Pop Culture Strings

Pop Culture Strings is more than a group of uber-talented, young, and stylish string musicians — rather, it offers a new way to experience music as these instruments unite in unexpected combinations and other instruments such as piano, rhythm sections, and the like. Ranging from standards by Cole Porter and Frank Sinatra to classic rock hits by Journey and Bon Jovi, and extending to contemporary hits of today by Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, and B.O.B.—these two violins, a viola, and a cello have never sounded so contemporary.

“Thank you for another great event. Much positive feedback after the night at Air and Space.. The string quartet was a surprise hit and a large majority of the comments I received were about them. Highly recommend others using them.”

Thanks so much for making the wedding a spectacular musical event. Everyone loved the Pop Culture Strings and Marquise. We danced our way through a wonderful night, and will be singing your praises to anyone who will listen. Ending with “Purple Rain” was particularly thoughtful, and “Stand By Me” was so much like the recorded version that our dance went off as well as it could have! 🙂 Thank you again…

“For our third annual Washingtonian Bride & Groom Unveiled event we really wanted to bring a new and fresh vibe to the table. With PopCulture Strings we accomplished just that! The mix of classical instruments with modern day hits struck exactly the right balance between the mothers of the brides generation and the brides themselves.”
