OUR BOOKING PROCESS

CONSULTATION BY EMAIL OR PHONE

The goal of the consultation is to establish a comfortable relationship and to find out what type of event you are having, your budget, your vision and then determining the best style of music that we can organize for your special occasion.

MUSIC SAMPLING

The goal is for you to actively listen to samples of music played by the artists that fit the style of music you envision for your event. Please visit the Music section of our web site to listen to audio samples or view video demos of our musicians.

AVAILABILITY

Once you have chosen the style of music and/or the artists that you would like to have play at your event, we determine if they are available. If they are not, we will provide you with more choices to choose from.

CUSTOMIZATION

This step is only necessary if you would like to choose your own personalized wedding ceremony music. We can easily guide you through this process via email or on the phone. We recommend that you leave the majority of the song selections to the professionals. It is best if you choose only your own processionals, signing and recessional selections.

From a gospel choir to a tuba to a New Orleans styled marching band to an opera singer to having her string quartet learn an obscure Bruce Springsteen ballad: Musical Occasions has gone above and beyond to help make my client’s visions come to life.
