  • I want to go back to the day of my wedding just so I can listen to Matt Dendy play violin – he's that good. We hired Matt for both our ceremony and cocktail reception at the Ritz-Carlton Sarasota (cocktails at the beach club). Our guests were so impressed with his performance. The best part about Matt is that he's super helpful in the planning process, and boy is he patient because I went back and forth a lot before finalizing the ceremony music. He can play everything from Bach to John Denver to Avicii, so he caters to pretty much anyone's tastes. The day after the wedding I went to the tiki hut at the Ritz Beach Club (next to the cocktail lawn) for lunch and they said, "Oh, we overheard the cocktail hour. Your string quartet was amazing!" They were shocked when I told him the music was all performed by ONE guy – a very talented one at that. Thank you, Matt!

  • We chose Matt for our beach ceremony and cocktail hour and it was absolutely amazing! From the beginning he was super responsive and answered all of our questions quickly and thoroughly. We had the opportunity to meet him ahead of time at a restaurant he was performing at in Sarasota and at that moment knew he was going to be the perfect addition to our special day. He has an extensive list of music selections, all of which are amazing! Our guests couldn't stop talking about how perfectly he played every song and how much his music elevated our ceremony. I would highly highly recommend choosing him for your next event!

  • My husband and I hired Matt for both our rehearsal dinner and wedding ceremony after hearing him play at a local restaurant. I love his style of violin playing and the variety of music he plays! We hired him for the rehearsal, because I was honestly sad that I, as the bride, wouldn't get to hear him play a lot during our ceremony. It was the best decision to hire him for both! Our guests loved him! Matt is truly an extremely nice guy, and we really enjoyed getting to know him throughout the process as we continued to watch him play around town. If you are looking for a violinist, Matt is perfect!

  • Matt added a great touch of class to our outdoor ceremony. Appearance was professional, performance was excellent. He had a wide selection of classical and modern music, plus he added one custom song at no charge, so we were able to pick our favorite contemporary dance song for the pre ceremony time. It was really neat hearing him turn a dance club song into something that perfectly fit the formal occasion. Nervous and distracted as I was, and even though we were outside, his equipment was perfectly audible above a crowd of 100. Even better, we sprung for the video package with our photographer, so Matt's music is now the soundtrack to the movie of our favorite day ever. We paid $535 total for an hour ceremony plus an hour cocktail service before the reception. Well worth it, it will definitely be part of our memory of that day forever.

  • Matt was absolutely amazing and his beautiful music was more then we could have ever imagined! It was so easy working with Matt because he was always so quick to respond and he always stayed on top of the details which made my life so much easier! The day of Matt showed up early with everything ready to go. I did not even see him until I walked down the aisle to the most perfect entrance song. I would highly recommend Matt to anyone looking for some beautiful music for there wedding or any event for that matter!

  • I hired Matt, owner of SRQ Violinist, after seeing him perform at Art Ovation and at a restaurant downtown. Matt was extremely responsive and super easy to deal with. Matt played at our mass at St. Martha's church. He did a fabulous job! His music is so beautiful and numerous guests mentioned how wonderful he was. I would 100% suggest hiring Matt for your wedding or event.

  • My husband and I, along with all of our guests, were very impressed with his talent and professionalism. He was easy to get in contact with and very nice to work with. He went over and above to learn 2 songs for our ceremony, that truly meant a lot to us. Highly recommend!

  • Matt's professionalism coupled with his extensive experience and wide range of music selections quickly made him a top contender to play our cocktail hour at Phillipi Estates. Once chatting with him, his passion for music and to provide us with the best experience made our decision final to have him join in our celebration. We had numerous compliments of how delightful it was to enter the estate hearing his music. We highly recommend Matt for any celebration you would like an amazingly violinist to make many memorable moments!
