~Everything I Was Hoping For~ Atoka String Quartet played at my wedding this past weekend. They were professional and did such a beautiful job. They were the perfect addition to my ceremony! I would recommend them to anyone that is looking for musicians for a special occasion.
Thank you so much for playing during our wedding ceremony in September. Your pop/rock repertoire, along with all of the classical pieces, and your willingness to arrange "Thank You" by Led Zeppelin made choosing you a no brainer! We'll definitely keep you in mind for the future (and pass the word, too).
Atoka was very easy to communicate and deal with. They delivered everything we could ask for and more with short notice and minimal communication. The group was great and very easy to work with. If we ever need anything in that genre again we will surely use them!
We really enjoyed having Atoka perform at our wedding - Tara was very communicative throughout and understanding of my periods of delayed responses. They worked nicely to accommodate our requests and fill in the remainder based on our preferences. I'd strongly recommend them!
