Aristo Strings NYC provided me with a one in a lifetime marriage proposal. I originally planned the proposal to be on Bow Bridge in Central Park, but it ended up torrential down pouring that day. Taylor was so accommodating switching the venue to under the Bethesda Terrace. Also, he was also accommodating starting a few minutes early for me. My fiance heard the music and didn't think twice about what it was for. The musicians stopped playing a random classical piece and started playing our song. My fiance was completely surprised and the music was so beautiful. After she said yes, the musicians played a celebration wedding song while we took pictures. I can't thank Taylor enough for making this proposal the greatest day of my life. Aristo Strings NYC were so professional and accommodating, the music was outstanding and I completely recommend them for any of your events. Thank you again for everything and I will keep you in mind for the future! Thank you again from the bottom of my heart.
As our guests entered the cocktail hour of the Wedding Reception they were greeted by the sophisticated sounds of the Aristo Strings Duo – Cellist and Violinist. The Duo perfectly set the tone of the evening and elegantly complimented our venue – The India House at One Hanover Square in Manhattan. Playing a mix of classical and contemporary songs, they provided an ambience to the evening that captivated our guests. They easily could perform the music at a Church or during dinner as well. The Cellist and Violinist Duo of Aristo Strings made our Fairy Tale Wedding a reality.
Taylor and Jessie were timely, professional, fun to talk with, and most importantly - beautiful musicians. They provided the perfect accompaniment to a special family gathering. We highly recommend them and hope to have them again for future events.
Truly made our dad’s birthday party special & elegant
We have engaged Aristo Strings several times for events of our College (Newark College of Engineering at NJIT). The players are very talented musicians, they adapted very well to the audiences and the spaces where they performed for us, and coordinated logistics with us very well -- which is sometimes as important as all the rest. Guests to our events have continually commented on their high quality of playing and their good selection of repertoire. This group is very highly recommended.
Aristo Strings played for our daughter's wedding in Carl Schurz Park in New York City, and I recommend them most highly and without any hesitation. They played beautifully, with sensitivity and elegance, and added much to create a magical mood for the outdoor, unamplified wedding. They were even handed a surprise piece last minute that a friend had composed for the occasion, and made music with it!! It was a beautiful event, and Aristo Strings played a big part in making it so.
Taylor was a pleasure to work with and the group is very much reasonably priced compared to other groups out there. We moved forward with Aristo Strings because of their wonderful references and demeanor over the phone and through email. If we ever need a string quartet again, we will surely give them a call.
I hired a violinist player for my marriage proposal and everything was perfect. Very professional, helpful and pleasant. The player helped me a lot with my proposal and at last her performance was perfect as well. I strongly recommend Aristo Strings.
Including Aristo Strings to my Daughter's baptismal lunch celebration was a last minute decision but certainly an excellent one!. They add a touch of class and elegance to the event. We were all quite pleased and look forward to hiring them for other occasions.
When you hire an artist from Aristo Strings expect them to be on time and to know their music. Expect them to dress the part and to have a matching demeanor.
I hired cellist(Taylor Yasui) to play some contemporary christian tunes and hymns with my band for Sunday service. He played according to the styles with great intonation, legato and phrasing. I'm already booking Aristo Strings for future engagements, can't wait!
I had a last minute request for a funeral service for a violin and cello duet. The response and booking was immediate and the musicians were very professional, on time and played beautifully during the service. Will definitely hire again in the future.
We hired Taylor to perform at a video shoot in NYC. Taylor was amazing! He was punctual, friendly, flexible and just a general pleasure to be around. He was professional on set. The process of hiring him was prompt, simple and professional. I would definitely utilize his service again and next time possibly add additional pieces.
Taylor's performance was great. I'd recommend to have him play at your next event.
These guys are professional musicians that helped making our wedding magic!
They did an awesome job in keeping our guests entertained as the bride arrived 1 hour late (poor me!!!), and they played beautifully during the ceremony in Central Park.
Communication with Taylor was prompt and always easy. Absolutely recommend them!!
A fantastic performance, enriched our service and programs to our community Congregation Bnai Jacob in jersey city! Very professional and inspirational! A fantastic cellist!
Aristo Strings provided a cellist for a recent wedding in Central Park. They were on time and able to accommodate last minute music requests. Everything was great!
We hired Aristo Strings to play table side at our Anniversary dinner. Wow! Superb! Amazing! These superlatives aren't descriptive enough to share the talent of these musicians.
They played a number of preselected pieces along with some outstanding selections of their own.
Thank you Aristo Strings and we look forward to hiring you in the near future for another event.
With Kind Regards,
Drs. Michael and Leslie Duckett
