  • A string trio from Antares played for our ceremony and cocktail hour, and they were wonderful. Tammy was our point person before the wedding, and she was incredibly responsive and helpful with picking out our processional and recessional music, and she was also really communicative with our day of coordinator about cueing the ceremony. It’s very clear that Antares musicians have a ton of experience with weddings. I didn’t get to hear much of the pre ceremony or cocktail hour music, but I received so many compliments about the fun music they played. We asked them to play more contemporary music, and our guests loved hearing instrumental versions of many songs, especially the Game of Thrones theme song! I highly recommend Antares – they’re incredibly professional and experienced, and of course, their music was top notch.

  • From the moment I looked at the very organized and extremely informative , complete with wonderful Sound Clips, Antares Musicians website, I knew immediately that I found a very professional and seasoned group to play at my daughter's Wedding Mass. Our strings trio + flutist ensemble were simply magnificent and their beautiful music set the perfect tone for the ceremony. The collective raves and praises from our guests ..many music aficionados among them..were endless. We also hired through Antares Musicians a fabulous pianist who provided lovely background music during our sit - down dinner. Equally important when planning any musical event is the need to communicate with the hired group. Again Antares did not disappoint. My point person Jill ( flutist) was consistently responsive to any and all questions throughout the planning process and she made EVERYTHING flow seamlessly for me. Antares Musicians are perfect in every way! I not only highly recommend them but will unequivocal... Read more

  • The Antares Musicians played for our wedding ceremony and a 1-hour cocktail reception. They were outstanding!!! The live music added something special to our wedding. They added a personal touch to the ceremony that wouldn't have been present with a DJ. The musicians were wonderful and accommodated our special requests for a couple of tunes that we both liked. We highly recommend these musicians-----our ceremony was beautiful and we loved the music.

  • Antares did such an amazing job at my wedding. They played all of our musical selections beautifully, we got tons of compliments all night. Jill was a pleasure to work with and answered all of my questions in a timely manner. If I had to plan my wedding over again they would still be one of the fist vendors I booked!

  • Antares did a great job providing our ceremony and cocktail hour music. They are really talented and have an awesome music selection. They are also really organized and made planning the ceremony/cocktail hour music portion of our wedding a breeze. They provided us with a detailed questionnaire which we completed. From there Antares had all of the information they needed. They prepared a cue sheet which they shared with us, and on the wedding day everything went off without a hitch.

  • If you'd like to feel like an absolute dream on your wedding day, please choose Antares Musicians. On our wedding day, Antares did our ceremony music. It was absolutely beautiful. They were sooo easy to work with and started and ended all of the ceremony music with excellent precision. There is definitely a difference between the songs they played so beautifully themselves versus music coming from a speaker (not saying that's bad at all). But if you've got an ear for clear, beautiful music - I would highly suggest them!

  • We used the Antares musicians for our ceremony and they were an amazing addition to our wedding. They provided beautiful music and were so easy to work with! They are responsive, detail oriented and professional. We couldn't have asked for anything more! (Side note: guests could not stop talking about how much they enjoyed the music)

  • We hired a string trio from Antares Musicians for our May 1st wedding. Our trio played during our ceremony and reception and they were incredible- our guests are still talking about how beautiful the music was. Our contact was Tammy. From start to finish Tammy was amazing. I picked two songs for our processional and recessional that weren’t in their music library and Tammy worked with me to find the arrangements online so I wouldn’t have to pay the $50 fee for Antares to arrange the piece. At our reception, my mother requested a song and our trio found the song online and played it for her, all within minutes! We are completely satisfied with Antares- not only were they wonderful musicians but were also lovely people. Thank you so much Antares for making our wedding so beautiful! -Emily and Steven 05/01/16

  • Tammy was wonderful to work with! When my daughter requested a song that was not in their repertoire for her processional, they wrote a custom arrangement for a nominal fee. Well worth every penny!

  • Jill Thomassen, and company, were a delight to work with. We chose Antares purely by reputation sight (and sound) unseen! A terrific value. We chose pieces exclusively through their website. Their planning portal helped us in other portions of our planning process. We had an outdoor wedding planned at Pier 5, but at the last minute ran into rain. Antares made an effortless transition to our inside back-up. Produced excellent sound. Guests loved the ambiance they created. Thank you!
