The Acoustic Ensemble adds a unique twist to the traditional string quartet by adding percussion and bass to create a beautifully organic sound. They are perfect as instrumental background music for a corporate drinks reception, during dinner or as informal wedding reception music, covering both modern and classic tracks.

The sets are played on acoustic instruments with gentle amplification that does not intrude upon guests' conversations. For a special ambience, the Acoustic Ensemble can perform without amplification for boutique venues and select guest list events. Unamplified performances are recommended for events with less than 40 guests.

The Acoustic Ensemble creates the ideal environment for business events, providing relaxing background music for lunches, networking events, conference or seminar receptions and team meetings. For weddings, the orchestra add a romantic touch of live string ensemble for a wedding ceremony, and elegant entertainment for the drinks reception.

They are available to perform in two sizes, an original 6 piece ensemble, or an 11 piece ensemble. The latter has a large ensemble look and sound, and features a double string quartet plus two percussionists and double bass. Both formats have over 3 hours of repertoire to choose from, which is constantly updated. Recent additions include the beautifully anthemic ‘One Day Like’ This by Elbow and the poignant ’Blowers Daughter’ by Damien Rice.

They have also recently expanded their orchestra to include a male or female vocalist with the option of keyboards. This line up has proved to be extremely popular for events looking for a more mellow atmosphere, but still wanting a vocalist to perform for guests.
