Paying for Your Event - It's not just the music!

Paying for an event need not be onerous.  This is normally done in two parts. Firstly, once you have decided on the entertainment you require a deposit of between a third of the cost is taken and the balance is paid two weeks before the event .  These two payments can be by cheque card or cash.

Special requirements such as songs that are of special importance can be discussed at the time of booking and don't forget we can also help with venues and all event issues even tables and flowers.

 

It's Great To Talk

If you are planning an event or want to make plans for music in your school or college you can speak person to person with the director who will help you with your requirements .  Every detail will be noted and will be carried out exactly as you ask.  This personal consultation can be by phone or in person
