The Private Extras

As you plan your affair there are two important segments of the evening/afternoon that must be considered. First, there is the ceremony if you are planning a wedding. Secondly, there is the cocktail hour which is traditionally part of all affairs. Both parts of the event are usually accompanied by music,  which we can provide you with the very best that Boston has to offer.

We can customize music for both ceremony & cocktails to accommodate your individual preferences and tastes and we would be happy to help you with your choices both in repertoire and instrumentation.

  • Piano, flute, trumpet, and violin chamber ensemble’s

Please let us know if we can help you secure entertainers for these important parts of your party.


The contract accurately specifies the time frame for which the musician(s) are hired. Generally, a wedding ceremony that commences at 6:00 PM will be preceded by approximately 30 minutes of prelude music, performed to entertain your guests as they arrive and take their seats.

Wedding ceremonies and cocktail hours are usually treated as additional services and require an addendum to the primary contract. Once you have booked the band, we will discuss ceremony/cocktail hour options as well as available repertoire. We can also make suggestions for your review. You need to select three pieces of music: the bridal party processional, the bridal processional, and the recessional. Once we know your musical preferences, we can suggest suitable instrumentation options.

The musical ensemble is responsible for selecting the prelude music for the wedding ceremony. However, if you are a member of the wedding party, you may not be able to enjoy the full prelude. We offer a diverse range of prelude pieces to cater to the musical preferences of your guests and keep them entertained.

Having said this, we are happy to honor requests.
