A Letter From The Musician's Lips

Dear Bride and Groom,
I am the owner of an entertainment company that provides music for special occasions, namely weddings. For nearly two decades, I have had the pleasure of sharing people’s most treasured moments. I have cried, laughed and cheered those special couples onto their new life together. I have taken a pail full of sand out of my socks after performing “Love is a Many Splendored Thing” on the beach. I have ruined a pair of my best silk shoes walking through a horse and cow pasture on my way to the altar. Could I tell you stories! But that will have to wait. I thought it was most urgent that I take to the pen after having recently received a telephone call from a young lady who wanted to know how many musicians were in a string quartet! And so, here is my heart-to-head letter to you so that you’ll have just a little more information about... the music.

Where do I start?
This is one of the most important days of your life: one that you will remember for a long time to come. A recommendation is always the best place to start. Ask newly married co-workers, friends and family members whom they used and if they were happy with the services given. Call your local musicians’ union. There are free referral services at the union, not only for the client, but for the member as well. Having a union musician playing means that they are professionals making their living as a musician and not sidelining as a plumber during the day. Contact your local symphony orchestra. Many times there are already groups formed and you might be able to catch one of their performances.

Find a university or music school in your neighborhood. When you speak with a secretary in the music office, ask for a graduate student. They will post a help wanted message on the job board and you’ll have students who are interested calling. You can ask for an instructor as well. Ask your caterer or church music director. They will often have musician’s names and telephone numbers on hand. The last resort might be to use the yellow pages of your telephone directory under musicians.
