RECENT RAVES

 

“Tony and I want to thank you so much for managing the festivities at Katie and Mike’s Wedding Reception. You are a talented musician/entertainer and you worked so hard from the moment you arrived until the end of the Reception. I felt so confident with you as the “Master Of Ceremonies” that I didn’t have to worry about a thing. Your professionalism and passion for entertaining is evident in your work”

Mary Lou and Tony  Parents of the Bride  7/11/15  Nevillewood Golf Club                                                  Steven Vance Pop/Rock Violin & DJ Package

“Steve is wonderful! Easy to work with and when you have questions, gets back to you promptly. We had Steve play violin at cocktail hour. All of our guests loved him. His mix of music was great! Classic and modern. Steve kept the wedding moving through introductions and the music he played when it was time to dance. His selection of music kept all of the guests dancing. He is extremely professional and we can't wait to book him again for a future event.”

"Mameaw and I would like to thank you again for doing such a wonderful job at our June 19th wedding. The ceremony, dinner and reception music was all perfect, and you did a great job of gauging the crowd throughout the evening. I was also glad that you were able to stay past mid-night and put on a good show for a crowd that wanted to dance through the night. Bravo"                    Rob & Mameaw  6/19/15  Lemont

Steven Vance Violin & DJ Package

“Steven Vance Violin provided a keystring duo for our ceremony music. The musicians were talented and did a wonderful job translating modern pop songs into classically-played pieces suited for our ceremony (including Journey's Don't Stop Believing as our exit hymn!) The duo was the perfect size and sound for our very small space, and the prelude music didn't drown out the conversation of our 30 guests as they assembled before the ceremony. Steven himself was responsive to all of my emails and was very easy to select songs with, and he always let me know what song selections his musicians were most comfortable playing. I recommend Steven Vance for anyone looking for traditional musicians who can put a fun twist on popular songs for a ceremony-- they were a pleasure to have at our wedding.”

."I just wanted to say working with the people at Steven Vance was absolutely incredible. They made this such an easy and fun experience for us I would recommend them to anyone looking for a String Quartet. My primary contact was Jamie Bale and she was absolutely amazing. She was very easy to work with, got back to me very promptly and made sure my ceremony went exactly how I imagined. My Bridesmaids walked down to "I'll Be" and when it started playing tears swelled in my eyes. My Mom and I walked down to Canon in D and we were both smiling and shaking with joy by the time I got to my groom. Thank you all soo soo much for making my wedding ceremony everything I could have ever asked for."

“Steve's musicians (Violin, Cello, Flute) were fantastic, they played beautifully and we had many compliments from guests who are musicians themselves. Steve himself was a pleasure to work with and went above and beyond to make everything work the way we asked. We had an outdoor venue and he made sure that everyone could be heard on the mics, many people commented on how well they could hear the ceremony. For everything we had, the package was very reasonable and once the day was over, I felt that the value was absolutely exceptional.”

He was professional, talented, thorough, and he definitely knows his stuff. I had several people come up to me during the wedding and say that they really enjoyed him. I could not agree more! He was very easy to reach during the planning process and everything went off without a hitch. I highly, highly recommend his business!"
