Shout Music Company offers a few hand-selected classical duos (2-piece bands) comprised of some of the finest artists in the city. The duos perform primarily classical music, but each of them also have their own personal selection of light pop and familiar music, which varies from ensemble to ensemble. Please feel free to request a full set list from us.

One can choose from instrumentation such as violin and cello or violin and guitar. Some of the pros of booking a two-piece classical ensemble, is that the band is mobile, cost-effective, Eskom-proof (i.e. the band can play without electricity if need be, although amplification would be necessary for larger gatherings) and is the type of ensemble that will add a touch of class to any wedding or event.

This type of ensemble is perfect to welcome your guests on arrival before a wedding ceremony, perform the processional and recessional songs, although additional charges my be incurred if the songs are not part of the ensembles repertoire in order to obtain/transcribe/rehearse the music. Allow them to continue to treat your guests post ceremony at the canap├ęs/cocktails while the bridal couple have their photo's taken or even have them create a sophisticated, romantic mood during the reception dinner. The ensemble could as easily work for cocktails at a corporate event or to surprise your spouse with something special for a big birthday or special party.
