  • Wonderful to work with!! Very talented musicians. My wedding was just over a year ago and I still get compliments to this day on the music. I actually was just reminiscing on our wedding and their beautiful music and realized I failed to write a review after the wedding but I without a doubt know that choosing them was one of the best choices we made. Highly recommend!!

  • Planning a wedding from out of state is very stressful, so it was so nice to have such a huge part of it be so uncomplicated and pleasant to arrange. Chrissie and Jimmy Joe were so nice, so talented, and even learned 2 new songs for our ceremony to surprise my husband. We actually ended up booking them for the cocktail hour and reception as well. The guests loved the music as much as we did.

  • The Better Halves played at our small ceremony at Chapel Dulcinea in south Austin. We were really looking for music that was simple but that we would be able to personalize to represent us. They offer a wonderful variety of music to select from (modern pop, classic, movie themes, folk, jazz), and were willing to learn new songs for us if requested. They were accommodating in meeting with us and discussing our needs, were prompt with responses, and performed beautifully. I would definitely recommend them to other couples. =)

  • Chrissie and Jimmy Joe truly helped bring our ceremony to life. The music they played was beautiful and they even took on learning a special song for us. So glad they were there to share the day with us!

  • We had The Better Halves play our ceremony music for our riverboat wedding and are SO happy we chose them!! Both Jimmy Joe and Chrissie are very talented, professional and easy to work with. Chrissie was very prompt at communicating with me via email and answered all of my silly questions! We had a couple of special requests and they easily accommodated them. Our guests commented on how beautiful the ceremony music was. Their price was extremely fair and they did not charge us extra for being "stuck" on the boat for a couple hours afterward. They are a precious couple. I would hire them again in a heartbeat!! Thanks Better Halves :)

  • Instrumental music for our wedding ceremony was perfect. We were able to choose from an extensive song list which included many cover tunes and The Better Halves original tunes as well. They worked with us to plan just the right music for each event throughout the day. I was particularly pleased to have a tune from my favorite movie, "The Princess Bride" performed a few times that day.

  • The Better Halves provided music for our small wedding ceremony. We were attracted to their folksy, sincere style and we loved that they were so flexible in learning and playing popular and non-traditional tunes. Additionally, they were easy to work with, communicative, and professional. The music they played was a huge hit with everybody at the wedding--it felt very special. If you're looking for music for your event, they won't disappoint.

  • The Natoli's were awesome. They had other events scheduled when we first approached them to do our music. They moved things around to be able to play for us. They were very organized and worked with the officiant and the wedding party to make sure everything went smoothly. They were a very bright spot in our wonderful day.

  • When planning our wedding ceremony, we wanted to incorporate live music and a few of our favorite songs, but didn't know if it was possible to have both. It was with The Better Halves! Chrissie and Jimmy learned and performed acoustic renditions of some special songs for us, which made our ceremony extra meaningful. They arrived early on our wedding day and were kind, flexible and played beautifully. Since we had an outdoor ceremony, we were a bit worried about the music carrying, but they came fully prepared with a battery-powered PA. Thanks, Chrissie and Jimmy! And to all the brides-to-be, you can't go wrong with hiring The Better Halves for your wedding.

  • The Better Halves played in the garden for a Science event and were flexible to even change locations mid-performance. Kids and adults really enjoyed their music. They were great to work with!

  • The Better Halves are wonderful! We booked them to play during our ceremony and cocktail hour, and they were amazing! I first found out about them online and fell in love with their folksy music style. I met them at a farmer’s market and they were incredibly kind and gracious. They’re a very sweet husband and wife duo. For our wedding, they learned two brand new songs (“Modern Nature” by Sondre Lerche and “Picture in a Frame” by Tom Waits) as part of our booking, and they did an amazing job! They also played a beautiful version of “Angel Dream” by Tom Petty, as well as a range of folk and country songs, all instrumental. They arrived early to set-up, and they were very well dressed and professional during the ceremony. I loved how relaxed and serene they helped to make the wedding, and I don’t think it could have been any lovelier. They price was more than reasonable, and I would book them again if I had to do it over again. I absolutely recommend them for an... Read more

  • PHENOMENAL! This duo is incredible! My husband and I chose to do a Beatles-only ceremony and Chrissie and Jimmy Joe went above and beyond to learn all the songs we requested. For our cocktail hour, Chrissie and Jimmy Joe played classic rock love songs. Amazing. These two are TALENTED! I still can't get over that they fit in our price range. They could get away with charging 10 times what they do-- they are that good. If you are looking for musicians for any events, look no further. I am so happy we have Chrissie and Jimmy Joe playing at our wedding.

  • From the Yellow Rose of Texas to Hey Good Look'in to some of their own unique twists on vocals Better Halves Musicians -Chrissie and Jimmy Joe Natoli- are just what every bride needs a bit of at her wedding! Looking for something different for my Country Chic wedding at Thurman's Mansion/Salt Lick and searched and searched and even though they were hard to find I am hoping this yelp review makes it easier for everyone else to enjoy their music! These two play classics, will write you your own song, or anything you want. They play several instruments for whatever your style is. I asked for banjo and guitar-lively festive music, but not deliverance type banjo and they nailed it! I mostly communicated with Chrissie who is delightful, detailed oriented, and professional. They worked within my time and budget constraints. They played our ceremony music as well as through our cocktail hour where they sang. The guests were very delighted as was I. Her communication and performa... Read more

  • Mr. and Mrs. Natoli are accomplished, professional, versatile musicians who are also quite personable and down-to-earth people. They are able to perform with various combinations of instruments, but are not limited to instrumentals since they are vocalists too, with a lovely two part harmony. They can perform the standard repertoire according to tradition if you want, but they also have unique arrangements that let you hear familiar works like you've never heard them before (a great swing version of Bach's Toccata and Fugue in Dm) and they are usually willing to learn something new just for you (Final Fantasy Victory Fanfare, anyone?). A+
