Gary and Paul
We just wanted to express our sincerest thanks for playing so beautifully at our wedding. When we first saw your video online, I got that special, magical tingle. Hearing that one piece, which just happens to be my favourite, blew the competition out of the running. We loved the fusion of classical, pop, show tunes and the little quirky pieces – ‘Let’s go fly a kite’ went down a storm. I was personally mesmerised watching Laura ‘live’ the music – a true artist. Again, thank you all for making our wedding day truly memorable, to us and all our guests - you were perfect!

What requirements do the quartet have?
For the perfect layout the quartet needs approx. 3 x 2 metres, plus 4 armless chairs. We do not require lighting as we have music stand lights. We also need somewhere to get changed and leave our cases and belongings. Our cellist will provide a spike holder so as not to damage any flooring.
Can you play outside?
We are more than happy to play outside on fine days, howeverwe need shelter from wind, rain or direct sunlight. Please inform your venuethat you may wish us to perform outside so that arrnagements can be made for shelter and chairs.
Do I need to provide refreshments?
We are usually provided with water/soft drinks throughout a performance. A light meal or sandwhiches are appreciated for longer bookings.
What if one of the group members is ill?
We have a pool of experienced proffessional players that work regularly with us that can play instead of the absentee.
What time would you usually arrive for an event?
We would aim to get to the venue an hour before our scheduled start time.
