"I've been to dozens of weddings and heard dozens of bad DJ's and marginal bands. Kristal and I wanted the very best for our wedding. After reviewing several chamber quartets for the ceremony and dance bands for the reception, we decided to hire Will Taylor and Strings Attached. Strings Attached provided every note of music for our wedding and reception--all 6 hours of it--from Pachebel's Canon in D to Led Zeppelin's Rock and Roll. In between there was music as diverse as Franz Lizst's Liebestraum to Alanis Morissette's "Head Over Feet," from Lyle Lovett to Emmy Lou Harris to The Rolling Stones "She's A Rainbow." The musicianship was awesome, from the first note to last, in all cases equal to or better than the original artists. And, in case you think I'm just making noise and have a "tin" ear such is not the case. I have near perfect pitch and over 40 years' experience as a pianist. I have been a guitarist and bass player for well over 30 years and I have written dozens of original compositions and played in a band. I know good and bad music when I hear it. Strings Attached are first class all the way. Hire Strings Attached, and scratch "Wedding and Reception Music" off the items to worry about. Really!"
