WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT: Our typical process is to find out what works best your event. We usually choose our own repertoire based of the style of the event, but we are more than happy to work with you if you have specific requests from our repertoire. For custom arrangements of songs/pieces, we may request an additional fee.
Once we decide to work together, The Bassett Bros. will send you our performance contract. We give you as much information as possible about our end of the performance and we welcome your input.
As far as the day of the event is concerned, we like to have the following information:
- Where we are playing (address and directions to performance area).
- Is the event indoors or outdoors? Our instruments do not like direct sunlight.
- The parking situation
- Distance to the nearest electrical outlet
- Day of event contact individual cell phone number
We generally arrive at least 30 minutes prior to the beginning of the event, unless we discuss otherwise.
After the completion of the performance, we collect our fee, and we're on our way! If you have any questions about this process, feel free to reach out to us.
