The Obsidian Duo plays jazz, classical, and some popular music. The versatility of violin and piano is the perfect choice for an event that requires different styles of music, such as classical music for a wedding and jazz for a cocktail hour or reception. Because the duo reads from piano scores, there is a wide selection of music available for special requests.

Unlike a string duo which can only play two lines of music, violin and piano gives a rich, full sound with only two instruments. This gives you the most "bang for your buck" in a small ensemble.

For venues that don't have a piano or for outdoor events, we bring a keyboard. Our new keyboard is a top of the line model that allows us to load a piano sound that was actually recorded from a concert quality piano.

Carla was very responsive and responded to any questions quickly. They also sent us a CD for the rehearsal so we could practice with the music. They played a live demo to help us pick out the music we wanted at their house. This was very helpful when choosing our songs. They seemed to know the songs we needed and played them well. Also, one thing that bothers me is the timing of the music not being appropriate to the wedding party, but they did an excellent job of making sure the songs were played at the right time. I would definitely recommend them.

We enjoyed working with Carla and Daniel for our ceremony. They provided the ceremony music and really worked with us to customize the songs and brainstorm on selections. The music was beautiful, and they even have a portable piano they can provide if the venue does not have a piano.

If I could give the Obsidian Duo 10 stars, I definitely would! My wedding was 9/3/2011 and my guests/family are still commenting on the beautiful arrangments they played. Leading up to the wedding, Carla was always very responsive and answered any questions I had within 24 hours. I highly reccomend the Obsidian Duo to all brides. Their performance was absolutely flawless. My Husband and I still listen to the CD they provided to us of our ceremony music.

My husband and I used Carla and Daniel of Obsidian Duo for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour at the Atlanta Biltmore. We had interviewed several musicians prior to choosing them and couldn't have been happier! Not only were they very professional and sounded great but they were the most reasonably priced musicians we came across. We would recommend them to anyone!

I had the piano/violin duo for my wedding on June 18th. Carla and her husband are absolutely wonderful to work with! Not only did I enjoy communicating with Carla before the wedding, but I was blown away by the beautiful music. I also needed a soloist at the last minute, and Carla had one booked within one day! They are wonderful, and if you are smart you will use them to make your day so special like they did mine!

Carla and Daniel were amazing to work with. We booked them just a few weeks before our wedding date. My husband and I knew we wanted some traditional elements and some unique musical pieces. They played everything for us and helped us customize the music for our ceremony. After meeting with them, they provided a cd of our music for the rehearsal. It was a pleasure working with both of them, and we highly recommend them.

Carla and Daniel provided music (violin and keyboard) for our outdoor ceremony. Carla was responsive whenever we emailed, they sounded great, they were affordable, and they even gave us a CD of the music we selected (great to have for the rehearsal!). I would definitely work with them again.

Carla and Daniel were so wonderful to work with. The song I'd chosen to walk down the aisle to was Jeff Buckley's version of "Hallelujah", which is guitar and voice, and transcribed it for Daniel and herself. They invited my now husband and me over to listen to them playing it live, and we were in tears, it was so beautiful! They listened to what kind of ceremony we wanted, and helped us pick out the rest of the ceremony music to reflect that. We also chose an original song Daniel composed to walk down the aisle at the end of the ceremony. It was so perfect! I would choose them again and again! AND the price was low. Overall, working with them was a dream.

From the first contact, the Padrons were calming and easy to work with. The music was awesome! Everyone at the wedding really enjoyed the atmosphere they created at the ceremony and reception. They were quick to respond to any questions I had which was a relief because wedding planning is soooo stressful!

Obsidian Duo was excellent. They learned a song that I really wanted played as I walked down the aisle. It was perfect. They also played during our cocktail hour and put our personality into the hour by playing Sweet Home Alabama and the Sex and the City theme song. These were all extra special touches that made our day all the better. They were very reasonably priced and great to work with. I wouldn't have changed a thing!

This violin and piano group played for my wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. We met with them at their home (they are a husband and wife team) and they played us music to choose from. They were so easy to work with and able to play some of the special requests I had for the ceremony. We also had them play for the cocktail hour.

They arrived early and were very professional. My guests commented on how beautiful the music was for the ceremony.
