J&K Strings is a violin/cello duo serving the NEPA area. We started playing together over 10 years ago - ever since we were budding string players in middle school. Now, as professionals, we've taken on playing weddings and other special events. We are versatile musicians who enjoy leaving the "classical comfort zone" and playing different styles of music. Most of our weddings are played together as a duet, but we can also add more players to the mix to create a trio or quartet if you're interested!

The Perfect Addition
Music was an important component of our wedding ceremony. My husband and I decided to hire J&K Strings to provide the ceremony music. The decision was a great one! J&K provided the processional music, unity ceremony music, and recessional music, and it added the perfect personal touch to the ceremony. From the start, communication with J&K Strings was quick and responsive. We received so many compliments about their performance and professionalism. Highly recommended!Sent on 07/02/2021

The perfect extra special touch to our wedding!
J&K Strings was a fantastic addition to make our wedding day extra special. Their communication from the beginning was so prompt and professional, making it easy to plan! Without hesitation, they were able to learn our unique song requests and performed them flawlessly. They also accommodated our request to practice with us at our rehearsal and ensure everything went smoothly (though if you require the same, we gave them an extra tip $$$ to share our appreciation and help with their travel costs). Johnathon and Katie went above and beyond to make our wedding everything we were hoping for, even in March 2021 in the midst of COVID. They both were so sweet, respectful of masking, and everyone loved the music! If you are on the fence with adding live music to your ceremony or cocktail hour, definitely do it and book J&K Strings!!Sent on 04/21/2021

Our wedding was on October 17th 2020. Johnathon and Katie were wonderful to work with planning our big day. They always responded quickly, and were incredibly patient with me as I am not always the best responding to emails. We asked for classical suggestions and what they provided was a perfect selection to choose from. They made the whole process so easy and stress free as possible.Sent on 11/14/2020
They played beautiful music for our guests while waiting for me and the bridal party to arrive (I was a half hour late!) I remember walking down the aisle with my father, feeling so incredibly happy, overwhelmed, just ALL the feelings, and I can still here Canon in D. It was perfect.
We were married in a church and the sound carried beautifully. It could be heard perfectly from the back of the church to the alter.
Even with the pandemic, they still looked and played professionally. I cannot imagine it's easy playing an instrument with a mask on, but they did it wonderfully! We cannot thank them enough for helping make our day perfect!
J&K Strings's reply:Thanks for the great review!!! It was great to be able to play for your wedding, especially when everything sounded FANTASTIC in the church!! Thanks again for choosing us! ❤️
