Looking for music recommendations for Amalfi coast wedding..
Save

Hi all,

I am looking for recommendations for music for my Amalfi coast wedding (Ravello) next may.

I have been in contact with Marco Cantrella, and Bruno at amalficoastmusic.net, just wondering if anyone has used either of these, or have any further contacts?

Many thanks,

Maria

We were married on the 1st of October 2010 at the Villa Olivierio in Positano, Italy.

First and foremost, our wedding wouldn't have been as amazing if Bruno and his team were not there to provide the music for us. We planned our wedding on short notice and from the USA. We found their English to be very good and they were very easy to deal with especially under tight time constraints since we only gave them three/four weeks notice about our wedding date. They offered us a variety of options for our budget and it was a very good value. When it came to the event, they were punctual, extremely professional and well-dressed. They knew exactly where to set up without distraction for the ceremony and the cocktail party which took a lot of pressure off of us as we were getting ready for the wedding, as well. Their musical choices for the cocktail party and most of the wedding ceremony (excluding the bridal march which was our request), were all appropriate for the situation. In addition, the volume was just right and allowed us to enjoy both Bruno's music and conversations with guests. It is important to note that our guests commented that they also loved the music. When the musicians' time was done, they broke down their equipment and left without distraction. On a special note, we also want to point out how accommodating they were as there was a very difficult climb to and from the villa which was over 90 steps (of different heights and lengths) and not the easiest climb while having to carry heavy musical equipment on a fairly warm day.

All in all, the whole experience was very good and we would certainly use Bruno and his team again for any intimate event and would recommend him to anyone. We are very happy we found him!

We looked up alot of musicians for our wedding and I found Almafi Coast Music the best out of everyone! I am very fussy and I listened and researched alot of musicians online, the minute I heard Bruno sing I knew his band was for us. Their website is very detailed giving you samples of all their music and songs. They have a huge array of music so they definitely will have something for everyone. Bruno has excellent English, always responded to my emails immediately and was very helpful and obliging.

Everyone at the wedding reception loved them and they were very courteous, professional and friendly.

I would most definitely recommend Bruno and his team for any special occasion, you won't be disappointed.

My daughter was married at Positano Town Hall in July 2011, Bruno of Amalfi Coast Music recommended and provided the harpist and violinist for the ceremony. Excellent choice! He also played acoustic guitar duriing the cocktail hour at Palazzo Murat and his band played during the reception. I thoroughly recommend Bruno for your wedding, party, etc. He is professional, organised, friendly, charming, trustworthy, a good communicator and does a great job.

I do not know what I would have done without hm when I was organising my daughter's wedding, he was my rock. , Bruno is happy to make recommendations and give advice and he seems to know exactly what is happening on the Amalfi Coast and is popular with everyoneI The wedding day was a great success helped in no small part by Bruno and of course the beautiful setting and cuisine of the Palazzo Murat. Thanks Bruno.- you're a star!

Hi Bruno,

Yvonne and I just wanted to say a big thank you for playing at our reception at Cafe Latino in Sorrento.

You were fantastic and made the evening reception for us and our guests. We had so much fun and everyone has commented on how good your two piece was.

We were both a little worried about booking you just over the internet without hearing you play but we really could not of picked a better band to play at our wedding. You really understood what we were after and we were very happy when you said you would be able to also play our first dance, it brought tears to some of our friends eyes!

Hope you manage to get to your own reception soon.

Best wishes

Jolly and Yvonne

Hi Laura,

Really helpful comment! Thank god for forums like this. We are hoping to get married in Ravello also. So far I have been in touch with two planners but one has said they don't cover Ravello and the reception the other recommended only allows music etc until 10.30 pm! We are keen for chilled out reception outdoors. Do you have any suggestions for planners or venues? Would be so grateful for any advice you have. I'm finding emailing a bit daunting!

Thanks in advance!

Hello All,

This is a quick note to wholeheartedly recommend Bruno (Amalficoastmusic.net). We saw his band WS Duo on youtube and immediately thought they would be perfect for our elegant setting at the Caruso, in Ravello. We exchanged emails with Bruno and felt reassured that he'd take good care of the music arrangements for the whole event. Against our wedding planner's advice who tried to get us to use her chosen music organiser, we went with Bruno for the church music (tenor and organist), cocktails (Neapolitan duo) and reception (WS Duo). It's very hard making your wedding arrangements remotely but Bruno did not let us down. Everything worked out beautifully and we keep getting comments from our guests about the lovely experience they had at our wedding because of the wonderful music we had. Our wedding took place last Tuesday and I'd happily give further details to anyone wishing to find out more (I fully appreciate how hard it is to do things remotely!).

Thank you, Bruno!

We used Bruno from Almalfi Coast Music for our wedding on the 1st September at the Hotel Caruso and it was just amazing.

From the time we starting communicating with Bruno over a year before the wedding up until after the event, he understood what we wanted and delivered and always went beyond to deliver the perfect scenario for us and no matter how many challenges we presented him with, he always came back with a solution which we were very happy with

We had the most amazing day starting with the best Italian Tenor who still brings tears to my eyes when I watch clips, followed by Strings at our cocktail who were fantastic and then Bruno took us through the dinner with his duo which was just the perfect collection of music for a magical setting

Our dinner finished with a Scottish Piper (and yes Bruno managed to make this dream come true too in Italy for us) coming out with smoke and lights on him at the top of the stairs near the archway, which was truly magical and he then piped all of us up to the pool area for the reception

We then finished our evening with a DJ

Bruno really helped us to realise our dream wedding and make it intimate, magical and romantic

Would recommend him to anyone organising a wedding on Almalfi

We hired Amalfi Coast Music for our wedding on 30 September in Positano, Italy. We hired a four piece jazz band with Bruno as our lead singer. I would have absolutely no hesitation to recommend Bruno and his band for your wedding, or any event that required music. Bruno was a pleasure to deal with, and we felt confident that he was adamant to ensure that our wedding day music was all that we wanted and much, much more. Bruno was constantly in communication with us leading up to the wedding and answered our emails immediately which helped us feel sure that this was a person/group that we could rely on and trust for our most special day. Our guests haven't been able to stop talking about the band and how much they loved it and enjoyed every second of the music they provided for us. From the minute they started playing, the dance floor was never empty and I can honestly say, that Bruno and his band absolutely made our wedding reception without a doubt. I am so happy I found them and wouldn't have changed it for the world. Thank you so much for making our wedding the best day of our lives.

We found Bruno online, and we really loved their style. We communicated via email in the preparation for the big day, and found Bruno to be extremely efficient and polite. His track list has the perfect blend of classic, and modern all tasteful, and very cool. I had a particular song in mind for the first dance “Maybe Im Amazed” by Paul McCartney. Bruno had not performed this song before, and to our surprise, he actually agreed to learn the track from scratch!

On the day, the band completely blew us away, and really surpassed our expectations. The live guitars were sensational, and Bruno has an amazing way of making every song he performs sound just like the original. The performances just kept coming all the way through the evening, getting more and more upbeat as the party got going. I am a real music enthusiast, and I could not have asked for a better performer for our wedding day.

Thanks Bruno, you really made our wedding reception, and created some wonderful memories. We just hope your still performing when we renew our vows in about 40 years time!
