Talk about talent! Dockside Strings played at our wedding for the ceremony/cocktail hour and created the exact ambiance and emotional vibes we were hoping for. One of our guests was shocked when they saw it was a live band creating the music and had let them know that they thought it was a recording! Thank you so much for making our day extra special!Sent on 05/26/2021

Solo violinist FTW
We initially wanted the quartet, but most of the group was already booked on our date. Dan did an outstanding job solo and we would gladly have a soloist if we did it again! His talented musical contribution to the ceremony made a huge impact. We are so appreciative of him learning and playing Viva Las Vegas as a tribute to where our love story began one year ago. The pre and postlude music was so wonderful and created a joyous and romantic ambiance we will always remember!Sent on 10/21/2020

We had a small wedding (less than 50 people) and wanted to provide music to our guests that was different from a DJ or using Pandora. We used the contact feature in Wedding Wire for Dockside Strings and received an email within hours from Dan Sanchez, the music director. He made suggestions on the number of musicians we should have and provided a quote that was reasonable. They had an extensive song list to choose from, ranging from classical to modern day songs. I even made a few suggestions for songs that were not listed, and he was able to provide the sheet music at a nominal charge. On the day of the wedding, Dan called to confirm the location. He and another musician were the ones who played at our wedding... and it was MAGICAL!!! They were poised, professional, and simply amazing! Our guests thoroughly enjoyed listening to them. It was just the perfect touch to our special day. I HIGHLY recommend Dockside Strings!Sent on 03/17/2020

Will always recommend!
Dockside Strings was incredible to work with from the very beginning. They honestly never stopped impressing us. Everyone we spoke to and worked with was so incredibly kind, and good grief was the music beautiful. I can’t picture a better way to have experienced our wedding ceremony than with Dockside Strings. Everything was perfect, and we are so grateful.Sent on 01/07/2020

Soundtrack to a fairytale

Due to a seasonal hurricane we had to postpone our wedding and the team gladly accommodated our new date. A really talented bunch!

Dockside Strings was everything we could have asked for! They came highly recommended by our venue. Now I see why! They were so easy to get in touch with. I was able to modify my choices as often as I needed via email. We decided on a string duet which was beautiful! They have a huge list of songs to choose from. If you get overwhelmed you can just tell them artists or decades to stick with. They did an amazing job combining classic and modern songs for our prelude and ceremony. We couldn't have imagined anything better!Sent on 07/23/2019

Dockside Strings was awesome! Although I only got to hear them play while walking down the aisle and from a distance during cocktail hour while we took pictures, we were told by many guests how beautiful they sounded! They were SO easy to work with and played exactly what I asked. Dan also sent us a great picture of the ceremony space afterwards. We highly recommend Dockside Strings!!Sent on 10/06/2016

We hired Dockside Strings to perform at our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour - they were perfect! They were responsive and professional in the lead-up to our wedding, and their music on the day was absolutely beautiful - it really added depth to the event. They were also incredibly flexible and played a few of our, somewhat non-traditional requests, which was so much fun. Highly recommend.Sent on 01/02/2017

The dockside strings made our ceremony dreams come true! Their music was just so beautiful. They even stuck around a little longer at no charge and played during our post ceremony photos with family. Working with them was so easy. They even sent us a sweet email after the wedding with a very cool photo of our set up and their violin! They are so talented, professional, and thoughtful!Sent on 06/06/2016

We wanted something special for our ceremony and they really added that! They were wonderful musicians and our music sounded great! Not only that, but they learned not one, but TWO songs for our ceremony!! There were so many special songs that I wanted and Dockside Strings allowed me to have all of them for my wedding. The song sounded so beautiful as I walked down the aisle and it brought tears to my Dad’s eyes first, then mine, then my groom’s. It really was a special moment with the most wonderful song. I’ll always think highly of Dockside Strings. They were so accommodating and professional. Thank you so much for making my ceremony and cocktail hour so wonderful!!Sent on 06/10/2016

Dockside played such beautiful ceremony music at my wedding! Dan is very quick to respond through email, or however you choose to contact him. They had all the songs I requested already in their repertoire and hearing them played live on our special day was amazing. They were very professional, on time, and the guests loved them. Definitely recommend them!Sent on 01/25/2016

I hired Dockside Strings to perform at a reception for an anniversary. They were elegant and professional, punctual, and courteous. This ensemble was outstanding in every regard and the music was absolutely beautiful. Dockside Strings has the sound you might expect to find for an expensive price in a large city, but, fortunately, they are local and affordable.Sent on 12/29/2015

Dockside Strings were fantastic. Dan, the group’s lead, was extremely professional and made the whole process a breeze. He responded to emails quickly and supported us throughout. For our processional and bridal entrance we asked for two songs that were not in Dockside Strings’ repertoire. Dan arranged the songs and they were perfect! He even sent us a recording of one of the songs so we could listen in advance.Sent on 10/20/2014
On the day of the wedding we had to change venues at the last minute due to weather. Whilst we were getting everything re-arranged, Dockside Strings just set up and started playing to entertain our guests – they just took the initiative themselves, keep everything on track and all our guests were happily entertained while we were elsewhere. When we did get the alternative venue arranged, they moved location without any hassle. Aside from the outstanding music they were extremely pragmatic and professional. We are grateful for their initiative.
We cannot recommend Dockside Strings highly enough – they are excellent musicians and are great to work with!

We hired Dockside Strings to play our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. I was so busy I didn't even get to say hi to the musicians, but they were really good! We had a violin and viola duet who played the three ceremony songs I wanted beautifully. They have a lot of selections/samples on their website, and recommendations for the different parts of the ceremony. And, they played our cocktail hour, giving it a very classy touch. I highly recommend Dockside Strings. I was even able to hire them on short notice two weeks before the wedding, and it turned out perfectly!Sent on 07/21/2014

This company was amazing to work with! They were always so responsive on emails. I wanted a specific song in the wedding that wasn't on their repertoire and they learned it for me! Now that's good customer service. They added such a nice touch to our ceremony and they played beautifully. I definitely would recommend them to anyone!Sent on 04/17/2014

I had Dockside Strings play for my wedding ceremony in Surf City, and they were great! Dan was so professional, he helped me with choosing the right songs before the wedding. And on our big day, the group arrived with plenty of time to set-up and make sure that everything went off without a hitch.Sent on 09/09/2012
I received a lot of compliments from family and guests about having live classical music at my wedding. With so many other things on my mind, I really appreciated the fact that they knew what they were doing. They were amazing, and I would recommend Dockside Strings to anyone looking for a string quartet for their wedding.
