Rates & Fees

Our rates are based on a number of factors, including but not limited to the total length of time booked, the number of musicians, the location of the event, so please contact us and we’d be happy to provide you with a quote or a customized price list.

Standard Fees:

Accompanying a singer of your choosing:
– You must book an extra 30 minutes for rehearsal on the day of the event, and an arranging fee will apply.   Read more about accompanying singers.

Arranging fee for special request songs:
– $50 for groups with guitar as one of the instruments.
– $100 for groups *without* guitar.

Travel:

If your location is more than 20 miles from downtown Portland, our travel fee is $1 per mile per musician, one way.
If your location is over 60 miles from Portland, we also must add $20 per hour per musician (also one way) to the travel fee. We will use Google Maps’ travel time estimations and round up to the next half hour.

Examples:
If your location is 30 miles from downtown, and your selected group is a duo, travel will be a flat $60.
If your location is 130 miles away, and Google Maps says the travel time is 2 hours and 40 minutes, we will round this up to 3 hours and the travel fee will be $130 plus $20×3=$60 for a total of $190 per musician, or $280 total.

We never charge for set-up time nor for consultation.
