Booking Info

We thought you’d might like to know…

What is your booking process?

We collect a 20% non-refundable deposit to secure your date.  See our Covid policy below!  The balance payment is due the week of your event, prior to the event.  You’ll also get a digital contract to sign.  As your event date approaches, we’ll partner with you to help you fill out our song selection form.

What is your cancellation policy, especially with Covid?

We collect a 20% non-refundable deposit to secure your date.  However if you have to reschedule your event due to covid, we will roll over your deposit towards any future date free of charge.  There is a clause in our contract that outlines this.

My event is outside, do you play outdoor events?

Yes, we can play outdoor events with a few caveats: our wooden instruments are very sensitive to cold temperatures, so we can’t play outside if it’s under 50 degrees.  In the event of rain (even the slightest drizzle), we either need to be COMPLETELY sheltered.  Also for summer weddings we need to be in the shade, either natural shade under a tree or something, or an umbrella.

Do you have any song suggestions for our ceremony?

Yes, absolutely!  We’ve played at hundreds of weddings and can help you curate the playlist.  Just let us know what type of vibe you’re going for and we can use our experience to pick songs that we know work best.

Do you bring your own sound system?

Our musicians play acoustically, without amplification.  We find that for ceremonies we typically don’t need to be amplified.  Our sound will carry, and everyone will be able to hear us as you walk down the aisle.  If you’re expecting over 100 guests at cocktail hour, sometimes the venue or the DJ is able to set up a microphone in front of the quartet to help amplify the sound.

My friend wants to sing a song / my brother wants to play guitar with you, is that possible?

Yes, absolutely!  We just have to make sure our parts are in the same key that the singer sings in.  We do charge a small fee for a brief rehearsal the day of the event.

What if one of your musicians gets sick, or can't make it.. what happens?

We have an extensive network of subs that we’ve worked with for years.  Many of us went to school together, so in the event that one or more musicians can’t attend for whatever reason we will find an excellent replacement!

What our clients have said about us

“So many people complemented the music after the ceremony. The music was perfectly poignant, and filled the church with such love and happiness! Thank you Kennedy String Quartet for bringing our vision to life!”

Gillian

“The Kennedy String Quartet did a wonderful job! They were on time and set up just as discussed. Their playing was beautiful and created the perfect atmosphere which definitely contributed to making the overall event a success. I would definitely hire them again!”

Taylor

“They did a wonderful job! We had barely rehearsed so we were a little uncoordinated but they improvised very well. All of our guests loved them at the cocktail hour, too. They even learned Semi-Charmed Life by Third Eye Blind for us as the exit song. Would definitely recommend.”
