Booking

Since 1998, I have been booking bands for weddings, private parties, bar/bat mitzvah's, concerts, festivals, and much more.
  • I specialize in providing music for all aspects of a wedding including Jack and Jill, Rehearsal Dinner, Ceremony, Cocktail Hour, Dinner, Reception and Soiree.  
  • Genres include Classical, Celtic, Country/Bluegrass, Klezmer, Dixieland, Jazz, World Beat/Dance, Top 40, Soul, Rock, Reggae/Ska, Latin, and even DJs!
  • Rates are generally $150/hour per musician.  Most of the groups are available as a duo, trio, quartet or larger.  Depending on the distance and whether or not there's a sound system required, there is an additional travel and expenses fee.
