What people say Help

  • Professional, courteous and great experience. From the moment I booked the musicians I established a positive engagement with the band leader whose was keen to support my plan to create a wonderful memory. All my guests at the surprise dinner I organised to celebrate wife's birthday and our wedding anniversary were impressed with the wonderful music. Highly recommend.

    Tony, Private Party, London, August 2016
  • We were absolutely delighted with the string trio - our guests loved their performance and we were sad that we didn't get to see more of them as we arrived later to the venue.

    Danielle, Wedding, London, July 2016
  • We were absolutely thrilled by your playing at our wedding. The song requests were exactly what we had imagined and the timing of the songs with the ceremony was perfect. We will be recommending the Onyx String Trio to friends and family!

    Emilia, Wedding, London, September 2015
  • Just wanted to send over a huge thanks from the whole team for your performance at the launch party. Your lively music helped everyone to relax and enjoy themselves. Thanks again and we will hopefully see you back here soon.

    Philip, Private function, London, July 2015
  • Thank you so much to the Onyx String Trio for providing such a balanced and thought-out programme of music at our wedding last week. Jake and I couldn't have hoped for a more appropriate music choice and we especially liked your flexibility with lengths of songs. Thank you for making our day even more special!

    Linda and Jake, Wedding, Kent, July 2015
