Chose Accolade Musicians after a ton of research! So glad we did! This group was so wonderful to work with and very responsive with emails and phone calls. They literally can play ANYTHING and were able to obtain the sheet music and learn a few songs we wanted for our ceremony!! Accolade was very professional and a great price for such a high quality service. They also played a great mix of music for our cocktail hour. We received several compliments on their performance. We would use them again in a heartbeat!

We hired Accolade to play at our New Years Eve ceremony and cocktail hour for our wedding. Victor was really easy to work with and was able to incorporate our music requests. They were even able to play some fun contemporary songs. The music added a layer of romance and ambiance to our wedding and made it magical. I would recommend them a million times over. A++++

We found Accolade through Gigmasters. They had a competitive rate for the string quartet we were looking for for our ceremony. Our point of contact was Victor. He was very responsive over e-mail. On Accolade's website, they have a number of sample audio files that you can listen to specific tracks. From there, we chose our selections for our ceremony. What was nice is that in his list of music to choose from, he did include a lot of contemporary songs that we ended up using for our ceremony.

It made us a little nervous that we had only communicated with Victor via email ( I believe he offered to meet in person, but due to schedules we declined), but on the day of, him & his quartet were on time, and aware of exactly what was going on. The quartet gave a special feel to our ceremony.

I would definitely recommend Accolade, my only recommendation for them would be to put more sample tracks on their website so people will know how certain non-traditional songs will sound.

As an out of town bride I had some reservations about hiring a string trio long distance. Luckily Accolade Musicians were easy to work with. After placing a request on Gigmasters I received a fast quote which was followed up by great email communication. When we were closer to the big day Victor was helpful in making music selection suggestions. We heard some great comments from our guests at cocktail hour about the contemporary music the trio played. Other than a small pause during the ceremony when we transitioned from vows to the unity candle everything went beautifully. I would recommend Accolade Musicians.

I loved that they had a repertoire of both classical wedding music as well as contemporary music that all the guests would recognize! Victor was great to work with and I would recommend Accolade Musicians to any other bride.

Accolade Musicians were perfect for our ceremony musicians. From the start, Victor was dependable, personal, experienced, and reasonably priced. He was very helpful throughout the planning process and gave us several ideas and tips to consider to make the day perfect. We were so glad we took his recommendations because many of our guests commented on the beautiful ceremony music. I would recommend Accolade musicians and definitely hire them again if I ever need a string quartet.

If you are looking for a string quartet, definitely contact Accolade Musicians. They are amazing musicians and are reasonably priced. They provided music as our guests were arriving to the ceremony, our ceremony music, and music for our cocktail hour. They can seriously play just about anything! All of our guests were very impressed and the music for our ceremony was just perfect. Victor was very quick to respond to all my emails and had great suggestions for helping me select songs for our ceremony. This group is awesome! :)

victor sotelo along with his group of musicians were beyond phenomenal for my wedding. he was able to obtain the stevie wonder arrangements for my ceremony and they played beautifully. i was definitely an overeager bride and victor was kind an understanding. i offered to pay fee in order to preview the songs we requested for our ceremony (did i mention i was an overeager bride??). i have since learned requesting to preview your ceremony music is a bit untoward. victor never once made me feel as if my requests were unusual and i really appreciate that gesture. all this to say it never hurts to ask and be willing to pay for the musicians time!

victor and accolade musicians went above and beyond to make my wedding ceremony special and their contribution was invaluable!
