Alex L, 2 years ago

They played at our wedding at Abbey Road and were amazing. We were able to request a couple of songs that had meaning for us to walk up the aisle to

Martha W, 2 years ago

We had this great string quartet playing at my mothers 90th birthday. They had a great repertoire of tunes and songs that everyone loved. There was something for everyone.
