"Otherwise Strings" are a joy to work with. Their performance at my son's wedding exceeded my expectations; they were well-prepared, highly talented, professional in dress and attitude, but also very warm, friendly, and easy to be with. They also helped us, very last minute, when the DJ for the reception was delayed. When asked, they readily agreed to play longer than the original planned cocktail hour, and "stepped into the gap" beautifully. None of the guests even knew there was a problem. I highly recommend them to anyone wanting lovely music, performed with class, for a special event.

We hired Mari for a violin and cello duo during our wedding ceremony, they were excellent. We had a few uncommon pieces we asked Mari to play, she was very accommodating and played the pieces very beautifully. I'm so happy we went with otherwise strings, they made the ceremony very special.

Otherwise Strings was great! We requested special specific music for our wedding (pieces not normally requested) and they played each piece with a high caliber of musicianship. We had several guests comment on how wonderful the strings were as an addition to our wedding ceremony.The group was dressed professionally, arrived on time, played exactly what we asked for, and choose appropriate music to fill the time prior to the ceremony. My husband and I are so glad we choose Mari and Otherwise Strings to be part of our special day!
