The Got Strings team is made up of 10 extraordinary musicians from James Madison University who are the perfect balance of professional and fun! One of the many things that makes our group unique is that we are all friends and love to make music together. Our performing ensembles include String Duo, String Trio, and String Quartet. Since August of 2016, we have regularly performed for over 50 Wedding Ceremonies, Cocktail Hours, Corporate Events, Anniversary Parties, Reunions, Church Services, and other special events in the Shenandoah Valley. Whatever the occasion, we can't wait to celebrate with you!
Hi! I'm Kristi Monte, owner of Got Strings and lover of coffee, LipSense, and yoga. I'm a Jersey girl embraced by southern hospitality and never looked back. If you're booking Got Strings for your wedding or special event, we're sure to become fast friends! I love to build relationships with our clients and make them feel comfortable and relaxed while planning the music for their special day. When I'm not busy working, I'm probably practicing violin, reading, podcasting, or playing with my guinea pig Scout. Ready to learn more about our services? Let's connect!

Music for every occasion
