Sympatico - spelled with a 'y' to represent two people in sync with each other.
We are a duet team with a wide range of musical interests probably best described as "Americana" if you need a definition. We started out entertaining assisted living, memory care and skilled nursing residents. We have now expanded to home concerts, wineries, tap rooms - anywhere that good music would fit to make people happy.
Our goal is to bring joy to the soul and happiness to the heart of our listeners. We can provide themed music that is tailor-made to meet your special activities. We love our audience to sing along with us and get involved, so that they share a positive and memorable experience with us and our music.
We are equipped to perform with a high quality Bose Sound System for larger venues as well as unplugged acoustic sets for smaller settings.
