How fortunate we were to find Da Capo Players. Steve Velez arranged a string quartet that exceeded our expectations on every level. They are an extremely talented group of professionals that are versatile, easy to work with, and have made a lasting impression with everyone attending our wedding ceremony and reception. I strongly recommend Da Capo Players if you are seeking the finest in strings quartet ensembles.
Sincerely, Bonnie and Carl Foltz

Easy to communicate with and plan. Pricing was fair. Music was exceptional. My other musician was a family member and had a wonderful time playing with Steve. Could not have imagined my ceremony any other way!

A very close family friend arranged for Steve to play at our wedding. Simply put, he made the afternoon magical... not only was he incredibly supportive leading up to the ceremony - understanding, patient, and available with our planning - he was an enormously calming influence the day of, arriving early with extra equipment that we hadn't considered previously, guiding the ceremony with his music so that it flowed naturally. This aside from the fact that his playing was world-class and he's about the nicest guy you're ever going to meet. You'd be silly not to work with him outright - no need to look elsewhere.
For any Bride and Groom reading this endorsement: I am Rev. Michael, and over the past decade I have Officiate thousands of Wedding Ceremonies, and without a doubt the most memorable and enjoyable Ceremony I ever Officiated used Da Capo Players for their Ceremony . Versus disk jockeys, Da Capo Players outshines them all. They offer all types of music. After the Ceremonies, I hear so many compliments from the guests as to what a treat it was not to have the typical disk jockey music. They exude the touch professionalism that I rarely, if ever, encounter. You would be remiss in not at least calling Steve to find out for yourself.

To the average listener, many orchestras may sound... alike... Over the past 8 years I've had the previledge of working with Da Capo Players who are the SUPERSTARS of their industry. They are incredible "concert level" performers, virtuosos who deliver an _experience_ to be remembered, satisfying even the most difficult critic. I respect their unwavering perfectionism and am happy to be associated with the crème de la crème of orchestras!
