RECENT RAVES

"I used Steven Vance Strolling Violins for my ceremony and reception at the Le Mont. Steve played the violin during the ceremony and cocktail hour and then switched over to DJ during the reception. 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!"

"Steven Vance was an awesome element in our celebration. Not only did our guests rave about him but he moved the party along by prompting the toast, the cake, etc. which allowed me to simply enjoy, worry free. He was a crucial part in planning our last minute wedding and even changed his plans for the day so that he could be there. We will call him again for future celebrations!..."

"We wanted to say thank you so very much for the magnificent performances you provided at our wedding this past Saturday. We have had so many compliments from our friends and family regarding your work. Our guests were blown away at the level of quality in the quartet performances, everyone loved your solo violin during dinner, and it was a blast dancing to your DJ mix. We enjoyed all of it as well!! We cannot thank you enough- it exceeded all expectations and was absolutely perfect!

Steven Vance String Quartet, Electric Violin & DJ Package

I hired Steven to play violin (along with a pianist) during the ceremony & cocktails, strolling violin during dinner, and DJ/MC for the reception. Can't say enough good things about our experience. The music was absolutely amazing, and Steven is a great speaker/MC. We had lots of guests in from out of town, and one of them even mentioned that he would hire Steven to fly to his home state for a party- that's how impressive he was!! I don't think the dance floor was empty all night- GREAT job!!!"
