7 Reasons to Hire a String Quartet
  1. 1. A string quartet tends to create a romantic atmosphere perfect for weddings, engagement parties, anniversary celebrations, or even a well-planned marriage proposal.

  2. 2. String quartets are generally more entertaining than recorded music since most people enjoy seeing people play real instruments live. It’s a beautiful experience for guests of all ages.

  3. 3. A well-trained quartet can play any style of music you ask them to. You can book a string quartet that can play jazz, swing, contemporary hits or musical theater numbers.

  4. 4. Since string quartets are small, they're perfect for tiny venues and intimate gatherings where another form of entertainment might be too overpowering.

  5. 5. Since the musicians don't need much, they're more portable than a DJ or full band. There isn't a lot of equipment to break down and set up.

  6. 6. With no electrical equipment, a string quartet is great for outdoor events. There is no special preparation for wires, speakers, or mixers.

  7. 7. Quartets are more memorable than a generic DJ. Your guests will remember a talented group of live musicians more than they will a person playing recorded music.
