Musician Reviews

Your music takes my breath away.
– Paula H.

My husband received an extraordinary birthday gift, a private concert in our home. Laura and Alex are great to be around, professional, talented and passionate with an extensive repertoire. Their music is elegant, beautiful and inspirational. Simply joyous! Please consider this highly accomplished duo for any and all family celebrations, corporate triumphs and employee milestones, holidays, dinners and parties – any occasion you want to be wildly successful and fun! Top notch!

About a year ago now I sought a music combo suitable for a mini-concert in my home. Among other combos, I found SoSco Duo. They answered my query 🙂 Then COVID hit, so finding an indoor audience was next to impossible. But when Halloween came around I realized that the occasion would be perfect for an outdoor mini concert while the kids went about trick or treating. SoSco Duo was game for the gig! My idea was medieval funeral dirges, but that probably wouldn’t have worked. SoSco Duo adapted beautifully, developing a couple sets that set the mood for my Halloween rig perfectly.

Professional, courteous, pleasant, presentable. They were perfect. Book them. Now.

For the past few years my Christmas gift to my children has been to take them to see a Christmas concert somewhere. Well this year the virus made that a challenge so I brought the concert to them for about the same price. I heard Alex and Laura play at a free Mayo clinic concert in the lobby once. They were awesome! They agreed to play for us in a safe socially distant backyard setting. It was a special evening and almost felt normal again. They ended the set of music we had chosen with their version of What a Wonderful World. As I looked around at my family and enjoyed SoSco’s beautiful music I had to agree it is! I highly recommend this lovely duo for any occasion that calls for the beauty of music!

We were amazed by the song performances, and the arrangements were perfect as well – not too long, and excellent harmonies. We had a relaxing time listening and absorbing the concert. So beautiful. So pure and sweet. It was an experience we will not forget!

We heard about SoSco from a friend. We wanted to have live music for our ceremony and cocktail hour. Laura was our contact person and the first time I met her was the day of the wedding. All of our communication was via email and she was always quick to respond. They were able to do a special song for my walk down the aisle that was a surprise for the groom – it was his favorite part of the entire wedding. They were perfect and I would recommend them to anyone. My biggest regret is that i didn’t get to hear them for the cocktail hour. We are still receiving compliments on their performance.

With over 77 years of experience in fine music (and popular music of the 1940s) I know talent when I hear it. SoSco Duo (Alex and Laura) are superb musicians… the kind you want to perform for your affair.
– James W.

The SoSco Duo are so very entertaining. From the Beatles to Sinatra, or playing their own compositions, these extremely talented musicians provide their listeners wonderful musical enjoyment. For your next social gathering, having the duo of Laura on flute and Alex on guitar will add additional fond memories to the event.
– Dave W.

We hired Laura & Alex for our wedding day! They were WONDERFUL to work with, prompt with responses and easy to reach. We had no idea what kinds of music would work for our ceremony, but Laura helped us pick everything out, and it all turned out exceptional. They have a few samples of songs on their webpage and that was what really put us at ease! We had a family friend tape the wedding, and we were surprised to hear how good the music sounded even through our video recorder (it was a windy day)!! Thank you guys!!

Wedding Ceremony Music
Looking for ceremony musicians for your wedding or elegant dinnertime music? It doesn’t get much better than the SoSco Duo! They were such a special part of our ceremony and literally just what we needed for that extra special, intimate touch. They play everything from the classics to modern day hits and you can customize your list accordingly. They are also SO easy to work with and reliable. I would 100% recommend them for any wedding or special occasion. Thank you for making our ceremony so fabulous, SoSco Duo! 🙂

SoSco was hired for our wedding on April 10th in Sedona! Not only were they willing to travel from Phoenix just for the event (and play in the wind & rain!), but they were so accommodating to the specific wants we had for our special day. We arranged music for them to play as the bride walked down the aisle, which they were happy to play for us! We also left some of the musical choices up to them, and they came up with beautifully appropriate selections for various points in the service. A wonderful duo who are very gracious and a pleasure to work with — not to mention excellent performers and musicians in their own right! We would recommend them to anybody looking for undisputed professionals who work hard to understand the reason behind, and create magic for, life’s special events. Thanks to you both!!

Just wanted you to know how much I enjoyed your joining us yesterday. Needless to say, we loved your performance.  Your choice of music, your ever so tasteful presentation and just the joy you bring to those lucky enough to hear and see you.  I can’t wait until you come back.

I am the Community Concert Coordinator for Paradise Valley United Methodist Church.  My duties include booking entertainment for our concert series. I’m writing to recommend SoSco Duo, an amazing flute and guitar duo based in Scottsdale and consisting of Laura Strickland and Alex Mack. I recently experienced a concert with them and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. They perform a variety of music that is suitable either as background music or as a concert. From Celtic to Italian to American folk and from classical to movie themes, there was something for everyone in the audience. The combination of flute and Spanish guitar gives an interesting color to favorite music. One of the frustrations of coordinating some musicians is the lack of communication.  Laura never leaves me wondering! Having musicians that communicate well, are on time, beautifully attired and well organized is a real plus.  Thanks SoSco!  
– Monica S.

Laura and Alex play beautifully together! They created the perfect ambiance for our event. Very elegant and tasteful. We received several compliments from our guests. You will be delighted – I promise!!
– Leigh S.

SoSco guitar and flute was amazing. I am the Activity Director at a senior living community in Goodyear AZ. I had them come to play and entertain for our residents that range from independent to memory care. The music was beautiful and very relaxing. My residents loved the classical concert and have asked for more. I was very impressed with their professionalism and the care they showed our residents. I would highly recommend them for any and all Venues. Thank you SoSco. We look forward to having you back in December.
– Kandie D.

Laura and Alex sound so amazing, even better than on their website! I had a great experience working with Laura and Alex. From booking to the actual performance, they were easy to work with! I used them for a performance for a group of patients at the hospital I work at and the patients loved their music as well as the atmosphere they provided!
– Amanda M.

I recently hired SoSco Duo to come and perform at our Arizona Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics event. This was a well-attended event of over 100 people. This lively duo arrived early to set up and were a delight. The music was beautifully played and selections were appropriate, fun, and made for a thoroughly enjoyable gathering. They worked together very well and without them being there, I suspect initial interactions would have been less jovial and open. I would highly recommend this duo to anyone.
– Cody C.

We hired SoSco Duo to play at an outdoor fundraiser for us. They were extremely professional and easy to work with. After the event, we received lots of compliments about how beautiful the music was. Both Laura (flute) and Alex (guitar) are wonderful musicians, and the music complemented the event without overwhelming it. Would definitely recommend them!
– Louis M.

Their music is perfect for background music in any event. Their communication is tip top and much appreciated. When they arrive, they arrive as scheduled and ready to go always dressed professionally.
– Sarah S.

They were lovely to listen to and provided a nice arrangement of different styles of music.

If you enjoy listening to professional classical music, then you will enjoy the flute and guitar duo Laura and Alex bring.  We had residents who rarely engage with others attend the beautiful melodies Laura and Alex perform and all we saw were happy, restful souls quietly relaxing as they were transcended to a very happy place.

They provided elegant background music for an all ladies luncheon. I loved their sound from the demos on the internet. Their sound was perfect. It was lovely and a wonderful way to kick off the holidays. Very professional, attractive, and talented. 
– Janice G.

We recently had SoSco Duo, flute and guitar, perform at our library here in Sun Lakes, Arizona. Laura and Alex performed a wonderful set of holiday music. The audience of 94 adults. mostly seniors, was extremely receptive and many commented on how much they enjoyed the variety of tunes and the musical talent. Everyone exited with a smile after the performance.

Laura was very easy to work with in booking, and was extremely professional and responsive to any and all questions. I highly recommend Laura and Alex, and hope to welcome them back at some point in the future.
– Patty D.

A very talented duo. We had the true pleasure of having SoSco Flute & Guitar Duo perform for our senior community entertainment night. The talent was excellent and the residents truly enjoyed it. We would most definitely have them return!
– Chris W.

Honestly, this duet made for the most amazing wedding ceremony we could have ever dreamed of. They are eager to learn and customize your event to make it perfect. I am a combat veteran and rarely see performers so willing and capable in their field. They enjoy what they do and it shows. All of their hard work, dedication and practice will surly please you as much as it did for my wife and I. Thank you again SoSco for the perfect evening.
– Zach R.

Laura and Alex are not only the sweetest people; their music is so beautiful! Love the flute and guitar together, and this is so extra special hearing it live. I highly recommend SoSco!

This duo performed at a senior community and were very professional and easy going with the residents. Easy listening music that everyone could enjoy!
– Lynn W.

Recently, Sosco Duo perform at our community. The feedback I received from our residents was very positive, and they requested to have them for a return performance. They were very professional and performed with a high degree of skill. The blend of the flute and guitar complimented each other beautifully. A talented duo! We are looking forward to seeing them return.
-Terri L.

Our residents truly enjoy the outstanding music of SoSco Flute & Guitar Duo. Our feedback was unanimous! Everyone truly loved the music! Thank you for putting smiles on our resident’s faces.
