    If you truly are looking for the BEST musicians for your ceremony or reception, Philadelphia String Quarter is it! Our violinist was AMAZING at the church!!! He worked with the pianist and my sister in law throughout the whole mass and everyone could not stop raving about him. I came up to him after the ceremony and thanked him so much for playing, he was so kind and sweet!! Our guest especially loved the duet during the cocktail hour, I saw our guest tapping their feet on the ground while they played moves like jagger! I would recommend The Philadelphia String Quarter for anyone looking for musicians for weddings, partys, etc. Your company was worth every penny and more!! We still talk about the musicians today!!

    Thank you Jillian and Michael you guys are so sweet!

    A special unique detail

    We wanted something unique at our wedding so we reached out to Mugu and the team after seeing all the raves reviews! They accommodated our special requests for processional music (the weekend, game of thrones, a halo by Beyoncé) and guests made several comments about how beautiful they sounded doing cocktail hour. I’m just sad I didn’t get more time to listen to them during the ceremony (I was a little distracted!!)
