Nothing says classy like a professional string quartet. Far from your usual instrumental combo, STRING LOVE offers world class musicians with style to match. Unlimited in their ability to play everything from classical to contemporary arrangements, this lineup will surprise your guests with unexpected tunes from The Police, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Adele, The Beatles, even Metallica. They can also accommodate everything from your wedding ceremony instrumentals to ambient dinner music. String Love has the largest repertoire list of any string group in Utah, and we are constantly adding to it. For an extensive list of tunes please peruse the complete STRING LOVE song list, and if you don’t see something you’d like, please send us your requests.


With versatility in mind, STRING LOVE can tailor their tune list and ensemble size to suit your unique event. For a more intimate event hire the String Love trio. To make an even bigger impression you can add additional string players to the mix. Our most common addition is an upright bass which adds not only an amazing low end, but also greatly expands our rock and pop repertoire. Whether it’s an intimate backyard wedding or a massive city celebration, this lineup aims to please. Affordable and accommodating, this Utah string quartet is a perfect combination of talent and style to stay within any budget. Whatever your event space and audience may require, STRING LOVE has the capability to accommodate seamlessly.


More than anything else, String Love is known for going to great lengths to try and accommodate any request. We want your wedding ceremony to be as unique as you are. Want to walk down the aisle to the first song you ever danced together to? We’ve done that. Want to recreate the wedding scene from Love Actually? We’ve done that. Want to add another instrument or have a special vocal number? We’ve done all of that. We can perform with a piano, guitar, vocals, or any other combination you’d like. One of our very favorites, and an increasingly common request, is strings and harp. We don’t just show up and play the same string quartet songs for you as for every other client (unless that’s what you want). Your day is special, and your music should be too.


String Love does have the largest string quartet repertoire in Utah, but if you’ve got a song you want to hear that isn’t on our song list please tell us and we will find it or we will create it from scratch. Our players are not just great instrumentalists, they are experienced arrangers. Dozens of our songs started out as special requests that were arranged by our players and have since become group and audience favorites. Check out some of the unique string arrangements we’ve done here.


STRING LOVE loves to bring their signature brand of stringed entertainment to your town. Well-traveled and seasoned musicians, they are no strangers to destination weddings and events. While they primarily play in Utah and the surrounding states, this solid selection of players has partners nationwide and can easily accommodate out-of-town performances. Pros at providing all-inclusive travel packages that include hotels, production, backline, and all applicable expenses, just ask for a quote and leave the logistics to us. Relax, kick up your feet, and rest assured that STRING LOVE guarantees the gold standard of string music at your upcoming event.
