F
requently asked questions:

How many musicians are in the band?
The size of the band depends on a few variables including, budget, style of music and the atmosphere you would like to create. A reception with dancing usually consists of 4 to 5-piece ensemble. This could include Krista and a guitarist, bassist, drummer and pianist. Adding a saxophone or full horn section is also an option. Krista also provides duos and trios for smaller spaces and cocktail receptions. The band can perform instrumental jazz standards and easy listening music while your guests arrive or during the reception dinner and cocktails.

​How long will you play?
The band usually works in a four-hour block, performing 45 minutes to one hour sets. During our breaks, we play pre-recorded dance favorites to keep the party going. Breaks are typically 20 minutes. If we are addiing cocktail music this typically is a 30-45 minute set in a 1 hour block.

When do you need to set-up?
We typically begin setting up 2 hours prior to when your guests are scheduled to arrive. 

Will you learn our special songs?
Yes, the band will learn up to two songs for your special dances. Special requests must be submitted at least one month prior to your wedding date, should we need to prepare for any new material. 

Can we use your system for speeches and announcements?
Of course. Krista always provides an additional microphone and stand for your emcee and guest speakers. Krista is also happy to introduce the bridal party or any other announcements through the reception as required.

How much do you charge?
Our prices depend on a few variables such as, the number of musicians, time frame we are on site, location of the venue and sound/staging requirements. You'll find Krista’s fees are reasonable and within the standard rates for musicians with this level of experience.

How do I secure the band for our date?
Once a client has decided to book with Krista Blondin, a basic contract must be signed within 14 days to hold your date. A 50% deposit will also be required.
