Jeff and I would like to thank Bernie Pasamba, the singer, and the quartet for a job well done. They gave our ceremony and the whole evening an air of elegance. They exceeded our expectations!
Every piece we picked were played smoothly even when they weren't included in their repertoire. He picked the perfect singer for our music choices, too.
Communication with Bernie is the smoothest. We never had a chance to Zoom meet with him, but every request we made were done on our wedding day! They are one of the suppliers that won't stress you out, very reliable.
We will definitely pick Bernie Pasamba again and again for our special events. Thank you for making our special day extra magical.
All the best,
Rizza and Jeffrey

"Dear Bernie Pasamba,
Jane and I are settling back into reality in Canada and we would like to take this opportunity to thank you, your band and soprano Opalhene for a memorable experience during our wedding day. We received many compliments from our guests. We all felt the combination and talents of your band with a flute, cello, violin, piano along with Opalhene's angelic voice enhanced our special day. They were asked to make changes on the wedding day with little adjustment time and were very helpful and accommodating. We thank all of you for your help and guidance and wish you the best with your future projects."

We wanted to thank you and your talented group of artists. Jane and I received positive comments for not only the talented singer but also for the entire band. Jane and I at one point wanted to go get a picture with them and thank them but we realized they had left so that's our fault for not doing it earlier. At the end of the program, we did thank you and your band. All the best to you and your family and hope your next trip is very memorable and fun. Take care!

Bernie, we didn’t even get to say proper thanks to your crew - but what an amazing musical ensemble! They were all so professional and artistically just playing each their part that gets woven into this enchantingly orchestrated music. Soprano had us all smitten and swooning over her voice. Perfect. When we exited the church during recessional, all we could do was look their way, stop midway and bow with thanks to your team, who did boomerang us genuine smiles in return. Amazing beyond words. Clean and perfect execution of musical scores. Maraming salamat for being part of our special day."

"Dear Mr. Pasamba,
I'd like to tell your three music artists who made up the group that provided the music at my birthday dinner (EDSA Shang, April 27) how they made the evening especially pleasant and delightful!
They played the music of my time on the violin, piano and flute and exerted effort to find the material of the songs I included in my list, which were not in yours. I appreciate their doing April Love, as requested, as their first and Silver Threads Among the Gold after the cake rites.
Thank you to Ricana, MA de Leon and Jais Mendez. You were wonderful! I wish I had been able to thank you personally that evening. I hope this is not too late for an acknowledgment. I look to, perhaps, another evening of your beautiful music.

They are very professional, ever reliable supplier and have a very talented team of musicians.
If you want coordinating your music to be easy and stress-free, their team exceeds client expectations and takes the stress out of planning the perfect musical backdrop to a wedding or a corporate event.
It is always a delight and pleasure to work with them for the last 20 years and looking forward to more years of musical adventure with the team Bernie Pasamba."

"As an events coordinator myself, there are three things I look out for in an event supplier:
1) Affordability of rates
2) Professionalism in handling clients
3) Quality of performance
All three are met exceptionally well by Bernie Pasamba's Team. They are musicians who have mastered their craft and are definitely worth recommending to my clients."
Perfection is synonymous to the name of Bernie Pasamba, as his musicians ( The Bernie Pasamba Strings) offer their utmost best in providing music to various events , as we musicians would say it is better to be felt , than just be heard.

"Strings and Singers of Bernie Pasamba. Spectacular performance! Everyone exceeded our expectations!"
CHRIS BORRA (Planners Plus Events Co.)
"We have been in the business for almost 14yrs and have worked regularly with so many groups of Mr. Bernie Pasamba. All i can say is, aside from being very professional, their passion for their work can be seen with their top level performances. For them, its not abt the business opportunity but the happiness they bring to people who listen to their wonderful music. And this is the reason why I love working with them, they put their heart and soul in everything that they do."
JAMPAO REYES (Program Director, Ninoy and Cory Aquino Foundation)
"When the heart is full, the overflow is music."
The Bernie Pasamba Strings is a testament to this. Their music emanates from deep within that is why they have the power to move hearts and one’s being. Yes, each instrumentalist is a virtuoso in his or her own field. However, what sets the Bernie Pasamba Strings apart from all the other music ensemble is their ability to play with heart and soul. This makes their music sublime to the point of being “holy” almost.
ORESTES MONZON (MD. Nuclear Medicine Phil. Heart Center)
"We have asked Bernie Pasamba's quartet to play music in many events that we have organized - in specialty society’s fellowship nights, on special day occasions or even at home. But I could not forget one special event: our 30th Wedding Anniversary which was organized secretly.
It happened in a yacht while his quartet played romantic music while guests watched the sunset at Manila bay.
Later there were fireworks at the back of SM MOA where guests and my wife wondered if it was part of the celebration. Bernie Pasamba’s musical moments always play a key role in these wonderful events of our life."
JENNIFER RUGAY-DEL MUNDO (Bride)
"I am beyond happy that I have considered the Bernie Pasamba Strings to render some magic during our wedding reception in May of 2011. Kuya Bernie was so helpful in choosing appropriate music from the wedding proper to the reception. One of the highlights of this memorable occasion was his music and artistry. You can never go wrong!"
"It is always a pleasure to work with the Bernie Pasamba musical ensemble. Their musicians are talented, professional and easy to work with. Bernie specifically is very approachable, accommodating and works with clients to ensure that they set the right mood for their special day. It is no wonder that this group is one of the most sought after musicians in the industry."

Bernie is very prompt in his replies, always gives good suggestions on repertoires/music instruments and is very professional when it comes to call times and meetings. Your event will definitely be a success once you book Bernie Pasamba!"
Aileen Perez Events Hub
“Again, I thought Bernie would be expensive since I read about his group in the society pages. Not at all!!! He is also so professional that all we had to do was give him the list of songs we wanted played. We had the tenor sing at the church too. The way he sung the Our Father exceeded our expectations . It was so moving. Aldrich burned CD to be played while sina Bernie were on break. Bernie and his team liked our CD thay they even requested for a copy so that they can play it in other weddings.”
"Bernie your Quartet made our party very enjoyable!!! Our friends were treated not only to good food but to very good music as well."
“ I always knew Bernie Pasamba is one of the best out there. A quartet with one soprano and a tenor, they went above and beyond our greatest hopes and really made the evening memorable…great music, great choice of songs, great singers and above all great rendition…. I have never seen such great performance in my life that eve our guest said that it was one of the highlights of our reception. They really set the tone of the whole event. Loved my wedding march and the first dance, loved all songs played. The selection of music could have not been more perfect and the ease of working with them was the icing on the cake. We couldn’t be happier."
“ Everyone was happy with the music specially with the singers performance. They were all ears all the whole time he was singing. I'm not sure about the singers name but it was the guy who is in the website’s sample music”
“ Again, Bernie was one of the those suppliers located at Shang. Guests were highly impressed with them. Because they were a quartet with two singers, I was concerned that they wouldn’t sound very impressive or “grand”. But I was wrong. Their rendition of the “ The Prayer” during the bridal walk was tear-jearking. And the “ Our Father” was soulful. When we were receiving guests into the ballroom for our reception, I could hear them playing classical music in the background. It was magical. They sang broadway tunes during dinner and again, it was impressive.”
