For wedding ceremony/party, we charge strictly by time.

~~~~~  Price example for String Quartet  ~~~ 

  1. the first hour --- $480.oo
  2. additional 15min. --- $80.oo
  3. if there is any waiting time, we consider it as 'performing time'.  e.g., we perform for 30 min. ceremony, there is a half hour wait to start one hour party music, the charge will be 2 hours.  We also provide nice interlude music.
  4. If there is any events that cause delay, please calculate the total performing time from 'the begin time' on contract to 'the end time' we actually stop playing.   The same fee/time will be charged, $80.oo for 15 min. delay.
  5. $100.oo non-refundable deposit is required to confirm the contract.  The total cost should be paid by the end of event, and deposit will be subtracted from the total.
  6. Cancellation must be made by phone call 5 days prior to the contracted event.  If cancellation is  made within 24 hours we regrettably charge 50% of the total cost of performing (exclude travel cost and deposit).  
  7. If the events are outdoor, we will bring outdoor instruments, however, shaded area for entire group is still necessity.

travel cost ~~~

  1. free of charge within Hampton Roads
  2. $4.oo/mile (total mileage) farther than 35 miles from center of Chesapeake (Greenbrier area)

We will work on your requests as much as possible for free of charge. Ex.,you have a special song you’d like us to play, I will arrange it and one arrangement is free of charge. Please let us know as soon as once contract is made.

Payment: we accept ACH bank transfer, cash or check.  (returned check requires the actual cost)
