  • First, the musicians played superbly--wonderful classical selections performed by a string quartet. We hosted a rehearsal dinner for 45 people at the Berkeley Faculty Club and they played for the first hour outside on the Kerr Deck while we enjoyed cocktails. The musicians moved inside the Great Hall for the next two hours while we enjoyed dinner. In terms of hiring the Bay Area String Quartet, it was very easy to accomplish via email. Jen Mathers, Cellist & Manager, was always prompt and polite when communicating with me. Pricing was competitive with other groups we considered. In short, our evening was made all the more special thanks to the Bay Area Strings! Kevin D. Cramer

  • Bay Area Strings performed at my wedding at San Francisco City Hall Mayor’s Balcony. I arranged for a violinist and cellist. They performed beautifully and helped make the wedding very special. I am very grateful for their performance.

  • Thank you Bay Area Strings for providing such beautiful music during our wedding ceremony. Jen was very responsive over email. For our processional and recessional sounds we picked from their extensive catalog. For my walk down the aisle I specifically asked for arrangement of a Corelli concerto, and they absolutely delivered. Bay Area Strings really brought our ceremony to life and made it very special.

  • Jen and her team were wonderful to work with and they made our wedding ceremony incredibly special. I had a very specific vision for the ceremony and the strings were a huge part of that. I am so thankful that they made my wedding dreams come true. We had them play the standard classical music, but my sister sang the Beyonce version of Ava Maria which required a special arrangement/key. They were so flexible and easy to work with and it came out beautifully - the entire audience (including myself) was balling their eyes out! (In the best way possible). Highly recommend!

  • As the Event Planner for the University of San Francisco Athletics, it is my job to come up with new/different aspects of our Athletic Events. On October 12th we had our Annual Basketball Tip-Off dinner and at $250.00 per person, we wanted something elegant yet fun. Bay Area Strings provided the elegance as they played beautiful music in the background when people arrived. SO easy to work with, I knew I wouldn't have to worry about the music. To top it all off....they even learned our USF Fight Song which premiered for the first time ever played by strings! Thanks again Bay Area Strings, you were definitely a part of our successful evening/event!

  • Bay Area Strings was fantastic to work with for our wedding. We worked with Jen and she was very organized, responsive and helpful. We booked the duet (cello and violin) and the music the day of was perfect. It couldn't have been better in my opinion. Would highly recommend booking Bay Area Strings for your next event!

  • I recently hired Bay Area Strings for my daughter's wedding. As I am not a musician I was a bit nervous- I did not know what to look for or what to ask. Instead, I hired them based on how easy it was to work with Jen on the logistics, etc. The quartet was a HUGE success! They were prompt, professional, talented and easy to work with. Many guests at the wedding commented on how much they enjoyed it. I would definitely hired them again without question.

  • Bay Area Strings was great! Jen was easy to work with, very responsive, and gave great suggestions on the flow of everything. The $75 for a custom arrangement was well worth the money and Jen even sent us a digital audio file of the song to keep! Would highly recommend BAS for your wedding or event.

  • We worked with Bay Area Strings for our April 2016 wedding at the Berkeley City Club in Berkeley, CA, for which they performed as a string quartet for our ceremony and cocktail hour. The group did a great job -- we highly recommend them! The planning process with Bay Area Strings was really easy. We picked this group mainly because their big, diverse repertoire (including both classical and modern pieces), their willingness to learn new music (though we ended up sticking with their repertoire), and how great they sound in the samples on their website. Planning and coordination all happened through email and was straightforward. And the results were great: everything the day-of went smoothly and as planned, and we enjoyed the quartet's performance. We're really happy we picked Bay Area Strings!

  • Bay Area Strings was an absolute pleasure to work with. We had their string trio come to our wedding venue and play our ceremony music for us. From the moment that I was in contact with Jen, I knew that I was in great hands! She was so responsive and made everything so easy and manageable. She had great recommendations for songs that we could use for our ceremony, and she was so accommodating when I presented my own ideas to her. On the day of our wedding, the string trio arrived on time, started setting up, and was playing beautiful quiet music as our guests arrived. During the ceremony, the music was absolutely perfect - so many guests commented on how pretty the music sounded. Then, they hung around and played some more quiet music as guests mingled together after our ceremony. I was so impressed with them (and their price!)...I would highly recommend them to anyone.

  • Bay Area Strings provided live music (string duet – violin and cello) for our wedding in Healdsburg, CA (Sonoma County). Their band manager, Jen Mathers, was extremely helpful throughout the wedding planning process and made herself available to answer all of our questions. They were reasonably priced for live musicians in the Bay Area and had a great selection of songs to pick from. They even accommodated special song requests which really added a great touch to our ceremony and cocktail hour. The customized songs they played for us included “Can’t Help Falling in Love” by Elvis, “Crazy Love” by Van Morrison, “Heaven” by Bryan Adams, “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” by Elton John, and “All You Need is Love” by the Beatles. I would recommend them for weddings and any other events.
