I hired Amanda to play acoustic violin for my wedding ceremony. We communicated entirely through e-mails until the day of, which is something I've never done before when hiring someone for something, but it was really easy and she made me feel comfortable with the process. She has a wide array of songs available and asked me which style of music we preferred. She was able to play the songs I requested as well. She played while our guests were arriving and as they left, and what I heard from them was that the playing was beautiful and amazing! The small bits I heard while walking the aisle were perfect and simple as we wanted it. I would definitely recommend Amanda to play violin for any event.
Amanda provided beautiful music for our ceremony. She was very pleasant to work with and I'd highly recommend her to anyone.
Amanda played perfectly for our wedding. She was very accomadating working with the organist at our church and wonderfully played out choice of music selections.
Nice performance..She played all our requested songs..
I found Amanda a few weeks back as I was lookign for a violinist for a special proposal I planned for my girlfriend. amanda was very responsive and played all the songs I requested. She was very flexible, as I requested her an extra hour of her time from my original request. She also played at a very remotes spot for us in front of tiki torches I set up at night with no complaint. It was a mix of classics and pop songs and each song was extremely well done. If you have any ideas for a surprise, want a personal concert or have a bigger celebration, Amanda is your lady!
Amanda performed two specifically requested songs for my city hall ceremony. She showed up well within time and was very professional. She learned the two songs I was hoping for, and played them beautifully. It was a surprise for the groom, so there were quite a few logistics about back doors to enter etc, and she was super flexible and agreeable. I would absolutely book Amanda again in the future. :)
Amanda was flexible and came prepared.
We hired Amanda as a violinist for a surprise proposal. This wonderful young lady hiked to the top of Holt Hill at the Ward Reservation, in the pouring rain, to play A Thousand Years. She was so friendly, very classy & professional and really made the proposal special. She even had some great suggestions as to when to start playing to help make things as romantic as possible.
Her fee was also extremely reasonable; She is quite amazing and we highly recommend her!
Price Range: $150 and up
Gig Length: 30 - 240 minutes

My only requirement is some sort of cover during events that take place in inclement weather. I am happy to play events both outside and inside, but due to the nature of my instrument I need some sort of shelter from the rain if it is an outside event.
