Charges may incur for fuel, but we always advise clients of this before a booking is made.
It is unusual for us to cover more than one wedding per day, although occasionally we are asked to play for a ceremony only for one client and drinks reception only for another client on the same day, in nearby locations.
We work as a string quartet and also have a list of trusted professional musicians whom we may call upon, should one of us be indisposed.
We are not an “act” as such because the length of our performance is determined by our clients’ requirements. However, in the case of a ceremony followed by a drinks reception, we generally play continuously for up to two hours so that our performance is a seamless one. In the case of a booking longer than two hours, we will need a short break.
We perform regularly together and rehearse new pieces of music not familiar to us, before any event.
We charge per length of event, with a minimum of one hour’s playing. We have a price list which sets out our charges clearly.
We are able to perform longer than the agreed time, providing all the players are able to stay fo r the extra period of time. Occasionally ceremonies start late, due to traffic and other unforeseen circumstances, but generally we are happy to accommodate last minute changes.
We negotiate with the clients or their representatives to agree an extra fee.
We require a deposit on booking, followed by the balance four weeks before the event. All payments are made via BACS.
Yes, we have full Public Liability up to £5,000,000 for our group.
