I hired Stephanie Quinn and musicians she selected to play as a string quartet at my father's memorial service. I was incredibly impressed from start to finish. Stephanie was responsive and so easy to work with. I especially appreciated that she was as comfortable with me choosing musical selections as with giving suggestions. We chatted a bit about my father and the tone of the event, and then she emailed me wonderful ideas for music that gave the ceremony a warm, personal touch. The musicians were on time, impeccably dressed and played beautifully. All of the guests commented on how wonderful the music was. I was very grateful and would definitely hire them again.

Quintessential Strings was excellent! Extremely talented and versitile, Stephanie and her group played Classical to Jazz to Irish folk to Rock and Roll on strings! It was exactly what we wanted: classical leading up to the ceremony, Canon in D for the bride (played perfectly), classical to begin the reception while people were eating and getting their first drink, then funner, up beat jazz tunes, Irish folk and Rock and Roll as the food ended and the dancing began. It was perfect! All this from one group! I highly recommend Stephanie for your wedding or any event.

Quintessential Strings’s Response:

I wish to mention here deep gratitude to the many wonderful people like Sam, I had the pleasure to work with here on GigMasters. To be a high caliber full-time free-lance musician means we spent our childhood in a practice room followed by dedication and financial sacrifice as adults. We musicians appreciate the professionalism and respect of reading, signing, and abiding by our contract agreement. Making music is my job. Imparting beauty and expression is my joy! Thank you all!

Stephanie was wonderful! The talent and energy she brought to our intimate ceremony was really the icing on the wedding cake. She was very helpful in picking our the perfect musical selections and giving her suggestions as to placement of them in the ceremony. Stephanie was very positive and energetic when communicating with me. She was early the day of our ceremony, which began at 6:30 am and was nothing short of professional in every way at the event. Played on que and was very accomodating. She even braved the 50 degree weather! Music was not something I had to worry one second over. She made it flawless.
