Slava is an excellent violin player and made our wedding ceremony so memorable! We had a beach wedding & Slava played on the beach as our guests arrived to the wedding! We had so many guests tell us that it was such a nice scene to walk onto the beach and to hear an amazing violin player! We are so thankful Slava was available to play at our wedding!!

Absolutely INCREDIBLE! Slava was professional, very kind, patient, and sooooo TALENTED. He has been playing violin professionally for many years and it really shows in his performance. I hired him to perform for my mother in her home (she broke her ankle and I wanted to surprise her with something special). Slava took extra time to answer all of her questions and shared the history of each song upon her request. His range of knowledge from classical to popular music was astounding. He played so beautifully it brought tears to her eyes. I highly recommend Slava to anyone for any type of performance. 5 stars! We will hire him again for future events.
