We used Steven Vance Strolling Violin for our cocktail hour and dinner service. Our violinist was, Charles May, and he was fantastic! From the day we decided to do a strolling violin, Steven Vance's communication was fantastic! Every guest really enjoyed the music and requested a ton of different genre's of music. I recommend this service for anyone looking for something a little different and elegant to add to a cocktail hour/dinner service!!

A number of my guests commented about how beautiful the ceremony was because of the musicians. Well worth the investment, and actually more affordable than you might think! Highly recommended!!!

At the ceremony itself, he set the tone beautifully and our guests loved the music he played during the following reception. We highly recommend Pablo who works with the Steven Vance company.

All of our guests loved the strolling violinst and continue to speak about it even a month after. We couldn't have been more pleased.

Leading up to our wedding, Steven Vance was great to work with. He was very prompt and flexible, allowing us to customize our violin service to exactly what we wanted. He set us up with Pablo, a strolling violinist who was very professional. I asked Pablo if he could provide top request lists for my guest tables and he exceeded my expectations, making the stationary match my colors. He was very talented and quickly adapted to what my guests asked to hear. I also appreciate that he was very patient with the overly energetic children at our reception who loved him. I am very happy with the service.

Matt P. was our violinist, and we couldn't be happier that he held a special part in our day providing music for the ceremony in conjunction with the organist, as well as music for our guests during cocktail hour. Having the soothing violin music certainly provided the elegant atmosphere which we wanted for our guests.

Matt was easy to get ahold of; his communication, as well as the company itself, was stellar - polite, professional, and timely.

I highly suggest anyone lookimg for strings contact Steven Vance. You will not be disappointed. Thank you, Matt & the rest of the Steven Vance ensemble/staff!

He played all the music pieces we selected beautifully and our guests were quite pleased with his playing during the cocktail hour. We also had DJ Mike Greca at our wedding reception and he was absolutely fabulous! He had our dance floor full the entire reception and everyone had an absolute blast.

We had strolling violinist Pablo Availes & DJ Mike Greca perform at our wedding. We cannot say enough great things about them! Mike suggested that we meet with him prior to our wedding, and we were so glad we did. He was very detail-oriented and made sure he knew the exact flow of the reception. He also made some suggestions and brought up great points that we didn't even think about. Mike has a great personality and is very easy to work with. Meeting with him prior to the wedding made us feel so much more relaxed about the reception because we were confident that we were in great hands. He definitely did not disappoint at the reception. He had most guests dancing the majority of the night, as he played a wide range of great music, while following the requests we had for our "do not play" and "must play" lists. He also had great MC skills.
Pablo was just as great as the strolling violinist. He was SO nice and was an amazing performer. Having the strolling violinist was a great touch that added to the elegance of our wedding. We had a lot of great compliments from our guests. My husband and I both highly recommend Steven Vance, and especially Mike Greca and Pablo Availes.

We booked Steven Vance Violin Services for our wedding. They were extremely responsive and helpful throughout the entire process. They made this part of the planning process very easy. They had lots of videos online for us to pick our perfect music for the ceremony and reception. Ron Molinaro was our violinist, and was so amazing. He played absolutely beautiful music throughout the entire night, and guests were so excited to request songs for him to play! It was an absolutely beautiful and perfect evening! I would book again in a heartbeat.

He played absolutely beautiful music throughout the entire night, and guests were so excited to request songs for him to play! It was an absolutely beautiful and perfect evening! I would book again in a heartbeat. Read less

We hired Steven Vance Strolling Violins to provide ceremony music for our intimate wedding, and we couldn't be happier with the results. Steven and his office were responsive, organized, and professional -- leaving us with little worries on our day unlike some other vendors. We were able to customize our prelude music with standards from the 1920s and 1930s for our vintage theme, as well as have classical selections for our actual ceremony. Steven even looked up traditional British folk music for my British in-laws and learned a selection from the groom's favorite opera for us. His skill level was excellent, and he even stayed to finish playing during our photography session after the ceremony, since we had extra time.

We had Steven on double duty for our ceremony and reception. He was a man of many talents and absolutely killed every one of them the night of the wedding. His ability to play the violin is just amazing. His personality just reflects the whole night through that he is absolutely doing exactly what he was put here to do. He just put all the final touches on our perfect night!

After I got engaged, I thought about what would make my reception memorable. Growing up and attending other weddings, I either felt the music was too loud so no one could talk or that the DJ didn't make much of an effort to keep the reception going. I chose Steve Vance based on reviews I had seen online and he was very quick to get in touch after initially contacting him last November. Steve was not only exceptionally professional and excellent at his craftsmanship as a violinist; he kept all my friends and family (from 3-87) out of their seats the whole time. I never had any concerns about how the reception would be and Steve did an excellent job making things run smoothly. It was a perfect event and day thanks to him.

The Violin & DJ Package provided by Steven Vance was the perfect fit for our wedding. We had a string trio that played lovely music for the ceremony, which was followed by Steven on the strolling violin during cocktail hour. Steven's introductions of our wedding party were done well, and he worked with us to do a special introduction for us that incorporated the violin and a rap song. He pulled it off perfectly! He worked to keep the night moving along and flowing well. For the DJ package, he played the songs we had on our "Must Play" list and played a great variety that kept our dance floor packed all night!! Thanks, Steven!!

He has a wonderful voice for announcing and is the classiest DJ around! He was classy, fun, and reliable! Steven Vance is a must, I couldn't imagine our wedding without him!

And everyone danced all night long after dinner while he was dj. He was easy for us to reach him during the planning process and helped us plan out all the music for the ceremony. Steve was great and professional! I highly recommend him!

I would highly recommend Steven Vance to anyone planning a wedding. We went for the package where he played the violin during the ceremony and dinner, and then he was our reception DJ as well. He was wonderful! The violin music was so classy and beautiful. It made such a fun atmosphere for the dinner and guests really enjoyed making requests from the lists provided on the tables. The DJ music was also great. Steve was so flexible about everything. We made choices of ceremony music from the ample samples and links on his website and when we didn't have ideas for what we wanted we were able to just leave it to him with some general guidelines and he made it work. Most of all I think Steve was great to work with from the beginning because he was just so professional. We really felt like we were in good hands having him keep things on track throughout the evening. He even did a great job pronouncing the complicated Greek names we threw at him!

The violinist that we hired through Steven Vance Entertainment was fantastic! As I was walking up to the church the sound carried outside and I thought to myself that this was perfect. We got married in an log cabin chapel in the mountains and I thought a simple solo violin player would be just what it needed. I was very happy with her, and the music was beautiful. It was just as I envisioned.

Steven Vance played the violin for my ceremony & cocktail hour and was the DJ for the reception. He did a fabulous job and was very professional. He has a great website where you can choose the classical music that best fits the ceremony. During dinner, he plays requests for each table, which is a nice touch. He's a great DJ and really was interested in playing what we wanted to hear. Overall, Steven Vance was great!

Probably my favorite vendor! Working with Steven was fantastic! We had him play for our ceremony and cocktail hour as well as DJ the reception. He did a fabulous job. He went around to the tables during dinner taking requests, which really wowed our guests. He kept the party going all night, and the dance floor was never empty. He even gave updates of the Penguin game throughout the reception! Absolutely wonderful to work with :)

Steven Vance kept the party going at my wedding! During dinner he played the violin which people loved because they could request songs. The dance floor wasn't empty at any point in the reception! He was very easy to work with, very nice and professional and I would recommend him to anyone! He is very talented!

We are so glad we had the opportunity to work with Steve Vance for our wedding! He was very easy to work with and quick to respond to inquiries. We had requested a pretty unconventional song for our recessional only two weeks before the wedding (hoping that he might be able to play it but understanding that there was limited time to learn and practice the song). Steven not only agreed to play the song, but did so beautifully! We couldn't be happier! I would definitely recommend him!

a welcome relief; the ease of working with our musicians was just a smooth as butter and helped pull the whole event together.

Steven Vance was one of my favorite wedding vendors. He provides such a unique and fun service, mmy guests raved about this talented performer. Steven played for my ceremony (with a cellist), played table to table strolling during dinner and was the DJ for the reception. Steven kept people dancing all night and our guests had a great time. My only complaint was Steven played the song "My Girl" at the beginning of the reception/end of dinner and this was the father/daughter dance song. This was disappointing for this song to be played twice and played before the actual dance because it was a surprise for my dad which song we would be dancing to(its his favorite). This take away from the moment the song came on for the father dance since it had been played about an hour before this. This was a small error though in how great the night and Steven Vance's services were. I have recommended him to all of my engaged friends!

My husband worked with Sarah and a string quartet from Steven Vance to provide lovely music for our ceremony and cocktail hour. They were extremely professional and helpful in selecting appropriate music for both parts of the evening. The music was beautiful and definitely added a wonderful touch to our classy and elegant wedding celebration. We also found their prices to be quite reasonable.

Steven was great and very responsive when we first reached out to him and met with him. After we booked with him, we worked with the violinist who played at our wedding. She was professional and responsive, but may not have been accustomed to working with a bride and groom that was so involved in the planning. We wanted to know/select each song that would be played that day. She did share with us that playing the music was somewhat fluid in terms of the timing of the ceremony, which was something I didn't realize. Ultimately, the music sounded great on our wedding day!

They were great, though very pricey. A lot of the guests had difficulty hearing the music even though they were seated right next to the guests. Also, we had to provide our own keyboard. We had a receiving line right after the ceremony, and unfortunately it was along the side of the house and across our driveway. They drove though some of the line, which didn't look very professional. They could have waited ten minutes and been courteous.

Although we contracted for other services through Steve for the wedding this is for the DJ & Ceremony music. DJ Mike gets a 100%!!! He was awesome. Played everything the bride & groom wanted and hte dance floor was never, ever empty.

We also hire the string quartet. They told the bride they would need shade since it was an outside wedding and our vendor was ready to accommodate them as the ride suggested. This was to have them close to the ceremony as it was an outside wedding. They refused the shaded area under an umbrella saying the ground was uneven. Also that the bride knew they needed shade and would be fine sitting where they wanted. The music was lovely if you were standing beside them but once down the aisle no one could hear them. They even asked someone to tell them when the wedding was done because they could not hear the ceremony and would not know when to start playing again. The bride & groom could not hear anything signaling them to walk back down the aisle.

When questioning Steve about this he stated the quartets story was not the same. He took the word of his employees over the customers. I told him a refund was in order and never heard back again. What happened to customer service?

His DJ again was awesome and the quartet was lovely...if you could hear them!
