Looking for live music that will get everyone on the dance floor? Pop, Rock, Classic Jazz, Swing, Current Hits, you name it!

For over 20 years Strings Attached has helped couple's wedding music dreams come true.

Take a listen below to get an idea of the vast musical landscapes we cover.
When you're considering professional entertainment for your event, consider hiring a group of top notch pros with many years of live performance experience backing Grammy award winners and some of Texas' best known performers like Pearl Jam, P Diddy, Bob Schneider, and many others. We've done live shows with the best. Don't you want that kind of experience at your wedding? Here's a look at what we can bring to your wedding: The Strings Attached Variety Band brings you the best of the eclectic catalogue of music we've developed over 20 years. You might wonder how we can be good at so many genres. We start with a core of Austin's finest musicians, experienced enough to deliver classic rock, Motown, jazz standards and current hits all with the same mastery. Possible instrumentation includes: Bass, drums, electric and/or acoustic guitar, trumpet, piano/keys, and of course Will's signature electric violin. Then we add one or two of our charismatic and versatile singers, according to your tastes and what kind of songlist you'd like. Our recipe is made from a huge and constantly growing repertoire, stellar players and singers, and the vision and direction of a great leader- Will Taylor. Click here to read more about Strings Attached - an Austin Cover Band that won't dissapoint. Western Swing Band
This 6 piece group is sophisticated yet grounded in western swing sty-lings, a bit of mariachi, a touch of Chet Baker played by a family of season acoustic musicians - violin, cello, trumpet, upright bass, classical and steel string guitars, mandolin, female and male vocals and harmonies. Get ready to dance all night with this great Austin Western Swing Band T he Strings Attached String Quartet is like a set of paper dolls with three different outfits.
1) Classical- We bring you the graceful and timeless elegance of classical music played with integrity and confidence. Complete with the tuxedos.

2) Jazz- We've got a terrific list of jazz standards, from Cole Porter to Dave Brubeck to Willie Nelson, arranged for the jazz string quartet. These guys can swing. For an even cooler combo add a vocalist and make it a quintet.

3) Pop- We've noticed a trend for our clients to request more popular and unconventional selections at their events, from Rock-and-roll favorites to current hits. So we've stepped up to meet the demand with quartet arrangements that range from the Beatles to Stevie Wonder to Coldplay. Check out our hip music videos.

An Austin String Quartet that plays whatever you need to make your day the way you want it. Jazz Combo The original Will Taylor ensemble was a jazz group. Booking the jazz combo is a great way to hear these virtuosos really stretch out. They cut their teeth on jazz, which is to say it was a very demanding training ground for every other genre of music that Strings Attached plays. The jazz combo can be a subtle trio, or on up to a six-piece band, depending on what’s right for your event. The repertoire includes classic standards from 20’s, 30’s and 40’s (Sinatra, Cole Porter, Gershwin), big band tunes, and selections from later jazz, like Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock and Pat Metheny. For an extra splash of elegance and light, add a vocalist. The Austin Jazz group with strings attached.

The musicians were terrific and did a great job at my daughter's wedding, but communication was slow. If you can get Will to respond quicker, you will love the final result.

Strings Attached did a beautiful job at our Austin wedding! They provided strings for the ceremony, a jazz trio for the cocktail hour, and a fabulous band at the reception. We couldn't have been happier with the thoughtful way they helped us narrow down the music choices, the ease with which they worked with our planner an venues, and the artful way they got all ages up and dancing on the dance floor. I couldn't recommend them more highly! My advice is to have a short list of 'must play songs' and let them read the room for the rest; it's what they do best! They have regular shows around town, so you can go check them out before you commit! You can't go wrong with Strings Attached!

I had my reservations about booking a live band, and unfortunately all of my fears came true. Let me start by saying the string duo at the ceremony were great -- I have no issues there. But to be completely honest, I would never recommend the dance variety band. They had me fill out the wedding planner to indicate the schedule for the band -- we indicated what time our wedding party would be entering and we also told them that the bride and groom would go straight into our first dance. However, the band had no idea they were supposed to play our first dance and didn't know what song it was. Furthermore, they weren't even set up yet, so our wedding party ended up waiting in the hallway until they finished. I will say that our wedding pictures show only three band members present and playing our first song. We finally made our entrance and did our first dance. We go to sit down, and dinner service kicks off. Rather than continue to play music, the band disappears entirely. We go most of the night without live music. The worst part is that out of the four hours of service, plus the extra cocktail hour, for which we had paid... the band probably played maybe 45 minutes to an hour total. I don't know if they even got through all 10 songs we requested. And even when they did play, they weren't bad, but they weren't that great either. We actually found out a week before the wedding that most of the songs listed on their website were not available for them to play. The actual list of songs we got to choose from pretty much only included Led Zeppelin, the Beatles, and Stevie Wonder. While I love all of these, "Communication Breakdown" isn't exactly a song that gets people up and dancing. And while I know we agreed to provide plated meals for the band, we didn't intend for them to make such use of our bar. Every time I looked up, I saw a band member or two grabbing a drink and then walking out of the reception site. I don't know where the band spent most of the evening, but

World class musicians! We used them for the pre-ceremony cocktail hour (jazz combo), the ceremony (string quartet) and reception (full band). Working with Will was easy -- he knew exactly what we wanted and I didn't doubt him for a second. Extremely professional. As I was walking down the aisle, I thought "damn, that sounds good."

Will Taylor and Celebrate with Strings Attached certainly entertained at our wedding this weekend (6/14/2014)! We contracted the string quartet for the ceremony and the House of Wills Band for the reception. Will also provided the microphones for the ceremony. Our guests all commented on the quality of the performance of both groups. The quartet performed a mix of jazz and pop songs per our request. House of Wills is primarily a Western Swing band but they also accommodated our request for some Texas country. We had some difficulty in the weeks leading up to the wedding reaching Amanda and/or Will; however, it was resolved prior to the wedding and all was as requested and agreed upon. I would definitely recommend Celebrate with Strings Attached. Thanks, Will for making our ceremony and reception a success!

Wonderful and professional. Worth every penny and I regret I did not hire for longer time! Don't hesitate. I think they play a fantastic variety and could make any event memorable. Only heard them live the first time at the wedding reception and they impressed the grooms mother, a career symphony musician!

Strings Attached were awesome! The music that was played created exactly the atmosphere that the bride and groom wanted. We received lots of compliments from our wedding guests. The music of Strings Attached and a glass of champagne were the perfect way to ring in the New Year and congratulate the new couple. I would hire Strings Attached again and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone who wants a band with lots of class and talent!

Well. I wish we could say they were great. Overall, they weren't bad. We've seen Tameca live with her own band and fell in love. But at our wedding, she was late to the reception to play & acted like she didn't want to be there the entire night. Very unprofessional and we were highly dissappointed.
