Contact Information

Musicians should be booked six months to one year prior to an event to ensure availability. However, we welcome all interested clients - whether they call one day, one week or one year before a function! We provide free, unlimited phone consultation to all of our clients and prospective clients.

'Local' is within 30 miles of central Monmouth county whereas 'regional' is outside of that but within New Jersey. Additional fees may apply if travel outside of New Jersey is necessary.

For wedding ceremonies, we begin playing as soon as guests begin arriving - usually 20-30 minutes prior to the start of the service. We also continue playing after the recessional until all of the guests have exited.

Accommodations can be made for special requests with respective rate adjustments.


Once Booked...

We dress in formal, all-black attire unless otherwise requested by the client.

The client is to provide a minimum space of 7' by 7' in which to set up and four armless chairs. For dimly lit events we need to be within 10 feet of an electrical outlet to use supplemental lighting which we provide.

Outdoor events require additional facilities - a shaded area to avoid direct sun or complete coverage during any sort of precipitation. Our concern, first and foremost, is for the music - since extreme weather conditions can greatly damage the instruments these requirements are steadfast.

Upon the rare occurrence of a member becoming unavailable for an event, their substitute will be a fellow musician with whom we have worked significantly and who knows our repertoire just as thoroughly as the other members.

It is not necessary for an in-person meeting with the client to choose the music, however we do offer a video (VCR tape) of the Four Occasions performing several pieces so you can familiarize yourself with the music and the musicians.
