Customizing the Performance
MUSIC SELECTIONS: We are happy to help you design a playlist of all of your favorite music!
Please visit our Repertoire page for our most current library: Repertoire
We can accommodate special requests outside of our repertoire list. Classical genre special requests will be no extra charge. Other genres (Pop/Rock/Top40 etc) can be written for an arrangement fee starting at $100 per song.
All musical selections must be finalized at least 2 weeks before an event.
COLLABORATIONS: We often accompany vocalists/other soloists. Please inquire for more information.
SOUND AMPLIFICATION: We will coordinate our sound rider with your AV company for no extra charge. If you wish to rent equipment from PCS, we can discuss a separate agreement.
DRESS: Musicians typically wear formal white or black, however our clients have the option to choose dress and color. We have a fashion stylist on our roster that will help create the best look for your event!
ARRIVAL: Musicians arrive 30 minutes prior to start time for set up. Earlier arrival may be arranged for an additional fee.
SET UP: We require arm-less chairs to be provided in the location(s) that we are performing. The ideal space is approximately 10 x 10 square feet with level flooring. Musicians must be sheltered from direct sunlight or rain as our instruments are extremely valuable and susceptible to damage when exposed to certain climatic conditions.
PARKING: Convenient parking must be provided by the client.
INSURANCE: PCS holds full liability insurance ($1 million). We will add your venue as additional insured and send a copy of the policy for an additional fee of $50. Most venues now require such insurance, so it is important to verify that all your vendors do indeed have insurance.
CONTRACT: We require a signed contract and 50% deposit to secure the date. The remaining balance is due one week before the event. We accept Checks, Electronic Transfer and Credit Cards.
OVERTIME: Overtime will be billed $100/musician for every 30 minute intervals.
CANCELLATION: 30 days or more before an event: PCS will keep the 50% deposit but there are no additional fees. 29 days or less before an event, the Purchaser will be responsible for the entire amount.
