“String and Tonic played during the drinks reception of my wedding. I have to say they sounded fantastic and all the guests commented how splendidly they both played creating a wonderful atmosphere. It was great to hear the buzz of my guests with String and Tonic playing in the background. It has been a pleasure working with String and Tonic. They are both extremely professional and easy to work with. I would highly recommend them.” – Helen Staines.

String and Tonic performed a concert of classical music for my 60th birthday. They chose a perfect balance of pieces, introducing each with engaging comments that helped the audience to appreciate the music. The performance was of the highest professional standard. String and Tonic are serious about their music, reliable and flexible in their business practices and a pleasure to deal with. They will bring delight to any occasion.
