What are you rates? I have a PDF with a few different wedding packages. If the event does not seem to fit any of those packages please feel free to contact me and we can discuss a better option.
How far do you travel? Currently I do not have a limit on distance of travel, but for further venues there is an additional travel fee.
Do you perform live or make CDs to be played? I will only perform live.
What music options are available? I have played weddings ranging from traditional, to Harry Potter themed. No music is out of the questions. I encourage couples to be creative and make their wedding personal to them. I have no extra fees for specialty music. I want to make sure you have the music you want at your event.
Where can we hear you play? There are multiple videos and audio samples on this site, but I try to meet with every client at my studio in Waterford, MI so they can hear music live/in person.
Do you have any reviews from past clients? I have a testimonials page on my site where you can read reviews, and am 5-star rated on WeddingWire as well as TheKnot.
Hey, didn't you used to DJ? Yes, I used to DJ as well as play for ceremonies. I still do DJ from time to time but I have decided to focus my time more on violin playing as that is what my passion truly is.
What is the best way of getting ahold of you? The contact form on my website, or direct email is the best way to get ahold of me.
What equipment do you bring? For ceremonies where I play the violin I will be my electric and acoustic violin (1 to use depending on what we choose and another as a backup incase something fails to work properly). I will also have my own music stand, amplification equipment and if need be a special battery powered speakers. I can also bring a handheld microphone with a stand for the officiant upon request.
Are lapel microphones available? No. The reason is mainly that with that sort of equipment there is someone that needs to attach them to anyone who would need it and control the sound which is usually the same time I would normally be playing for the ceremony (Before and after).
Is tipping required? No. Although any tips are appreciated I will not ask for it and I will never put out a tip jar at your wedding.
Please do not hesitate to ask any questions you have. After performing at weddings for over a decade I would be happy to help clear up any questions you might have relating to music or just other parts of the wedding day.
