Customer questions

Do you have different line-up options?

Yes, we have a really flexible set of instruments so please do request if you have a certain sound you want to hear :)

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

No problem! We understand the big day can have some big changes & concerts are hard to keep on time! We are flexible and can adjust if you give us enough notice :)

How much time do you need to set up?

30 minutes. We are super speedy.

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

For sure! All of those songs are in our regular 'pads' so we can play those any time, any place!

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, don't worry about us! We bring everything that we need.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

We can, but there would be a small fee if we couldn't source the music for free. If we can, we're happy to put it in the song list.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Between all 4 of us too many to name :)

Recording4 musicians
This is a unique but hugely popular &requested line up of flexible musicians. It includes combinations of guitar, vocals, percussion and strings. It's 4 people swapping and changing to create and capture a brilliant background atmosphere. Mainly playing pop songs, but still able to revert in classical string quartet, the 4 will then record your choice of song and send it to you as a recording as a momento of your special day.

Charlotte C, 2 years ago

They were absolutely amazing! So professional and so talented! Highly recommend these musicians. On the evening itself I had numerous people ask me where they were from and contacts. They were so pleasant and really put me to ease. Our New Years Eve Party went spectacularly and Kesh Quartet were one of the main reasons. If you get the chance for them to play at your request you will not be dissapointed. Thank you Rosie and Ben. Hope to see/listen to you in the future! With the ease of Encore it really helped it's great to recommend a company and musicians too.
