FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

SHOULD I HIRE A STRING QUARTET OR A STRING TRIO?

We will always recommend to hire a string quartet if your budget allows. Our string quartet consists of two violins, a viola and double bass, which allows for a fuller sound and richer harmonies. However, we can also cater for a string trio, which consists of two violins and double bass.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A CELLO AND DOUBLE BASS?

 

The double bass is a larger and therefore a lower sounding instrument. This provides a stronger bass foundation to the overall sound to the quartet; however, we can always opt out the double bass for a cello if you would prefer (in either quartet or trio formation).

DO YOU ONLY PLAY CLASSICAL MUSIC?

 

Not at all! We also have a full list of pop music which you can find on our REPERTOIRE page. We also have a selection of Christmas songs and can accomodate requests.

WHEN DO I NEED MUSIC FOR MY WEDDING CEREMONY?

 

We usually suggest the following (although not every ceremony is the same so we can also cater for additional moments such as Communion): 

  • BACKGROUND – around 10-15 minutes of music as the guests arrive before the ceremony begins

  • ENTRANCE – one song for the entrance of the bride

  • SIGNING OF THE REGISTRY – one or two songs depending on how many people need to sign/if photos are being taken

  • EXIT – one song for your grand exit, although we will usually play until everyone has left (the building)

  • BACKGROUND – optional for if you want to have music whilst congratulations are in process

DO YOU PLAY OUTSIDE OF PERTH?

 

We sure do! We love a good road trip. For all locations one hour outside of the Perth CBD, there is a travel fee of $30 per musician (x2 for a round trip), and an additional petrol fee.
