FAQ
Which areas do you cover?

We are mainly based in East Anglia and cover Norwich, Norfolk, Suffolk and surrounding areas. Please contact us with details of your venue for an accurate quote.

What instruments make up a string quartet and trio?

A string quartet consists of 2 violins, a viola and a cello. A trio can consist of either 2 violins and a cello or violin, viola and cello.

What is the difference between quartet and trio?

The main difference is the volume and thickness of texture. The trio will be less because there is one less instrument but it will still sound great. Our trio repertoire isn’t as comprehensive as quartet so make sure you check our repertoire lists before making a decision. If you’re on a tight budget the trio will obviously cost less.

What happens if one of the musicians is ill on the day?

We have a large pool of professional musicians who can step in - even at the very last minute.

Can you play outside?

Yes, but we can only perform outside under adequate shelter and protection from the elements - this includes both rain and sunshine. A gazebo or similar is the most suitable cover - trees do not always provide adequate shelter and the shade of a building depends on the time of day so please check with your venue.

Can I have a piece of music that is not on your repertoire list?

Yes. If we haven’t already got the music we can either buy it or get it arranged for you. There would be a small charge for the music but we don’t charge for learning new songs. Please ask us if you have a specific piece in mind.

What are your requirements on the day?

We require 4 armless chairs (3 for trio) and a space of roughly 2m x 3m. Shelter must be provided if you would like us to play outside.

Our wedding ceremony and reception are at different venues, are you able to play at both?

Yes no problem - we often move venues. We charge from when we first start playing so please take this into account when deciding on the duration of your booking.

Can we hear you play somewhere?

We exhibit at several of the ‘Bride: The Wedding Show’ events across the region each year where we will be very happy to play your requests and discuss your requirements with you. Please see our events page or facebook for details of upcoming shows.

Do you take breaks?

We generally take a 10 minute break per hour for bookings of 2 hours or more. Breaks will be taken discreetly and we’re more than happy to work around your schedule.

Are you flexible with timings if things overrun?

We try to be flexible where possible but it might not be possible for us to play past the agreed finish time on the day. It’s not uncommon for clients to book additional time to cover all eventualities. Any additional time required on the day would need to be agreed by all members of the ensemble and paid for up front.

Have you got public liability insurance?

Yes. Please click here to confirm our PLI cover. A copy of our certificate is available on request.

How do we make a booking?

We require an initial £150 deposit (payable by bank transfer) and a signed booking form to secure the date.
