GENERAL FAQS 

What does “Cattus” mean?

"Cattus" means "cat" in Latin. We're pretty fond of cats. And animals in general. (Dogs, too!) So we donate a portion of all proceeds to various charitable organizations that protect and provide services to animals. Meet our very own furry friends, and learn more, here.  

Can I hire a solo cellist to play my anniversary dinner?

Of course! We are a string quartet, but we offer string trio, duo, or solo string players. 

We also frequently collaborate with top notch guitarists and pianists for all kinds of events. For example, if you'd like to hire a piano/cello duo or a violin/cello/guitar trio for your wedding or corporate party, please let us know and we can make it happen! 

Can you play my wedding in Santa Barbara?

Gladly! We serve Los Angeles and all surrounding counties -- Ventura, Santa Barbara, and Orange County, as well as the Inland Empire. Travel fees may apply depending on your exact location. 

Do you play outdoors?

Yes, of course! We do require full shade from the sun, no rain, and moderate temperatures in order to keep our instruments in tip-top shape. They're pretty sensitive to climatic extremes, so we thank you in advance for helping us take care of them.

Can I make a special request for a song?

Please do! We love providing a rendition of that special song that will make your wedding or event all the more meaningful for you.

In addition to our Classical repertoire, we have an extensive collection of Jazz, Pop, and Rock songs to fit whatever mood you desire. Everything from The Beatles to Bruno Mars. Please take a look at our Library of songs and listen to our video samples!

If your requested song is not in our library, we can have it professionally arranged for you at a nominal fee.

What do you require to perform at the venue?

Only an armless chair for each member of our ensemble and enough space between us to move around and make some great music!

Great! How do I book you?
