They were amazing! Songhea is clearly a very talented musician and she conducted herself very professionally. The strings sounded beautiful during our ceremony; we couldn't be happier! I strongly recommend them if you want to add a touch of high class to your event.

I found most of the vendors for my May wedding online using yelp, wedding wire, the knot, etc. I scoured reviews and hoped the best! And with Songhea and a Parkwest Strings-- that's what I got. It was a great and easy experience working with Songhea from start to finish. We chose a wide variety (think everything from Snoop Dogg to Tom Petty). And they could play everything! Just one tip: make sure they can be heard. Our crowd drowned them out during cocktail hour.

Parkwest Strings was amazing. Not only did they fulfill my request of playing the song Home by Edward Sharpe, but their music and demeanor were more than we could have asked for. The music was the best addition to our ceremony and I'm greatful that we used them!

Park West Strings did a great job playing for our ceremony. They had a lot of song choices as well as pricing options. They were a great value for their great talent.

I could not be more happy with my decision to hire Parkwest Strings to provide the music at my ceremony and cocktail hour. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a 4 string quartet. I wish I had taped the ceremony because all I have are my memories of how amazing they sounded.

Parkwest String was one of the most beautiful quartets - they truly made the ceremony the elegant and classy theme I was going for. All of my guests were blown away by their performance & I received countless compliments on the music and how it made the ceremony extra special. Songhea was great to work with and she even let me pick my own music at no extra cost - she works with only the most quality professional quartets and you could tell in the way they played the songs for the first time - I have nothing but compliments and good reviews all the way around and I would use this quartet again.

Songhea and her musicians are so incredibly talented. We wanted only untraditional/more modern songs and they played them beautifully. They’re also very flexible, willing to learn new songs, and even rehearsed with one of our friends that sang during our ceremony and it was terrific. Highly recommended!

Parkwest Strings performed at my wedding a few weeks ago at the Knickerbocker Hotel in downtown Chicago and It was an absolute pleasure to have them as part of our special day. Parkwest played from the wedding ceremony prelude until the end of the hour long cocktail reception. Unfortunately my wife and I didn’t get to enjoy them as much as our guests (we had pictures to take) but everyone said that they filled the room with the beautiful sounds of both Classical and Contemporary music. Throughout the entire process Songhea was professional, attentive to our needs and requests, worked around our hectic hours when it came to consultation times and gave great input on song selection. She suggested two or three songs for each portion of the ceremony and used our selections to determine what our guests would enjoy for the reception. I would highly recommend Parkwest Strings. I think they would bring that special touch of class to any event.

I loved, loved, loved these musicians. Working with Songhea was so easy. Every song I requested, the musicians were able to accommodate. They were also very flexible, even when it started raining. Also, my husband had planned a surprise for me and needed the musicians to provide some special music, which they were able to do on short notice. They were wonderful. Thank you Parkwest Strings!
