These musicians work with the musical director at the church my ceremony was held at all the time. Very professional, easy to get in touch with, and the music sounded fantastic of course. Would recommend again. We went with a string trio.

Thomas Yang was very helpful, and the musicians were very talented. He didn't have two of the songs I wanted in his repertoire, but I was able to have the arrangements done by a family friend, and the quartet played them as though they had been playing them for years! The only little screw up was that he hadn't brought one of these pieces I had asked for. I don't really know how it happened, but when they quartet showed up they didn't have the music to "One Hand, One Heart" which I had requested, and has been played at all of my siblings weddings. Luckily crisis was averted when our singers had shown up with the sheet music, so I didn't see the point in bringing it up with Mr. Yang, but my advice would be to double, and triple check your musical choices with him a week before. The best part? A couple of our friends surprised us by singing, playing guitar, and kazoos during our recessional to All You Need Is Love an homage to my favorite movie "Love Actually" and our quartet went along with it perfectly!

p.s. A member of our quartet looked just like George Lucas, and our guests got a serious kick out of that!

Thomas was recommended to us by a family friend. Apparently, Thomas connects with the best musicians in the area to play at your wedding. You give him an idea of what you like for your wedding, like a cello, violin, and trumpet. Whatever the size or combination, he'll advise you if the combination will be a good fit. He can also work with your church coordinator to ensure that the musicians work seamlessly with the church musicians. We also gave him our music choices and he can recommend what songs would work better in the different parts of the ceremony. At times, it was a bit difficult to reach him, but then again, it was during Easter so they were quite busy, but nevertheless, Thomas did return our calls and quickly reassured us that everything is still going smoothly. At the ceremony, the musicians were so talented and it was absolutely beautiful. The musicians worked incredibly well with the church musicians as if they play together all the time. Parts that I thought only the church musician would play would end up being filled in with a violin, cello, or trumpet giving it a very rich sound. I absolutely LOVED the music at the ceremony. I only wish that I had budget to have them play at the cocktail as well.
