    World class musicians for your private event

    I was so lucky to have these seriously world class musicians play my wedding. They have a large repertoire from many years of experience, and were able to play some obscure piece I requested practically on the spot. They are mature, extremely professional and super friendly. It's like having a private concert. Highly recommend!

    Superior, satisfying

    I have been lucky to be an audience for these talented musicians on more than one occasion. Every piece of music was played at a pleasantly high level of artistry, to the degree which momentarily satiated my want for refinery, abut then left me eager for more.
