“Steve was so professional, playing music that entertained the entire crowd. I had so many of the guests approach me to compliment the violin music.

He was personable, polite, professional and was great with the guests!” Michelle Mother Of The Bride 2/26/22 George Washington Hotel PopRock Electric Violinist Steven Vance and DJ Matt.

I want to thank you for playing at Alyssa and Tony’s wedding on Saturday. Many of our guests told us how nice to was to hear you play your electric violin. We’ve had one person ask for your  information for their daughter’s wedding in the future. I’m so glad that you helped make their day so much more special. You made everything so easy for Tony and Alyssa to choose their songs and played to perfection!

Beth Mother Of The Bride 10/31/21 Southpointe Golf Club PopRock Electric Violinist Joyce

We wanted to let you know that the musicians, Paula and Tessa, were excellent. We didn’t get a chance to meet them unfortunately, but their music went beyond expectations and we couldn’t have been happier.. Thank you for finding them on such short notice. We will keep you/them in mind for for all future recommendations.” 

Aaron & Rebecca 10/9/21 Chanteclaire Farm Cello and Keyboard Duo

“He was great! His attention to details was essential as we had a flashmob come in during dinner. Everything went off with perfection as we all worked as a team. Anthony’s ability to read what a crowd likes kept everyone dancing. The reception was energetic and fun. Anthony was the perfect fit for the Egan’s. Thank you!”

Elegant Event Solutions for Angelina & Andrew 10/2/21 Omni William Penn Hotel DJ Anthony

“So much more than a DJ! I used Steven Vance for my daughter’s wedding at The Pennsylvanian in Pittsburgh on Sept 4, 2021, he came highly recommended from a co-worker of mine and I would highly recommend him to anyone. He is so talented and is the utmost professional. We had him perform on the violin during the ceremony and cocktail hour which was both elegant and entertaining. He roamed the tables with his violin during dinner, taking requests from the guests at each table…so many in attendance mentioned what a special touch that was. After dinner, Steven got the party started, keeping so many dancing all night long and keeping to the brides schedule of events all night long! When I put in a last minute request from mom to the bride, he just smiled and added it to the playlist before the finale song…so professional and just an all around great pick!”

Debra Mother Of The Bride 9/4/21 The Pennsylvanian Electric Violin & DJ Package

Amber & Zach 5/15/21 Sunset Room Electric Violinist & DJ Steven Vance

“I just wanted to write a quick note to thank you so much for being a part of our Big Day. Our family and friends only had great things to say about you and your music. My mom said you were amazing and she could tell you really enjoyed the love and fun all night. Clark and I can’t wait to see more from the videographer since we missed the cocktail hour – but we know our guests loved you and the performance! John was incredible, too. But, I have to say, my favorite part of the day was walking down the aisle to Marry You – that song will forever hold a special place in my heart. Thank you again!!!”
Maureen and Clark 5/8/21 Hyeholde PopRock Electric Violin, Solo Pianist John Garrick and DJ Steven Vance Package

“Amazing, entertaining, whimsical, beautiful, fun. We can use many words to describe Steve and his team and these are the first to come to mind. Steve stuck with us through our many changes during COVID and we’re so happy he did because his work is incredible. We have the electric violin during cocktail hour and our guests couldn’t have been happier and more pleased with her work! We were lucky enough to have Steve DJ our wedding and our guests didn’t stop dancing the whole night!!! We had also rented a photobooth through Steve and our guests loved that added piece and were so happy to grab some extra photos. We recommend Steve 10/10!!”
