"I didn't get to personally meet the musicians on my wedding day but, their music was absolutely beautiful. According to my directors, they were on time and very professional. It was a very special touch to our romantic wedding. Susan was awesome during the planning process, answering all of the questions that I had. Thank you!!"

"The quartet was really phenomenal! I wish so much I had had more time to enjoy listening to them and thank them for what an incredible job they did, but I was a little busy. The guests had nothing but wonderful things to say about them and it added such class to our special day. Thank you!"

"THE SUSAN JONES JAZZ QUARTET PERFORMED AT OUR HOME FOR A WEDDING ENGAGEMENT / CHRISTMAS PARTY, AND THEY WERE FANTASTIC. THEY ARE VERY ACCOMPLISHED MUSICIANS AND THEY WERE THE HIGHLIGHT OF THE PARTY. BECAUSE WE WERE SO IMPRESSED, WE ARE GOING TO BOOK THEM FOR THE UPCOMING WEDDING. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEM FOR ANY SOCIAL EVENT; YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED."

"We had a great experience working with String of Pearls. Susan was super easy to work with and provided great suggestions for the music selections. Her pricing is very reasonable. They arrived early on the day of the wedding and played beautifully!!! I am a huge fan of classical music and to have a string quartet play for my wedding ceremony was a dream come true. Susan and the other musicians from String of Pearls really made the ceremony special! They even stuck around after the ceremony and played for a little while as everyone transitioned into cocktail hour."

"I can't speak enough to the great experience we had with String of Pearls. We hired a pianist for our ceremony through them and they were extremely responsive, well coordinated, accommodating with our song requests, and offered recommendations to help us fill out our service. I was so extremely pleased as a bride to have not had to worry about this extremely important element of our day. Our sincere thanks to Jim Levy, our pianist, and to Susan Jones, the String of Pearls coordinator. "

"My husband and I chose String of Pearls for our wedding. They were wonderful, and played all of our requested non-repertoire songs perfectly - even Metallica sounded great. As a trio (guitar, bass, violin), they played our ceremony and then the cocktail hour. Our guests loved the music, and it was wonderful to walk down the aisle with my dad to one of my favorite Beach Boys' songs. My husband and I were so pleased, and could not recommend Susan and her crew more. They were professional, helpful, and above all, wonderfully talented musicians. Thank you for making our wedding so memorable!"

"I was able to preview String of Pearls in a coffee shop in MD before they performed at my wedding. Susan was very professional and took several requests from me at the coffee shop. She communicated well via email and phone as we were planning for my wedding reception. She accommodated for all of my special requests, including learning new songs with her trio and adding 2 soloists last minute for my first dance and my father-daughter dance. She even provided a soloist (the bass player) for the mother-son dance. They are very good with improv and even invited one of my soloists up to sing additional songs. I'm so very pleased and would choose them to do it again. "

"Susan's crew as fantastic!
First, they are extremely talented and played so many great Christmas Carols that were just perfect for our 'Old Fashioned Christmas Party' theme. Second, they were very professional and checked with me about the dress for the occasion so that they looked perfect for the evening. Finally, they were very gracious to allow a "flash mob" of carolers invade their space a little bit! This was sort of a last minute change and they were incredibly generous of their time and just went with it.
I will ABSOLUTELY call them again if I need a group with string talent--hands down, they are awesome!"

"I highly recommend String of Pearls! My overall experience with them was excellent! I had all kind of requests for them and they just went out of their way to play what I wanted when I wanted it. The months preceeding my wedding were very hectic but string of pearls made it incredible easy by reaching out to me, making suggestions and accomodating to the different changes I made (many of them at the last minute). Great personalized service since I had direct access to them through e-mail and phone. Great talent and the best pricing out of every quote I got. Thank you so much! "
