The quartet has a lush, full sound ideal for outdoor settings, wine caves, restaurants, churches, hotels and resorts, and many other venues. We offer everything from elegant and unobtrusive background music to more animated, lively music for receptions and open houses. Whatever your entertainment needs, group leader Peggy Brady will see to it that the sets are perfectly tailored to match the style and tone of your event.
