Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on August 29, 2021From Ann Arbor, MI

The Stringtown Trio was perfect for my mother in laws 90th birthday party! They knew the popular songs she requested and we all enjoyed listening, singing along and dancing to the Irish music!

Memorial ServiceReviewed on June 15, 2019From Lansing, MI

Robert was excellent to work with from initial communications through the end of our event. I am especially appreciative of his talent and flexibility with our performing needs. Looking forward to their other performances soon!

WeddingReviewed on August 23, 2018From Suttons Bay, MI

This band was the perfect addition to my northern Michigan wedding at a winery & vineyard in Suttons Bay. I hired them to play for the entire duration of my wedding (pre-ceremony, aisle walk, recessional, cocktail hour & reception). They played exceptionally well & really cater to your every request & question. Robert was always courteous to answer my gazillion emails, even working with my sister to perform a country song during the reception. They are worth every penny! I am extremely happy I booked Stringtown Trio & not your typical mediocre DJ. Dancing with the groom to Can't Help Falling in Love was an unforgettable moment forever etched in my heart.
