I've never used gigmasters to find talent before and would HIGHLY reccomend the service to anyone considering it for the first time. I hired Parkwest Strings to perform classical music at a cocktail party for 2 hours and they were extremely professional, punctual, and most importantly- talented. I give them a 10!

We decided to go with a trio and they where awesome. The bride and groom had a version of a Metalica song they wanted and Parkwest was fantastic. Everyone loved them.

Song-Hea and company were amazing. As a fellow musician, I acknowledge talent when I see it and Parkwest Strings are definitely well versed in their skils. Their performance added a classy and elegant sheen to our wedding and made the evening flow from ceremony leading all the way to the dance party. They were awesome!

I hired Parkwest Strings for my son's wedding at Oak Meadows Country Club in Addison on 6/28/08. I was very pleased with their services. They were always easy to get in contact with during the planning of the event and recommended some lovely pieces for each portion of the ceremony. They arrived in plenty of time to set up and were very professional. I would recommend them to anyone.
