With an excellent range of music for all occasions we are able to take bookings in Hertfordshire, Essex, Bedfordshire, Cambridge, London and beyond.

We have an enormous range of music, from classics to the current day. Videos of some of our repertoire can be found here.

We erect our own gazebo for outdoor bookings and amplification is available.

When performing outside, we use Standbands to secure our music pads to the stands. This ingenious set of bands are produced in coloured or plain wooden bead versions. They are plastic free, made from natural products and supplied in a cotton bag with a wooden peg (so that the bands can be wrapped around this at the end of the booking, to ensure they do not tangle).


These are available for £8.99 (+£1 p&p). Buy Here

The set of 8 is recommended for string quartets, so that each player can have a band at the top and bottom of the music.
