Add a little old-fashioned ritz and charm to your event and book The Heyday String Quartet! Based in Manchester, swing and vintage repertoire available.

Wearing 1950s dresses and playing tunes from the 1930s to the 1950s, these four starlets cannot fail to add a little vintage glamour to your special occasion. All four members are exceptional musicians with years of experience playing for some of the world's top artists and entertaining guests at thousands of weddings and events across the UK.

If you are looking for something more traditional or modern, the Heyday String Quartet can play classical and pop tunes.

For smaller occasions and budgets the 'Vintage Violinist' is also available to play with or without professional backing tracks and amplification.
