There is nothing quite like the experience of enjoying live string music. Whatever the occasion may be, having a group of string musicians perform for your guests adds an extra element of class, ambience, and elegance that is simply unparalleled. The dream of Dockside Strings is to provide this experience for you and your guests.

Our string players perform with the Wilmington Symphony Orchestra and Tallis Chamber Orchestra. Our musicians also teach private lessons in their home studios, as well as at Cape Fear Community College.

We offer a wide variety of musical selections, including classical and romantic favorites. We also love to spice things up a bit with jazz, pop, contemporary, and holiday tunes. We look forward to playing for you!???

We would be delighted to perform for your next event. Set the tone with Dockside Strings!

Dockside Strings was awesome! Although I only got to hear them play while walking down the aisle and from a distance during cocktail hour while we took pictures, we were told by many guests how beautiful they sounded! They were SO easy to work with and played exactly what I asked. Dan also sent us a great picture of the ceremony space afterwards. We highly recommend Dockside Strings!!

We hired Dockside Strings to perform at our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour - they were perfect! They were responsive and professional in the lead-up to our wedding, and their music on the day was absolutely beautiful - it really added depth to the event. They were also incredibly flexible and played a few of our, somewhat non-traditional requests, which was so much fun. Highly recommend.

The dockside strings made our ceremony dreams come true! Their music was just so beautiful. They even stuck around a little longer at no charge and played during our post ceremony photos with family. Working with them was so easy. They even sent us a sweet email after the wedding with a very cool photo of our set up and their violin! They are so talented, professional, and thoughtful!

We wanted something special for our ceremony and they really added that! They were wonderful musicians and our music sounded great! Not only that, but they learned not one, but TWO songs for our ceremony!! There were so many special songs that I wanted and Dockside Strings allowed me to have all of them for my wedding. The song sounded so beautiful as I walked down the aisle and it brought tears to my Dad’s eyes first, then mine, then my groom’s. It really was a special moment with the most wonderful song. I’ll always think highly of Dockside Strings. They were so accommodating and professional. Thank you so much for making my ceremony and cocktail hour so wonderful!!

Dockside played such beautiful ceremony music at my wedding! Dan is very quick to respond through email, or however you choose to contact him. They had all the songs I requested already in their repertoire and hearing them played live on our special day was amazing. They were very professional, on time, and the guests loved them. Definitely recommend them!

I hired Dockside Strings to perform at a reception for an anniversary. They were elegant and professional, punctual, and courteous. This ensemble was outstanding in every regard and the music was absolutely beautiful. Dockside Strings has the sound you might expect to find for an expensive price in a large city, but, fortunately, they are local and affordable.

Dockside Strings were fantastic. Dan, the group’s lead, was extremely professional and made the whole process a breeze. He responded to emails quickly and supported us throughout. For our processional and bridal entrance we asked for two songs that were not in Dockside Strings’ repertoire. Dan arranged the songs and they were perfect! He even sent us a recording of one of the songs so we could listen in advance.

On the day of the wedding we had to change venues at the last minute due to weather. Whilst we were getting everything re-arranged, Dockside Strings just set up and started playing to entertain our guests – they just took the initiative themselves, keep everything on track and all our guests were happily entertained while we were elsewhere. When we did get the alternative venue arranged, they moved location without any hassle. Aside from the outstanding music they were extremely pragmatic and professional. We are grateful for their initiative.

We cannot recommend Dockside Strings highly enough – they are excellent musicians and are great to work with!
