THE EXTRAS FAQ’S:
Why Does The Contract Say, “Ceremony 6-7 PM” When The Ceremony Doesn’t Start Until
6:30 PM?

The contract reflects the actual time-period for which the musician(s) are engaged.
Typically, a wedding ceremony that begins at say 6:00 PM will be preceded by approximately
one half hour of prelude music to entertain your guests as they arrive and are seated.

I’ve Booked The Band, Now What About The Ceremony & Cocktail Hour?

Wedding ceremonies & cocktail hours are generally handled as “incidentals” with
an addendum to the primary contract. Once the band has been secured we will send
a ceremony package containing a CD with available repertoire as well as suggestions
for your review. There are three pieces of music, which you will need to choose:
The bridal party processional, the bridal processional and the recessional. Once
we have determined your musical selections, we can then recommend some instrumentation
options.

Do I Get To Choose The Prelude Music?

Generally the ensemble chooses the music. In any case, since you are a member of
the wedding party you will not hear the majority of the prelude music. As a rule,
we select from a broad range of prelude pieces in order to entertain your guests
with some musical variety.

Having said this, we are happy to honor requests.
