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. 

Yes, we will play background music along with the instrumental. For classical tunes, we will use piano tracks. For pop and most popular tunes, we will use full backing tracks. The duo will play the melody and create a unique arrangement.

We can play background music while walking, but the price will be different. We need to memorize the sheet music and coordinate with the A/V company for sound and wireless mic. This will be discussed during the booking process.

The Gentlemen will wear a tux and the ladies will wear a gown. If you have a special attire request please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate it.
