Roman and Empyreal Strings were such a pleasure to work with. From meeting with us initially to helping us to choose our songs and a schedule for the ceremony and reception, no detail was missed. Our guests are still raving about how fantastic the music was and the violin show... Read More was a favorite of the night. Roman helped us each step of the way and helped us with recommendations from his experience. The 12 piece band at reception, the saxophonist at cocktail hour, and the string quartet greeting guests upon arrival and at the ceremony, exceeded our already high expectations. They were very responsive and were one of the vendors that we didn't have to worry about. We highly recommend Empyreal Strings! Thank you Roman and Empyreal Strings!

After choosing our wonderful wedding venue, Greenville Country Club in Delaware, hiring Roman Teplinsky and Empyreal Strings for music and entertainment was the best decision we made for our wedding. Roman made our party. He is a talented musician, and the acoustic performance... Read More of the string quartet for the ceremony and cocktail hour was immaculate. Roman is professional and experienced, and had great ideas. He made himself available to visit the venue - 2.5 hours outside of NYC to familiarize himself with it months in advance. Roman helped us craft our production schedule and tailored it to the venue, changing where the prelude would take place to split up the musicians so that 2 would be available to greet guests as they were served champagne when they came in. He is creative and eccentric, and has a strong personality - you can tell he is so passionate about his work. He will make recommendations but he will listen to what you want. We had a mix of Russian and English-speaking guests and were looking for an English-speaking MC/ Roman suggested Chris, who had a fantastic voice and presence, and played 2 saxophones - SO SO fun! He got right in there and danced with us. There was another DJ who spun the tunes in the back. Roman asked that we review the playlist, and what was played wasn't always what we picked, but it was great and the dance floor was full all night. But the real reason everyone danced was the "Extravaganza" pop music show that Roman and the string quartet puts on for the party with electric violins!!! The musicians come out dressed to the nines in leather pants and play rock, Jewish music... Led Zeppelin was a total hit!!! Both families LOVED it and couldn't get enough! It was perfect and exactly what we were looking for - a mix of live music, DJ, and entertainment that pleased the American and Russian crowds. My parents danced their hearts out like crazy. My husband's uncles couldn't get enough. We had a blast. When we saw my husband's family shortly after the wedding it was all they wanted to talk about! One of the uncles truly loves live music and he kept saying he had never seen anything like this before -- it was Broadway show quality. And indeed it was. Thanks so much Empyreal Strings!!

As all the dust settles and we try to resume our post-honeymoon lives, finally I get a chance to write a review on our amazing band for our Ohkea Castle wedding on August 21st. My husband and I could not be happier with our decision to hire Roman and his band for the most... Read More important of of our lives. Not only did he deliver above and beyond what was expected of him, but he lend a helping hand for us with any questions/concerns throughout the entire planning process. Even if it wasn't in his speciality, Roman was able to sympathize and understand us to guide us in the right direction. He was unlike any other bands we interviewed. He does not have a "textbook" formula for running a wedding. He is a beyond professional business man who was able to capture both my husband and my personalities with each symphony that was played the night of our wedding. From the personalized violin solos when our parents accompanied us down the aisle, to his spectacular violin show during the reception- we felt that it was all done specifically and completely for us. Empyreal Strings is not for someone who lacks class, elegance and sophistication. If you are looking for a mediocre band, they are not for you. If you are looking to WOW your guests with the highest of standards that will leave their jaws on the floor, then you've found your entertainment. Empyreal Strings are impressive, professional, and energetic. Our guests still can't forget the feeling of love, happiness and FUN that filled the ballroom that night. It is unlike me to rant and rave about anything unless it is truly superb. Trust me when I say, you will not regret Empyreal Strings for your choice of entertainment.

The best decision ever! Unforgettable!! Phenomenal!!! If you want your guests to have a great time and enjoy every second of your entire event, such as a wedding in our case, from guests arrival to ceremony, reception and special entertainment, then look no further than Empyreal... Read More Strings orchestra. One word to describe the leader of this amazing band, is perfectionist! From the first time we spoke over the phone, we were impressed with Roman and his professionalism. We were not the easiest clients to work with. That where is Roman's tremendous knowledge of classical, jazz, pop, blues, dance, big band and international music came to the rescue. He was guiding us every step through the wedding day, planning and ensuring we made appropriate decision on the music selection and timing. We did not want to have the same "here comes the bride" ceremony music. Roman proposed to have music from Italian Andrea Bochelli "Time To Say Goodbye" but the lyrics in Hebrew "Boi Kala". The result was absolutely most beautiful song!!! You don't have to be in opera to get emotional with this song! It was large and diverse, ethnically and age wise group of guests. However, during the reception guests were dancing none stop. Roman has an incredible ability to sense the mood of the crowd and always managed to play an appropriate selection of the music, one song at the time. Also, being a perfectionist, the sound and the lights were perfect, never overwhelming and just right. The entertainment part of the wedding, was string quartet pop show, performed by virtuoso professional violin players. For those 20 minutes of explosive performance, guests completely forgot about of the tasty entrees and rushed to the dance floor at the culmination of the show "Kashmir" by Led Zeppelin and performed by this quartet. It's was out of this world! Once again, it was the best decision we ever made. Roman and his band absolutely, without a doubt, are worth it!!!

Our guests were blown away by the... Read More QUALITY of the music/sound. The dance floor did not lie that night because they all danced and didn't have much time to focus on the food. Prior to the amazing night we had, our family contacted Roman after we heard his band play at a family friends wedding. He was very professional and caring. We met with him a few times and spoke some more over the phone as a team to get on par about how he operates and insight on how to have a successful and fun night. His main concern was that we would be overly satisfied with our special night and his band would handle the rest. What many entertainment companies forget is that, they are working as a unit with the wedding party and not just doing what they are paid to do and have the Bride/Groom upset. Empyreal Strings is the highest bar, you are not just having music at a wedding or special occasion.. You are trying to make memories, moments that will leave a lasting impression on your guests and have them talking about your event with their friends and colleagues. Most important you are sealing a bond with you and your S.O. for eternity and having the right entertainers to play the right music and run the show for you is not just spine tingling-- their frequency touches the soul of yours and the guests. One honest advice I can give as a stranger to whoever is reading this comment before reaching out to Roman Teplinksy is: Be up front with him and he will to you. Work with him as he will to you.. Trust his talent and experience to do the rest.. I guarantee you will hear about you wedding party for along time to come.. I have been to many weddings and heard lots of entertainment bands and DJ's.. We easily chose EMPYREAL STRINGS!!!!!
