I hired a violin trio for my daughter’s wedding. Karen is very easy to work with, she helped me with song selections, and the order for each song to be played. I am extremely pleased. I’m glad I decided to give Karen a call. You will not be disappointed.Sent on 06/13/2019

We hired Karen and her trio to play for our wedding and the guests said afterward they thought the radio was playing! Karen was very professional throughout answered our many questions. They arrived early and although our ceremony was delayed over 20 minutes because our pastor was late they had plenty of music. It was a gorgeous day and no one seemed to notice except me. She told us later that she has learned over the years to bring more music to cover late weddings and at her own wedding they forgot to bake her wedding cake! Karen's duo played beautifully and we give them the thumbs up and highly recommend! We even gave them a bottle of champagne each and a tip for being so extra special.Sent on 04/03/2019
