    Violinist for backyard wedding

    We hired Kelly from Fretless Music to play violin during our backyard wedding ceremony and it was wonderful! The music provided such a great ambiance before and after the ceremony and our guests were blown away. Also, working with Stephanie (the owner) leading up to the wedding was great. We had a short introductory chat and then she sent us a template to fill out and a long list of songs to choose from. We ended up making a special request for our recessional song which they were able to accommodate. Finally, we thought that the services were very reasonably priced. I would highly recommend to any couple getting married in the Chicago area.

    A very talented and professional group of women!

    It was an absolute pleasure to have Fretless Music play at our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. The music was amazing - I am still receiving compliments from my guests. Be sure to check out their large music selection on their website! It was a pleasure working with Stephanie. Stephanie was great at communicating with me especially during the ever changing climate of planning a wedding during Covid. Truly a talented group of women!

    Beautiful wedding music

    Stephanie and Fretless Strings were amazing at our wedding. My only regret is that as the bride I didn’t have the opportunity to sit and listen to them the whole time they played. The songs I heard during the cocktail hour were amazing – including some special requests that they had just added to their repertoire for this wedding. And, when I heard them start to play “What a Wonderful World” as my bridesmaids walked in, I teared up from the beauty of it. I heard many compliments from my guests as well, including relatives who are musicians themselves. Also, they were the best vendor I worked with from the perspective of feeling assured everything would work out well before the wedding. Stephanie's responses were fast and full of warmth. Finally, hiring them is more economical than you may think! If you are watching your music budget, I highly suggest hiring them (which will cost you less than most DJs), since you can easily Spotify your own playlist for dancing later but the beauty of this live music is something you cannot create yourself.
