Frequently Asked Questions
How far in advance should I book live music?
This is dependent upon your event and the type of music that you’re interested in booking. Typically, a few months out should be fine. But, if you are planning for a the summer or holiday season you may want to consider months in advance in order to have the best chances of availability.
What is a standard amount of time to have live music at my event?
This depends on the type of event. For concerts or festivals, a standard performance time is 60-90 minutes. For private or corporate events, Jay can play anywhere from 1-3 hours. More than 3-4 hours of performance time can be possible but is strenuous, so if you do book live music for that amount of time, he will require adequate breaks.
What should I expect to pay for a live performance?
A typical wedding will cost between $1,100 – $2,500. The cost variation is dependent upon the amount of equipment needed to provide ample sound & lighting, and travel time to and from the event, and how many hours Jay will be on location. Extensive travel is an option and cost is determined on a case by case basis. Keep in mind that for a 2-3 hour show there is actually 6-8 hours of time invested in travel, setup, rehearsal, performance, and breakdown.
What is included in the cost of a performance?

- Production and sound equipment

- Travel time to and from event
- Set up and break down of equipment

What happens if the event is cancelled
If you need to cancel it is not a problem. One would hope that you would provide as much notice as possible so that Jay could potentially book another event, but it is understood that sometimes things happen that can force a cancellation.
