We are the most entertaining and versatile string ensemble you'll ever see.. Completely at home doing the whole seated background, elegant string trio thing (we all trained at the best music colleges there are), but we can then also get up, get rid of our music stands and really give your guests a show to remember- singing, dancing, serenading, flirting and getting the audience to clap along in delight! Our repertoire includes popular classics, more recent pop tunes, foot tapping gypsy numbers as well as any special requests you might want to throw our way! We are completely self contained- no mics or stages needed.
We are new to Poptop but have been playing at weddings and parties for the last 10 years, all over the UK and beyond!

I divide my time between Cambridge and London, so am equally happy playing in either of these cities with no extra travel fee.
Live background music can greatly enhance and add a touch of class to any wedding or event. Solo cello in particular has a versatility that other instruments lack: thought to most resemble the human voice, it lends itself to singing beautiful melodies, and can simultaneously provide it's own harmonies. Not to mention the wealth of music that has been written for it over hundreds of years, of which Bach is only one!
Organising an event can be stressful enough as it is, so to put potential clients' minds at ease, I can assure you of the following:
1. I will provide the highest quality of cello playing. I won scholarships to train at top London and International conservatoires (the Guildhall School of Music, the Royal Scottish Academy of Music, and the Conservatorio della Svizzera Italiana in Switzerland), and gr...

I am planning a wedding at Northbrook House, Surrey on 11 November 2017.
I am looking for a violinist to play as people arrive, as I walk down the aisle and whilst reception drinks are taking place.
The event will be indoors and start time will be 1.45 with ceremony starting at 2.30 and reception drinks finishing at 4pm.
Beautiful and traditional wedding will be held in Brewerstreet Farmhouse in the end of September. We invited 120 guests (20-68 age range). Now then we decided to find a perfect saxophonist, I hope for your help. Thnks.
Hi, I am John, I want to hire an harpist on our wedding, desirably it must be a girl. We invited 50 people in Addington Palace in Surrey and the event is shueduled on 17th July. I’ll appreciate whether you send me the quotes asap.
We are hosting a performance benefit in Debenhams in Sutton Surrey to raise money for children in need.

Hi, I’m Helen, my fiance is fond of guitar playing, so I want to make him a surprise on our wedding. We plan to marry in the end of August in Farleigh. About 60-70 people will be invited. Could you suggest me several variants to choose?
Hello, my name is Arnold, I’m making a party in honor of the big progress on my business, and I want to share it with my close people, so the party will be not that big, just 25 people. And that will occure in Hilton Cobham over the weekend. On this occasion I’d like to hire a cellist. Waiting your offers.
I have had a look at your website and wanted to enquire for a wedding on the 22nd of July 2017 at Farnham Castle. It is a fairly traditional wedding with a religious ceremony in the castle chapel, followed by some canapés (with some music from you) and a wedding breakfast.
We are looking to have 2, 3 or 4 musicians to play at the beginning of the wedding ceremony, a few hymns during the ceremony, and for about another 45min after the ceremony. We would require you to move from the chapel, where the ceremony is taking place, to the Stone hall after the ceremony. Overall this would be a total of 1:30h to 2h.
If you could send me a quote for a duo, trio and quartet for 2h, along with any additional charges.
If you could also send me a repertoire of hymns so we can consider the ceremony accordingly.
I look forward to hearing back from you soon.
hi there, i am in the process of planning my mums 50th birthday party and I am looking for a singer who will sing mainly motown/soul music. Your set list looks great. The event is being held as a private party on Saturday 21st november 2015 in Camberley, Surrey. I wondered if you could give me an idea on your usual set times and pricing and availability?
We have a wedding arranged at Frensham Pond Hotel, near Farnham and would be grateful for your cost for a string quartet to cover play timings of;
3/4 hour as guests arrive, 12.00-12.45,
1/4 hour for Bride entrance and register signing, ceremony 1-1.30pm
1 1/2 hours during photos/drinks, 1.45-3.15

We're looking for musicians that will fill the church. Luckily our church is more of a very tiny chapel, holding 120 people max.
In terms of music we're looking for sentimental covers of fairly modern songs. The most important of which is a particular song which is very special to my partner and I: Real Love by John Lennon and wonderfully performed by Regina Spektor.
looking for music to play during my wedding ceremony at St Andrews Church in Gatton Park Reigate Surrey.
We are interested in a Duo to play 4 songs.
The Ice Dance by Danny Elfman (Edward Scissorhands)
A hymn we have yet to choose
Phil Collins Groovy Kind of Love
Wedding March at the end of the ceremony
Service to last around 1 hour.
Dom played at our daughters wedding both at the church for the register signing and at the wedding breakfast. He was brilliant, very friendly and many of the guests complimented him on his playing. One of the guests has since booked him for her wedding.
Matthew is an excellent bagpiper. He played tunes that everyone recognised, and when he had finished playing he answered various questions about his tartan and himself which was great to hear. Myself and some other family members will be followers of Matthew from now on. I will definitely recommend him to others.
