*Cancellation must be given two weeks in advance. Failure to notify us of cancellation in writing will result in the obligation on the part of the purchaser to honor the signed contract.

*Outdoor weddings are taken on a weather-permitting basis. We cannot play in the rain as our instruments would suffer unreasonable damage. Outdoor weddings need to have a rain site planned in case of inclement weather. Another consideration is that we must have adequate protection from direct sunlight when playing outdoors. Most parks have a gazebo or an arbor. We need to position ourselves under the shade of the gazebo/arbor. Again, this is to protect our valuable instruments.

*For services other than Wedding Ceremonies, the musicians will take a ten minute break each hour. These breaks may be taken all at once. Breaks will be reasonably timed in order to work well with the flow of the event.
