Amazing musical addition to our wedding for a really reasonable price
Tony Gizzi and The Shrewsbury Quartet provided the ceremony and cocktail hour music for my wedding on 9.13.19. These talented musicians were so easy to work with. They provided many music selections and honored our choices. They played each song beautifully. The quartet music really made the whole wedding unique and elegant. I found them on Gig Masters and saw a clip of them playing for a mini wedding on The Rachel Ray Show. It was so gorgeous, I booked that day without much more thought. In person, they gave me goosebumps.Sent on 09/19/2019
Tony mailed us a flash drive of music for free. I love having it as a keepsake to listen to their music. I also found their prices extremely reasonable. Plan to tip because they are worth more than their fee!!They were very professional and we were thrilled to have them as part of the wedding team.

We hired the Shrewsbury String Quartet for our wedding and I could not be happier!!! They were so wonderful in accommodating every song we wanted played, and they sounded absolutely lovely! I come from a very musical family, as does my husband, so we knew we needed the best, and we absolutely got it with the Shrewsbury String Quartet!!Sent on 12/07/2017

We had the Shrewsbury String Quartet perform both the Ceremony and Cocktail Hour for our wedding. They arrived early to The Desmond, performed flawlessly, and "wowed" our guests!! The contract process was quite simple, their website provided plenty of samples to help select the music for our wedding, and their performance was exceptional!! Our music selection was pretty conventional, so I can't speak to how special requests would go - but I don't think you can possibly find a better quality outcome!!!Sent on 10/17/2016

Shrewsbury String Quartet came highly recommended to us by a family friend. Working with Tony has been a breeze. He is timely, kind, and knows exactly what he is doing. He offers great song suggestions and puts a nervous bride at ease. Shrewsbury String Quartet has been an easy vendor to use and I would recommend them to anyone!Sent on 09/11/2015

The Shrewbury Quartet was a beautiful addition to our wedding ceremony. Our guests are still talking about them. Toni was very responsive and great to work with. When choosing songs for specific times in our ceremony, he knew exactly what we were talking about and was able to offer suggestions. We had a catholic ceremony outdoors and everything was amazing! We would highly recommend them for any type of wedding! Thank you for being a part of our special day!Sent on 08/25/2015

Everyone raved about how beautiful the string quartet was and how it added a special touch and flare to the ceremony. The only downfall is that because I was the bride I didn't get to see much of their performance.Sent on 12/07/2014

My wedding ceremony at Talamore Country Club was perfect, and a lot of that was due to this incredible quartet. We had two special songs we wanted them to play, one of which they didn't know, but we found the sheet music and they learned it just for us! It was a special song my mom loves and it honestly made her whole day when she walked down the aisle to it. Everything they played was perfect. Thanks you so much!Sent on 06/27/2014

Shrewsbury was perfect. Tony, the leader, was responsive and knowledgeable, and they were able to play exactly what I wanted for the ceremony. I would highly recommend them for both ceremony and cocktail hour music.Sent on 06/18/2014

Shrewsbury Strings were great! They did our ceremony music and were incredible! They are extremely well priced for such an elegant addition for your wedding! They were a joy to work with, very helpful and accommodating during our planning, and could not have been better the day of the wedding! I would definitely recommend them to anyone in the future!! Absolutely beautiful!Sent on 02/13/2014

Tony Gizzi at Shrewsbury String Quartet is THE BEST!! I have known him as a friend for years and was at a wedding he performed at (which I recommended him for). He blew me away! Gorgeous music, very professional when wedding ran late. I HIGHLY recommend Tony and the Shrewsbury String Quartet. You will not be sorry.Sent on 07/21/2015

Tony was really great to talk with. He was receptive to the songs we liked, and shared his quartet's skills. He was always quick to respond over e-mail and made time to do phone calls as well.Sent on 09/22/2013
He also went above and beyond, playing "Explosions in the Sky" for us, and working to demo songs. The song demos were interesting: he was able to record and play back a string composition of certain songs we had wanted. It was nice to hear and give feedback so they could give the best performance.
On the day of the wedding, the trio assembled, and with my groomsman brother's help, put a platform on the beach together for them to perform on. It was really beautiful, and people thought it was a great touch to have string musicians on the beach. Really really classy and I highly recommend. If it's possible, get there earlier just to hear them play for a bit, and then do the ceremony.

From the moment I contacted tony everything was great. He always go back to me in a timely fashion. He gave me a CD with some demos of the songs I could choose from and the website also had samples. I think they also do custom songs if you just ask. They arrived early for my ceremony and played beautifully. Everyone loved them!! I can't wait to get my video so I can hear them againSent on 02/24/2013

The most responsive and flexible vendor that I worked with for the whole wedding! As soon as I emailed, every time, Tony responded IMMEDIATELY (or almost immediately)! We selected Shrewsbury because it was very obvious that they're very familiar with the Catholic ceremony, and we come from a very up-tight Catholic church. They worked with our friend that we asked to sing during our ceremony, and were so accommodating with our music selections. Music was beautiful and the audibility was perfect in our XXL, carpeted Catholic church.Sent on 02/11/2013
Shrewsbury also played our cocktail hour (30 minute drive from our church, with a 90 minute break in between ceremony and reception), to rave reviews. Though audible from everywhere in our cocktail space, we had guests who told us they enjoyed the music so much that they specifically hung out very close to the musicians, because they thought Shrewsbury was so wonderful.
If you're wondering if a quartet is worth the money for the added elegance, DO IT! And book Shrewsbury String Quartet. I PROMISE - you will not be disappointed.

We used the string quartet as ceremony music only. Tony was very easy to communicate with, quick to respond to calls and very helpful because I really felt like I had no idea what I was doing with ceremony music! Most importantly, they sounded absolutely beautiful on our wedding day. We received so many compliments at the quality of the music. They will also take requests outside of the typical- we used Coldplay for our recessional.Sent on 12/21/2012

I was looking for violinists that would be able to perform a catholic church ceremony and the fact that the Shrewsbury String Quartet website has a specific page that addresses catholic ceremonies and recommends songs was already impressive to begin with, but when you actually speak to Tony, he's even more helpful and impressive.Sent on 05/23/2013
Tony was 100% responsive and accommodating, and I feel confident in recommending his services to all brides. The ceremony was beautiful and they were excellent performers - incredibly professional.
Ann · Married on 10/14/2012
A perfect touch to a perfect day. My only regret is that I didn't get to hear very much of them as I was the bride. They arrived on time, played before the ceremony, during the ceremony (on request) for a song, and after while we greeted our guests in the recieving line. Very classy touch to our memorable day.Sent on 10/19/2012

Working with Tony from Shrewsbury String Quartet was a dream! He was so helpful in helping me select my songs for the ceremony, and I loved their website. They even have a funny wedding blooper video section! It was great to be able to listen to demos of them playing the actual songs to get a feel for what I wanted at my wedding. The day of, they were professional and the music sounded excellent. Thanks Shrewsbury String Quartet! Also very affordable!!Sent on 10/02/2012

I am so happy that I went with the Strewsbury String Quartet for my August wedding! Tony was incredibly responsive and professional. Also, their website is so helpful! It allows you to listen to previews of the different songs to help you make a decision. It also offers insight on choosing music for a Catholic wedding (which I needed help with). They were also very affordable. I chose a string duo for my wedding to stay with in budget and was a little nervous that it might not sound like enough in a big Catholic church. Tony assured me that all the songs that I had picked would sound good with a duo and he was right! The music was beautiful and I loved being able to afford live music at my wedding that wasn't the typical organ. I didn't have any contact with them the day of the wedding, but they showed up early, rehearsed with my brother (the vocalist) and helped produce a beautiful ceremony. I can't thank them enough!Sent on 11/09/2012

Easiest vendor I worked with. Beautiful music...no hassles...and a great price. I shopped around quite a bit and some of the other groups in Philly are almost twice as costly and honestly...not as friendly and easy going as Tony from Shrewsbury.Sent on 06/18/2012
