They specialise in playing background music for wedding and civil ceremonies, drinks receptions and during dinner.

The quartet has continually developed a reputation for their individual style and quality and are all professional accomplished musicians in their own rights.

Their  repertoire is vast from Mozart to Metallica to suit the event and occasion, the group is especially known for it’s zany arrangements built over the years from requests for brides and grooms for ‘their’ special pieces of music. These include the Archers theme tune, match of the day to music like film Plunkett and Macleane and Lord of the Rings to name but a few. So if the quartet doesn’t already play it, they will do a special arrangement just for you.

They also offer a music menu, A chance for you and your guests to get involved on the day by picking what the quartet include to play and what you want to hear. Menus are placed on the dinning tables, along with pens and request slips, guests are asked to jot the name of what they would like to hear and give it to the quartet, then listen out for it and enjoy.
