"Tony and Kristin
added tremendously to making our wedding perfect, from their lovely
classical pieces during the ceremony to their joyful rhythmic tunes at
the reception. They created the perfect atmosphere for a wonderful and
memorable day. We got countless comments from the guests on what a great
band it was!"

fees: the bottom
line is that we would like to work with you whatever your finances are.
Fixing a fee for a musical performance is not an exact science, but
after years of performance negotiations, we have some rough guidelines
for you to consider.
We have a sliding scale on the honor system. Our base rate
for an affair of up to 3 hours is:
|$125 per person
||Lowest fee, very modest affair, minimal requirements, special
circumstances. Three hours maximum.
|$250 per person
||Average affair, average fee.
|$300 per person
||Reasonably generous affair and, uh, "comfortable"
clients. If you are spending generously on location, caterer,
cake, dress, flowers, etc., and/or if you are using a wedding
planner, this will be our fee.
Here are possible extra fees:
||Out of town, we ask $15 per person per hour of traveling.
||We charge $50 to bring, set up, and operate the P.A.
(necessary for most large affairs).
||If your event will require our presence for more than 3-1/2
hours, we will charge an additional $50 per musician per hour.
||If your event is far from our homes and the music will last
late into the night, we need accommodations, or we will
charge for accommodations.
OTHER QUESTIONS WE HAVE BEEN ASKED:
|Why do you need shelter at outdoor
||Our wooden instruments are costly and cannot take rain or
extreme sunlight or heat.
|Do the musicians take breaks?
||Performing is tiring. We take a 7-10 minute break every hour.
The breaks can coincide with toasts, speeches, etc.
|Will you play special requests?
||Yes, we are glad to attempt to perform special requests (given
our particular combination of instruments) Give us
plenty of advance notice and a recording and/or sheet music.
|Will you meet with us personally
to discuss the event? Will you come to our rehearsal?
||We can have a preliminary thirty minute meeting with you at no
charge. If more time is required there may be a fee. You
don't need one of us to come to your wedding rehearsal; we have
performed for many weddings and can follow directions on the
spot (be sure to have somebody in charge of cuing us). If you
really want one of us to attend the rehearsal, we can do so for
