Step 1: Questionnaire
Fill out our basic questionnaire - you can find it in the "contact" section of our website. If you're missing some info, don't worry and fill out whatever you can. This is just to give us an idea of the scale/style of your event.
Step 2: Quote
We will email you within 24 hours with a list of options, prices and other info tailored for your specific needs. If you have any questions, we're always happy to talk on the phone at any point in the process.
Step 3: Contract
Once you've settled on a band and its size, we'll draft the contract and email it to you.
Step 4: Deposit
Once we've both signed the contract, we will send you an invoice for the deposit to finalize the booking with your preferred method of payment.
Step 5: Done
In the time leading up to your event, we'll be checking in periodically with you (as well as your venue manager or event planner) to ensure the only thing you have to worry about at your event is having a good time.
How do I book a band?
-How far in advance can/should I book?
The earlier you contact us, the better chance we have of being available. However, if your event is happening very soon (even tonight!), please call us at 857-284-3975.
-When can we see the bands play?
Our bands often play in various configurations around the city. Oftentimes these are unadvertised shows, so drop us a line and we can keep you updated on their next gig.
-I'm looking for a kind of music I don't see on your website, can you help me?
We work with several bands that aren't yet listed on our website - anything from DJs and Brass Bands to Indian Classical music and singing pianists. If we can't help you, we'll be happy to refer you to someone who can.
-Do you take requests?
Of course! If we know the song you're requesting we're happy to play it for you on the spot. If you know you want to hear a song that's not in our usual repertoire, just let us know ahead of time and we can learn and arrange a special version for you.
-I'm not sure what kind of music is appropriate for my event. Can you help?
We're happy to help you pick the perfect band. Give us a call, we'll ask you some questions that will help us determine what could be the best fit for you, your guests and your specific event.
-How do I decide on the size of the band?
Our bands play in configuration ranging from solo to 12 pieces. We're happy to make some suggestions, but here are some things to consider to help you decide:
- Do you want background music that's easy to have a conversation over, upbeat cocktail music, full on dance set, etc.
- How much space will be available for the band?
- How big is the room they'll be playing?
- How many guests do you have?
-Do you play for wedding ceremonies?
Yes! We have many options that are perfect for traditional and non-traditional repertoire. Classical Harp, String Quartet, Folk duo, solo piano, and many others.
-Do you travel?
Yes we do! We've done destination weddings and events all over the US and around the Globe.
-Do you provide your own sound system?
Yes! However, for very large events, or when a band needs to take a plane to get there, we may require some additional equipment. We can provide a stage plot/ input list, and help coordinate with local sound companies.
-I'm not sure if I have space for a band, how much space do you require?
We've played every kind of space - from Manhattan apartment to huge outdoor festivals.
To give you an idea, for a 5 piece band we normally ask for a flat surface 8'X12' in size, but can squeeze in even tighter if need be.
-Can we meet you before our event?
Certainly! We often meet with clients over coffee or Skype to answer any questions you might have.
