The trio who played at our wedding were fantastic! They were able to play the new songs we requested and made excellent choices for the other music. Would highly recommend!
Olivia Shaw, wedding

We have nothing but praise, they were everything we expected and more. They played their part in a perfect day and we are very grateful, we will of course recommend them to any friends requiring similar performances.
Thomas Stone

Professional and gave us exactly what we wanted for our wedding reception.
N. Collyer, wedding

The choice and performance of music was excellent. Our guests commented on how nice it was to have a string quartet and it certainly made the day. We would like to wish you all well for the future and we will certainly be recommending you to any of our friends.
Rob and Lisa Hall

Thank you so much for making our day so very special, everyone thought you were fantastic. Thanks again.
Sarah Hollis - Alexandra Palace, London

I am so glad we chose to use your quartet to provide the music, the professional manner in which you conducted yourself made it a pleasure to deal with you.
Joyce Ezed, Selfridge Hotel, Marble Arch, London

I would like to take this opportunity to compliment you all on your musical skills... We have many string quartets on our books, but we always ask the customer to consider yours above the others, because we feel that Viva Strings is the best.
Kim Goodman, Matrimonio Bridal Consultant

The musicians arrived on time, were quick and professional in setting up and appearing. They looked good, and their playing was utterly superb. They were technically profficient and wholly satisfied the musicians in the party. For the rest of us they played like angels; producing tingle factor and tears with the beauty of some of the pieces they chose to play. They played some of the pieces chosen as well as some they felt were appropriate for a trio and the occasion. The mix of classical and jazz was right and we really did not want them to finish! David even stayed long enough to play Happy Birthday as the cake was cut. They really were the highlight of our event and every single one of our 40 guests were amazed and very happy to have heard such a brilliant and polished, wonderful recital. Thank you Viva Strings! We loved you, and will hopefully hear you again.
