5 stars - Status Cymbal are Highly Recommended
booked Status Cymbal for their Wedding at Hintlesham Hall Hotel in Suffolk

“As a novice in booking live entertainment I wanted the security of knowing that a replacement would be provided in the event of any problem with my first choice quartet. Gemma provided clear, prompt communication and answered my queries patiently and completely. Status Cymbal were the perfect choice for my wedding. We married in an evening, candlelit ceremony at a beautiful Elizabethan hall in Suffolk and they played a wonderful repertoire of classical pieces before and during the ceremony, and at the drinks reception afterward. I would recommend them to anyone as they were extremely well-organised, courteous, timely and beautifully rehearsed. The beautiful music added so much to our day and our guests loved them.”
