More information about Beats & Cello

Beats & Cello know how to entertain an aperitif with their modern duo formula of cello, guitar and voices.

They both sing, female and male voices. The duo sings in English, Italian and, if desired, French.

The songs in the repertoire are classy, never predictable and always arranged. Importantly, in live performances they don't use audio backing tracks.

At dinner and lunch they can help you with speeches through the use of wi-fi microphones and powerful wireless battery-powered speakers. Their rule is to always follow the spouses and collaborate with the WPs present.

At the open bar it's time for the Beats & Cello cello show, the DJ set with cello that plays over commercial and classic songs of any age. The musical genre can be customised together with the spouses.

We can mount up to 3 audio/light systems in the same location.

We are frequently engaged to perform at various prestigious venues across Italy for weddings and events.

These venues include Castello di Petrata in Umbria, renowned worldwide for hosting prestigious weddings, Villa Aurelia and Castello della Spizzichina in Rome, Castello di Rosciano and Posta dei Donini in Umbria, Borgo Lucignanello and Borgo di Pietrafitta in Tuscany, Colcaprile and Forte Sorgnano in Umbria, Villa Le Mura, Villa Montefreddo, and Montenero Castle in Umbria, Villa Pordenovo in Siena, San Galgano Abbey and San Pietro in Assisi in Tuscany, Hotel Bramante in Todi, and Agriturismo San Pietro Aquaeortus, Cantina Antonelli, and Cantina Colsanto in Umbria, among others. These venues have received rave reviews for weddings from around the globe, including countries such as France, America, England, Spain, China, and Italy.

"They are fantastic, they played both at the church and for the aperitif. As for the disco, they were super fun and super lively. I recommend their service from the beginning to the end of the wedding."

"We celebrated our wedding on Saturday at the Petrata Castle with them, the amazing guitar, cello & DJ duo who livened up the party until the cake cutting. Federico was immediately extremely helpful, welcoming us twice in order to plan everything, especially because we were a bit ignorant on the subject and wanted to have the symbolic ceremony at the castle. He gave us a thousand tips, guided us and proposed various alternatives, reassuring us that they would take care of everything. Not only did they patiently fulfil our requests, but with their music they thrilled everyone present during the ceremony, and made the lunch fun and lively by changing the pace. Exemplary professionals and exquisite people, we highly recommend them to everyone. Both phenomenal, she is poetic with the cello."

"Federico and his team are absolutely phenomenal, offering outstanding service at reasonable prices. We hired him for our wedding in Italy and couldn't be happier. If you don't speak Italian, don't worry. His English is excellent. He handled all our pre-wedding inquiries professionally and promptly."

"Matteo and I chose Beats & Cello for our wedding and we would definitely do it again! Federico was very helpful in adapting the music service to our needs. We chose the Duo for the aperitif and cake cutting/dessert buffet. Federico and Mathilde are very good, delicate and engaging at the same time. For lunch we opted for a playlist played, Federico was always there available to satisfy the guests' requests. Finally, Federico always made us go wild during the party with the DJ set. We were able to choose the type of music first, but Federico was very good at changing it depending on the reaction of the guests. All the guests had a blast and we danced the whole time!"

"Thanks again to Beats & Cello, for the fabulous music at our wedding ceremony and aperitivo. They were brilliant to deal with, very flexible and a joy to have on our day. The atmosphere they set was beautiful, the music really added a lovely touch to the ceremony. They are both very talented musicians, all our guests were very complementary of the duo and noted how beautiful the music was. They were very flexible in learning a few songs we requested for the ceremony, which were perfect on the day. Just simply beautiful - I would 100% recommend them again to anyone and wish we could hire them again and again! They are both truly lovely and genuine people and it was a pleasure to have them play at our wedding. Grazie mille!!"

"We chose them for our wedding and we were very happy to enrich and make our celebration day special with their music. Having well-defined musical tastes and music being very important in our lives, we wanted something that suited us perfectly and so it was. We asked for a song outside their repertoire for our first dance and they satisfied us with availability and professionalism. The playlists created are also perfect. We recommend them 100%"

"We relied on this fantastic team for the entire duration of our wedding... from the ceremony to the evening party. It was all wonderful! A perfect musical accompaniment. Federico fully understood our tastes and personalised every single part of the day, as we requested, with our favorite songs. To say that they are very good and professional is truly an understatement."

"Beats & Cello did not disappoint our expectations! They were able to quickly and professionally manage last minute changes (change of location due to bad weather) and managed to fill even some small unexpected breaks with emotion! They surprised us by offering to accompany the moment of cutting the cake with background music, without us having requested it beforehand. The DJ with Cello moment was very nice and the final song closed the day in style!"

"Excellent musicians and very nice people. We contacted Federico to have the Beats & Cello show at our wedding and Federico was very kind, flexible and helpful, he came to meet us and satisfied all our requests and needs! The wedding was certainly a success also thanks to them, who played divinely and accompanied us throughout the evening and night with smiles and joy! I absolutely recommend them for DJ and ceremony."

"Beats & Cello are a versatile and classy acoustic duo. Theirs is a vast musical repertoire that ranges from classical to modern. The elegance and style of Beats & Cello are unique and are the result of their very high musical training. Mathilde on the cello and Federico on the guitar give new life to the scores of the great authors of the past and our time. Their voices are authentic and harmoniously complement the pieces they propose. On our wedding day they gave us a magical atmosphere, both in the church and at the reception. Without their notes and their voices our wedding would not have been the same. They are a duo in work and in life, they exude understanding and love. This is their secret that makes everything magnificent!"

"After 3 years waiting to get married due to covid 19 federico was just brilliant throughout the whole experience of planning, always responded to my emails quickly and always kept me up to date. Our wedding was perfect and they made it extra special. The music they played was so authentic and really gave the atmosphere we wanted for our special day. We could not fault them at all. The DJ for the evening was also fabulous, he continued playing songs until the early hours and even at the end when he had finished he played music on his phone while he was tidying up for our guests. Such lovely people, thank you again for making our day special."

"A truly exceptional couple of guys, available, approachable and professional! They helped us a lot in the choices and organization of the entire event, always trying to meet our requests. The guitar/cello pairing in our church was delightful, they managed to create an intimate yet distinct atmosphere. At the reception they then cheered everyone up with background music and at the right time even with a bit of "pepperiness", creating a perfect atmosphere for an "aperice dinner". Last, but not least, the visual impact: just see them playing together, Federico with his guitar and a slightly "cheeky" look, the very refined Mathilde with her beautiful cello, they immediately convey a feeling of complicity that blends perfectly with the emotions of that day. Seeing them play together warmed our hearts even more on our special day. Thank you, thank you, thank you so much for everything! Highly recommended to everyone, you won't regret it!"

"We were very happy with hiring Beats & Cello for our wedding. They played beautifully, both at the church and at our wedding reception, and were very friendly, positive and reliable. We also liked their professional attitude, and we were particularly impressed with their interpretation of a traditional Norwegian song! We warmly recommend these talented and warm musicians, that we now consider our new friends!"

"I came across this band by chance, and I immediately fell in love with it! I was sure they were good, having seen their videos. But live they exceeded my expectations! They were also very kind and helpful, they were able to adapt without problems to the weather of the day and to the different locations, despite having seen them for the first time right at the moment of the wedding. They made the ceremony magical and animated the aperitif time perfectly: just say that some guests have specifically asked us for their contacts!"
