A Beautiful Touch to our Enchanting Day
Having Uptown Strings play the violin at our wedding was an amazing touch to our special day! Darcy was excellent to work with and was adaptable to the different styles of songs we wanted to incorporate into our wedding. Highly recommend, excellent service!Sent on 25/08/2021

Darcy and Ace were excellent to work with! Not only were they both extremely punctual with all responses but Darcy also accommodated two song requests from us in advance that were special to us but not on his original song list so he had to learn them on top of it all. We had a cooler than expected day for the ceremony and Darcy still performed so so well for us and our guests through the ceremony and our cocktail hour. We loved the special touch that having live music gave to our outdoor mountain wedding - much more authentic and personal than just a playlist and speaker and well worth the cost. Thank you Darcy and Ace!!Sent on 22/05/2019

Darcy Stamp, thank you for playing the requested songs perfectly, especially the brides processional song (I watched the video where I walked down the aisle a hundred times because of the spectular music). He went the extra mile to make the song exactly what we wanted.
Darcy is highly recommended. 🤩
