Greetings! We do weddings and ceremonies of all kinds!

“I told my cousin that my husband and I thought that you guys were the bargain of our whole wedding. We may make this our wedding gift to them. Your music is something that every girl should have on her wedding day!”

Our ‘About’ is about you, really. Our goal is to take excellent care of our client, from start to finish. You are the reason we exist as a group which is to perform for your wedding or special event. We want to know how you envision your live music and then we want to create an ambience as beautiful and memorable as you’d wish it for yourself and your guests.

I will personally handle all of the communications before your event and so there will be no confusion or conflicts of information. Our numerous collection of compliments reinforces my personal dedication to timely and efficient communications from start to finish. It just makes good business sense to treat our clients very well. As we’ve been told more than once, it’s obvious that we enjoy what we do and it shows.

We have performed over 5,000 ceremonies, receptions and corporate events. We really enjoy what we do and it shows, as one client put it years go. And we have a wonderful repertoire for just about any occasion. We perform in the Greater San Francisco Bay Area as well as outer vacinities such as Carmel and Monterey, Yosemite and occasionally north of Sonoma. We’re often willing to travel.

Whether you’re considering a string quartet, string trio, violin & cello duo or solo violin we are delighted to perform for your wedding, reception, corporate event or other special occasion. Our repertoire includes a wonderful selection of classics, waltzes, tangos, jazz standards and contemporary selections.

Live string music is never overbearing. A frequent compliment comes from our clients and their guests who appreciate that they can be heard while socializing and still enjoy the live music.

“Tom and I would like to thank you for the beautiful music you and your musicians provided for our wedding ceremony. The trio helped create an elegant and personal atmosphere. It was a pleasure working with you and having you as part of our day.” and from the groom: “The music was absolutely beautiful and was a big reason we loved our ceremony. I want to thank you and the other musicians for your extraordinary talent. You helped to make our day.”

We accept Visa and Mastercard for your convenience and book as early as 18 months in advance.

***Yes, we have Commercial Liability Insurance. Few musicians carry this expensive policy. More and more venues are requesting it and so we are happy to show proof of insurance to your venue, when required. We carry it for you so you won’t have the problem that comes with a group that doesn’t have this insurance later, when your venue may ask for proof of insurance.

Please contact me for a pricing and availability.
