Corporate and Nonprofit Testimonials

San Francisco Symphony “The San Francisco Symphony worked with Eclecta Quartet for our Opening Night Gala in September 2016.  The trio welcomed guests with a classical variation on contemporary songs as they entered the event space.  Their ability to capture and convey the artistry of each and every song was felt by our attendees and set a beautiful tone for the remainder of the Gala celebration.”

– Volunteer Council, San Francisco Symphony

“We hired Eclecta Quartet to entertain a few hundred guests at a high-profile, Rock of Ages-themed fundraiser. Working with them was a dream come true: From booking the group to selecting music, talking through wardrobe options, and their onstage performance, they were continually professional, prepared, and FUN to work with. Our guests couldn’t stop talking about them…we can’t wait to work with Eclecta Quartet again!”

– Cynthia B., Bay Area Events Planner

Wedding Testimonials

“You were all amazing and were everything we could have ever imagined!!!” – Jenna, Bride

“We hired Eclecta Quartet to play during our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. Being that my husband and I are huge fans of rock ‘n’ roll, Eclecta’s contemporary music playlist really allowed for our event to be reflective of us. Before deciding to hire, I spoke to Shaina about our ‘hard rock’ vision, and she quickly researched composition for specific songs we could add. She was responsive, professional, and gave us many opportunities to customize our playlist in a way that made our day so unique and special. In the weeks leading up to the wedding day, the team was also in direct contact with my wedding coordinator, hashing out the last minute details about set-up, timing the bridal party procession, and more, so I could just focus on enjoying my wedding.

“Eclecta’s performance on the big day was INCREDIBLE!!! They created such a wonderful ambiance for both the ceremony and the cocktail hour. They played a beautiful custom arrangement of “our song” as I walked down the aisle toward my husband to be. They executed the vision I had for that moment perfectly. Our guests (many also big rock n’ rollers) were blown away by their various renditions of our favorite Led Zeppelin, Metallica, ACDC, Ozzy Osbourne and Queen songs. I can’t tell you how many times our guests came up to us to rave about these ladies. I was thrilled when I noticed that they even took the time to sign our vinyl record guest book. They made our day so, so special and I cannot thank them enough.”

– Taryn and Kevin, Bride and Groom

“Eclecta Quartet graced the beautiful Marin Art and Garden Center for my daughter and son in law’s wedding last summer! They were not only musically lovely, they were easy to work with and efficient as well. Their music performance for the ceremony and cocktail hour was perfect – we would use them again!”

– Erin, Mother of the Bride

“I first heard Shaina play solo at a wine bar. Her music was so beautiful and fascinating. After the performance I asked for her business card and I saved it for three years until my daughter got engaged. Shaina and her quartet did not disappoint us. The opening classical piece was gorgeous and the exit was joyous. After the ceremony, the quartet played for cocktail hour. They used a mix of traditional and contemporary songs, and many guests commented on the lovely music. The bride and groom, who had never heard them play, were so happy with our choice. My husband and I also very much appreciated that the quartet was dressed beautifully to match the formal tone of the wedding. I would strongly recommend Shaina and her Eclecta Quartet for any event. They are very talented musicians that will turn your day into a celebration to be remembered.”
