Was pleased with the outcome, however, I wish she would've worked the room a little more.
This was a beautiful performer, all the expectations were met. I highly recommend her.
Timerie was a fantastic performer, she not only provided our engagement party with beautiful music but she added to the atmosphere making it an unforgettable moment for us. We would highly recommend her for any wedding or elegant celebration as she added a classic touch. She was professional and pleasant to work with, catering to all of our requests. All of our guests enjoyed listening to her as she was a highlight in our event. When we originally had changed our date she sent us a hand written letter of encouragement and understand which filled our hearts from her kindness and we were certain to use her at our event and for any future events on long island we host knowing she is a sincere person who cares about people and her work. We would give Timerie 10 stars if we could.
Response from The Strolling Strad:

What to Expect
If I am playing violin for your wedding ceremony, you'll hear my music as the guests arrive, letting them know a wonderfully romantic event is taking place. My music will bring smiles and tears of joy to you and your guests as you walk down the aisle and back up again as husband and wife!
If I'm strolling at your event, guests would notice the sweet sound of violin music coming from the corner of the room. They might recognize the song I'm playing along with and start to hum along. As I stroll around the room their eyes will meet mine and we'll smile. I'll perform their requested song right in front of them. Antsy children will recognize their favorite Disney song and sing along. Babies will gurgle- I'll let them pluck the violin strings. A feeling of relaxed calm and festive happiness will fill the space.
I am an Elementary School Orchestra teacher during the school year. I teach children the joy of playing a song they know from the radio. Then I share that joy with wedding-goers!
Additional Booking Notes
I'll only need one electrical outlet for my electric violin and amp.
