There is nothing quite like the experience of enjoying live string music. Whatever the occasion may be, having a group of string musicians perform for your guests adds an extra element of class, ambience, and elegance that is simply unparalleled. The dream of Dockside Strings is to provide this experience for you and your guests.

Our string players perform with the Wilmington Symphony Orchestra and Tallis Chamber Orchestra. Our musicians also teach private lessons in their home studios, as well as at Cape Fear Community College.

We offer a wide variety of musical selections, including classical and romantic favorites. We also love to spice things up a bit with jazz, pop, contemporary, and holiday tunes. We look forward to playing for you!???

We would be delighted to perform for your next event. Set the tone with Dockside Strings!

Talk about talent! Dockside Strings played at our wedding for the ceremony/cocktail hour and created the exact ambiance and emotional vibes we were hoping for. One of our guests was shocked when they saw it was a live band creating the music and had let them know that they thought it was a recording! Thank you so much for making our day extra special!

A Perfect Ceremony

Dan was awesome to work with! Communication was quick and efficient and I loved being able to pay via venmo to book his services. I chose the string duo and it was perfect for the size of our wedding. They played for the ceremony only and it was simply beautiful. I had always dreamed of having a string band as guest arrived and when I walked down the aisle. It was surreal to see it all come together. Thank you to Dan and his team for an unforgettable day!

Solo violinist FTW

We initially wanted the quartet, but most of the group was already booked on our date. Dan did an outstanding job solo and we would gladly have a soloist if we did it again! His talented musical contribution to the ceremony made a huge impact. We are so appreciative of him learning and playing Viva Las Vegas as a tribute to where our love story began one year ago. The pre and postlude music was so wonderful and created a joyous and romantic ambiance we will always remember!
