What kind of events do you play at?
Anything that would benefit from the special atmosphere that live music can create: weddings, birthday celebrations, drinks receptions, awards ceremonies…
How much will it cost?
Our standard fee is £450, which covers up to two hours’ playing. This can cover two sections, e.g. wedding ceremony and drinks reception, or just one longer one (with breaks). We will charge extra for travel beyond 50 miles from London, and for longer bookings. Discounts may be available at quieter times and for shorter sets. Contact us for your personalised quote.
What music will you play?
This is completely up to you. You can be specific about pieces of music or just give us an idea of the kind of atmosphere you’d like to create. We have a wide repertoire so can create different playlists according to your requirements. Go traditional with Pachelbel’s Canon, create an elegant ambience with some Viennese waltzes, give people a smile with Hopelessly Devoted to You, or keep it smooth with some Frank Sinatra numbers – the choice is yours! We can help you select the right songs for your wedding, or create the perfect playlist for your reception, so just let us know what you have in mind.
Can you arrange music for me?
Yes! If you don’t see the piece you want on our list, please ask and we’ll arrange it for you for a small fee. We like a challenge so don’t be shy – we’ve done it all, from 80s power ballads to trip-hop classics!
Will your music be suitable for my venue?
We have played at lots of different venues, from intimate wedding ceremonies to large corporate marquees, so we are confident that we can adapt to almost any venue. The trio does not take up a lot of space (around 2mx2m is ideal but we can work with less if necessary) and brings all its own equipment. All we need from you is some armless chairs, although we can live without these for wedding ceremonies. In general the trio does not use or need amplification but we will work with a venue’s sound team if this is felt to be necessary. The trio will work outside during summer months but ask that some shade is available to protect our instruments and stop the sun shining in our eyes while we play (or, more realistically, shelter us from the wind….)
What will you wear?
We love to dress up so we will always be smartly presented. We can wear traditional black dresses, sparkly tops, elegant red dresses, long formal purple dresses, informal tea dresses.… Let us know if you have a theme, style or colour scheme and we’ll do our best to fit in.
What areas do you cover?
The trio is based in London but travels all over the country. As a general guide we will work anywhere up to around 100 miles from London. This covers the counties of Bedfordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Hampshire, Hertfordshire, Kent, Middlesex, Northants, Oxfordshire, Surrey, Sussex, Warwickshire and Wiltshire – as well as London itself of course!
How and when should I book?
We take event bookings up to 18 months ahead but can also accommodate shorter notice, even last-minute, bookings if we are available. Send us an email, fill in our contact form or call one of us to enquire about availability and make your booking. Once you’ve decided to go ahead we will send out a booking form and ask for a small deposit to hold your date. Around 6 weeks ahead we will be in contact to finalise details and music. The balance of payment will be due in the week of the event.
