I can't say enough about Innocenti Strings. I booked them from their website, and Ben was extremely helpful through e-mail. I submitted all my requests for music through their user-friendly website. The week of the wedding, the head musician contacted me and we were able to chat about any last minute things. She confirmed all of my music choices. The music was BEAUTIFUL! I was very happy. It sounded so lovely. We moved the ceremony outside at the last minute, and they just went with it, no complaints. I thought the price was well worth it. Book them with confidence!
I had a small religious ceremony, but it was not in a church. Having the four piece quartet at my wedding made everything so beautiful and original. The musicans were talented and very professional. It gave the feeling of a grand ceremony, in a small and cozy setting. Ben Kulp was awesome. I wanted to do something different for my wedding and he recommended the most beautiful pieces, that were original and reflected my taste. Having the quartet play during cocktail hour was so elegant. Having a quartet not only enriched my ceremony, but lended a traditional feel to my not-so-traditional wedding. My wedding music and ceremony were sooo important to me, I was really happy with the job Innocenti Strings did!
We spent a great number of hours coordinating with other string vendors. the price was well worth it. The musicians were dressed professionally and blended into the vineyard setting with the perfect compliment of music. Although, I did not spend much time socializing with the duo, the wedding guests praised their talents and commented on their professionalism. We would definitely consider them again for any event requiring strings and highly recommend them to other event planners.
Innocenti Strings did a wonderful job at our wedding in September 2011. The group offers a variety of musicians to choose from (violin, cello, harp, etc.), and we chose a violinist and harpist to play at our ceremony. Each song they played before, during, and after the ceremony sounded beautiful. There was a wide selection of music to choose from on the website, ranging from classical/typical wedding music, to songs from movies and popular bands.

Emma Grifith, Wedding,
Innocenti Strings played beautifully at my wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. This talented group is professional, versatile, and punctual. They also fulfilled a special favor for my cantors by sending them an mp3 to rehearse with. They also play a wide range of music from classical to rock, and movie soundtracks!!

Daniel Holloway, Cello.
A native of Atlanta, GA, Daniel Holloway commenced his lifelong musical journey at the young age of five when he began studying the guitar with his father. In his youth, he was musically educated through means of demonstration and memorization, and did not learn to read music until his teenage years when he became involved in his middle school string orchestra program. After looking over the instruments offered in the string orchestra, the double bass drew his attention because of its similar tuning to the guitar. By age thirteen, he was achieving much success on both instruments. The final discovery of his “true musical voice” was not achieved, however, until a year later when he heard world-renowned cellist, Yo-Yo Ma, performing the Bach cello suites on PBS. It was at this very moment that he became captivated by the instrument’s beautiful and expressive sound and decided to fully commit his efforts into mastering this eloquent instrument.
Soon after his newly claimed vow to play the cello, he began lessons with Nan Maddox, a former cellist of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. Just two years after switching to the cello and studying privately, he auditioned and was accepted into the Atlanta Symphony Youth Orchestra, where he played music with the city’s most talented young musicians and received training from various members of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra.
This experience enabled him to meet his second teacher and musical mentor Martha Gerschefski, the celebrated and highly respected cellist and pedagogue. In January 2003, he was invited by his high school orchestra director, Carol Doemel to play the Herbert Cello Concerto No. 2 with the Lassiter High School Symphony Orchestra at the Georgia Music Educator’s Association festival in Savannah, Georgia. His progress during his high school years with Martha and ASYO inspired him to pursue music professionally, and upon graduating, he auditioned for several music schools around the country, eventually choosing Columbus State University’s Schwob School of Music in Columbus, Georgia.
There he was afforded the opportunity to study cello with professor Andre Gaskins, a former assistant to the famed Janos Starker. During his college studies in Columbus, Daniel enjoyed teaching private lessons as well as playing cello in the Columbus, LaGrange, Albany, and Macon Symphony Orchestras. He also attended the Brevard Music Center in Brevard, North Carolina for two summers.
After receiving his Bachelor's degree in Music Performance from CSU, he went on to pursue his Master’s degree at Southern Methodist University’s Meadows School of the Arts in Dallas, TX where he studied cello under the world-renowned cellist, Andres Diaz. During his time in Dallas, he enjoyed much success freelancing in the area and teaching private cello lessons through Plano Independent School District. Presently, Mr. Holloway resides in Woodstock, GA. He performs regularly as a member of the Columbus Symphony Orchestra, LaGrange Symphony Orchestra, Columbus Ballet, and Macon Symphony Orchestra and teaches cello lessons throughout the metro Atlanta area.
