$150 - $1000 per event
My name is Nick Dinnerstein and I'm a classical cellist, based in Boston. I'm a graduate of Mannes: College of Music in New York City, but relocated here to study further and perform.

I'm very experienced as a classical concert performer (solo cello, with piano, and in string ensembles) and have performed concerts at venues, ranging from Cape Cod Cultural Center to the New York Historical Society to Mahidol University in Thailand. I also play popular music; I most recently performed as a member of the Vitamin String Quartet with 30 Seconds to Mars in an acclaimed performance on the MTV Unplugged series.

As a performer for events, I've played dozens of weddings, cocktail hours, parties, and other functions. I primarily perform classical music, but if you have other requests, I'd be happy to accommodate. In terms of ensemble, solo cello has always been a popular format, but I also regularly perform with a pianist and can also play as part of a string duo, string trio, or string quartet (I perform with many talented violinists and violists in the area).

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or would like references from past concerts and events.

Thank you!

Nick was kind to come down to Cape Cod and play at my wedding. We had song requests for the ceremony [Good Feeling by the Violent Femmes and Forget Me Not by the Civil Wars], and Nick took them on with no problem, even suggested classical songs to play before and after the ceremony. But to me the most important part was his flexibility. He began playing 15 minutes before the ceremony began and then it started to rain! While many guests took cover in our garage, Nick reestablished himself in our breezeway and continued playing until the shower petered off. THAT is professionalism! I'd recommend Nick to anyone, as he was truly a great addition to our day!

I was about half way down the aisle when I realized that I hadn't yet looked toward my fiance. Instead, I was twisting my neck backward watching Nick's bow glide along the strings. The music was lovely. I was actually envious of my guests who got to listen to him longer. What a weird feeling to experience on "my day." That said -- Nick worked with me extensively on selecting the songs to play during my wedding. He gave me a suggested song list, emailed me YouTube clips, and told me which songs would work best together. It was easy to get in touch with Nick, and he responded to every phone call and email. I would definitely recommend hiring him.

We felt extremely lucky to have found Nick. We had a 'wedding emergency'. Two days before my daughter's wedding, the person that we had arranged to play music as she walked down the isle fell through. I requested a quote from Gigmasters and Nick responded almost immediately. He was the ultimate professional. He called several members of the family to discuss the arrangements, made recommendations on music for the prelude, processional and postlude (which were wonderful), and also provided alternate suggestions. He sent links of music via email for us to listen to and approve, showed up on time and played like an angel.
