From customers:

Keir (, 2 years ago

Your cellist Sam helped create a truly unforgettable moment for our 10 year anniversary. He arrived promptly at The Savoy, kindly agreed to wait behind a curtain poised to play on cue, and seemed genuinely excited to be part of this wonderful surprise. My wife described him playing the piece of music from our wedding as being "like a scene from a movie". A wonderful musician and a thoroughly decent chap too. Could not have been happier with the service and will recommend to others. Thank you.

Frances (, 2 years ago

This was very easy to organise from the quick and helpful responses provided by the coordinator Sophie, right through until the day of our daughter’s wedding celebration. We chose a violinist, Kevin for our small wedding gathering in a hotel, and we were so pleased with his attentive and charming performance. Kevin played as the guests arrived, for the procession of the bride, during the signing of the register and at the drinks reception. He even found the music for some obscure pieces that were requested and had special meaning for the bride and groom. We were therefore entertained to a range of popular romantic music, various classical pieces and a few Marvel and Star War themes! Absolutely brilliant, and very reasonably priced. Thank you for helping to make a great day!
