Q: Is there anywhere I can see you perform live before booking? 

 

A: Absolutely! We do a number of public performances in a variety of cities for this reason. You can 

find out where we're playing next on the "shows" page. 

 

 

Q: How much do you charge for a performance? 

 

A: Rates will vary depending on the expectations of the event. Please send us an email or a phone call with the type of event, location of the venue, and length of performance and we'll get back to you with

a free quote. 

 

 

Q: Okay, I'd like to book you guys. What's the next step? 

 

A: To secure the date, we'll need a deposit and contract. The deposit can be paid online via paypal or e-tranfer, with a cheque in the mail, or cash in person. The contract will be sent to you over email, and you can either email your signed copy back, send it through the mail, or sign it in person. Once we've received those two things, we're all set!
