Testimonials

We just returned from Melbourne a couple of days ago.  What can I say about your service other than it was excellent.  Enigma Strings were amazing and played everything we wanted with no issues at all.  We were very impressed by their style and I had numerous comments and questions about how I found them.    The Dingalings were also excellent.  I also received great feedback regarding their music.  They were simply great and the entire experience was a lot of fun.  I am really happy that I found your company and those musicians – they were AMAZING.  Everyone had a great time listening to the string quartet and then dancing to the Dingalings.

Cheers,

Dave and Sarah

Just a note to say thank you for the wonderful group given to us for our daughter’s wedding last Saturday.

Hey Sister were fantastic and the guests really got into the music. Engima set the scene and their music was also very much enjoyed by the guests.
