice of repertoire, so much variety and perfect to relax to; I even found myself singing along on several occasions! Thanks for some great music. (Michael, cruise ship, 30/09/2017)

I booked Duo Volte for my wedding after hearing them live at a party. They were an absolute joy to work with, even learned a song to play my wife down the aisle! Illy’s voice is amazing and it just made the whole ceremony extra special. I’d recommend them to anyone. (Brian, wedding ceremony & drinks reception, 29/07/2017, Buckinghamshire)

Electric:

I wanted to say a huge thank you for playing my Mum's birthday party last week, you guys were amazing! The backing tracks sounded incredible and we all had a great dance - I've had so many compliments about you, you really made our night! (Michelle, 50th birthday party, 24/06/2017, Hertfordshire)

Duo Volte were fantastic and I would highly recommend them for any occasion, small or large. The quality of professionalism from pre-event communication, event setup, keyboard skills and singing were out of this world. We had the 'electric' option and this provided a great dance atmosphere at a 40th birthday party in a pub, but would equally be as good for a larger event. The set list and variance in music genre was impressive and everyone enjoyed themselves and commented on how good the band were. I would hire this band again. (Ian, 40th Birthday Party, 20/01/2018, Farnham, Surrey)
