"They do it all and do it superbly! John and Briana were fantastic on our wedding day. We booked them to perform live music during our ceremony and DJ during our reception. The live music was guitar, violin, and vocalist. They chose a female vocalist for a custom song they learned for us and it came out simply beautiful. John also sang for our recessional song and sounded fantastic! John was a pleasure to work with throughout, offering his opinions and expertise when you asked for it. He is a sincerely thoughtful and nice guy. We had the pleasure of seeing them in two separate weddings leading up to our own! In each case, and especially during our own wedding, they were simply fantastic." -Logan K.
"Go with John and Briana, you won't regret it. John and Briana did an incredible job. The live string duet was perfect for our ceremony and John threw down as DJ for the reception. He played all of our requests, and matched our style perfectly based on the conversations we had leading up to the event. John was always responsive and happy to help with a smile on his face. Can't recommend them enough." -Matthew F.
"What can I say about these guys... they were absolutely amazing!! To start, we live in eastern Nebraska so planning a destination wedding isn’t always a walk in the park. However, John was so attentive and communicative with us. He really helped us capture our special day perfectly! For our wedding ceremony, we had a pianist, vocalist, guitarist and violinist all through the Trading Post Co! They were absolutely beautiful and we received so many compliments about how wonderful the music was. John was also our DJ for the reception and did a fabulous job transitioning into different songs, watching the guest and how the mood was, took request songs, and so much more! In a nutshell, they definitely deserve way more than 5 stars and would recommend them to everyone!!" -Hannah K.
"What a great "one-stop shop!" John and Briana were great throughout the whole process. I mostly communicated with John and he was such a calming presence from the beginning. He expressed interest in the sort of "different" things that we wanted to do and also let us relax and dictate as much of the music as we wanted. John and Briana did our ceremony music live and also during cocktail hour, which sounded amazing (we received many compliments throughout and after the wedding about them!), and then John served as our DJ during the reception. John was also very patient with us when we were still running around getting pictures done when he was getting ready to mic us for the ceremony. John was a perfect balance of following our sample (way too long) playlist as a guidepost, making announcements when necessary (unlike DJs in movies who talk too much and have very ~extra~ personalities), and played great music so that our dance floor was full nearly the whole evening! It's a good sign at a party when the music is ending and everyone wants it to keep going! They were both so sweet and personable throughout. Could not have asked for more!" -Holly T.
"Absolutely perfect music for our Sunday Brunch Wedding! We were looking for a simple acoustic 2-4 piece band that could play a range of classics, as well as a few songs we requested. The music we were looking for was a combination of French Guitar, Hot Club Jazz, and various classic artists such as Frank Sinatra and Louis Armstrong. We found the Trading Post Duo, and the samples they provided fit the musical style we were looking for perfectly. John and Briana were very professional about everything, and more than willing to learn a few of our requested songs they had not played yet. They are very well versed musicians, and can play a wide variety of genres. We had them play before and during our ceremony, as well as the beginning of our reception (first dances and brunch). The Trading Post Duo was exactly what we were hoping for and they hit it out of the park!" -Bobby & Járie
"It was a true privilege getting to work with John and Briana for our wedding. Their beautiful music made our ceremony even more special. Not only did they perfect the more traditional songs we selected, but they beautifully played two songs special to me and my husband, which they learned specifically for our wedding - we were so grateful to them for that, as it made our big day even more personal and memorable! All of our guests loved their music during our cocktail hour as well, as they played a range of fantastic songs, with a lot of variety. Briana and John are incredibly talented, kind and professional, and I couldn't recommend them more highly!" -Ashley & Phil
"We hired John and Briana to play at our wedding and we couldn't be more pleased. The music was not only beautiful and perfect for the occasion, but they were willing to learn a special request song for the ceremony as well. They were very accommodating and an absolute pleasure to work with. We ran into a slight delay that threw off some of the timing which they handled in stride without any complaint or question. Out of all of the moving pieces of the wedding, John and Briana may have been the easiest and most worry free! I would highly recommend them if you're looking for a pair of talented musicians who really care about making your event special; they were a real blessing to us! We would definitely hire them again if we need some beautiful live music for an event!" - Jenny and Phil
