Questions about your STRING Performers

Got a questions? We’re here to answer! If you don’t see your question here, drop us a line on our Contact Page.

What will you wear?
Formal wear & all black.
What time do you arrive?
15 minutes before the start of the booking time.
Since we play acoustically, there is no power supply required and 15 minutes is sufficient for us to set up. If you would like us there earlier than 15 minutes prior to the booking, we recommend extending the booking with your Entertainment Producer to cover the time that we are at the venue.
What equipment does the client need to provide?
  • 1 chair for each performer, no armrests please
  • One large umbrella for solo or duo (if outside)
  • Two large umbrellas for trio or quartet (if outside)
  • If possible, a small, private space to leave our cases – especially the cello case
What if we are getting married outside?
Unfortunately we are unable play in direct sunlight or rain (even light rain) as it may damage our instruments. It is important to have a wet weather plan with your venue so that we can go ahead!
For outdoor venues in summer or with minimal tree shade options the following is required:
  • One large umbrella for solo or duo
  • Two large umbrellas for trio or quartet
Do we need a permit if in public?

Nope! ?


It is most appreciated if a meal can be provided for bookings that are longer than 2hrs.

Do you need to Bump In?

As we play acoustically (no AV required) and have reasonably small hand held cases, we can enter any venue fairly quickly and smoothly, with no need to enter throgh security at a large venue like Crown Casino.

Can we request songs not listed on the set list?

Some special requests are possible and are quoted individually based on the song. However not all pieces work as a string instrumental – especially songs heavy reliant on vocals, piano or drums.
A minimum of 30 days notice is required for requests not listed on our set list. This gives time for our arranger to score the piece, however a high priority arrangement can be made in less than 30 days notice at a higher rate.
From our experience we strongly discourage 1 song for the bridesmaids and a different song for the bride. It is very disjointed and doesn’t create the seamless effect seen in the movies where the realities of turning pages and counting beats in do not apply ?

What elements are usually in the ensemble?
SOLO: Violin OR Cello
Great for small guest numbers or a budget option
DUO: Violin & Cello
Great for small guest numbers, small venues/ limited space or a budget option with a melody and accompaniment but limited in amount of music available (max 3 hr booking)
TRIO: 2 Violins & Cello
Great for approximately 100 guests numbers; with a melody & fuller accompaniment; Not all music is available (max 3 hr booking)
QUARTET: 2 Violins, Viola, & Cello
The full sound & all musical options; Most clients with 100+ guests book a quartet; Especially if the event is outdoors where sound escapes
What lighting is needed?
Nothing special, just enough to read our sheet music!
Can you stay longer on the day?
Any time added on the day will be charged as overtime. This is charged strictly in 10 minute increments; We strongly encourage clients to book an extra 15 minutes in their initial booking, as overtime is charged as a much higher rate.
