- String instruments are beautiful to look at as well as listen to!
- Repertoire spans around 300 years and many different styles. Something for everybody…
- Set up is straightforward so they don’t have to be stationed in the same place the whole time they are booked. (allow 10 mins for new set-up)

Outside of work with the string quartet you might catch the musicians on stage with an orchestra (including the Auckland Philharmonic, the Waitakere City Orchestra, the Auckland Chamber Orchestra and Hamiltons Opus Orchestra).  Ask about options for a trio or duo if a more cost effective option is required.

Reviews

I just wanted to send through the amazing feedback I received about the Nikau Trio. It was a pleasure to have you play at the Next Woman of the Year awards last week and you set the mood for the evening perfectly. The members of the trio were so lovely and accommodating to work with, and the music was beautiful. When the occasion arises, I am sure I will be calling on you again.

Thank you so much for playing so beautifully at our wedding. We were so happy with having you there! Thank you also for arranging to play Lijosio and Such Great Heights for us. Both these songs have special significance for us so it meant so much that you took the time to play them for us, and played them so beautifully! Thank you for going the extra mile to do this. We really do appreciate it! Claire - 21 January 2012

These lovely ladies played at our wedding in November 2011, they were fabulous, was perfect music for our outdoor setting, they even went as far as learning the "Jaws" theme tune to play as the brides car turned up (unbeknownst to her), got a few comments that did, i would highly recommend you hire them.....

Thank you for the wonderful selection of music at our wedding in February 2011. The group were a great addition in the church, really setting the scene. We were lucky to have an amazing day and many guests commented on the beautiful sounds emanating from the garden during the reception with the selection of music absolutely spot on. We would highly recommend your lovely ladies. Many thanks, Katherine - 5 February 2011

The Nikau Duo did a wonderful job. We were very happy with their seamless performance. We very much appreciate that they showed up at the right time and no stress was caused. We would highly recommend. Emma & Aidan Rehman - 20 February 2016
