We have played at hundreds of venues in Kent, London and the home counties. Venues varying from the grand such as the Imperial War Museum, Claridges, Penshurst Place, Chiddingstone and Hever Castles, to smaller hotel venues, pubs, village halls, even a bandstand in a village fair – and many gazebos and marquees in private homes and gardens of all sizes.

The players are all highly experienced professionally trained musicians. Music is what we all do for a living, full time. Our guarantee to you: beautiful music played for your event at the highest possible standard.

We can provide an elegant and entertaining atmosphere for your special day, playing music ranging from Vivaldi, Bach and Mozart through to Cole Porter, the Beatles, Blur and Coldplay with an overall classical feel.

We are always very happy to offer friendly advice about suitable repertoire, when and where to have musicians playing, and can arrange pieces to order for a fee.
