Are there any additional costs involved for weddings?
There are no additional costs for learning new music or for consultation. Prices are as quoted. Mileage may be charged depending on the amount of travel involved.
What other events do you perform at and can a quote be provided for a booking that is not a wedding?
Joanne has performed at corporate events, funerals, christening parties, coffee shops, and even house parties as a sing-a-long event. There are no restrictions on the events/functions that Joanne can perform at. Please use the contact form so that a tailored quote can be provided. The fee will depend on length of set, mileage, date/time of event and whether a PA (sound system) is required.
How long is your set?
As long as required. The standard is normally approximately 2 hours with a break in between. It is necessary to take a break to ensure a consistent level of performance.
How long do you take to set up?
With a full PA, stands, microphone etc Joanne can be ready in approximately 40 minutes allowing for sound check. Set up time is often much less for church services.
Are you willing to travel outside Northern Ireland?
Joanne is willing to travel further a field if required. However travel/accommodation costs will be taken into account when providing a quote.
Is a deposit required?
A fifty per cent deposit is required to secure a booking for weddings. Bookings can be secured up to eighteen months in advance of the relevant date. The deposit is refundable if 4 weeks notice is given in advance of cancellation. A small deposit may be required for other events, and this can be discussed.
What happens next?
After availability and price have been discussed and agreed, a booking form will be sent to be returned with your deposit. Song choices/music can be agreed at any time, with sufficient notice given to learn new material. The balance can be paid on the day of the performance, or in advance.
