HIRING MUSICIANS FROM THE BAND IS A GREAT OPTION AS THE MUSICIANS ARE ALREADY PRESENT FOR THE RECEPTION OR DANCING SECTION OF THE EVENT.

FIRST IT IS IMPORTANT TO PICK THE STYLE OF MUSIC AND OVERALL VIBE.  ONCE THAT IS COMPLETED WE CAN DECIDE WHICH INSTRUMENTATION WOULD FIT THE MUSIC BEST.  

TYPICAL COCKTAIL MUSIC INCLUDES; JAZZ, BALLADS, SWING, LOUNGE, CLASSICAL MUSIC AND OTHER BACKGROUND GROOVES.  TO PICK SPECIFIC COCKTAIL MUSIC PLEASE REFER TO EACH BANDS MUSIC LIST AS YOU WILL BE USING THE MUSICIANS FROM THAT SPECIFIC BAND.  The musicians can learn up to 4 new songs.

typical ceremony music includes; classical music, ballads, current tunes covered in a legato style and love songs.  ceremony music tends to be more personal.  we can collaborate and figure out what music fits your specific vision.  once we figure that out we can choose the ceremony instrumentation. THE MUSICIANS CAN LEARN UP TO 4 NEW SONGS.

THERE IS AN OPTION TO ADD A VOCALIST AS WELL, HOWEVER, ADDING A VOCALIST MEANS ADDING A MICROPHONE AND OTHER SOUND EQUIPMENT TO SUPPORT THE VOCALIST.  THE ADDED SINGER FEE WILL INCLUDE THE ADDITIONAL SOUND EQUIPMENT.

for ceremony musicians

the musicians are contracted per hour. ceremonies last about 20 minutes, however, our musicians play prelude music the first 30 minutes as your guests arrive and they also play the recessional song.
