Customers rated this pro highly for professionalism, work quality, and punctuality.
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
While each opportunity is different, we set a 2 hour-minimum for shows. Since each show needs time to set up on-the-spot (drums, keyboards, amplifiers, PA/mixers, microphones, etc), we would like for the experience to be worth the musicians' and clients' travel and work time, and have found that the 2 hour minimum works best. For a typical 3-hour show, we tend to work within the $100-150/hr price range, maxing out at 5 hours total; however, please contact us directly (chat, email, or phone) to negotiate the rate that works best with your budget and event type.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Begin here on Thumbtack with a response to our quote, and follow-up either via email at the address or phone number included in the quote, and we will work to craft a contract that meets your special needs.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Many of our musicians hold Bachelor and even Master of Arts degrees in Music Performance and Music Education. We have many years' experience in performing jazz, blues, pop, and other genres, and some of our artists are actually seasoned professionals in other areas such as technology, management, science, and law.
