Beautiful Music Amazing Experience

Matt was very helpful with song selections and did an amazing job transforming from our ceremony quartet to a bluegrass band for our cocktail hour. It was just all wonderful!

Matt and his String Quartet were the perfect touch to the Sunday Noon Wedding Brunch Reception at the Beautiful Old Post Office Venue in downtown St Louis. Our guests were very complimentary to me as the mother of the Bride. They said the music was fantastic and easy to talk over . They were fabulous

I hired a string quartet for my ceremony and cocktail hour through Matt McCallie. He was so easy to deal with and answered my emails promptly and in great detail. My questions never went unanswered and he quickly put together a custom package for my husband and I. The current hits played by the quartet during the cocktail hour are still talked about by my guests to this day and the music provided pulled my entire wedding ceremony together. The quartet arrived on schedule and was very professional. A+ service!
