What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

I have participated in several concerts and in one movie (my name is on the credits of "A La Mala")

Do you have different line-up options?

If you decide to go for a bigger string ensemble I can definitely help with contacting more musicians for you :)

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

I always try my best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let me know.

How much time do you need to set up?

10 minutes tops :)

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, absolutely! I bring my own instrument to play acoustically

If a song isn't included in our song list there may still be a chance we already know it. If there is a special song you'd like me to play I am happy to do this for you. There is a fee of £30 for this service to take into account rehearsal times etc.

Sandra was fantastic. She actually brought another member of her group too. They really went the extra mile as I asked them to hike up 600 metres up kinder scout in the Peak District (bet part of an hour) to play for a proposal. They were very enthusiastic about the whole thing and worked really hard to make sure everything went well, which it did. The music itself was flawless and really well received, I can’t thank them enough.

I cannot be thankful enough with this quartet. They enlivened our private event with a wide variety of music from baroque to pop covers. Also, they were extremely professional when discussing the details of the performance. I would hire again for sure!
