FAQ, Booking and General Policy

Yes! We are here to help you find the right musician for your event. With Ocdamia Music Group, you can choose from over 100 musicians. For weddings and events, we recommend that you decide based on your guest count. Here’s our rule of thumb: for events with less than 100 guests- solo musician, 150 guests- duo, 200 guests-trio, and 200 and more guests- quartet. You can also check out our website to know more about our artists.

Live music is a big part of events but some cities impose noise restrictions. Often, event venues have a noise ordinance that is implemented after 10 pm. Our musicians and DJs are familiar with these rules and comply with them.

All our artists and musicians have a collection of performance videos that you can view on our youtube channel. To see their videos, click HERE. We try to post videos that capture a musician’s performance at an event so our clients can have an idea of how they would perform at their own event without having to see them perform live.

We accommodate out-of-state performances and bookings. For these types of arrangements we do require that the client provides airfare and accommodation for our musicians and artists. Meals must also be provided per diem.

We understand that at times, the unexpected happens. Our policy on cancellations are written below:

  • For cancellations 30 days before the event, you will receive a 100% refund of the deposit amount.
  • For cancellations less than 30 days before the event, the deposit is non-refundable.

Please Provide Shade/Umbrella

  • We require a shade/umbrella for our musicians, instruments, and audio equipment. This is due to the extreme sensitivity of musical instruments to changes in temperature and exposure to sunlight and humidity. In some cases exposure to elements may lead to irreparable damage to the instruments.

Please Prepare a Covered/Dry Location in Case of Rain

  • We require a covered/dry location for our musicians, instruments, and audio equipment in case of rain. Exposure to water or humidity is damaging to our musical instruments and audio equipment. In some cases exposure to elements may lead to irreparable damage to the instruments. 
 Please Provide Heater
  • We love playing outdoors but in lower temperatures please provide a heater for our musicians. Our musicians remain outdoors for more than an hour with an additional hour to set up before the appointment. The heater will keep them warm before and during their performance.
