Look them over and see if there's  something you think might be just right for your event.  In almost every category we have several great choices. If you see something that interests you, call or email us...no obligation...and we'll suggest names of specific acts and their prices and provide links for you to click on to hear/see them...and go from there.  If you don't see anything on the list that looks just right...contact us and let us talk about it.  We'll find just the right thing!

We really do make it easy for the Buyer.  When we get a call to come up with ideas for music for a particular date, we try to get as much info from the Buyer as possible...just what they're looking for.  We then contact several acts we feel are just right for the situation...most often acts we've booked many times before. We check on the acts' availabilities, ask them to "hold" the date, confirm their pricing, then email all the info to the Buyer including links to access each act's website or Youtube info. Our response to your request for info is usually made on the same day or by the following day.

The Buyer can look at and listen to the info on those acts...how they look, how they sound, their songlists, where they've played in the past...and can choose one he/she thinks is best. If more choices are needed, we'll supply more ideas. The process always results in the Buyer getting exactly the right music!
