Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
The Martello Quartet has a wide repertoire including wedding classics and other classical favourites, pop and jazz hits, folk tunes and themes from TV, films and musicals. We are happy to discuss specific pieces and play or avoid music from specific genres.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
We will need four armless chairs but we bring everything else. If you think that lighting might be an issue in your venue please let us know and we will bring battery operated stand lights.
