(1) ELECTRIC STRING DUO
An exciting and unique spectacle with the "Wow" factor! Performances from the first two packages below can be split between two locations which are usually done as a background drinks reception/canapés plus an interactive roaming performance. Both sets are performed on electric violin and cello, and a costume change can be accommodated between sets if required.
The musicians have special instrument radio packs which allow them to walk in amongst the guests and around the tables during the performance. Their instruments are amplified so they can set the volume to your preferences and create both drama and elegance at your special event.
Alternatively, they can perform two 45 minute sets with one being more static and the other more interactive where they walk around the guests during this for a unique, elegant musical experience.
(2) TRADITIONAL BOLLYWOOD ACOUSTIC STRING QUARTET BACKGROUND MUSIC
Our elegant all-female string quartet can perform for up to three hours of Bollywood, classical and/or pop background music on traditional acoustic violins, viola and cello. The group is made up of some of the country's leading-strings musicians. Having studied at the UK's most prestigious music conservatories, many of our musicians have won awards. The players can wear Asian dresses or black ties for every performance and provide background music with a unique Bollywood twist creating a sophisticated and cool ambience. The perfect accompaniment to a drinks reception, civil ceremony, or dinner.
Solo violin or cello can be provided with similar timings to option 1.
They have a variety of different designer dresses in different styles and colours to suit every occasion.

Just wanted to send you a note to say that Rick was just such a rock star on our stand this week at Black Hat Europe. He is just such a super chap and totally wonderful to work with. He just rocks up and gets on with things, we had some issues with our cabling and he sorted that out and then just keeps rolling all day. He chats away with all the ‘customers’ and is a joy to work with. All our team at Carbon Black, just love him.
The event was a huge success and we have had some great feedback. It was certainly one of the most popular areas of the night!
It was a great night and we have had fantastic feedback on all the acts that you provided.
The acts went down really, people seem to enjoy them and each one appealed to a different group so a nice mix for all staff.
