Why should I book live music for my event?

Live music is a great way to add an extra special touch to any event or function. There is nothing quite like a live cello playing musician to bring an event to life. A great musician responds to the mood to deliver great entertainment.

How long do cellists take to set-up for my event?

A 10-piece function band, with DJ service, may take up to 90 minutes or more. The time needed is to position the musicians in the performance area, prepare the equipment and test their sound.

If this is a special event with particular timings, they may need to arrive earlier. It is best to agree with the classical cellist about the time of arrival. This will allow them to prepare for your event. This should be before your guests or patrons arrive.
