Karina came to our wedding reception drinks. She was easy to organise, and played beautifully. Our outdoor drinks reception was beautiful thanks to her.

Fantastic!! Exceptional talent! On our 15 day cruise, we watched Strings Attached 12 times. Couldn’t get enough! They played all genres and were very accommodating with requests. We highly recommend taking in their performances. 2 thumbs up, hope to see them again!

Our Alaskan Cruise had a lot of wonderful entertainment but Strings Attached was the Best of the Best! I am excited that they have a cd so I can continue to enjoy their music. I have become a Forever Fan!
