What kind of events do you do?
We have performed at a wide variety of events and are always open to new experiences. Past performances include wedding receptions, wedding ceremonies, cocktail hours, dinners, corporate events, birthdays, anniversary parties, restaurants, fundraisers, and holiday parties.
What style of music do you play?
We play many styles of music including jazz, latin and pop. For wedding ceremonies, Carrie is happy to play classical/traditional or non-traditional piano music of your choice. For cocktail hours and receptions, we provide jazz and light pop style instrumental duo music with some vocals music to create a classy, lounge-like atmosphere. We can accommodate requests for specific pieces if they are given prior to the event day.
Does my venue have to have a piano? Does it have to be tuned?
No, the venue does not need to have its own piano as we can provide our own keyboard and sound system if needed.
Can you perform outside?
Yes, our setup is flexible indoors and outdoors. All we require for an outdoor setup is a power source/outlet within 100 feet of the performance area, and a hard, flat surface to set up on.
How far do you travel?
We are based in Manistee, Michigan, but we are open to travelling to your special event!
