"We recently booked Oberon String Quartet for a conference as some entertainment for the Gala Dinner and drinks reception. All I can say is WOW! They really read the crowd and played a mixture of both contemporary and classical music and everyone loved their contribution. As we sat for dinner, it was just a perfect match for great conversation mixed with excellent music. I would highly recommend them for any occasion. Thank you so much guys!"
