  • I normally forget or don't have time to write reviews, but I made sure I didn't forget this one. Blackstone Valley String Quartet brought tears to my eyes when I walked down the isle. I was very specific of how I wanted my music to go and they made my vision come alive. Sylvia (the owner of Blackstone Valley String Quartet) was  overly willing to speak with me on the phone and answer all my annoying emails quickly. They even recorded one of the songs I requested for an example, which I can tell you many string quartets would not do. They can most likely accommodate any song you want with enough time.  I changed the song that I walked down the isle to a few weeks before my wedding and it was a song they hadn't played before, but they said it could be done. When I heard it I had chills, it was exactly how I always had envisioned walking down the isle. It was like they had been playing that song for years. They also played a different song for parents of the bride/groom, bridesmaids and... Read more

  • These girls are AMAZING! We had the strings trio accompany our wedding mass and it was the absolute best decision we could have made. Their beautiful music elevated the whole mass and still gives me the chills! Everyone was absolutely blown away by their playing. The process couldn't have been easier to book the trio for our day -- Sylvia was extremely responsive, professional, and went above and beyond to learn a couple songs that were special to our ceremony. Thank you for making our day truly magical!! Caitlin and Andrew

  • Working with Blackstone Valley String Quartet was truly a pleasure. Sylvia worked with my husband and myself to ensure our ceremony and cocktail hour music was personal and meaningful. Our guests rave about BVQ's talent and the ambiance they created. Sylvia and her team went above and beyond to make our ceremony and cocktail hour perfect. I would recommend BVQ to anyone who wishes to have a magical wedding day.

  • Our wedding guests were quite surprised when a string quartet started playing songs like Stairway to Heaven. The BVSQ's music raised folks' spirits and added a touch of class at both the church and during the cocktail hours. So much fun. Worth every penny.

  • Blackstone Valley String Quartet did a wonderful job at our wedding. They are professionally adept at their performance, and brought joy to my guests. They were also experienced and knew to pace with the events of the ceremony. Their list of available pieces is extensive, and if you hire them, you will find yourself in very good hands.

    We thoroughly enjoyed playing for your guests J Victor!

  • I can't praise the quarter enough! I hired them because I went to the same school as most of the members, but I was blown away by how talented, professional and attentive they were. I worked with Brittany who answered all (dozens) of my questions no matter how big or small. She was super responsive and always upbeat and friendly, genuinely listening to my thoughts, ideas and concerns. She provided me with resources that helped us choose our ceremony music which we really appreciated. We requested a very specific version of my aisle song that I didn't think was possible to copy...but the quartet did it...to a T...way more perfectly than I ever could've imagined! It's amazing how music helps to share your memories of the big day, and I'm so grateful I chose the BVSQ to be a part of those memories. I'd recommend them to anyone!

    Thank you so much for your amazing review Layne! Again, we were honored to help make your day extra special!

  • We had Brittany playing the violin for our wedding ceremony and she was amazing! We chose both songs from her list as well as others that she learned for us (with short notice, too). The music sounded lovely and we received many compliments. She was very professional and quick to respond via email. I would definitely recommend her to anyone!

    Thank you so much Allison! It was a pleasure to play for your ceremony! :)

  • Do not recommend this band at all. Had my wedding in July, not only that (because we were running late) they allowed a long Period of awkward silence during the CEREMONY, but also completely fucked up our first dance. It was of poor quality, and they faded out the ending so we had to do our dip in basically silence after the song was over just for photography purposes. Obviously as the bride I was not fully focused on ensuring every detail on the day of, as i am an not even available the time before ceremony since I am getting ready, it is more so expected based on vendors’s professionalism and experience, however, reviews from guests regarding them were also poor. And their prices are honestly about the time as others, let’s just say, if you are looking for your wedding/event to be perfect, don’t hire them. We provides document showing full amount was paid that has been certified by wedding wire to make this review. The music was cut off before the danc... Read more

    Cherie, We are very sorry that you were unhappy with the music for your wedding. To the statement that there was an awkward silence at the beginning of the ceremony. The groomsmen were sent in processional a full 20 minutes before bridesmaids were sent in. We were unsure of when bridesmaids would process as no coordinator came to let us know how much longer we should play. We continued playing and trying to check in at the back of the aisle to see when the rest of the processional would follow, hence any awkward silences. As to your first dance, we were not told how long you wanted the song to be played and often it is not the entire track that is played for a first dance. I just want to note for any other potential clients who may be looking at this that this couple has not paid almost 75% of their total bill for our services. Please consider that in your discernment of this particular review. Best, Sylvia DiCrescentis
