    Extremely talented!

    I recently had the pleasure of working with Columbia River Strings at the Art of Weddings Venue Crawl and I cannot say enough great things about them. Everyone at the event was constantly remarking on how incredibly talented they are. They were amazing to work with and I would recommend them to anyone who needs music at their wedding.

    Absolutely Amazing!

    These guys are literally THE BEST! Everyone absolutely loved them. They're extremely professional and very talented musicians. Beyond what we could have imagined and probably one of our favorite part of our wedding. They really turned the big day into a classy, traditional wedding all while playing songs we all knew and loved. Worth every penny.

    Great musicians

    Hired Columbia River Strings to play my sisters wedding ceremony and cocktail hour on September 28, 2019 at the . I provided music from my end and played guitar. I was happy how quickly and proficient the musicians were after 1 hour of rehearsal with the full group. Highly recommend the group. Chris was our lead musician and was excellent. I was blown away by their ability to improvise and jam along with our 4 chord guitar pop songs without sheet music in front of them. These guys play at a professional level. When I get married I will hire them again for my wedding ceremony. Highly recommended.
