Having a string quartet was just the perfect touch for my wedding, and the Mersonacta Quartet was a great choice. They are excellent muscians and are very pleasant to work with. Very professional, easy to contact, and always friendly. Their list of songs to choose from is very extensive, too. Top choice.

I'm so sad I didn't have a chance to hear them more!!!! As the bride unfortunately, I only heard two songs!!! However, the two I heard.....amazing!!! My guests were completely blown away ( who had the pleasure of experiencing much more)!! Kit and Daniel are the sweetest people and so adaptable to change!!! They are a youthful, hip vibe on orchestrated music!!! I really can't express the professionalism and amazing range this quartet provided!!! Hands down, amazing!!!

The group is excellent! They arrived early and set up and played beautifully. My guests were complimenting what a nice touch it was to have this group of musicians there playing for our special day. I love the fact that they played a wide variety of music and not just the typical classical stuff. Highly recommend!

Mersonacta was fabulous! They are very organized, easy to contract with. Daniel and Kit were very helpful in music selection, and the best part? They sounded AMAZING. Having them at my event was the difference between an ordinary and boring corporate event, and a very classy, memorable party. Thank you!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Frequently Asked Questions
Is there a deposit?
Yes, the deposit is $50. Deposit is required to hold the reserved date. We cannot guarantee reservation until we have received your deposit and the signed contract/agreement. To reserve us, please go to the reservations page and fill out the Reservation Form. Once we can confirm that we have your availability, we will send you an electronic agreement, and your online deposit payment link. The deposit must be paid within 2 weeks of the issuing of the electronic agreement. The agreement will no longer be valid if the deposit is not paid within the 2 weeks of issue date. This 2 weeks is a grace period which we will tentatively hold the reservation time and date for you. We accept Paypal for online deposits.
How does the process work?
First you have to let us know when the event is, where it is going to be, how long you need our services for, and what kind of music are you looking for. If you decide that you want our services, simply let us know that you’re ready to lock down the date by signing an agreement with us. Meanwhile, you can email or call us anytime for additional information, or come to hear us play at one of our free auditions before we begin the agreement/contract signing process.
I'm on a budget. Do you guys offer duet or trio service?
Yes. We've had many clients who've used our duet service and have been very pleased with the results.
Can I still book you guys even if the event is only a week away?
Yes. Although our availability might be limited, but do contact us and find out!
What kind of music do you guys play?
We offer everything from classical to contemporary, and with a musical library as big as ours, you can pick and choose across the multiple genres to keep your guests entertained! Just take a look at our repertoire section and see for yourself. We also offer custom music arrangement/transcription service at additional cost.
How long should I hire you for my event?
Most events range between the 2-3 hour span, while wedding ceremonies are only about an hour long including the seating of the guests (with the exception of catholic weddings). We only need about 15 minutes to set up, and a 5 minute break for every hour we play. We are more than happy to pause to accommodate speeches, toasts, or other events in your schedule. We usually arrive 30 minutes ahead to set up.
Can I hear you guys play before I hire you?
Absolutely, and we hope you can share this experience with your loved ones! We hold free public concerts regularly for our friends and potential clients at a predetermined location between the months of February and May. These concerts are free to the public, however, the exact date and time of the concerts will be posted on our website approximately two week prior to the concert date.
What if I have a special song that I want you guys to play during the event?
We would be more than happy to play that special song for your event. If you already have sheet music in string quartet format, we can play those almost immediately free of charge as part of your music selection for the event. If you have the sheet music for your song in a different format (such as piano or guitar), we still need to charge a transcription of $40. Please allow up to 21 days for the transcription service to take place. Cost for arrangement/transcription service depends on the difficulty as well as length of song. If you do not have any sheet music of the song, simply point us to the video of the song on YouTube or send us an mp3 file via email — and we will make the transcription happen.
What if my event goes over the contracted hour? How are increments billed?
We bill in 15 minute increments, at 25% of the initial hourly rate.
What is your performance & formal attire?
Normally all black professional attire unless requested otherwise.
how do I pay you?
For deposit, we accept Venmo or Paypal. For final payment, we accept cash, check, or Venmo.
