Our Clients' Reviews
"Great musicians. Having Art-Strings Ensembles was like listening a concert at Carnegie Hall - but in a suite of the Waldorf Astoria Hotel. They added a level of class and elegance to our corporate event!"
Michael M. - New York, NY
"Art-Strings are absolutely phenomenal! Completely professional and accommodating. There was a horrible storm before my ceremony and the church lost power. Art-Strings Ensemble did not miss a beat. They were stuck playing for the entire ceremony in a pitch black choir loft all from memory, as they were not able to read the music. Every guest complimented on how amazing they sounded and how the music saved the ceremony. I could not have chosen a better group of musicians. They are hands down the best and I would hire them again in a heart beat"
Kate H. - Rumson, NJ
Absolute professionals! Alexander was so very helpful in choosing songs for the ceremony and was also wonderful in choosing the repertoire during the cocktail hour. My guests raved and we both were very happy with their service. I would recommend them to anyone and will most definitely use them again if the occasion ever calls for it!

When to book musicians for my wedding ceremony or wedding reception?
Book early – it is a good idea to start your search 9-12 months before the wedding day. Professional, well established bands and ensembles usually book up to two years in advance.
How to find a top quality professional ensemble or band for my wedding ceremony?
The best place to book musicians IS the web these days. You will find a number of useful resources on the internet – so, do not panic and start your selection process. Great talent search sites – GigMasters, TheKnot, WeddingWire, GigSalad among many others. Those sites offer a wide variety of different bands, ensembles and soloists. Many of them are well established and have extensive experience in the entertainment business. Read the bands’ past customer reviews, listen to their music samples and watch their videos online. After you get the initial impression and found an entertainer you like - e-mail or call the vendor to make an inquiry about their rates and availability. Do not hesitate to ask about “fine print” - if there are any booking fees or any other hidden fees included in the contract. Do not forget to ask if there are any special offers or promotions they currently run.
