    Way beyond our expectations

    We found Alleya on Hitched and it was like finding gold. Alleya was great getting back to us from email number 1. She organized a first meeting which went really well so we decided to go ahead with her. She was super flexible with all our song choices and kept in touch all the time up to when she was already at the venue all ready to start.
    The music was amazing! Our guests and us were so pleased with the music and her performance.
    We really highly recommend Solas Strings for your party. Go with them and you will have a flawless musical experience.
    Everything we could ask for and more.
    Thank you Alleya for making our day super special ❤️
