PRICING AND QUOTES: Many factors can affect our fee. The number of musicians hired, length of performance, traveling distance, sound equipment needs, and special accommodations all play a role. We try to be fair, normally charging a simple flat fee for all events which are in short driving distance (under 2 hours), and require a 1-3 hour performance slot... Though we are flexible with performance times as needed for events.
The songs and influences listed below are only a short list... it's impossible to list them all. We know hundreds of tunes!!! Please visit our website for listings by genre and style.
