7] Can we request extra songs not on the music list?

Yes! We have many titles in our library but if yours is not listed, we will do our best to find it for you. If there is a significant fee involved in purchasing the music, (over $10), we will need to bill you for that. If the request is not written for strings, we can have it arranged professionally. Fees for this service vary so we will always check with you first before proceeding.

8] What are your performance and travel fees?

Pricing is based upon the length and type of event and the type of ensemble you select. For specific rate information, please contact us. If your event is held anywhere from Nipomo to Cambria or north to Paso Robles, there is no additional charge for travel. We can quote you a mileage fee for events outside these areas.
