The Sonata Strings played for our daughter’s wedding ceremony and they were wonderful. She chose contemporary music (Make You Feel My Love and Can’t Help Falling in Love) and both instrumentals sounded great. Easy to walk down the aisle to and also very recognizable. Plus very emotional, of course. They played as people arrived, during the processional and recessional – everything was beautiful.
The Orchestra played for our reception and the band was outstanding. Every song had people on the dance floor and the energy was super high. Especially fun is the surprise (for the guests) when the horn players come out onto the dance floor amid the guests. Someone started a long conga line and it was a riot. Our wedding was a Jewish one and so the traditional circle dance, the Hora, is really important. The Orchestra nailed it and our dancing went on for a long and celebratory time. They knew exactly how to get everyone moving and dancing, and were great about anticipating the bride and groom (and scary but true, the parents) being lifted in chairs while everyone circled around. When they took breaks they had great music ready to go so there was never a quiet moment on the floor (except for slower songs requested by the bride and groom). Our guests commented all night about the “great band” and especially our out-of -town guests were thrilled to learn it was a local band. I would recommend The Orchestra without any reservation!
