Songbird Vocal Piano Duo (ceremony)

Dave was great to work with in all phases and communications prior to our wedding day. The day of –Dave, his wife, and the songs/music were all pitch perfect. I highly recommend this duo to any bride/groom seeking classy, professional, beautiful music performance at their wedding.

Songbird Vocal Piano Duo (ceremony)

I can’t say enough great things about David and his wife, Kim! David played the piano and Kim sung at our wedding ceremony. We had a very traditional catholic ceremony and David worked with our priest to ensure the order of the mass/ceremony was perfect. Kim has the most beautiful voice! She sung Ave Maria while I was walking down the aisle and it was absolutely beautiful! I highly recommend the “Songbird Duo” with David and Kim.

 

 

Dave and Kim form a great husband and wife vocal piano team.  Her crystal clear vocals will gives your audience chills. CLICK HERE for more info and to Listen to Samples!

Ceremony, Piano 

we hired Dave to play at our wedding ceremony and we weren't disappointed! He did such a great job - I liked that we were able to talk through all the details of the ceremony beforehand via e-mail so there would be no unexpected surprises. He had a wide selection of music to choose from and I felt confident choosing him for the wedding. Thank you so much Dave!

Ceremony Piano 

David was my pianist for my wedding ceremony this last October. He was incredibly professional throughout the planning process and always responded to emails/calls quickly (within the day). David was very straight forward and easy to work with. He learned a new song for us that wasn’t on his original list and did it flawlessly. He was able to adapt to the ceremony as needed and really did a wonderful job. I would recommend him to any other brides/grooms for their wedding day. David is reliable, professional, and a wonderful musician.

Ceremony Piano

Dave was a fantastic addition to our wedding ceremony in St Louis. His wedding music added a classy touch to the ceremony. He attended the rehearsal, and quickly offered advice when we struggled with some of the details as we did not have a coordinator. He offered lots of suggestions on wedding music selection, and also gave a list of songs to choose from, and even offered to learn and play any new songs we requested (for the cost of sheet music). We were on a tight budget for the wedding, Dave delivered above and beyond the amount we paid . I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a pianist for their wedding or cocktail hour.

Ceremony Piano 

My husband and I waited until the last minute to figure out the music for our ceremony. I started looking just two weeks out and someone recommended Dave. He was very accommodating to our requests. He was on time, professional, and did a beautiful job (we had many compliments)! I couldn’t believe how great he and the vocalist did considering he received our music requests just one week from the wedding. Thank you so much for being one of the few vendors who did NOT cause us stress during such a busy time!

Songbird Duo – Reception

Dave and wife Kim, Thank you from the bottom of my heart. You were both just wonderful. You made our wedding even more special and romantic than we envisioned . The tracks on your St. Louis Songbird website don’t even begin to do justice to how great you sound together in person. You made our wedding so memorable for all the right reasons. So many of your songs were things that my dad and I used to sing together at the piano, which added to the nostalgic feeling of our wedding. Thank you so much for being a part of our special day.

Piano Cello Duo, Ceremony –

For me music has always been an important part in any wedding. It sets the tone. It makes the wedding memorable or not. As for my daughter's recent wedding in St Louis, Dave Becherer, piano playing far exceeded anyone’s expectations to a most memorable ceremony music! There wasn’t a dry eye in the church ! The beauty of his playing the piano with his fellow musician on the cello to the song of “A thousand years” flawlessly with her entrance will always be that one beautiful moment forever in our memory of that day.
From the very beginning choosing Dave Becherer was the easiest and best decision. At a the time when making so many decision’s becomes overwhelming,stressful, and difficult for your big day. Dave made the ceremony music selection suddenly exciting , relaxing, and absolutely delightful. He was by far a breath of fresh air with not only his amazing talent for playing the piano but for his wit, his sense of humor, and confidence in his performance. His large array of music selections and abilities to preform those effortlessly at a drop of a hat is unbelievable ! He will not disappoint you. I can’t say enough about his knowledge, experience, and help in assisting with the selection of music that fits the brides idea’s of the wedding she wants portrayed. He will also give the bride the opportunity to not only have him play the piano but offer fellow musicians to play along if so requested.

Dave Becherer is affordable, professional , and plays every song to perfection. A huge bonus with Dave was he did not only play piano at the ceremony itself but he also played piano at the cocktail hour prior to the dinner reception. What a class act.
I truly felt he made a huge impact at making my daughters fairy tail wedding come true that day! I strongly recommend him for any bride to be. He far exceeded our expectations ! I only welcome the chance to work with him again given the opportunity. I can’t thank Dave enough for such a successful wedding!

Ceremony Piano-

David did an amazing job at our wedding in St. Louis. He played a variety of classic, pop, and jazz pieces through the course of the night. He was extremely professional, prompt, and easy to work with. I would recommend David to anyone looking for a talented pianist.

Jill Weinrich

Bride

Ceremony Pianist

Dave was beyond amazing! First of all, we had a short time-frame in planning our wedding and Dave learned new songs that were important to us very quickly. Every step of the way, he was awesome to work with . .always very professional, and very genuine . He appreciated that it was our special day and he helped to make it just that! He was happy to work with my daughter, who wanted to sing a song for us during the ceremony, and it came off beautifully.

We had planned an outdoor candlelight ceremony in a wine garden, and Dave showed up to a hot and humid day and set up as we took photos, sweating it out with the wedding party. Then a storm blew through just as guests were arriving. Dave went above and beyond, quickly moving his equipment inside to use the Plan B, due to the weather. And then after the storm passed through fairly quickly, we asked him to move everything back outside because that was the ceremony that we had really dreamed about . . . and he did it all with a smile. After getting wet with sweat, and then with rain, he played beautiful music that absolutely made the ceremony all that we had dreamed it could be. It was beautifully personal and emotional.

I am so happy that Dave was a part of our special day . . . his music, his professionalism and his commitment to our vision meant so much to us both, and to everyone in our families … Jill Weinrich

Jazz Piano Trio, Reception  

Dave and his jazz trio added such a lovely tone to our wedding cocktail hour and reception. If you are looking to add a classy and tasteful sound to your atmosphere, look no further. Throughout the planning process and the wedding night, Dave and his trio were very professional and friendly. Our wedding guests were so impressed by their musicianship and vibe. As a wedding vendor, he is very flexible and easy to reach, which is always comforting!

Piano – Violin Duo, Ceremony –

It was a pleasure to work with Dave. He and his violinist played for our son’s wedding at the 9th Street Abbey. The music was absolutely beautiful and everything went smoothly. Dave attended the rehearsal on Thursday which made us feel very comfortable and confident for the wedding ceremony. I would highly recommend Dave as a pianist because of his wonderful musical abilities, his professionalism and also his reasonable prices. You will not regret your choice!

April Cook

Bride

Ceremony Pianist-

We didn’t want to make a big huff and puff at our wedding with some sort of string quartet or anything too fancy. We were having a pretty non-traditional wedding, but still wanted some professional music. I found Dave on The Knot, but once I went to his website and heard his cover of Ben Fold’s “The Luckiest”, I knew he was our guy. He was willing to negotiate on the pricing and help us out with both the ceremony and cocktail hour and played almost all modern hits instead of stuffy old marches and whatnot. He even accommodated my processional request that wasn’t in his repertoire. Overall, he did his job and he did it wonderfully. Well done.

Songbird Duo, Reception–

a lifetime memory for all involved . I was astounded by their talent and tireless performance. Had it not been such a special occasion with so many people I hadn’t seen in so long, I would have loved just sitting back and listening. Your set mix was just right.

Dave’s playing was imaginative and flawless in execution. Kim’s voice is clear, effortless and tireless. Every word came through. They gave us long, honest sets. We couldn’t have had more minutes of music if we had gone recorded.

Jazz Pianist – Holiday Party

You were fantastic at our holiday party! Our guests loved the piano playing and it was the perfect cap to making this a successful party. You are really easy to work with and very affordable for the quality of playing you do . My wife and I look forward to the next time you can entertain our guests with your magnificent skills.

Nicole Beli

Bride

Ceremony Pianist-

I decided to have just a pianist play at my ceremony. I was more than pleased with Dave’s performance. He has an abundance of songs to choose from and he plays them so well. I had no idea what I wanted before I went to Dave’s website, after looking through the list a few times I knew exactly what I wanted. I emailed him and he was so helpful and easy to work with . Choosing to have Dave Becherer be your pianist is an excellent choice and I would recommend him to any of my family and friends!

Ceremony Pianist– Perfection!

Dave was our pianist for our wedding ceremony, and it couldn’t have been more perfect! Our wedding started 45 minutes late due to traffic and he played for our guests the entire time, which was possible with his amazing repertoire We have received so many compliments on Dave’s music, some saying it was their favorite part of the ceremony ! We highly, highly recommend Dave for your wedding or special event!

Songbird Duo – Private Event –

I hired the Songbird to perform at a retirement party for one of my husband’s partners (a jazz enthusiast.) With little direction from me, they put together a wonderful playlist and performed it impeccably; it was the perfect touch to a great evening . The guest of honor as well as the rest of the party commented on what a great job David and Kim did and I had to agree! They are prompt, professional and, most of all, very talented. I will definitely hire them again in the future!

Ceremony and Cocktail Pianist-

Dave was wonderful. He came to the rehearsal on Friday night which is where we met and went over the last minute details. The wedding ceremony was flawless and he was very easy to work with. Dave also played jazz piano at the cocktail hour which everyone really enjoyed . I was very pleasd with his services and professionalism. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a pianist for their event.

Ceremony Pianist, Jazz Pianist with trio for reception –

Dave Becherer did a fabulous job as a musician/pianist at our wedding. He played the wedding music, which included several special requests. Then he and his piano trio GREAT energetic jazz during our reception dinner . It made for a very high class evening . We received compliments all night about how great the music sounded and the lively atmosphere that was provided by the pianist. Thanks Dave!!

Kristen Speckart

Bride

Ceremony Pianist–

I was having a problem finding someone to sing and play a musical instrument for my wedding. The problem was I wanted unique songs that are not typically used for a wedding. I was actually referred to Dave by my cousin (a fellow musician). When speaking to him he was completely laid back . I was extremely satisfied with Dave at our wedding. He is extremely talented and professional. I hand picked many of the songs for my ceremony and his wife (with a beautiful voice) sang the newly learned songs with no problem at all. I would use them again in a heart beat.

Songbird Duo, Ceremony –

Dave Becherer and his wife, Kim, performed at our daughter’s September 1, 2013 wedding enhancing the day through their musical talents and personal service. They are both very nice and professional and played for extended periods with very few breaks. The selections were perfect for the style of wedding we had. My husband and I would highly recommend them and feel that they were very reasonably priced for the amount of time they gave us. Dave and Kim made this special day even more special!

Erin Morrow

Songbird Duo, Ceremony –

Dave and Kim – the Songbird Duo, performed at my wedding this month. They were awesome and I’m so happy I contacted them.. I sent Kim the list of songs in my ceremony and she was very good about asking questions and making sure everything was the way I wanted it. After the ceremony I had a lot of compliments about the beautiful wedding music (both the piano and vocals).

Dave and his bass player played our wedding rehearsal reception at the Governor’s Mansion in Springfield. They were splendid. Knew a million songs, captured a million moods. Everyone loved the music and I couldn’t recommend anyone more highly to someone looking for a pianist..

Working with Dave for our wedding was a pleasure. His website includes an extensive list of songs in his repertoire. Our experience was exactly as advertised . Dave attended our rehearsal on Friday and performed beautifully at our wedding. If you choose Dave as your wedding pianist you will not be disappointed!

Mr. Becherer, the addition of your musical style and talent really added a touch of class to our wedding and reception. You were a joy to communicate with, and we really appreciated your willingness to learn the repertoire of songs we asked you to play. Everything went off without a hitch, and that is in large part due to your expertise and professionalism . Thanks again!

Ceremony Pianist –

Dave played the piano at our wedding ceremony at The Old Post Office downtown. He was present for the rehearsal which was the first time we met; it reassured me for the ceremony the following day. The ceremony and wedding music went off without a hitch, which is all a bride can ask for on her wedding day. Working with Dave was stress-free, simple, and affordable . I definitely recommend Dave to anyone in need of a ceremony pianist…

Dave was a great addition to the party. His repertoire was appropriate and very much as expected from listening to his examples on his website . I will certainly call him again.
