What do people say about us?

Here are some wondefully kind words and praise that we have recieved:

"Oopsie Mamushka were lovely and couldn't have been a more elegant bonus to our lunch party, everybody has commented on how surreal it was to have the beautiful sound of such a professional quartet in the background while they ate their lobster!"
Sarah Tillie - Private Client

"Oopsie were professional, exciting, hilarious and massively entertaining - we're so pleased booked them. They absolutely wowed a crowd of 150+ aged from 5 to 85.

"Since seeing them at the Union Chapel two years ago, we were super-keen to have them perform at our family event. It was a dream come true, and their fantastic musicianship, flexibility and brilliant sense of improvisational fun led to great audience participation as well as spontaneous infant-dancing! Just fab - we massively recommend them to all and sundry."
Paul Goodman - Concerto Group

"Unique and charming they are the most interesting string quartet I have ever seen, I love them! I feel so privileged to have had them make my guests laugh at my wedding!"
Sam Sontag, Private Client

"Everyone one loved them! We hired Oopsie for our wedding ceremony strings and they were perfect. No one expected the show later on. People would be having a drink on the lawn when suddenly and violinist is at their ear grinning away and playing Bach with furious speed. Brilliant!"
Tamsin Farin, Private Client

"I wanted something special for my 60th in Surrey. Stormont do all of our entertainment and they suggest Oopsie to spice up the celebration. They were perfection. Starting off with a sophisticated background set they set a wonderful tone then later as all were a few glasses down, they became gradually more engaging and funny. They were the most talked about aspect of the day!"
Stuart Samson-Brown, Private Client
