What are your rates?
$250 per hour with a 3 hour minimum performance time on Saturdays.
No additional charge for load in, set up, or tear down.
How do you know what type of music to play at each different event?
Throughout our time working together, we will discuss your must plays & do not plays. Based on our conversations, I'll come to your event prepared with an educated idea regarding what kind of music will go over well with your crowd and adjust appropriately as the night goes on.
Do you play edited versions of songs?
Always! Unless otherwise requested.
Whats your personal music style?
Of course, every event is different and the type of music I'll play for each event is custom towards my clients wants & needs. But if we're talking my own personal taste, here are some of my current and all-time favorites: New Found Glory, Death Cab For Cutie, Portugal. The Man, Hall and Oates, Tears for Fears, Boston, The Cure, One Direction, Kanye West, Migos, Playboi Carti...
Do you travel outside of Chicago?
Absolutely -- we can chat about travel fee's if this is applicable to you.
Do you provide lighting?
To really put my focus towards playing music and creating a great vibe for your party, I do not provide lighting. However, I'm happy to share some local favorite options so you can coordinate this separately!
What is the process like working with you?
Simple. When you're putting together an event, the music part should be a super fun and easy process. We will sit down and chat about your event plans and I'll learn more about you and your musical preferences. I have an easy questionnaire for you to fill out to give me details on your do not plays/must plays/expected crowd vibe/etc.
Where do you hold meetings with your clients?
Typically at my home studio in Bucktown --parking is free and easily accessible by CTA. We can have a drink and keep it casual. I'm happy to meet elsewhere more convenient to you if you prefer!
Can you provide music and microphones for our ceremony?
You bet. Let's chat through these details for applicable fees/etc.
How do we lock you in?
Sign the contract and send along your 50% retainer -- and we're good to go!
