FAQs

1. Do you play outdoors?

Yes, we love to play outdoor weddings and other events. We do however, have to protect the instruments form the weather. Here are our guidlines:

  1. String instruments must be protected from direct sunlight by being under a canopy or other shade.
  2. Extremes of hot and cold weather are very harmful to string instruments so the temperature must be between 56 and 93 degrees F.
  3. No rain or other moisture can touch the instruments

If you require a conopy ask about our canopy rental.

2. Do you attend the rehearsal?

We usually do not attend the rehearsal. We performed hundrends of weddings and find that the information we need is acquired during the consultation. We are happy to send one of our representatives to the rehearasal but this requires a fee.

3. Do you play other songs than those on the list?

Yes, the duo can play nearly any song that has been arranged for duo. They can also play from most piano arangments. We will be happy to advice you as to the playability of specific songs.
