Wedding, Cocktail Hour, Party Performance Song List

Long Island Acoustics is an acoustic guitar duo that specializes in instrumental fingerstyle guitar performance for weddings, cocktail hours, bar/bat Mitzvahs, Engagement parties and other special occasions.

However, with over 60 years of combined musical experience this acoustic guitar duo can tailor its song list for almost any occasion. Including vocals and up tempo numbers LI Acoustics has something for everyone. When we are not performing instrumentals at at Wedding Reception you might just find us at your local pub/restaurant.

Note: The Long Island Acoustics Guitar Duo performs in a variety of venues for many different types of parties. Not all songs are appropriate for every type of occasion.  What is performed at your cocktail hour is completely different from what is performed at your surprise birthday party. No need to worry...Your performance will be tailored to meet the requirements of your event.
