Art-Strings Ensemble 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 (gig ID# 2232782)

They exceeded our expectations. They knew what songs and tempo to play based on what was going on at that time. Guest loved them as well. - Susan B, Floral Park, NY (gig ID# 2465715)

Alex and his team were absolutely amazing! Our guests are still calling and emailing to tell us how awesome the string quartet was, especially when they played the Rock music. I booked Art-Strings to play for our ceremony and cocktail hour. Alex even composed his own sheet music for the songs that he wasn’t able to find since our requests were not typical "Jewish Ceremony music”. Alex is a total professional and knows his trade very well. I honestly look forward to having another party just so I can hire Alex and his crew again. I would highly recommend Art-Strings to anyone looking for a quartet or even a solo strings artist. Cheers, A + J - Josh M, Paramus, NJ (gig ID# 1860213)

The music was beautiful. Extremely high quality from a very polished group. The band was professional and they accommodated all of our requests. Communicated via email was a breeze. One of the easiest aspects of planning our wedding was signing this quartet. Everything went smoothly. They were worth every penny! - April B, New York, NY (gig ID# 2216545)

I called Alex on Friday to ask if his quartet would be available to play for my Grandmother's memorial service on Monday morning. He spent the next three days finding, arranging and learning the rare titles I asked the quartet to perform. They arrived promptly and performed beautifully. They are true professionals who were able to adapt when the start of the ceremony was delayed. But by far the most special thing was the music. My Grandmother loved classic films and we chose to honor her with music from the most poignant moments of her favorite films. Alex played a violin solo from Wuthering Heights that was so hauntingly, achingly beautiful. We are so grateful. - Vanessa M, Woodhaven, NY (gig ID# 2246914)

We couldn't be more pleased with Art Strings Ensembles. When they played Canon in D I'm pretty sure it took everyone's breath away. Everyone had so much fun listening to them during cocktail hour. They were a highlight of our wedding, they are so incredibly talented! I am so happy we found them and we hope to have the opportunity to hire them again in the future! Thank you for being so amazing!! - Juliana S, Norwalk, CT (gig ID# 1988496)

I am a Meeting Planner for my company and did alot of research looking for a unique performance for a corporate retirement party I was planing.

I highly recommend them and will DEFINETLY be using them for future events!! - Antoinette R, Mountain Lakes, NJ (gig ID# 2188691)

Alex contacted me right away and was very understanding, professional, and accommodating. All of my guest enjoyed the music selection and I would definely hire or refer them for future events. - Kim H, New Rochelle, NY (gig ID# 2176874)

Art Strings were Fantastic! They were professional and played beautifully. Had rave reviews from my guests. I would recommend them to anyone looking to add that elegant touch to their wedding or any kind of affair. - Rosalie S, Mineola, NY (gig ID# 1823848)

Tremendous in every way!!! Contributed in a big way to the success of the evening!!! - Kevin S, New York, NY (gig ID# 1888382)

Art Strings was simply amazing. They accommodated the special songs I requested. The pianist broke her wrist two days before the wedding but Alex was still able to make it happen by quickly finding a replacement for her and finding a workable solution. Overall I was thrilled with how everything turned out and I would definitely recommend Art Strings to anyone. - Susan W, Holmdel, NJ (gig ID# 1524502)

Art-Strings was wondering to work with. They were very responsive to our requests and adapted to the challenging circumstances of playing outside in a garden with frequently changing weather. They were extremely talented and we are so happy that we had them play at our wedding. - Palesa M, Brooklyn, NY (gig ID# 1702614)

Wonderful talented musicians. A delight to my guests. - Francine S, Cedar Grove, NJ (gig ID# 1830864)

Art Strings was a pleasure to deal with and a most talented quartet. Alexander handled the booking professionally and with excellent communication. They researched two obscure requests learning them for us in less than 2 weeks - one song proving elusive for sheet music - they created their own arrangement. The performance at our wedding was phenomenal and added the right note of elegance for a casual ceremony and drinks afterward. They even hung around a bit after the performance chatting with guests and enjoying the party. Hire them! I would most definitely recommend Art String in every way, but above all - these talented musicians deliver top quality. - Brian B, Greenwich, CT (gig ID# 1815154)

Art-Strings Ensembles played for my daughter's wedding ceremony and cocktail hour and they were outstanding. As a music teacher myself, it was important that the music be perfect and it was. The members of the quartet are talented, professional, and sounded amazing. I would highly recommend them and hope to hear them again. - Mary E, New Rochelle, NY (gig ID# 1806103)

I asked them to perform for a surprise proposal to my girlfriend. Alex was very responsive and accommodating, really easy to work with. They're very good and played all my requests. Basically, there's a reason why they have the best feedback on gigmasters. Would definitely hire them again for my wedding/other special events. - Dmitry L, Edgewater, NJ (gig ID# 1799104)

Air Strings were awesome. They were very easy to be in communication with. We were doing an elopement on about a 1 weeks notice and they learned the requested music and also dealt with last minute change of location. They were extremely talented and truly took our wedding to the next level. I would recommend them to anyone for any special occasion. Worth every single penny spent! - Randy V, New York, NY (gig ID# 1772211)

Art Strings performed at our mother's surprise 70th birthday party and provided the ideal music for a fun and incredibly elegant affair! We will definitely hire again. Thank you! - Dara D, Mahwah, NJ (gig ID# 1689183)

Art-Strings Ensemble played at my friends 55th Birthday party this past Saturday. The were not only professional and courteous, their talent is phenomenal. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a strong ensemble and will definitely use them again! - Margie R, New York, NY (gig ID# 1663083)

Art-Strings Ensembles...absolutely superb! I already knew that there was no one else I wanted besides these wonderful musicians to play for my ceremony and cocktail hour; but they far exceeded any possible expectations. EVERYONE raved about them. These men are prompt, professional, kind, talented, and I am so thrilled that they were a part of my big day. If I could have sat there and listened to every song, as the bride, I would have!! They fulfilled every request, were absolutely flawless, easy to get in touch with, and were the hit of the wedding. Everyone keeps calling and sending messages about how impressed they were. Bravo! I can't wait to hear them play again! - Sandra P, Flushing, NY (gig ID# 1548921)

Would definitely recommend them for any major event. Absolutely professional and exceptional. - Alexander R, Avenel, NJ (gig ID# 1597742)

Art-Strings made our wedding ceremony incredibly special. The music was so beautiful. After braving extremely treacherous winter conditions, they arrived on time and provided our guests with a beautiful prelude performance. They timed the processional pieces perfectly and performed the chosen pieces exactly as requested during the ceremony. I can't say enough! They were fantastic and countless guests have commented on their exquisite sound. - Anne L, West Orange, NJ (gig ID# 1563218)

My now husband and I had Art Strings play our cocktail hour at our wedding recently and they played beautifully!! All the guests were raving about how they played and it was definitely the best decision we made to have them play. Would definitely recommend them! - Amanda R, Saint James, NY (gig ID# 1318728)

They added such a wonderful note to the wedding -- we had them play as guests were being seated, and they did the processional and recessional. Highly recommend. - Marilyn S, West Orange, NJ (gig ID# 1289091)

Art-Strings performed at our wedding ceremony on 4/6/13. They arrived early and were ready to go at the time we'd agreed upon. They played the welcoming music as guests arrived and were seated and transitioned into the processional, followed by the bride's entrance. The music was the perfect volume and extremely well played. They also performed a song during our Unity Candle lighting, and the groom and I even commented during the ceremony that they'd ended the song precisely at the right moment! Art-Strings was phenomenal and made the ceremony so much more special. All our guests commented on the beauty of their music. On top of that, they were so easy to work with! - Amy R, East Windsor, NJ (gig ID# 1120382)

Absolutely Phenomenal! Would highly recommend. - Rosemarie U, Valley Stream, NY (gig ID# 940919)

My group loved the Art-Strings and I will definitely use them again! - Beth S, East Brunswick, NJ (gig ID# 1284813)

Really talented. My guests enjoyed them tremendously. I especially appreciate that they learned a special request for the event. - Andrew C, Manhattan, NY (gig ID# 1215622)

Art-Strings is simply amazing. They are extremely professional and phenomenal musicians. They played all the music we requested at our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. The group worked well with the minister presiding over the ceremony. They had no problem playing a song I wanted that they did not have on their song list called Gerudo Valley. I gave them the sheet music for Gerudo Valley, however the I found arrangement of the song was alright. They in turn found/composed a much better arrangement of Gerudo Valley and played it during the cocktail hour making sure we heard the song. My wife and I give them the highest recommendation. - John S, Shrewsbury, NJ (gig ID# 901005)

As a surprised wedding gift for my cousin we hired Alexander and the rest of the Art-String Ensembles they were simply AMAZING (June 23,2012). It was very EASY to communicate with them, they did an excellent job at the wedding ceremony and best of all they were on time ! I WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THEM TO ANYONE! Thank you so much Alexander and the rest of the Art-String Ensembles for an amazing performance. - Maria Jerez -Andrea J, Perth Amboy, NJ (gig ID# 1054948)

Wonderful. I as the groom only heard so many songs, which all sounded superb. As well as that so many guests complimented me on selecting Alexander's group of musicians. Art-Strings Ensembles were wonderful. - Sashi W, Staten Island, NY (gig ID# 1039933)

Easy to communicate with. Very professional. I LOVED them at my wedding! - Caroline D, New York City, NY (gig ID# 1046938)

I used Alexander and his quartet for my outdoor wedding this May and just wanted to say what an awesome job they did. They were right on time and played for an hour before the ceremony and then played the ceremony itself. The overall aura and feel they gave the wedding was magical and I hate to think how quiet and boring had it been without them. He is very easy to work with and responds to emails very promptly. They even learned and played a special request by me and nailed it! I would highly recommend Art-Strings Ensembles to anyone and if an occasion rises again I would not hesitate to hire them again. Thank you Alexander!! Rob C - Robert C, Bedminster, NJ (gig ID# 1085229)

We loved Art-Strings. The music was so beautiful that we extended our event by an hour - we just couldn't get enough! Alex was a pleasure to work with prior to the event - both professional and accommodating. We would recommend them for any event. - Victoria T, New York City, NY (gig ID# 947365)

I literally could not be happier about Art-Strings performance. The musicians were friendly and personable, their choice of songs were on point. I intend to call them next year for our holiday event, and hopefully I have made them part of our gift giving tradition. All of my friends were impressed by them. If someone were looking to book musicians i would recommend no one else. - Jeff R, Long Island, NY (gig ID# 1034721)

My husband and I hired Art Strings Ensemble to play during our wedding ceremony. We were amazed at their talent, professionalism and enthusiasm. We selected a mix of contemporary and classical pieces and all were played flawlessly. Our guests even commented how they completely rocked out during the contemporary pieces! Art Strings exceeded all expectations and made our wedding absolutely perfect. I highly recommend hiring Art Strings for any special event. I will be sure to recommend them to family and friends. - Jessica G, Millington, NJ (gig ID# 984464)

we are extremely satisfied with the performance and professionalism that was displayed during our ceremony and cocktail hour for our wedding 10/9/2011. they are great guys to work with, great communication. They even learned songs I had requested that were not in their repertoire. Everyone loved them, they were one of the most talked about topics of the day! No one could stop raving about them! Thank you Alex and the rest of your musicians for giving me a wedding we'll never forget! -Jacalyn - Jackie W, Bronx, NY (gig ID# 719254)

They sounded incredible and were extremly easy to work with- thiey helped make our special day even more special The praise from the guests is still coming in. - Richard S, Brooklyn, NY (gig ID# 957617)

We loved our quartet! Our wedding ceremony turned out to be classy. We loved the music played. The music played was so eloquent and beautiful. They played throughout our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception as they played a variety of genre music. Very talented musicians. They played our first dance and our father/daughter, mother/son dance perfectly. I was so impressed by their talent and their passion for classical music. I would highly recommend them to any function or function. - Victor C, Montauk, NY (gig ID# 850089)

Stellar experience all around. Alexander and the Art Strings group worked up two pieces from sheet music I provided them, and they nailed the live performance. On time, professional, and bottom line a great experience. - Dean F, Scarborough, NY (gig ID# 831752)

My daughter's wedding was embellished by Art Strings as an event of a lifetime! These gentlemen are top quality musicians, elegant and accommodating. Thanks you Art Strings! - Susan H, Long Island, NY (gig ID# 872838)

When I found Arts-Strings, I was so wowed by them that I knew I just had to have them at my wedding. At the day of the wedding they looked very professional and played beautifully. As we started to walk down the aisle, I heard them play for the first time, it was so beautiful. It was just everything I expected to hear and more. I remember feeling so proud for having them at my ceremony. It was perfect! They set a very romantic and elegant tone for my ceremony. My guests loved them and said my ceremony was one of the best they've ever been to. I could not have made a better decision. Thank you so much arts-strings. You really made my wedding a dream come true. - Aldrin A, Woodbury, NY (gig ID# 915317)
