… But one thing a couple (that ended up booking us) said, got us thinking. Interestingly, whilst she wanted to book us, he had been against the idea. He just didn’t think that he’d want a string quartet there for their renewal of vows party. You know, because classical music is a bit stuffy etc.
What changed his mind?
Well, luckily for us, the couple had to walk past us twice as we were near the door. Crucially, when they walked past the second time we were playing something different – Bittersweet Symphony by The Verve. The guy loved this track. Furthermore, he told us that he was sold. He’d completely backtracked after realising we could play his favourite music. They had fun chatting with us whilst looking through our repertoire. But more significantly, they couldn’t believe the variety of music that we have.
So, when it comes to wedding / event song choices, why not add a touch of class? You don’t need to sacrifice your musical tastes to enjoy the stylish sound of a string quartet. We love playing music from all sorts of genres and periods. Yes, we can and love to play Classical, but more importantly, we also love Pop, Rock (and others) too!
