Wedding & Private Event FAQ's

In order to help you decide on a band for your reception, here are answers to some of our most frequently asked questions.

Will you provide musicians for our ceremony and/or cocktail hour?

Yes. We offer one or more of our musicians to perform for your ceremony and/or cocktail hour, performing the musical pieces of your choice including Jazz, Classical and various ethnic styles. We also provide the services of DJ's, String Quartets, and other ensembles that we coordinate to perform with us during your event.

What is the cost of your band?

Our prices start at $1,200.00 and go to $6,000. We offer band configurations from 3 to 9 pieces. For a specific quote covering the musicians required for your event, please contact us to discuss in detail. We guarantee that we can give you a great band combination at an affordable price.

How many musicians are in the band?

Our band varies in size from a 3-piece to an 9-piece band. The size of the band you hire should fit the type of function you are having, the kind of music you would like the band to play, the number of invited guests and the size of the room where your affair will take place. We take all this into consideration before recommending the size of the band.

Will the band learn special song requests?

We are happy to accommodate requests for special music. The band will learn 2-3 special songs for your event, depending on complexity and how much time we are given to prepare your songs properly. We usually request a copy on CD or MP3 2-3 weeks prior to the day of your event.

How long does the band perform for and how many breaks are included?

A typical wedding runs 4 hours. Ceremony and/or cocktail hour music can also be provided. During a 4 hour event we will perform 4 sets of music, each being approximately 45-50 minutes long, and in turn will take 3 breaks being 10-15 minutes long, always coordinated with the serving of your food courses. Background music from our CD collection will be played during breaks at no additional cost or you may choose to hire our musicians on a continuous music basis which means that during our breaks there will always be two or three members who will be performing throughout the 4 hour reception.

Will the band perform at a volume that is comfortable for me and for my guests?

Circle Music utilizes state of the art sound equipment that digitally captures the sound characteristics of your room, and the bandleader is actively monitoring this system to create a comfortable balance for all of your guests. As the dance music sets evolve during the event, we are always available to execute your request to adjust the volume of the band.

Do we have input into what songs will be played by your band?

Circle Music will provide you with a questionnaire approximately 6-8 weeks before your wedding day. This package includes a song list of our current material. We ask that you review this list and check off the songs that you like and cross out any selections you don't want played. On the day of your wedding we will work from the list you have created. We are also extremely capable of getting a feel for what your guests are responding to, and perform music we are sure will pack your dance floor.
