Lee String made our event perfect. Wonderful to work with and very professional. Extremely talented and just made our celebration a success. Thank you Ms Lee
I cannot begin to express my gratitude for Lee Strings making our wedding ceremony beautiful & memorable. As someone who grew up playing violin, I know how much work & dedication it takes to play as flawlessly as Lee Strings did at our wedding (however, I am nowhere near the violinist that Yera Lee is - she is extraordinary). Lee Strings are true professionals & I would recommend them to anyone.
I hired Lee string for my wedding on Feb. 7 and it was wonderful. Very good communication with her and good musical selections. I recommend her for the wedding music.
Had some communication issues in the beginning, but that's not why I'm giving the mediocre review. I paid for one hour of service, and the second player arrived at 6:15 even though I had asked for music to be played during seating. I actually had guests remark on the musicians being late, which is not something a bride wants to hear. There was also a noticeable mistake made during the bridal party entrance. They seemed a little rushed and unorganized, maybe due to the late arrival.
Lee String was by far the best vendor in our wedding. They made our ceremony perfect and they were worth every penny spent and probably more. They were easy to book through gig salad, and very easy to work with and communicate. They showed up on time, were beautifully and professionally dressed, and even the reps from the ceremony site commented that we had THE BEST ceremony they had even seen largely due to the beautiful music from Lee String. A+
We hired Lee Strings for our wedding in September 2013 for our ceremony, they were amazing! They dressed professionally, they played beautifully. Our ceremony that we hired them for was outside, we had about 150 people and without microphones, Lee Strings played with full sound, not too loud, not too soft, just perfect, they play with full sound, together, they are exactly what professional musicians are and how professional musicians are supposed to sound. To add to all of this, I requested Thousand Years by Christina Perri to be played when I walked down the aisle and I requested for the band to play the beginning while the bridal party walked down and then to go into the chorus when I started to walk down the aisle, so the guests could hear enough of the song to recognize it because it is such a beautiful song and matches perfectly with our wedding and they did it and it was perfect, the timing was perfect and I was completely happy with them, would definitely hire them again if we ever need to hire musicians again. They do require a cover for them because their instruments are woodwind and can damage with all kinds of weather but we had no problem accommodating with that, we made a canopy for them and we even had shade where we were. These guys really know music and they are definitely worth the money!
We had an event on Saturday, October 12th for our charity an Lee String performed at the Peterloon Estate in Indian Hill. We have had so many great comments about Lee String. They did a great job and we would definitely have them for another event
Great job! :-)
I couldn't have been more pleased with Lee Strings. They were very cooperative and easy to work with. Their music was beautiful and many people at the wedding commented on how much they enjoyed their music. I will certainly use them again if the need arises.
