String Strio, Strolling Violin & DJ Steven Vance

“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!!!!!!”

Steven Vance Electric Violin, Strolling Violin and DJ Package

“Steven did such a wonderful job! We had him for the ceremony and reception! We had the strolling violin at dinner and everyone loved it. We also are still getting compliments on what a great job he did after a month later. He kept the party going! It was all for a great price too!”

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.

Keystring Violin & Piano Duo/PopRock Electric Violinist & DJ Steven Vance

“I will get around to writing a review soon. Been a crazy week after the wedding. I just wanted to thank you for everything! You are a true wedding professional in every way. You kept us on task even with a crazy bridal party of 22! You kept the dance floor packed! You lived up and beyond your duties as a wedding DJ! Everything every person ever said about you is beyond true and we could’ve never ever asked for a better more amazing musician and DJ! We have received so many compliments on your professionalism!  Thank you for all of your hard work!!!

Pittsburgh String Quartet

“The Pittsburgh Ensemble with Steven Vance was incredibly talented! We had a string quartet at our catholic wedding ceremony. 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. We received such wonderful feedback from guests. We could not have been happier- beyond impressed and pleased!”

String Trio Violinist & DJ Nate

“Steve and company were great. Joyce and the rest of the trio even did a custom arrangement for our ceremony for a nominal fee. The ceremony and cocktail hour were just perfection. They’re real pros. Definitely recommended.”

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.”

String Duo and PopRock Electric Violinist Joyce W

“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.”

Strings Quartet

“We had a Crystal Strings Quartet for our ceremony. The quartet did a great job with the music we selected for our ceremony. They played a beautiful version of Hoppipolla for our wedding processional and our only regret is that we didn’t keep them for the cocktail hour since we didn’t hear much of them and what we heard sounded fantastic. They were responsive by email and very professional.”

Violinist & DJ Nate Goodrich

“I hired the Steven Vance Company for my 8/18/2018 wedding in West Virginia. We got the opportunity to work with Nate Goodrich, and I couldn’t have been happier! Nate was wonderful! Nate played traditional violin for our outdoor ceremony, electric violin for cocktail hour, and then followed as our MC/DJ the rest of the evening. Not only was Nate extremely kind, he followed through with all of our requests! Guests are still raving about Nate! I would recommend Steven Vance and Nate to anyone looking for quality music services for their next event!”

Electric Violin & DJ Package

“Having been to several weddings with mediocre DJs, and knowing that the DJ can really make or break the night, I set out to find someone who would really make our wedding day amazing. I searched high and low, and when I sat down with my Fiancee to talk to Steven, we were very excited to book him. I honestly didn’t believe that someone could have straight 5 star ratings, be a combination DJ and Violinist, AND be affordable, but holy smokes, Steven blew my expectations out of the water! He was in touch with us throughout our planning phase and was an amazing performer, MC, and DJ. We honestly couldn’t recommend him enough to EVERYONE! There were so many people that came up to us throughout the wedding telling us how amazing he was, and to this day, people are still telling us that our wedding was one of the best ones that they’ve been to. He was very professional, well spoken, and had an amazing way of getting people onto and off of the dance floor all night, I think our wedding had the most consistent presence on the dance floor of any wedding I’ve ever been to! I think what I liked most about working with Steven is that he tried to go above and beyond to make sure everyone’s name was pronounced properly, to get our specific song requests, and even learned to play Tale as Old as Time from Beauty and the Beast for my wife to walk down the aisle to, and let me tell you, it was amazing. If I ever get to plan anything else, Steven will be at the top of my list!”
