Q: What happens if a member of Strelitzia is ill or not available for a booking?
A: Should any member of the group be unavailable for a booking they will be replaced by a deputy drawn from a select group of exceptional professional musicians.
Q: Will the quartet to too loud or not loud enough for my event?
A: As an acoustic quartet we play to your atmosphere and aim to be ‘background’ music (apart from for the entrance of the bride and exit of the couple during a ceremony). We are always aware of our setting ensure conversation can flow without being disrupted by the music being too loud.
Strelitzia is available as an Electric String Quartet. This setup would typically suit a larger event of say 130 people or more, gives a more contemporary feel and works particularly well for Bollywood music.
