We hired Violines Frenesi for our ceremony music for our destination wedding in Old San Juan. They were absolutely exceptional from beginning to end. They maintained ongoing contact with me. The repertoire of music to chose from was extensive, and the great soprano and the violinists made my ceremony one that felt angelical and highly spiritual. It made all my guests comment about the great music and performance. I am more than satisfied with their great performance, professionalism, attentiveness and quality of service. They are the best. I highly recommend them.

By far one of the worst vendors I had worked with. I had signed a contract with Astrid for my 11.30.12 wedding. I sent her a deposit and secured a date. After that, trying to communicate with her was like trying to communicate with a wall. She was completely unresponsive to my emails and my wedding coordinators emails.

I sent her a list of songs to play for the ceremony along with videos from YouTube so she can see exactly what we wanted. I sent the list several times as did my coordinator, no response. I get a call the day before the wedding and Astrid apologizes and says she has been sick and in and out of the hospital. Why is she calling me the day before the wedding to tell me this? Shouldn't someone be covering for her? She said she didn't have all the songs we wanted, Cold Play...you don't have Cold Play? I sent the list well in advance, for $640 you would think her musicians could learn the songs.

Onto the ceremony, ONLY 1, yes 1 of the songs were played that we asked. I sent a list of about 10. Songs for the ceremony and songs for the cocktail hour. Only song played was one and it was played at the wrong time. Prelude was wrong, the song the bride walks down to was wrong, recessional wrong. I emailed Astrid after the wedding to tell her my disappointment and guess what, NO RESPONSE. I guess since she already received payment, she doesn't care.

Update, 3.5 weeks after and guess what, still no reply. That right there tells you how she doesn't value customers and how she only cares about collecting her money.

Brides, please spend your money on another musician, this vendor doesn't care about you. The musicians played 3 songs during the ceremony that we didn't want and played classical music when they did play which we didn't ask for. I should have had the DJ play for cocktail hour instead of wasting over $640 on Astrid. If she really was in and out of the hospital, she should have someone else handle her business or referred me to someone else.

VIOLINES FRENESI it was a pleasure to work with from the beginning to the end. They played the music for our wedding ceremony and helped to make the experience a delightful one for us. They allowed us to choose the music and were open to our preferences while offering advice to round out the occasion. I would recommend them to any of my friends and would hire them again for a special event.

Astrid O'Neill has been awesome to work with and I highly recommend her for any wedding for special music. Unfortunately, My daughter has an illness and we have to postpone her wedding of January 20, 2012. I cannot recommend Violines Frenesi highly enough for their support and understanding. I feel like they are family after 8 months of planning and preparation. You will find these musician are professional and delightful to work with. G. Ayers
