“Thank you so much for making such a memorable event for PayPal. You were awesome. We really appreciate it and look forward to working with you again in the future.” –– PAYPAL, 2022 Ad Astra are one of the most successful and best-loved electric string quartets in the world. A dazzling virtuosic spectacle performed in all corners of the globe, the performance exudes a professionalism honed by each of the girls at the top London conservatoires and razor-sharp choreography to match.  Encompassing a fusion of styles, Ad Astra combine classical crossover favourites and instrumental versions of pop songs from past and present, transporting their audiences into musical scenes of Cuban jazz bars, enchanted Arabic deserts, and Mediterranean night clubs. Ad Astra perform as 4 electric strings with the option to add electric guitar and percussion to add that extra wow factor to your event.

The band were amazing. They really went above and beyond and we will certainly be using them again. True professionals in every sense. What we managed to achieve in just one day was nothing short of a miracle and Ad Astra were instrumental in this. — Sounds Commercial
