From elegant weddings to raucous Bar Mitzvahs, The Music Dept serves up a stunning variety of music and performances for any and every occasion.
We deliver service which anticipates the needs of our clients and music which elevates the experience of their guests. We can provide virtually any style of music as well as dancers and other entertainers.
The primary goal of our initial consultation is to learn about your needs and determine whether or not we will be able to meet and exceed your entertainment expectations. Once we’ve discussed the details of your event we present a quotation. The quotation includes the type of ensemble, playing time, repertoire, and performance fee. We often present multiple options if a client is still deciding between various ensembles.
All of our bookings include a two-page contract outlining our agreement and the details of the event. After the signing of the contract and receipt of deposit we remain in close contact as the event planning continues. We correspond with any other event planners, venues, or vendors throughout the process to make sure that the event is a complete success.
Our consistent, versatile and self-contained live bands are perfect for all sorts of corporate events. We can also compose custom songs and presentations tailored to your brand or message.
Live Entertainment is absolutely essential for a successful non-profit event. We’re happy to offer a reduced rate to our non-profit clients holding fundraisers, galas, or public events designed to boost awareness around their mission.
When it comes to your Mitzfah we’ve got it all: Bands for Cocktail Hour, Party Bands (who can play a raucous Horah), Klezmer Bands, DJs, Strolling Magicians, and Dance Motivators!
Whether its elegant music for a seated dinner, a surprise accapella serenade at work, or a re-creation of your first dance we love to perform for anniversaries.
Families come together to celebrate a big birthday, and we believe our music and entertainment brings them a little closer. We have ballon artists to fascinate a five-year old and an accordionist to play “Fascination Waltz” at your Dad’s 85th.
The Holidays are a great time to be a musician! Its a joy to launch into any of the favorites and watch people light up as they recognize the tune. Nearly all of our bands have an extensive repertoire of holiday music.
We’ve played all sorts of events and we’re always open to something new. Let us know about your special event.
How It Works
We begin by learning about the details of your event. Some people know right away what kind of group they’re interested in booking, but we are also glad to offer complimentary consultation on the different instruments and ensembles as well as our repertoire. The venue, number of guests, and your description of the ideal music and mood are all helpful factors in determining the ideal band and program for your event.
2. Quote & Contract
Based on our conversation we will generate a quote for your event. Oftentimes we will offer two or three different options based on different ensembles or performance times. We are happy to discuss this over the phone or through email.
We always provide our clients with a contract. One of the best things about the contract is that it sets out all of the core details of the event and makes sure that everyone has a mutual understanding of the booking. We accept checks and credit cards for the deposit required to complete the booking.
3. Final Preparations
It is essential to stay in close contact with the event coordinator in the days or weeks leading up the event. Throughout this time we review any event itineraries as well as offering unlimited email and phone correspondence to sort through any final details.
