When will the musicians arrive on the day?

We always arrive 30 minutes before we are contracted to start.  This allows us time to find your coordinator if you have one, and talk through the ceremony with your officiant, set up our instruments and music stands, and tune.

As a rule, we do not charge for this time; we charge from when we start playing to when we stop playing.  In very rare cases where we must arrive and set up more than 30 minutes before we are to start, we will charge a set-up fee.  This is extremely unusual though.

If we are accompanying a singer of your choosing, we arrive 30 minutes before we are scheduled to start rehearsing with your singer. Read more about accompanying singers here.
