Weddings/Functions/Corporate Events

The energy provided by live music at an event should never be underestimated. Palm Strings have a broad repertoire that covers styles from the earliest classical to the latest pop hit. We do our best to honour requests and have an ensemble to suit any budget or venue.

Despite their years of experience, Palm Strings regularly updates their repertoire to keep up with the change in musical tastes.
