The trio were awesome!!! We practiced with a recording the day before our wedding, but when they played on the day it was even better :) Absolute professionals - please pass on our sincere thanks to them.

Where to begin? We had very high expectations of the quartet and they exceeded them by a mile! Everything was absolutely perfect, and we had guests telling us how beautiful the music was. Please pass on our sincerest thanks to the players. They really added an extra level of elegance, and in no way could I fault them. Thank you for your help, and your prompt and friendly service throughout this process. It is hugely appreciated!

A massive thank you to The Black Quartet for their superb performance at Tourism New Zealand’s Business Events National Awards Dinner. They created a wonderful atmosphere and added another layer of sophistication to the event. Many of the guests commented on the calibre of the beautiful music and the great selection of classic kiwi songs they performed. I was also extremely impressed with their professionalism. Would highly recommend.

The Black Quartet played beautifully as I welcomed guests to my event. They are professional, creative and immensely talented. It was a great pleasure to enjoy the great classics as well as their surprising interpretations of contemporary songs.
