For Weddings: "Ceremony only" rate is a flat fee rather than for an exact length of time since it can be hard to predict how long it will actually last and if it will start on time. Some types of ceremonies may have an extra fee for the extra time, particularly for Catholic full mass weddings and Indian weddings. This flat rate includes prelude music starting 30 minutes beforehand, processionals, interlude if needed (unity candle, communion, etc), recessional, and then one more song while guests exit their chairs. You may want additional music for the receiving line, photos, cocktail hour, dinner or the whole reception. In that case, choose a multiple hour package that will include your ceremony, considering your prelude start time. Prices can be broken down to the quarter-hour to line up with your timeline.
For All Events:
All Saturday events JUNE-SEPTEMBER have a 2-hour minimum.
A fee of $50-100 will be added for SPECIAL MUSIC REQUESTS which are outside our repertoire. We are happy to email you our song lists in advance for you to preview what is already in our repertoire.
A TRAVEL FEE may apply. Please include your event location in your inquiry.
The quartet offers AMPLIFICATION for an additional $100. This includes the option of amplifying the instruments and/or a mic for your wedding officiant. Instrument volume is not usually a problem for a ceremony when guests are quieter, but often amplification is needed for a large crowd reception as guests get louder and louder. Additionally, we can provide a wireless lapel mic, speaker, set up and sound check for your officiant. It's a shame when your family and friends cannot hear your beautiful wedding ceremony! Often a loud voice is not enough. This must be arranged for in advance as equipment is not always available. These services are often needed when by the water or where there is a lot of ambient noise. Electrical outlets must be available. The duo actually must be amplified to balance the cello and guitar, therefore there is no fee to amplify the bossa nova duo and an outlet must be available.
