Q: How many hours does a typical wedding band perform?
A: Your typical wedding reception band or orchestra performance time is usually like this: If a wedding, and you have a ceremony a musician or musicians should play for 1/2 hour of guest arrivals and then 1-3 musicians could perform for 1 hour or 1.5 hour cocktails and then your standard party, event time slot for weddings is usually 4 hours, and some are extended to a 5th hour (but the 5th hour is usually considered overtime.
New York Wedding Orchestras Bands
Q: What are typical charges for musical groups and wedding bands in the NY-Metro area?
A: Competitive rates for high quality bands and orchestras start at around $5000 of-course the sky is the limite, bands can get pretty expensive, depending on how famous they are and how big a following they have. A band that charges less than $800 per musician ($200 per hour per musician) stands a chance of losing their performers to higher bidders before your event.
New York Wedding Bands Q: Will you take song requests for us?
A: The high level of professionalism of our bands is demonstrated in their ability to take song requests and learn up to three new songs for each and every event. All of our set and rehearsed bands practice and learn new songs for each and every event that we perform at. IGMC Bands will learn up to three new songs for each party (3 songs not on their existing song list.)

Q: How does band pricing work? Why are the prices so different from one day to another and one month to another? A: A band that charges $10,000 on a prime time Saturday evening  in June or October, might agree to perform for your affair for $5000. provided that it is a Friday evening or early afternoon on a Saturday or for a Sunday Brunch or Lunch event. You can save 25-30% off your music budget simply by moving your event date to off season or off-peak night or afternoon. January and February are really good months to get great deals. Remember to ask your facility the same questions about pricing and seasonal rates.

Another variable in determining the price of a band will be the number of inquiries that they are getting for a date or day. SAVE YOUR MONEY! BE SMART! Pick a less expensive day or date if you are on a budget.

Q: Can you play CD's or Ipods during the event as well?
A: All IGMC Groups and BANDS are BAND/DJ combos with a full DJ Capability. You get the best of all worlds. Our bands  can play either CD's or ipods whenever it is necessary. IGMC Bands frequently have live performances using one or two musicians in the band to provide 100% continuous live performance.
