About Bella River Duo

Premier Contemporary Duo | Available to book now for your private events
Acoustic duo
Public liability insurance of £1 million

After hundreds of performances, and over 50 countries visited, it's no wonder Natalie & Rich have a repertoire of 400+ songs to show for it. Collecting each one along the way, all of their thoughtful arrangements of so many beloved classic and modern hits has a real human connection and unique story behind their selection. In 2020, they returned to the UK from a three-year residency in Osaka, where they were hired by Japan's premier wedding & events company Escrit Inc. to perform at weddings and private events across the city. Previously they have worked for many of the hospitality industries' leading companies including, Hilton Hotels & Resorts, Celebrity Cruises, Crystal Cruises, Carnival, and Australian Pacific Touring. They have supported & shared the stage with the likes of Billy Ocean, ABC, Alexandra Burke, Tony Hadley, Rick Astley, as well as appearing at many prestigious events, including at the Formula 1 Grand Prix Qualifying at Silverstone, Arsenal Emirates Football Stadium, and Hyde Park for the London 2012 Olympics. Bella River is now available to perform for your own event. Whether it is a wedding celebration, private party, or corporate function, their unique blend of live-lounge acoustic style arrangements and compact alternative to a full party band makes them the perfect choice.

Bella River Duo came to play at an evening garden party for my birthday. And they were amazing!! Right from the beginning, they were a pleasure to deal with. Rich was very responsive and helpful with all the organisation. Their choice of songs on the night was perfect; they created exactly the vibe I wanted. Natalie's voice is breathtaking. I cannot recommend them highly enough!!

Natalie and Rich (Bella River Duo) were just brilliant. They were recommended to us by a friend who had seen and heard them at a Wedding. We were so pleased that they were able to provide entertainment at our Wedding on 18/2/23. Our guests have since commented and praised how beautifully they sang and played, with an inspired choice of music and songs. They were very accommodating and played in different locations, during our Ceremony. Wedding Reception and they were the link to the evening entertainment. They played and sang our chosen song which they adapted perfectly for the occasion. They kept our guests enterained playing expertly across a wide range of songs. We would recommend Natalie and Rich (Della River Duo) at any event. Money well spent.

We highly recommend Passengers Party Duo for any celebratory occasion. I am delighted we chose them to perform at our wedding. They were thoroughly professional but at the same time entered wholeheartedly into the spirit of the occasion. The standard of the singing and playing was excellent, the range of songs covered was extremely impressive. Brilliant.

We intended passengers to play some beautiful modern music, as an acoustic duo, at our wedding reception while our guests were mingling; they did just that! They arrived promptly and discreetly and we're ready to play on time. They were brilliant! And they also deconflicted neatly with another band which was ideal. Thank you so much. We would definitely use Bella River again.
