Our happy clients
Thank you for your performance at our 50th Wedding Anniversary. My wife said that your performance was the highlight of the entire evening. You are both excellent musicians, and we thoroughly enjoyed your performance.
Robert and Cindy were absolutely amazing! Their elegant and beautiful music truly set the tone for our special day. Not only did they continually stay in touch with us throughout the entire process of our extensive music lists and last minute changes, but they even happily welcomed our unique request to accompany my sister as she sang during the ceremony. They even suggested a session with my sister to practice the song beforehand to ensure its perfection. We received so many compliments from our guests about how much they enjoyed listening to their music. I would recommend this amazing duo to anyone who plans on getting married (or for any other special occasion). We only had them play music during our ceremony and cocktail hour so one of our biggest regrets is not having them play during our dinner as well. Instead we settled for the DJ playing "classical" music. If you want your day to be extra special you definitely want to book Robert and Cindy :)
Robert and Cindy, a married duo, were the highlight of our event. All our guests loved their renditions of the Beatles and Elvis songs. Under the moonlight, their music soaked into your soul. The preparation prior to our event was very easy and Ocotillo provided wonderful suggestions and answered all questions promptly. These musicians have personalities as lovely as their music. They even accepted requests from our guests from a customized list of preselected songs. We were honored to have their music at our renewal ceremony, and highly recommend with 5 stars!
Your music was the perfect addition to our wedding ceremony. I cannot express how much we appreciate your services. Ocotillo Music made the ceremony exactly as we had imagined -- magical. If you ever seek a reference, please don't hesitate to contact us.

I selected all classical music for my ceremony. Ocotillo Music did a fantastic job! The music was beautiful, exactly what I wanted. They are very professional and can do pretty much anything you want!
I would definitely recommend them to other brides. I requested a song that wasn’t already in their repertoire and they arranged the whole piece—and it was personalized. I got so many compliments on the music. It was really peaceful and a nice way to start the wedding.

They played so beautifully! My ceremony was so beautiful...I highly recommend this husband and wife team for your ceremony music! They even play new music like Train's Marry Me. I had my wedding party walk down to this! I couldn't have asked for better and professional artists!!!
Your music added so much to the ceremony and to the reception. We received many compliments. I especially wanted to thank you for your arrangement of "Today" as it meant a lot to my wife and I as it had been played at our wedding, and when we relayed that to the newlyweds, it meant a lot to them as well.

The music was perfect, good sound quality and we thought they provided the perfect soundtrack to our ceremony. After that, our cocktail hour location was about 100 yards away from their setup at the ceremony, but they moved quickly without any problems. Again, their music really set the tone for the moment. All-in-all I don't think we could have found a better duo to match our vision and our budget. We highly recommend Ocotillo!
We chose Ocotillo for our daughter’s wedding because we knew their music would set the perfect mood for the ceremony—and it did. Their instrumental musicality and repertoire were perfect.

We hired Ocotillo to play music for our daughter's wedding before and during the ceremony. We could not have been more pleased with their beautiful performance. The guests were greeted with beautiful Spanish classical and romantic music that set the perfect atmosphere for the romantic out door wedding my daughter wanted. I would most definitely use them again and we are so very pleased to refer Ocotillo to family and friends.
-- Mr & Mrs Lopez
The music they provided for Stephanie and Nate's wedding was wonderful. The guests enjoyed the music as they waited for the ceremony to start. Our church pianist told me later that she was very impressed with their musical ability.
-- LeighAnn Melancon, mother of the bride
I am so happy with my decision to have Ocotillo play at my wedding. I was looking for something unique to add to my ceremony that set it apart from ordinary; and Ocotillo definitely exceeded my expectations. The musicians worked with me to create the playlist that I wanted and even went out of their way to compose specific songs. Their communication with me leading up to my wedding was excellent and I never felt unsure about any of the terms of our agreement. They showed up early, dressed professionally and played beautiful music. Their prices were much more reasonable than other options available in Phoenix. I would highly recommend Ocotillo to anyone who is looking for that "special touch" to their wedding
Thank you so much for the beautiful music at our wedding. It was just what we wanted and we absolutely loved it.
-- Crystal and Andy
Robert and Cindy performed at our daughter's cocktail reception at The Arizona Grand. Their music added a definite touch of class to the event and was enjoyed by all. They were terrific and I would highly recommend them to anyone who is looking to add that special touch to their wedding day.
Our wedding ceremony would not have been the same without them! We wanted a classic sound, but we also wanted something unique and personal, and they were able to give us both. The blend of the mandolin and cello, and the warm sound of the guitar, set the perfect tone for our wedding. And our family and friends are still talking about how much they loved the music! Ocotillo music was able to take the songs we love and give them a feel that both matched our personalities and the atmosphere that we wanted to share on such a special day. We can't thank Ocotillo music enough for their time, talent, and energy, and we hope that many others will have the opportunity to experience what we did.
-- Lenny & Claire
At our outdoor wedding it would have been simple to have recorded music to entertain the guests until the proceedings started. We used Ocotillo Music instead and not only did the music seem more personal and warm than recorded music being played through a P.A. system, the visual of having professional musicians playing cello and mandolin gave a sense of eloquence and thoughtfulness to the entire event and our guests really did appreciate that. We loved the detail Cindy and Robert applied to every musical selection, the warmth of the strings seemed to enhance the charm of the evening and I highly recommend Ocotillo Music to every person I know for their wedding day.
-- Thomas and Leora Willette
Thank you for providing the musical entertainment for our St. Vincent de Paul District Social at Church of the Ascension. The music selections were superb and we had many compliments from the attendees. I hope that you will be available to entertain for us again in the future.
