kind of music do you play for the ceremony and cocktail hour?
We have played
traditional ceremony music (i.e. " Here Comes The
Bride","There Goes The Bride") as well as our own
choices, from J. S. Bachís, "Jesu Joy of Manís
Desiring", Vivaldiís "Four Seasons", Handelís
"Water Music" and Purcellís "Trumpet Voluntary".
If you are at a loss, weíll choose and youíll be extremely happy -
100% of our past clients are proof.
For the cocktail
hour, we usually play more lively classical tunes and some South
American arrangements that we love. Itís a nice mix and a perfect
segue into the reception.
Will a flute and guitar duo be heard
with 200 guests at our party?
We have played our
music in settings from a private romantic dinner for two overlooking the
59th Street Bridge on Sutton Place to over 250 people in soho
loft parties, weddings, and special events. The classical guitar can be
easily picked up with a battery-operated amp the size of a breadbox, no
problem for the flute to adjust!
What do you wear?
Formal - (black tie)-
tuxedo and long black dress
Informal - Suit and
au naturel - better
call someone else! (this was, in fact, a genuine request, of which we
make no judgment, just not in our repertoire!)
What do you charge?
fee charged is dependent upon location, amount of time, and other
specifics. We would have to have all this information before quoting the
client a fee. I will say that we have competitive rates, and have been
told so, and are NOT farming out work to other musicians.
What you see/hear is
what you get! We are NOT AGENTS. Our duo is a family business. If you
are seriously considering our music, kindly fill out the request form in
this website, and we will be happy to oblige.
Do you ask for a deposit? When must
we pay the fee?
Yes, we do ask for a
deposit to hold your date at the time of contract. It usually ranges
from 50-$100.00 depending on the contract amount. The balance is payable
on the day of the event.
Why should we choose your duo over
any other group?
Once we have talked
over the details personally, we have over a 90% success rate for hire.
We are honest, friendly, flexible musicians who like the jobs we accept
to turn out as well and better, as you have imagined it would. If we
feel our music is NOT suitable for your event we will tell you.
Good luck in your search,
hope we can be of service to you for your special eventÖcall Kathy or
