“Creating fresh and exciting new types of entertainment allows me to capture the essence of a client’s event and purpose in ways never before seen by them or their guests. I formed PopCulture Strings as a gift to hosts wanting to spice up a classic and take it to a new level.”—Andy Kushner

PopCulture Strings, award-winning Entertainment Producer Andy Kushner’s most recent creation, offers a contemporary new way to experience music. With a nod to the traditional notion of an instrumental group, Andy unpredictably can combine violins, a viola, and a cello with an array of instruments and sounds such as piano, rhythm sections, and the like. Then he elevates their power via a playlist that ranges from classic rock hits by Journey and Bon Jovi to contemporary hits of today by Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, and B.O.B.—and yes, they can also give powerhouse performances of classic standards.


“Thank you for another great event. Much positive feedback after the night at Air and Space.. The string quartet was a surprise hit and a large majority of the comments I received were about them. Highly recommend others using them.”

John Pensec—Director Corporate Communications & Public Affairs, Mueller Water Products, Inc.


Thanks so much for making the wedding a spectacular musical event. Everyone loved the Pop Culture Strings and Marquise. We danced our way through a wonderful night, and will be singing your praises to anyone who will listen. Ending with "Purple Rain" was particularly thoughtful, and "Stand By Me" was so much like the recorded version that our dance went off as well as it could have! :) Thank you again…

Joe and Jackie Deal

The event at out office was greatly enhanced by their performance of contemporary and fun music. I know our attendees enjoyed the added touch as well.

"PopCulture Strings was the perfect addition to our Opening Night reception. The ensemble brought extra excitement to the Mead Center. From Katy Perry to Lady Gaga, their performance was fresh, unique and entertaining."


"For our third annual Washingtonian Bride & Groom Unveiled event we really wanted to bring a new and fresh vibe to the table. With PopCulture Strings we accomplished just that! The mix of classical instruments with modern day hits struck exactly the right balance between the mothers of the brides generation and the brides themselves."

Erin Keating—Director of Marketing & Special Events, Washingtonian Magazine
