20 Musical Duos Who Rock Our World & A Cheeky Kissing Quiz
As a two piece wedding band, we're massively inspired by the powerful chemistry and presence that some of our favourite duos embody. Their intimacy and yin-yang is almost tangible when you watch these guys performing harmoniously together.
Whether united by family, love or friendship, we can't help but think that these twosomes are super lucky to have been fated together. From our own humble experience, we know that to be one of two musical halves can make us feel entirely whole as musicians, and with that gorgeous things have happened which may never have emerged for us as solo performers, or within a bigger group, and I imagine that's the same for a lot of musical partnerships.
