Other Services

Can you provide music for my ceremony or cocktail hour?

Yes! One or more musicians will often play music during the cocktail hour. Because our organization includes so many formally trained jazz musicians, couples often request our jazz trio.
We also have a large and fully rehearsed library of ceremony music ranging from Bach to Beatles.

 

Will you learn songs for our party?

Absolutely! Despite our lengthy song list, people often ask for special songs that are not included in our standard repertoire. We ask that you provide us with any special requests a month ahead of your event so we have time to fully prepare.

 

What do the musicians wear during performance?

The band dresses in formal attire unless otherwise requested.

 

Will you Emcee the event?

Yes, our lead singers and band-leader will act as emcee for your party. We work closely with you and the catering department to follow a schedule that enhances the flow of your event.

 

Is the band insured? Are any there hidden fees?

We are fully insured and proof of insurance can be provided to your venue. There is no tax and pricing always includes standard main stage sound system and production crew. We strive to be as transparent as possible with pricing and there are never any hidden fees.
 
Can you provide us with other production elements such as lighting?
If you are seeking a more elegant presentation, we can provide full-scale stage lighting and stages upon request.  Please call for complete information about custom ceremony and reception packages.
