String Quartet, Electric Violin & DJ package

“We had an amazing experience with Steven Vance! During our ceremony, members of Steve’s very talented team played as a string quartet and it was absolutely perfect. Nate Goodrich was our MC, DJ, and electric violin player during cocktail hour as well – talk about impressive! I only wish that my husband and I were present during cocktail to hear the violin! Nate was an absolute pleasure to work with and was so professional and accommodating during the whole process. He really worked with us to customize the perfect mix of songs to play during the reception that kept our guests dancing all night long! He had wonderful ideas and truly made our night one to remember! Highly recommend Steven Vance Entertainment!” Haley & Adam 9/7/19 Edgeworth Club

“Steven Vance is top notch! I’d recommend his DJ/violin services to anyone! He accommodated all of our requests for violin tunes and the dance floor was hopping all night! He perfectly spaced our first dance and dances with our families. We received so many compliments about the music selection. He did a perfect job!

CAMA String Duo

“Daniele and I would like to tell you how great it was having Charles and Mary for our wedding. They were wonderful!  The ceremony would not have been the same without them.  The music sounded great!  Daniele really wanted to have the song “Dindi” performed during the ceremony, so Charles created the arrangement so that it would sound great with vocals!   All of the pieces that they played sounded beautiful!  They were very helpful and easy to work with.”

String Trio, Electric Violin, Solo Piano (with Grand Piano Shell) & DJ Package

Steven was very flexible with us from the beginning. That I know of, he’s the only one who will play instruments for the ceremony and cocktail hour but DJ for the dance portion. Steven also provided MC services. We did a string trio for the ceremony which was gorgeous and a strolling violin for the cocktail hour. Then we had a pianist who was very accommodating and played extremely well for dinner. The pianist, John Garrick, played a piece from Ocarina of Time in dedication for my aunt which was very sweet and special to me. We also had a ton of different ideas and Steven was happy to draft up many scenarios for us. I 100% recommend. Steven is professional and his services are a great value.”

Strings Quartet & DJ Anthony

“When I initially contacted Steven, all I knew was that I wanted strings for the ceremony and a DJ for the remainder of the evening. Everyone with Steven was great to work with and helped me narrow down exactly what I wanted! We ended up with Sapphire Strings Quartet and they were incredible. Jami was very professional and easy to work with, and their music was breathtakingly beautiful. For our DJ, we had Anthony. He was great throughout! We had an outside ceremony so he came early to set up a sound system for us and stayed to make sure everything worked. After the ceremony, he was attentive to our guests’ requests and kept the evening flowing smoothly.”
Kathleen & Dudley, 5/18/19, Pittsburgh Botanic Garden

“Amazing! I hired Steven for my wedding in February and the music was perfect. I had a string trio play for the ceremony they played every piece I requested and my guests loved them. Music for the cocktail hour was light and fun. I also had a strolling violin for dinner, lovely and romantic and he took requests. Then Steven was my dj and the music was perfect. Perfect all around!!! I would recommend him to all brides and grooms!!!!!!”

AAA String Trio

”I hired a trio for my ceremony at Heinz Chapel. They were absolutely amazing! With minimal notice they were able to play all of my selections for my ceremony flawlessly Definitely worth the extra $$ if you do not like the traditional organ playing.”

Violinist & DJ Nate Goodrich

“Nate Goodrich was our DJ and Violinist. He was extremely helpful before the wedding by helping us with song suggestions and gave examples of what he has done for similar weddings. He even learned a song on the violin specifically for our wedding “On Top of the World” by Imagine Dragons with a back track. The day of the wedding and after the wedding, our guests raved about how great Nate was as a violinist and DJ. He really helped our wedding become a fun celebration. We highly recommend him for any future weddings.

The beauty of the strings made the ceremony even more emotional and special. There were multiple moments in which the beautiful music brought even more tears to my eyes.

Violinist Ron & DJ Mike

“I just wanted to pop you an email real quick and let you know that yesterday was pure magic and a big part of that was thanks to our DJ Mike Greca and our violinist Ron. Every one raved about both of them. Ron did a fabulous job with the selection for our ceremony and the guests loved what he played during cocktail hour. Mike played the most fantastic selection and had people on the floor dancing all night. I’m truly pleased and just wanted to pass it along.”

Faiella Mandolin and Guitar Duo and Violinist and DJ Nate Goodrich

“We highly recommend Steven Vance for anyone’s wedding! We wanted a mixture of live music and a DJ. Nate Goodrich played the violin during our ceremony and DJ during cocktail hour and the reception. We also had the mandolin and acoustic guitar duo during dinner. Our guests loved being able to request songs and having the musicians play personally in front of their table! We ended up extending the DJ going for an extra half hour because our guests were having so much fun! The packages were very reasonably priced, since we had both live and DJ music.”  
Sarah & David, 9/15/18, Wyndham Grand Hotel Downtown

“Absolutely wonderful. Everything went smoothly. The musicians were excellent and professional. It was everything I hoped it would be and more! Joyce was so nice and helpful.”
