Yes, we own arrangements for all the wedding music for each set of instruments. In some cases, the music sounds better as a quartet! Please contact us for further information.

The string quartet provides the most fullness of sound and the most volume. The trio and duo are a great way to accommodate a smaller ceremony or venue and fit the budget.

Listening to a recording of your favorite song and listening to a live performance is completely different. There is nothing that can replace hearing and seeing your favorite band perform live! Only live musicians deliver the ambience and excitement to make your event truly memorable. Live musicians also incorporate themselves into the event and can accommodate changes as they happen.

Every ceremony is unique and special. Traditionally, there is music for the prelude, the processional, between readings, during a unity candle or sand ceremony, and for the recessional, Catholic ceremonies require more music and preparation.

You can pay with a check, cash, or credit card. We accept credit cards through Paypal or in-person only.

We can not always guarantee our availability after the contract, but we will stay as schedules allow. We allow approximately 15 minutes of grace period in case of a late start. Please feel free to ask the group leader 10-15 minutes before the performance's conclusion.

Yes, we can accompany a soloist. Depending on the complexity of the music chosen, we may rehearse before the prelude music or schedule a separate rehearsal.
