- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
In order to create a custom quote for your event, I factor in the following things: - Number of musicians needed - Length of time the band will play - Travel time from San Francisco Bay Area - Is sound equipment & set - up required? - Will we be providing extras? (Dance instructors, decor, themed costumes?)
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I typically message with a customer or speak with them over the phone to find out what type of flavor they want the music to bring to their event, to confirm the logistical details and to determine if my group is a good fit for them. I then work with them to create a custom playlist for their event, so they have a really clear idea of the music we will provide. I require a 20% deposit for event more than 2 months in advance, to secure the date.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have had more than 10 years of vocal training, and have been singing professionally in bands since 2006. I have been playing the guitar for over a decade, and I also play banjo, mandolin and piano. In addition to my vocal training, I have a bachelors degree in Theater Performance, so I'm very comfortable onstage! Having been in the music world for as long as I have, I am blessed to work with a wide circle of professional musicians, so I am easily able to provide everything from dance bands with drum kit, electric guitar and bass, to acoustic formations with guitar, banjo and fiddle. Wondering if I know a steel guitar, ukelele or accordion player? I do, just ask! I'm also a songwriter, so I'm available to craft a song for your special occasion.
