A New Contemporary Approach to the “Classic” String Quartet

Early this year, Rossi Music saw the demand rising for more than just the standard classical string quartet for the Los Angeles weddings and corporate events that we book. Young brides and grooms have been requesting their favorite pop songs for their wedding ceremony in record numbers.   So we started to put the word out, looking for talented young female string players interested in playing rock and pop standards in a string quartet format. Meanwhile, we collected arrangements of rock tunes for string trio and quartet to add to our repertoire. In a few weeks, we had a list of the hottest players in town – freelance musicians who actively play in movie scores and on screen in shows such as American Idol, America’s Got Talent, The Voice, and numerous talk shows and primetime television. In April, the Los Angeles Rock String Quartet was formed, rehearsed, video taped, and already performing and trying out the new groups arrangements at wedding ceremonies in the area.

We found arrangements from several prominent Los Angeles composer-arrangers of excellent rocking string trio and quartet arrangements from the 60’s to current pop hits. Songs like “My Sharona”, “I’m Yours” (Jason Mraz), Michael Jackson tunes, Led Zeppelin, Lady Gaga (Poker Face, Papparazzi, Bad Romance), You Belong to Me (Taylor Swift), Beatles, Elton John, Rolling Stones medley, Sting, and many others too numerous to mention. We have already produced several video clips of many of the songs in the Los Angeles String Quartet‘s repertoire that you can view at at http://www.rossimusic.biz/weddings-ceremony-demo.php

Jazz Trio for hire in Los Angeles

los angeles jazz bandsThe musicians of this trio are award-winning performers, and at the head of them is GRAMMY-WINNER Rick Rossi.

Let’s get to know Rossi from the people who have worked with him:

  • “Working with Rossi you get the advantage of his personal and professional connections among the Who’s Who of Los Angeles studio professionals. You get the benefit of his extensive knowledge of music. And you get the advantage of his over 25 years in the business as a sought-after studio musician, bandleader, and events professional…”
  • I first heard Rossi Music’s band at a friend’s wedding, and I made sure to ask for the name of the band and agency because they kept the dance floor going all night! I wanted a band that could play a wide variety of music for a crowd of a lot of different ages. Rossi’s band had an amazing song list, and they even played jazz and ballads for dinner! They have so many outstanding singers in the band they were able to do everything from classic rock to current top 40 pop. In addition, they had an excellent emcee who carefully made sure he pronounced all of our names correctly and gracefully accommodated all special requests, even at the last minute. My husband wanted to surprise me and sing a verse of John Legend’s “All of me”, and the band did a great arrangement! The keyboard player just accompanied at first and then he took over to sing the rest of the song; it was beautiful and moved me and a lot of the crowd to tears!

So having such a talent at the head of this jazz Trio you are sure of getting the best.
