Once Upon a Time…

In a world of melodies, where whimsy meets strings,
There blossomed a duo, oh, what joy they bring!
M and J, a pair dapper and merry,
In the land of Acoustic, their tunes did ferry.

From coffee shops to fields of green,
Dapper Whimsy created a musical scene.
With M’s voice, like a sweet lullaby,
And J’s guitar and kick, oh gosh, oh my!

Pop covers they jammed on, with a bluegrass flair,
Turning each song into a magical musical affair.
In the moonlit nights and the sunlit days,
Dapper Whimsy enchants wherever they play.

So, if you’re wandering past and in need of a song,
This duo’s got you covered so just hum along.
With laughter and chords come on clap your hands,
The Dapper Whimsy is at your command!

Why the Humming Bird?

Across many cultures, the hummingbird is seen as a messenger of joy, love, courage, good luck, and hope. It is a swift and energetic creature that feeds off of the sweet nectar of life. This beautifully colorful being may be tiny but is incredibly mighty in character and spirit. May it bestow upon you and yours the gifts of positivity, good grooves, and celebration.

TRULY EXCEPTIONAL EXPERIENCE! J and M were wonderful to work with! They helped me pull off a surprise song serenade for my best friend’s wedding. Everything went so smoothly. They were exceptional at their communication and so thoughtful in the care and time they took to arrange the song requested. They are both professional and punctual and incredibly talented! Their voices just harmonize so well together it was just beautiful to hear them sing and play the guitar and melodica. They have such a lovely presence and I could not be happier with how things went.
