I am a native Oregonian. So native that my grandparents lived on a Century Farm in the Willamette Valley. Before that, some of my grandmother’s relatives came over on a covered wagon! There were roughly 300 guests at my own wedding because how could I not invite the community who nurtured me and helped me be the person I am today?
Whether you are a native Oregonian planning your hometown wedding or you’ve been drawn to our beautiful state by the mountains, the ocean, the coffee and the wine, you should know that there is one troupe of musicians who will fearlessly travel to just about anywhere to make the audio match the visual: check out our video as proof!
It has been a really enjoyable year for us at Effesenden so far. Being able to play creative music for people who really value our attention to detail, quality and customer service has been highly satisfying. Since our best form of advertising is the positive experiences of our clients, here is sampling of their responses.
