Felix is one of a kind and absolutely set the tone for my sisters wedding/blessing ceremony. My dad who is in a nursing home and a 86 day survivor of COvid 19, literally fought to live just to be able to walk my sister down the aisle. Felix made the day so magical and added to such a wonderful blessing. He accommodated all of our requests and was more than happy to keep playing although the ceremony ended but played while my younger sister sang along to all his tunes. I was so glad that I found him last minute and enjoyed his personality and work ethic. We have plans to hire him again just waiting for the world to open back and hopefully Felix will be open to travel to Virginia.
Response from Felix Violin:
Thank you so much for your kind words! I was honored to add something to such an important day for your family, especially in such tough circumstances. You all were absolutely lovely and I’d be more than happy to travel anywhere for you in the future once the world becomes safer again.
All the best to you and yours,
Felix is a wonderful, talented consummate professional violinist. Not only is he a prodigious violinist and arranger, but was so detail oriented, communicative, accommodating and friendly. I hired Felix to assemble a string quartet and play “Maybe I’m Amazed” for my surprise marriage proposal to my girlfriend on a street corner in the South End of Boston. He came up with a custom penned quartet arrangement of the classic, sent me a MIDI demo, which was already incredible, and even tweaked it to my taste with some of my comments. He asked me what I wanted them to wear, provided references, and even helped coordinate with a videographer and photographer. They sounded INCREDIBLE. Better than any event string quartet or recording I’ve ever heard. Needless to say, the proposal was magical thanks to Felix... and she said yes.
Felix, was amazing! I told him that we were having a traditional west African wedding and would like to hear Afrobeat. He said no problem, send over the songs I wanted to hear. I sent them over and he learned how to play them. I'm so thankful he did this because it brought the event to a higher level. Everyone asked about him and love the way he played. Thank you SO much for this!
Response from Felix Violin:
Thanks Marvel! I hope the last few weeks have been lovely and I really enjoyed playing both days; wonderful to try my hand at some different styles. All the best!
Felix was amazing my guests haven’t stopped talking about how talented and had the best time because of him.
Wish I had more options of stars! I happen to meet Felix for one of my projects of fusion music with Tabla (an Indian percussion instrument). the moment I met him, I immediately connected as a musician with him and I knew it will bring a wonderful outcome.
He even helped me gather other musicians and composed a tune. He is a very hardworking guy and very easy to work with. His calm composer brings the best out of him. we recorded in the recording studio and it came out wonderful. I think people like Felix bring soul to the music when they play live. it's mesmerizing to see him play his violin.
Felix is absolutely amazing - strongly recommend. Professional, talented, and polished! He made our wedding day perfect!!
He was on time , he played beautifully & stayed after to play some more music because we were taking photos . Very polite & understanding.
Felix was FANTASTIC! He was nimble in moving locations with the weather, didn't miss a beat and our guests loved him. I would recommend working with him in a heartbeat and hope to have a future party need to work with him again!

We hired Felix for a virtual fundraiser. At all times he was very responsible, he answered my messages quickly and on the day of the event his presentation was one of the most spectacular. Everyone was delighted! Fully recommended for your event.
I hired Felix to play a selection of songs for me and my wife’s anniversary, on the beach where we were married a year ago. Felix did a fantastic job! He was very communicative from the beginning, answering all my questions and figuring out a backup rain plan with me and sending me samples of his work. He was on time for the surprise and did a great job performing the songs I requested. It was a beautiful, romantic performance we will never forget.
Felix played violin to accompany our outdoor wedding ceremony and it set the perfect ambiance for the event. He was so helpful and accommodating leading up to the event, including learning new Hindi songs and coordinating with our singer to accompany her. He went above and beyond and we are so grateful. The guests can’t stop talking about how great the music was!
Felix was great, not only was he patient with me he was also full of great ideas he was the best wing man ever a pros pro!
Felix was great from the beginning. He was open to anything we wanted to do and followed through amazingly on our wedding day. He made sure to congratulate us multiple times after and was 100% worth hiring! Thanks again Felix!
Felix is not just an incredibly talented artist, but he is also a great guy. From the initial call to the detail oriented planning , Felix was amazing! He learned a special song In ONE DAY for our surprise proposal . I HIGHLY recommend Felix for any event!
Felix tied our whole launch party together to create a smashing event. He took song requests and played beautiful, mellow music by our fireplace. He also was flexible, gracious, polite, and accommodating towards the particular setup needs we had. He came the day before to see the space to figure out what would work best. *Highly* recommend. Thank you, Felix!
Felix played at our wedding ceremony and it was one of the highlights of our wedding. Nearly every guest commented on how amazing Felix sounded and how unique it was to have such an incredible violinist. Felix helped us create a custom playlist and even learned a brand new song for my husband and I so I could walk down the aisle to a Lord of the Rings song. We loved Felix and highly recommend him to everyone!
I hired Felix to play at my daughters Celebration of Life service. He created a sound track based on a special playlist I provided and accompanied the songs while a slideshow of my daughter ran. He matched his sound perfectly to the occasion It was absolutely beautiful and a wonderful tribute to my precious daughter. I highly recommend Felix. He went above and beyond and made a very difficult day a little less so. Thank you Felix !
The quarter that played was amazing! They showed up on time and were able to play the music that was asked and did an amazing job. I would hire them again!
Fantastic job by a very talented violinist. He played everything, from 80s to hip hop to top 40, with ease and precision. Thanks for doing such a great job!
Felix was very professional and very quick to learn the songs. He did an amazing job, is very talented and an overall lovely person. Highly recommend.
Would rebook Felix in a second. They were professional and such great performers - made our engagement proposal beyond special!
Felix and Jordan played at an event that I hosted in Scottsdale and everyone was blown away! They really listened to our needs and went above and beyond to make us happy. I would HIGHLY recommend them for any event!
Felix played for our grandparent's day brunch. He provided lovely background music for our residents and family to enjoy while eating their meal. He was polite, professional and flexible with his schedule.
