Top-Notch Musicians and Professionals
We hired Steve and his colleagues to play the processional and recessional at our wedding, plus 30 minutes of pre-wedding background music and an hour during the cocktail reception immediately following the wedding. As a general comment, they sounded absolutely beautiful and they played exactly the right mix of songs at exactly the right tempo and volume to enhance, but not overwhelm, the spaces that they were playing in. But more specifically, they did two stunningly gorgeous renditions of pop songs that we requested for the processional (God Only Knows by the Beach Boys) and recessional (Sweet Child O' Mine by Guns & Roses).Sent on 12/06/2019
I spent hours scouring the internet for a recording of "Sweet Child" that I liked, and they all sounded shrill or off key - even the rendition by Vitamin String Quartet sounded off. I was nervous that the song would be a disappointment, but I was absolutely blown away when Steve and his ensemble started to play as we walked down the aisle out of the church. I was hoping for a "decent" rendition of the song at most, but Steve's ensemble played it PERFECTLY. It was the second happiest moment of the entire wedding for me (the first being the actual marriage!).
On top of their incredible talent, Steve is extremely organized, responsive and professional. He made it so easy for us to figure out what we wanted, and then he followed up with us continuously to keep everything on track. I couldn't be happier with our choice to hire Steve for our wedding, and I would absolutely hire him again. Thank you, Steve!

Highest marks for SMT Music at the church and the reception
We couldn't have been happier with the string quartet who played for our daughter's wedding ceremony and reception. Both the musical selection and performance were exceptional and the musicians skillfully covered the gap when there was a delay in starting the ceremony. SMT Music offers a website with samples of a wide variety of wedding music which makes it easy to choose. Steve is very responsive to questions and great to work with. His group is prompt and professional and personable too. We give them our highest recommendation.Sent on 12/06/2019
