Siren are a unique, energetic, dynamic female string quartet featuring four of London's top string players.
Siren, have been in demand in countries throughout the world including performances of their stunning electric crossover show as headline act in Germany, France, Ireland,Spain, the UK and for the Sheiks in Dubai.
Siren have performed their show at Wembley Stadium, Ricoh Arena and Cardiff International Arena and the opening and closing shows for the Professional European 2008 Golf Championships on the Island of Cheju in South Korea.
They also performed at La Dolce Vita Ball in London supporting singing legend Billy Ocean.
They have completed two European tours with Gnarls Barkley including appearing a record 9 weeks in a row on the legendary Top of the Pops with the number 1 hit Crazy.
Siren have appeared on BBC1s Later With Jools Holland, Jonathan Ross, Live At Abbey Road, Channel 4s T4 Special, BBC Radio 1.
The siren show is ideal for corporate dinners, award evenings and upmarket weddings.
They perform a sophisticated background set over dinner for up to 60 minutes which includes light classical and popular standards with all the girls seated creating a classy ambience.
At the end of dinner they change costumes and return with an explosive audience grabbing 20 minute set. This is performed with all the girls (including cellist) standing up and incorporates exciting choreography and specially written backing tracks featuring drums and guitar.
The girls use specially designed wireless electric instruments which allows them to move into the audience.
Siren can be booked to perform a classical dinner set as background music, or the dynamic electric show on its own. However, we would recommend that booking both shows allows you to deliver the element of surprise with the second set really raising the temperature bringing the audience to its feet, with stylish choreography and a performance that is packed with energy.
It showcases a completely different style of music.
Siren also perform a set of exciting rock covers including Happy and Uptown funk on acoustic or electric instruments.
We had an outstanding 2014 with breathtaking performances which included supporting Kylie Minogue in Doha and Take That in London, product launches in Berlin, Copenhagen, opening the new Harvey Nichols store in Kuwait, performing with models at fashion shows and amazing parties in London, Athens, Barcelona and Dubai.
Other great events we played at were concerts at Cadogan Hall with Japanese superstar - Miki Imai.
The Siren girls are often in high demand also performing and recording with artists such as Lana Del Rey, Ne-Yo, Katherine Jenkins and Damon Albarn so listen out for their next hits!
SIREN are very excited to offer a new background set with current chart hits which is a one hour set with backing tracks, it will be without choreography (we still offer our high impact choreographed show if you would rather have the higher octane experience). This set will be just playing, we can adapt to your needs and come as a quartet, trio or duo. We can also provide full production.
We are also very experienced at award ceremonies where we can provide live stings.

You were all truly sensational on Friday night. It was a treat to have you there. The setting worked just perfectly for you with the mirror panels and swathes of fabric. The music was infectious and hugely dramatic. I know all the guests loved it and set the standard superbly high for Rod to follow. He didn't disappoint but for the difference in fee, you were real value for money!!! We were inspired by Escala, but feel we fell upon gold in discovering you, I really hope that lots of other people strike lucky, I just can't imagine what more anyone could offer - 4 stunning girls, hugely talented and who looked like they were enjoying themselves as much as the guests. Thank you so much for what was an enormous and much talked about contribution to the evening”
