Our string quartet band has performed at many venues in the Sunshine Coast. As a result, our string quartet brings forth a wealth of experience and expertise, enabling us to adeptly navigate the nuances of diverse acoustical settings, thus elevating the overall musical encounter. 

Each venue presents its own distinct acoustic intricacies and challenges. However, capitalising on our extensive years of experience, our string quartet is able to adapt seamlessly to varying environments. We possess a profound understanding of how the acoustics of a space can significantly influence the timbre produced by our instruments, and as such, we fastidiously tailor our playing techniques to ensure the optimum projection of sound and harmonic equilibrium.

We understand the weight of this responsibility and are committed to providing a musical tribute that serves as a beautiful reflection of the life and legacy of your loved one.


We perform on acoustic instruments, which means we don’t require access to any power. 

This makes our set up time efficient and keeps our performance area simple and safe.


For more intimate gatherings with fewer than 80 attendees or events where guests will be engaged in quieter conversations, we recommend opting for an acoustic performance. This is particularly well-suited for occasions such as wedding ceremonies, intimate receptions, funerals, and wakes.

In the case of larger events where you still prefer an acoustic performance, we recommend booking our string quartet for the initial 60-90 minutes of your event. During this time frame, our string quartet will make the most substantial impact, and your guests are more likely to fully appreciate their performance. Typically, as the event progresses beyond this period, guests tend to become more engaged in socializing, leading to louder conversations, and the presence of the string quartet may become less conspicuous. At this point, we suggest transitioning to playing recorded music through speakers after the string quartet concludes their performance.


For large receptions and corporate events hosting more than 80 attendees, expansive outdoor settings, or crowded spaces, we suggest amplifying our string quartet to achieve the best sound quality. 

If your venue provides sound equipment to amplify the string quartet, please arrange for the sound engineer to place one microphone on a stand in front of each musician. To guarantee optimal audio, please hire our string quartet for an extra 30 minutes prior to their performance time for a soundcheck.


We are happy to perform outdoors; however, our highly valuable instruments require protection from direct sunlight, rain, and wind.

Suitable outdoor settings include verandas, balconies, and decks with overhead cover, marquees, large shade umbrellas, or spacious trees providing ample shade without falling foliage risks.

Performing on or near sand is not feasible due to potential instrument damage.

In the event of inclement weather, please ensure an indoor backup performance area is available.


We require minimal assistance from our clients. 

Here are our performance requirements.


When the time comes to secure your booking, we’ve streamlined the process to make it simple and convenient for you. Our online booking form is designed to be user-friendly and efficient. 

We understand that budget considerations play an important role in decision-making. That’s why we offer flexible options to accommodate varying budgets. In addition to our esteemed Sunshine Coast string quartet, we provide the choice of a string trio, string duo, or even a solo performer. This allows you to select the ensemble size that aligns with your preferences and budget, while still enjoying the enchanting sounds of our live musicians.

For complete transparency, we have all our prices listed on our website. We believe in providing upfront and clear pricing details so that you can plan and budget accordingly, ensuring there are no surprises along the way.

Thank you for taking the time to explore our services. Your interest is genuinely appreciated. We eagerly anticipate the opportunity to contribute to your unforgettable celebration. With our exceptional musicianship, meticulous attention to detail, and unwavering dedication to creating magical moments, we are fully committed to making your event truly remarkable and memorable.
