I used to play the cello at the Hartt School in their youth program. So, when we started thinking about ceremony musicians we only thought of one place! They did not disappoint! It was beautiful music & they even composed a piece of music that was not originally created for the cello. Awesome!!

Although we were unable to make it to the cocktail hour when our string duet was playing our guests have a lot of great feedback about the musicians and the atmosphere that their music created. A big problem that I initially had is communication and contacting someone to speak with in the office. After emailing them and having them advise to call I was unable to ever get anyone on the phone and left several messages without a return call. It took me sending a not so happy email for someone to contact me back. Once the musicians were picked however it was a very pleasant communication experience. The selected musician contacted me to see if I had any special requests or selections that I really wanted or didn't want, very willing to work with what I was looking for. Overall I say that if you can get past the initial booking process then it's smooth sailing and worth the extra money.

The trio was the added touch we needed! The gig line was busy a few times and emails were a little slow but overall it was perfect. I liked being in contact with the players before our big day and thankful they were able to learn a song for us.

Great musicians. Very professional. We got tons of compliments about how unique and elegant it was to have the ceremony and cocktail hour with classical musicians. I wish they played some jazz though :)

Mary emailed me about 2 months before the wedding to discuss music. She was able to give me a helpful website for ceremony music ideas. She also gave us options for what we wanted the musicians to wear which was nice as well.

The only request I would make is they play a little louder.

These guys did such a great job! We hired a duet--cello & violin. They are so experienced and know ceremony music well. I however, did not know the music and I let them pick out selections they thought appropriate. All I requested was that Canon D be my processional. EVERYONE was blown away at how professional and talented our musicians were. They knew what they were doing!!

Bonnie, who is the coordinator at the gigline, was so helpful at setting things up and explaining everything. I would hire them again in a second!!! I highly recommend them---the prices just cannot be beat either!

Outstanding value for their service. True professionals but you will not be charged ridiculous amounts of money like those private individuals.

We couldn't be happier with the violinist that we found through the gigline. She was talented, professional, and a pleasure. Their rates are great!

Quality of musicians was excellent - these students can definitely play - but communicating with Gigline and the musicians themselves was next to impossible. (We did not hear from our musicians until 6 days before the wedding.) We asked for a violinist and a cellist, but received two violinists instead. After numerous emails and phone calls, they still played the wrong music during our ceremony. The show went on and our wedding was still beautiful, but in hindsight we would have gone with someone else.

It took A LOT of prodding to get the Gigline contacts to actually connect me with a musician. However, the musician they set us up with was extremely responsive and accomodating. Also a good value.
