Best Violinist Ever
I want to go back to the day of my wedding just so I can listen to Matt Dendy play violin – he's that good. We hired Matt for both our ceremony and cocktail reception at the Ritz-Carlton Sarasota (cocktails at the beach club). Our guests were so impressed with his performance. The best part about Matt is that he's super helpful in the planning process, and boy is he patient because I went back and forth a lot before finalizing the ceremony music. He can play everything from Bach to John Denver to Avicii, so he caters to pretty much anyone's tastes. The day after the wedding I went to the tiki hut at the Ritz Beach Club (next to the cocktail lawn) for lunch and they said, "Oh, we overheard the cocktail hour. Your string quartet was amazing!" They were shocked when I told him the music was all performed by ONE guy – a very talented one at that. Thank you, Matt!Sent on 11/17/2019

An absolute must have!
We chose Matt for our beach ceremony and cocktail hour and it was absolutely amazing! From the beginning he was super responsive and answered all of our questions quickly and thoroughly. We had the opportunity to meet him ahead of time at a restaurant he was performing at in Sarasota and at that moment knew he was going to be the perfect addition to our special day. He has an extensive list of music selections, all of which are amazing! Our guests couldn't stop talking about how perfectly he played every song and how much his music elevated our ceremony. I would highly highly recommend choosing him for your next event!Sent on 06/20/2019
