PROFESSIONAL MUSIC BOOKING

Providing the highest quality musical services for individuals and organizations

WEDDINGS & PARTIES

“If music be the food of love, play on.”  ~ William Shakespeare 

Your wedding is one of the most special life events you will experience. The memories of family and friends together, the sound of beautiful strings escorting you down the aisle, that priceless memory of when you say “I do”. The Artists are professionals at helping you paint this picture that you will remember fondly forever. Whether it’s with a magical string quartet, an intimate string duet, a lively jazz combo, or even a small orchestra, the music at your wedding will be the soundtrack of your most memorable day!

Need a special song? We do arrangements for your chosen ensemble. In fact, one of our clients, who had been dating his fiancée for over eight years, had chosen an obscure but adored piece by Vivaldi to surprise his bride, and when we assured him we could play it at his wedding ceremony, he broke down with emotion. And we do any musical genre: classical, popular, rock, jazz; just ask!

Not only do The Artists provide the highest quality services, but we respond quickly and efficiently to all questions, and we are always calm, cordial, and flexible as each event unfolds. We have serviced countless weddings and other celebrations, and are confident that we have seen everything!  We can adapt at a moment’s notice to any situation. We offer as much consultation as you desire to make sure you feel comfortable with your choices for your special day.
