Megan 11/17/2012 We hired the Antares Musicians very last minute (read: the week before) our wedding. We decided to add a string trio to our ceremony and cocktail hour and it was such a great addition to our day. We worked with Jill on getting a contract together, song choices, and payment under a really tight time crunch but everything worked out beautifully. They had a large number of song choices, all which could be previewed online as played by the actual musicians which was a very cool feature and saved a lot of research time for us. Jill was always responsive- both by phone and email. The execution and set up was great and the music was really lovely. We paid the extra $ for the Bose upgrade to make sure the music was loud enough, especially for our cocktail hour. We're not sure what it would be like without the upgrade, but the system made the music just the right volume for the party, so we'd definitely recommend getting that. We would definitely recommend Antares Musicians for your event!
Michelle 9/15/2012 I hired the Antares Musicians to play my wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. Being the bride, I wasn't out there to hear them during the pre-ceremony and of course missed most of the cocktail hour, but I have gotten fantastic reviews from my guests. When I walked in the cocktail hour I heard a crowd of my guests singing along as they were playing "Don't Stop Believin" which was cool to see! Tammy was super responsive and detailed with her emails leading up. The questionnaire I filled out for them was extremely detailed--I felt like I was taken care of every step of the way. Would definitely recommend the Antares Musicians to all brides in the Baltimore/Washington area!
Aynsley 6/16/2012 Tammy and the rest of the trio that my husband and I had at our wedding were OUTSTANDING. We received many, many compliments on the music. Tammy and Jill were always there to answer my questions, whether it was over email or on the phone. I would hire them for any other event that I have, and would recommend them in a heartbeat!
Cristina 5/27/2012 Tammy and the rest of the Antares musicians did a spectacular job at our ceremony and by the sounds of everyone's reviews the cocktail hour as well. I wish I could have enjoyed cocktail hour too but I heard the music they played was beautiful!
Because it was a Catholic full mass ceremony they were able to recommend a cantor that knew exactly what she was doing. She had a beautiful voice! The music went on without a hitch even without rehearsal. They really know what they are doing!!!
As for price point they were the best I could find in the area without a doubt. They honestly are worth a million times more! :) Tammy will email you back within hours of you reaching out to her. I had a lot of questions and she answered every single one right away. I added the cocktail hour at the very last minute and they had no problems with accommodating us.
Marine Bride 2/5/2011 As many brides quickly discover, wedding planning can be stressful. Do yourself a favor and hire Antares Musicians. This accomplished team of artists is extremely talented, professional, and will work with you to customize music selections to your personal taste. My fiance and I planned our wedding from CA in only 3 months (he's a Marine). Antares Musicians was by far, the most professional vendor we worked with over the course of our engagement. Their attention to detail is top-notch. They are reliable, punctual and above all... gifted musicians. If you hire Antares Musicians for your event, you can breathe a sigh of relief and get ready to relax and enjoy their beautiful music. You will not be disappointed. Happy Planning!
