Cobalt Strings was fantastic from start to finish! My (then) fiancé and I were looking a long time for a String trio or quartet that was skilled, played modern music, and would be willing to play a few “geeky” songs from tv shows/video games we...
like: quite a tall ask. Cobalt strings was able to deliver all these things and more. Their music selection was great and allowed us to have a lot of songs we love be played for the wedding. They were also really prompt and friendly with their responses as well as adaptive to our requests. We really appreciated their feedback when it came to music choices and realistic when adapting potential songs into string versions of them. We ended up having “Merry Go Round of Life” from Howl’s Moving Castle, “Ashes” from God of War, and “Reigns of Castamere” from GOT (as an inside joke for guests who know) be the custom songs they adapted. During the wedding, they were able to play all of the music perfectly during the ceremony and adapt to the timing of each walk. We also got them to play during cocktail hour.
We got so many compliments from our guests about Cobalt Strings and their performances! Both older guests and younger enjoyed the music selection. Even guests with a musical background thought they did an excellent job! Funnily enough, the older guests that were familiar with classical music were wondering what some of the modern, fandom songs were as they loved them so much and were surprised to find that they were adaptations of modern songs!
We would 100% recommend Cobalt Strings! They are great for couples that want a mix of older and newer songs, as well as fans of Bridgerton-like modern string adaptations of songs and those wanting custom songs. They played fantastically, and were definitely a highlight of the wedding!
