We will gladly communicate with your venue and
event coordinator to make certain all details
are finalized well in advance.
We've planned wedding music almost overnight
but we aim to have all of the details finalized months
ahead of every performance.
When Where What How Much How Long
We have performed for audiences as large as several thousand and have the experience and expertise to
plan for nearly any type of performance.
String instruments are often over a century old and easily
damaged by direct sunlight, excessive heat or cold, and
any sort of precipitation.
If performing outdoors a tent is usually required and setting up in front of a building, bushes, or trees, and upwind of the audience
with the sun and wind to the musicians' backs can help our
sound project and make it easier to read our music.

Travel Time & Costs
A great deal of preparation goes into every performance.
We aim to have every detail finalized months in advance.
As you fill out your event form it is very helpful to be
as thorough and detailed as possible.
Please include stage dimensions in your event form or at least confirm with your wedding coordinator and venue that plenty of space will be left for the band to load in, setup, perform, and teardown. We will gladly contact them ourselves at your request.
When creating a performance estimate we need to know that our sound system, lights, musicians, instruments, stands, and other equipment will fit. Empty cases for all of our gear might not make the most ideal backdrop for your wedding photos and videos so we try
to cover every possible detail well before the performance date.
Setup & Teardown
For large and amplified ensembles please allow at least
four hours of setup time for our crew of roadies. This time includes our load in, setup, and soundcheck.
Teardown can usually be completed in under three hours. Please make certain to coordinate with your venue to ensure you have it booked for enough time to include setup and teardown
Our truck and trailer are used for most band configurations
and require a parking and unloading space at least
50' long and over 8' high.
To complete the soundcheck each amplified instrument will be checked independently and with each other. The full band will then soundcheck a few songs at performance volume to set levels and properly adjust microphones, instruments, monitors, and other items.
The following image depicts a rough layout of one of our larger Grand Orchestra options. We've squeezed onto tighter stages but more space is always desirable. Our smaller ensembles require
much less floor space.
