    The Best Ceremony Music!

    Our experience with 5280 was phenomenal. Selecting the songs to be played was super simple and straight forward. The musicians were on time and so low maintenance. The music was beautiful and really elevated our ceremony experience. While my groom and eye were certainly caught up in the excitement of the day, our guests repeatedly commented on how lovely the string quartet music was. Not having to worry about or manage the group was a HUGE plus on the day with so many other things happening. We highly recommend 5280 for your wedding!

    5280 String Quartet did a fantastic job at our wedding! Ross was great with communication, and responded very quickly. The group was so flexible and ready to take on some new songs that we wanted to have played at the ceremony. 5280 plays a wide variety of songs, and we were able to select some classics and some more modern songs. We would absolutely recommend 5280 String Quartet to everyone!

    Terrible, I was lied too

    If you are considering 5280 Quartet, I don't recommend them. My experience was awful!! From the start, Ross didn't have good communication with me. The quartet that showed up to my wedding and they weren't even 5280 Quartet like they were advertising. (Please look at the photo, this isn't the band that they are advertising). The reason why I had hired this quartet was so that they can perform for my guest... sadly the quartet was sitting behind my guest (in a hidden corner) at the wedding when we had specifically told them that they would be playing for the guest. I don't mean to be blunt, but I don't think anyone goes to a symphony and have the performers sit behind the audience...

    I had paid almost $2K having the quartet sit in a distance corner... which I could've easily just use our DJ to play classical music...

    For the awful communication I had with Ross,

    1). I had tried to coordinate phone meetings with him multiple times, but I had no reply. I needed to talk to him about the song list and didn't hear back from him at all. I even scheduled a meeting on a link he sent me on "calendly.com/quartets" and he didn't even show up to the meeting...

    2). I had even asked to reschedule the meeting and I didn't even hear back...

    3). A week later I had call, left a voice message, text message and email telling him that I've been trying to call and email to make a final payment and I would like to know how I can get a hold of him to go over details and I didn't hear anything... (I even screen shot our text message)

    4). Finally I went into my contract found his payment info and sent him a venmo payment... I texted a screen shot to show him I held and honored my contract with him and had paid him fully even before the wedding.
    Wow, he finally texted back and said he received the payment ...

    What was frustrating about this whole process is that I felt like I was being lied to... 5280 Quartet isn't who they say they are. Also, the lack of communication got my anxieties up, I wasn't sure if they were going to show up.... Even when a quartet showed up it wasn't even them....
    Also, they didn't even play for the guest... the quartet just seated themselves where-ever was convenient for themselves, they just hide in a corner...

    Its NOT worth the money, if you are going to be a live quartet to perform, then at least perform with decency. Again, this is my truthful experience with them and I would be careful with this quartet.. because there is a lot of headaches, false advertisement, and severe lack of communication.
