Prelude and postlude music is incorporated into your wedding ceremony package. We allow a minimum of 15 minutes for prelude unless otherwise notated. Please let us know your wishes of the beginning and ending times on your contract.
musicians will need armless chairs with enough playing space (approx. 10 feet by 10 feet for a quartet), electricity for music stand lights/amplification (if needed), and cover for outdoor events.
Acoustical stringed instruments are very sensitive to extreme environmental conditions. In order to provide you with the best quality music and to protect our valuable instruments, we have included some outdoor playing guidelines.
Maximum/minimum temperature: 95/63, no direct sunlight, and/or precipitation of any kind. Due to the fact that mother nature is unpredictable, it is necessary that a canopy or tent with optional sides be available for all outdoor events. If you are planning your event outdoors, please note this on the contract.
All engagements begin with a one hour minimum. Additional time requirements may apply for events outside a 60 mile radius.
We cannot guarantee that the musicians will be able to play beyond the contracted time. If there is a possibility that you will require the musicians longer than the contracted time, we suggest that you note this request on the contract. If requested, we will try to accommodate the extension of time at a rate of $50.00 per 1/2 hour for each musician. Payment for overtime is due in cash prior to the conclusion of the time noted on your contract.
After the first contracted hour, the ensemble requires a 15 minute break per additional hour. If the contracted time ends with a 1/2 hour interval then a 10 minute break will be taken. Whenever possible, our breaks will be arranged to coincide with speeches, toasts and travel time from one venue to another. In order to accommodate you with the most continuous music, we suggest these details to be discussed in advance.
continuous music is available for an additional fee of $35.00 per musician per hour. Please note this request on your contract.
For (2) two hour engagements and longer, hors d’Oeuvres/light meals should be offered to the musicians during their scheduled break. For engagements with continuous music, meals can be provided at the end.
Travel expenses may apply for engagements outside of a 30 mile radius from Wilmington, DE and will be determined prior to the confirmation of the contract.
If the contract is canceled prior to eight weeks before the contracted date, a 20% of your retainer will be refunded. After the eight week deadline there will be no refund.
