“Solatido was fantastic in every way! We chose some unusual music for our wedding procession, but they had fun with it and brought that energy the whole day. So many of our guests commented how amazing the music was, which made our day extra special and memorable. I think the true testament is that we’re going to see them play again this weekend with a couple friends that were at the wedding!”
– Orycia Theaker

“We got so many compliments on the music that day. Thank you so much for playing that evening. ”

– Lauren Weber

“We were so pleased with Solatido’s performance, professionalism and talent at our Wedding ceremony and reception cocktail hour! They were fantastic and a lot of our guests were still talking about them after they had left! The booking process was simple and their song list has a wide variety of songs including new and old songs in many different genres. Would definitely recommend this talented duo!”

“We were extremely pleased with your contribution to our daughters wedding. We had so many beautiful comments about the music, and it made the occasion so very special.  Thank you again, it was so beautiful, our daughter said it was a perfect day!

Thank you , Thank you, Thank  you”

– Bride’s mother

“The music was so beautiful and it was one of my most favorite things that day!  I really appreciate how the musicians took the time to learn songs that I requested and played them beautifully. They really make any wedding extra special! It was such a pleasure working with the team. ”

“Solatido was an amazing addition to our wedding ceremony. We found them through an internet search and had the opportunity to hear them play at the Calgary Bridal Expo – they were wonderful and we booked them on the spot. Planning for the day went very smoothly. They were quick to respond to any questions we had. We picked four custom (and some unusual) songs for various moments in our ceremony, which were all played perfectly. Solatido was very professional throughout the whole process. They really added something extra special to our day and we would highly recommend them. ”

“The music was great. Our guests were so impressed how classy the music we chose was. We are so happy that you guys made our day memorable.”

– Ted & Toni

“Solatido were exceptional. From our initial communication to our customized wedding songs, we couldn’t be happier. Our guests were serenaded with wonderful music and we heard nothing but exceptional reviews from everyone who attended our wedding.
Leanne and I couldn’t be happier with the live music that was played during our wedding and wouldnt hesitate to recommend Solatido for weddings and other important events!”
– Tyler & Leanne

“From booking to planning to the day of, Solatido was amazing to work with.  Their song list is extensive and we were able to pick a song not on the list for our recessional; which they learned and played perfect.  They were professional, punctual and a great add to our ceremony.  I would strongly suggest booking them to add something special to your day.”

“I met the Solatido crew at the wedding fair in Calgary and could tell right away that I was going to book them. The musicians, Matt and Josh, were both full of energy and open to playing a variety of different genres of music, something that I found to be unique when looking for live musicians to play at our wedding as most were purely classical. On the day of our wedding, they were both dressed very professionally, even better than most of our guests! They were punctual, played beautiful music, and was something our guests truly enjoyed. We had them play at both our wedding ceremony as well as a 2 hour cocktail period (while the bridal party was taking offsite photos). They were not only background music but live entertainment to keep our guests entertained during this time. Our guests had nothing but great things to say. The only complaint is that we didn’t get to hear more of Solotido’s music while we were offsite getting photos! We would highly recommend them to anyone looking for live musicians that are both professional yet easy going and willing to accommodate!”

– Kelsey & Steve


“Solatido were beyond incredible! Thank you for providing such a wonderful musical score throughout the ceremony, cocktails, and reception!!”

– Kristin and Claudio Anders

“Matthew and Josh,

Thank you so much for playing at our cocktail hour. Your music is beautiful and I absolutely fell in love with it the first time I heard you play. You helped to make this day everything we could have ever dreamed it to be!

I also want to compliment you guys on your incredible customer service and facilitating our ceremony musicians. Working with you was seamless!


– Colton and Shalyn

“I heard nothing but good things from my guests about the music playing during the reception and ceremony. I was so happy with the music that you played during the ceremony. It was so professional and honestly, so very beautiful. The songs that you played fit the ceremony beautifully, and you took our requests and songs that were very special to us and played them with no problem at all. I loved that so much! Thank you so much for being part of our special day! I have no problem at all referring you guys to anyone that asks about wedding music and entertainment. Cheers!”

– Carmen Temmerman

“If you are hesitating booking Matthew and Josh from Solatido don’t hesitate book now!
Had the guys play for my daughters outdoor wedding on July 2nd and they were amazing!  These two guys can play and play beautifully.  Our guests were so impressed.  The music was beautiful, the sound system outside was perfect.
Would book these guys again in a minute!  Thank you so much.”
– Melody Davis (Bride’s mother)

“Dear Josh & Matt,

We couldn’t be any happier with your performances. I actually missed your music once you left 🙂 Everyone enjoyed the songs you played, and we particularly loved your rendition of “Young & Beautiful” and “Hotline Bling”. Oh how we wish someone was recording you!
The wedding was nothing short of amazing, and that’s partly because of all the people that helped us along the way, and the awesome job that you had done to entertain our guests. YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST! I am honestly very glad that I stumbled upon your Kijiji ad. We will never forget your performance. It just added the perfect touch to the dream wedding we had always envisioned.”
– Rochelly Vidon & Robert O’Brien

Panel 4


Q: What do you mean by “custom” music?


A: We will create arrangements of, and perform the songs of your choice for the wedding party’s processional, bride’s processional, signing of the registry and recessional. This is included in our price, and it is our belief that having music that is meaningful to you really makes the ceremony unique and memorable.


Q: Can we pick any song?


A: Yes, we will consult with you to make sure the pieces chosen will work well with what you have in mind, but we are happy to arrange music of any genre. Of course, our version will still sound like classical violin and guitar music, and will be appropriate for a wedding ceremony.


Q: What is included in your wedding package?


A: We can tailor our package to suit your individual needs, but most commonly we would play for about half an hour prior to the ceremony to entertain guests and to let them know it’s time to make their way to their seats. Then we play for the processional(s), signing of the registry, and recessional, and then usually for about 15 minutes after the ceremony, depending on how long people stick around for.


Q: What are your technical requirements?


A: Not much! We need two armless chairs, and we can’t play directly in the rain. It would be nice to have access to one standard power outlet, but it is also possible for us to run our equipment on batteries, so we can play almost anywhere.


Q: Can you play at our wedding if it is outside of the city?


A: Yes, we can. Following are our travel fees: Banff <$200 incl. park fee> Lake Louise <$280 incl. park fee> Canmore <$150> Airdrie <$75> Okotoks <$75> Cochrane <$50> Chestermere <$50> Elsewhere <please inquire>


Q: What if our ceremony starts late?


A: We do often have more than one booking in a day, so it would depend on our other engagements, but we will make sure you know well in advance if there is going to be a definite cut-off time that we must leave. We only book multiple performances on the same day if there is ample time in between (including extra time for unforeseen circumstances!), so this would rarely be a problem unless your wedding is running extremely late. But if our time allows, we will adjust to your circumstances with charge of $75 for every half hour of overtime.


Q: Do you require a deposit?


A: We do ask for a deposit, and we will agree on the amount based on your package and the amount of time we need to book off for travel, etc.


Q: Do you provide a microphone and P.A. system for our ceremony?


A: We can, but we need to know in advance! We won’t just plug a microphone into our instrument amplification because that will not yield good results. We will give you a quote for this and let you know what the extra power requirements would be after consulting with you about what you would require.


Q: What will you wear to our ceremony?


A: We generally wear black suits with black ties, but some weddings have a theme colour or are ‘casual’ or have other factors, in which case let us know and we can work something out.
