Truly fantastic! Kate and her string trio did an outstanding job playing at our wedding ceremony. They even learned to play a song I wrote for my wife...and they were able to learn it very quickly. Everything sounded beautiful. I highly recommend them!

A perfect, seamless and wonderful experience! Kate O'Brien Strings provided the lovely wedding ceremony and dinner party music. From our initial contact with her - she was professional and delightful. Made the entire experience for us so easy and enjoyable. As I walked down the aisle - the music was perfect. Her team provided everything we could have hoped for at our wedding and dinner party. She offered suggestions which made the process less stressful. Our guests totally enjoyed the music and offered many compliments on their performance and sound. Kate was a joy to work with. I would highly and confidently recommend them to all.

Kate was extremely accommodating, prepared, and played a wonderful performance for our Christmas party. We were looking not just for talent but also for a feeling that would touch our guests. Kate and her team brought warmth and love to our event as well as talent and the gift of beautiful music. They were fantastic.

Kate and the O’Brien Strings Trio were amazing during my wedding ceremony. As soon as I listened to the music samples on their website I knew they were perfect! They played a mix of classical and popular music while guests were waiting and were spot-on with their timing when it came to the procession. I was really blown away by how amazing they sounded. They allowed me to customize the music and create the ideal atmosphere for my big moment and it truly felt like a fairytale because of their beautiful music. I would highly recommend them for anyone looking for a string group for their wedding.

We booked the guitar and violin duo for our wedding ceremony. They were incredibly accommodating - my husband is a huge car nut and for our wedding recessional, they came up with an arrangement to Chuck Berry's "Riding Along In My Automobile" for us which was amazing. One of my bridesmaids also sang at our ceremony and Kate was nice enough to meet with her prior to the ceremony to go over the song so they could accompany her. The duo was professional, punctual, and very low maintenance. They helped make our ceremony personal and memorable - I would highly recommend them!!!

So easy to work with, and sounded gorgeous from beginning to end! Thank you for accommodating all my song requests and pulling everything together so nicely. Many people raved about your renditions of Con te Partiro and Yellow. We particularly liked Pachebel and Once Upon a Dream. Despite the wind, their sound was clear and loud and they never missed a beat. Wow, they made for an absolutely beautiful wedding ceremony! So appreciative of all your work to make our day so memorable. Thank you! Jon and Rebecca Stewart

Kate and O'Brien strings helped to make our day so special. They honored all of our requests and were so flexible when we added a last minute song. Our guests are still commenting on the beautiful music! Many thanks for a fabulous job!

I called OBrien Strings at the last minute to play at our wedding ceremony. Kate was so accomodating. She worked with me to choose the prefect music for our ceremony and it made the service so special. I surprised my husband with a special song that Kate played on the violin just for him and it was a magical moment. I would highly recommend OBrien Strings!

I had a wonderful experience with the O'Brien Strings playing our wedding. They were very thorough up front to obtain venue details and help guide us through song selection. On our wedding day, they arrived early to set up and displayed a high level of professionalism. As I stood in the sacristy waiting for the ceremony to begin, I heard their music start for the entrance of guests and was overcome with emotion. My excitement to get married coupled with the O'Brien Strings' beautiful music was the perfect way to bring everything together. I also had numerous guests tell me how beautiful the music was. I would 100% recommend them to anyone. Thank you again!

We couldn't have been happier with the music for our wedding ceremony. O'Brien Strings did a fantastic job, and we've gotten compliments from many of our wedding guests on the ceremony music and how great everything sounded.

O'Brien strings was very prompt in returning emails and worked with us to design a flow of music, offering suggestions when we needed them. The day of the wedding guests continued to comment on how beautiful the music was. It made our day even more special. To top it off their price was more than fair.

Kate O'Brien was a pleasure to work with. Very professional and flexible with a couple who was slighlty difficult to get ahold of in the planning process! Have already recommended her group to another couple I'm working with.
