Accolades from satisfied clients about the Mallette String Quartet


My then-fiance and I really wanted to have something special at our wedding reception instead of the usual DJ or even band so we spent a long time looking at string music options. I found Mallette String Quartet after one late-night google search and I am so glad I did! They seemed perfect and I was hesitant to book because it almost seemed too perfect to be true but in the end our expectations were more than met! We had the quartet as the main entertainment for four hours of the reception (they even played the song for our first dance) and everyone loved it. The great thing about their repertoire is that in addition to the usual classical music, which is always nice to have, they have a huge list of string versions of contemporary pieces. Everything from Lady Gaga to Star Wars music. A couple of our guests were playing a game during the reception trying to guess which song was being played. Honestly my biggest regret about the wedding day is being too busy to pay enough attention to the music myself! As for pre-wedding, Bruce was very easy to work with, answered all my questions and did exactly what we wanted. Thank you for helping make our wedding day as special as it was! – Lusine & James, Glendale, CA

Bruce, I can’t say enough about Mallette String Quartet. Your quartet went out of its way to accommodate us for the music at our daughter’s wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. Our daughter chose music that was new to you because it was newly released and you were unbelievably patient and helpful in offering professional advice and a backup plan in the event it became necessary, as in the music we were hoping to acquire didn’t show up. Of course you were prompt, prepared and delivered everything you promised! You are true professionals and musicians. So thankful we were able to have Mallette String Quartet. You make beautiful music. Thank you! – Joni and Rusty Sherwood, Castle Rock, CO

As a wedding planner, I am always looking for talented, professional, and reliable vendors to refer to my clients. Mallette String Quartet is exactly the type of high-quality vendor I like to work with. They exceeded my expectations when I recently had the pleasure of working with them.

I would highly recommend the Mallette String Quartet for your next event! Their lovely music will not disappoint! – Nicole Alexandra Gillis, Nicole Alexandra Designs, Redondo Beach, CA

When Greg asked me to marry him, we chose a day only three months out. We thought that we would never be able to find a decent string quartet, which was high on our list of must haves. We could not have been more wrong. Bruce was not only easy to work with, helping us plan all of the music for our day, but they sounded wonderful! We used them for pre-ceremony, ceremony, and reception music. All of it was so beautiful. Bruce and his staff were both professional and friendly and they gave us the touch of elegance that we wanted for our wedding day. – Greg and Donna Sobiech, Burbank, CA

Creating a memorable event for my father’s 70th birthday celebration, was quite a challenge, especially since I lived nearly 400 miles away!

Without hesitation, I would recommend them to anyone wishing to add a classy and elegant touch to a special event. – Mark Hanna, The Hanna Agency, Walnut Creek, CA

For our big wedding day, we wanted to set a tone that would convey a feeling of warmth. Apart from our venue at the beach and the floral decorations, we knew that only one more thing could accent our event and provide the perfect setting- live music. Our appreciation of live music would ultimately lead us to explore the idea of commissioning a string quartet to perform while our guests arrived and throughout our ceremony, which was to be the most important aspect of our wedding event. After meeting with Bruce Mallette, we knew we had found the missing piece to the puzzle. The Mallette String Quartet performed various classical and contemporary string selections with grace and elegance, leaving our guests, myself and our families, in utter awe. Looking back on our special day brings the fondest of memories, thanks to the help of our friends, the Mallette String Quartet and the precious gift of the beautiful music they chose to share with us. – Anna and Bryan Jerden, West Hills, CA

Thank you so very much for helping make our dreams come true, the evening was absolutely fabulous!

Your professionalism and 100% attention to us was very appreciated. Once again, thank you very much for your superb performance!! – Evelyn and Mark Sasabuchi, Torrance, CA

We had the privilege of enjoying our own good judgement by employing the Mallette String Duo to provide live music at both our wedding ceremony and reception. Based on the size and location of the events, we opted for what we hoped might be a more classy and intimate type of music rather than just choosing a DJ or playing a pre-recorded CD. We were very happy with our selection- the string duo arrived on time, provided appropriate and very well-played music and greatly contributed to the truly special memories of the day. – Joel and Sheril Sydanmaa, Playa Del Rey, CA

Our whole family would like to thank you for providing such beautiful music for our House Warming party. The trio really made a big difference to the atmosphere.

Many thanks to you and your quartet for helping make our wedding day so lovely. Your music was one of the extra touches that helped make ours, a fairytale wedding.
