THE Rock & Pop String Quartet.

"Their mix of musical choices is stunning."

Jess (wedding client)

TSQ is the wedding string quartet you want if you’re looking for a classic sound with a modern twist. Offering stunning string quartet (or trio) versions of modern songs, TSQ has you covered for your entire wedding – from ceremony music, to cocktails, to dinner and beyond.

"Our guests couldn't believe how amazing they sounded - playing pieces from Bach to Journey."


Beautiful Versions of Modern Songs

Working within the traditional string quartet instrumentation of violin, viola, and cello, TSQ offers classic songs of Motown, pop, Broadway, soul, funk, rock, jazz, swing, hip-hop, gaming, tv & film, and of course the Western classical music canon.

"The songs were both well-arranged and perfectly suited the mood at any given moment."

Perfectly Original

A revelation for multi-generational weddings.

TSQ is a perfect one-size-fits-all music solution for any wedding, but these musicians are especially beloved at multi-generational, multi-cultural weddings, where a classic song at the right time can bridge boundaries. Review our classic pop song list and classical repertoire lists.

Your Wedding Playlist Come to Life.

We’ll work with you to put together the best batch of songs from TSQ’s repertoire, which ultimately becomes your wedding string quartet playlist, played live. We also offer one “special request” - a song that’s not yet in the group’s songlist - which the group will learn and play especially for your celebration.

Music for Weddings

TSQ is skilled at navigating the trappings of the wedding ceremony. TSQ’s musicians are experts at bringing the songs in and out during the ceremony. We fit the music to your moment, taking the pressure off of you, so you can lose yourself in the wedding and not worry about the speed in which you’re walking down the aisle.

We offer music for the Prelude, Processional, and the Recessional. If you have any special, custom moments planned for your ceremony, let us know and we can discuss how to make those happen according to your preferences.

Not sure what the Prelude, Processional, and Recessional are? No problem! We can walk you through the planning process and help you pick the songs that fit you best.


Tribute String Quartet is the perfect fit for cocktail hour. The group’s arrangements of modern pop songs in a traditional string ensemble instrumentation makes for the perfect mix of classic sound and fun energy.


TSQ is often asked to play beyond the cocktail hour – into dinner and beyond. We offer packages that include the group playing through dinner and even playing for the first dance, before turning it over to a DJ or band.

For weddings that focus on the meal rather than dancing, TSQ can be booked for the entire event.

"Classical enough to fly under the radar for our older guests, but recognizable enough to make our younger guests smile."


Who is TSQ?

Tribute String Quartet (& Trio) is comprised of a small group of NYC musicians, playing violin, viola, and cello, invited by famed arranger and TSQ music director Dana Lyn to play her favorite classic pop song covers. As the repertoire has grown with each event, so has the group’s comradery.

"My guests couldn't stop raving about how amazing they sounded."

Erin (wedding client)

One of the most sought after classic pop string quartets in New York City.

Since putting out their first record in 2011, TSQ has become the go-to string ensemble for weddings & events throughout the New York events industry. TSQ has found praise from none other than pop legends A-ha for their cover of "Take On Me," and bandmembers have recently performed in the bands of the Hadestown musical, D'Angelo, Bruce Springsteen, Sara Bareilles, Jay-Z, and Björk.

"We would have them back in a heartbeat!"

Rave Reviews

You’ll be stunned by how the strings version of a pop or rock song can be transformed into something even more amazing. We hired them for our ceremony and cocktail hour and we got so many compliments from our guests about how original and incredible the music was. If you’re looking for a really cool way to differentiate yourself from all the other weddings, book TSQ for your ceremony (or the whole shebang!). You won’t regret it.

TSQ was a huge hit at our wedding, and our guests are still talking about them! From classic music to modern pop, TSQ can make any song perfect for your wedding. We would absolutely recommend them
