Cocktail Hour Muscians

Can anyone recommend a company and tell me how expensive this would be?  We hadn't built this into our budget.  Also, can you hire them for just an hour or do they have a minimum?TIA!Tyler

    Honestly? Don't, doll. Everybody's going to be munching on fancy snacks and talking about the ceremony. What I am going to do is have my parents mingle with the guests while I take pictures all the around my venue. It's the hosts' moment, you know? And we do want music - so we're plugging in an ipod. Saves money!Of course if you feel that you must, a guitarist is always a nice touch, and you can hire a guitar teacher from a local music academy.

    I really want a string ensemble, but my budget conscious option is www.cellomoore.com. I saw him recently and he plays the electric cello (sounds like a regular cello) to backtrack music. He comes with Bose sound equipment that really carries. He is very good and I even bought a CD. He is $300 for 1/2 hour before ceremony, for the ceremony & the cocktail hour.

    We hired a guitar duo for the ceremony and the cocktail hour. If you hire a soloist its even cheaper... Check out Tropicsentertainment.com to hear samples or Marischen Music for samples and contact them for prices!
