Additional musician(s) also available for ceremony, cocktail, or reception - this works nice if you'd like an elegant classical ceremony and then add more lively duet or trio for cocktail hour. Violin, flute, sax, cello....
For instance, a guitar & latin percussion duo for a more lively but classy cocktail hour/reception, minimum additional $150 and up. Great option if you want more pop and latin music, some funk, all mixed up or at your discretion. If you want to have a dance party, but not a full band, I can make that happen with a drummer and even click on a funky dance playlist for the last climactic 30min of the formal celebration.
