What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
We prefer to treat each client as an individual. There are many factors that go into providing an accurate quote for each event.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Typically, customers reach out to us with the date of their event, the location of the venue, and the number of guests they're expecting. From there -- let us do all of the "heavy lifting". We'll ask you a series of questions to get a feel for what you're looking for and will suggest the perfect music for your party, as well as the number of musicians you'll want to achieve that -- trio, quartet or more, depending on your needs.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
We're all professionally trained musicians who have recorded and toured with some of the biggest names in show business for years.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
All musicians have been professionally trained, working musicians their entire lives. You won't find anyone on our staff that has a "side job".
What types of customers have you worked with?
We've performed for everyone from Oscar winner actor/director Clint Eastwood, Kim Kardashian, Arnold Schwarzenegger, author Stephen King, to Grammy superstar Carole King. Our events range from big name clients such as Chrysler Motors, The Getty Center and Universal Studios, to simple backyard cocktail parties.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Give the band your vision -- what you're hoping they music will sound like. Gauge whether they're good listeners and are reacting to your needs. Most importantly - be sure that they are professionals. Once you've got that established - trust the band! This isn't our first time at the rodeo! Seasoned professionals know what they're doing and make it look easy -- and you look great!
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Ask about experience and whether this is a "side job".
