No, there is no additional fee for set-up. Set-up is included in our rate. We arrive 45 minutes to 1 hour prior to our start time to set-up.

 

What form of payment do you accept?

Payments can be made in cash, check, or credit card.

Deposit (half of the amount) is due at signing. The remaining balance is due two weeks prior to your event date.

 

Can we request music?

Yes, of course! There is no charge for sheet music that can be found for free. If we can find music to play from, then the music cost is typically $10-20 per song.  If we cannot play off the music score due to the arrangement lacking essential elements for the group combination, then the music will need to get arranged. The cost to arrange music is $50-$175 per song arrangement.

 

Can we choose our musicians from your team?

You can always make a request, but we cannot guarantee that those particular musicians will be available. To reserve a specific musician may incur additional fees.

 

Why is "Bellarosa" one word versus two words "Bella Rosa"?

"Bellarosa" is actually the last name of a violin-maker who resides in Rome, Italy. Ivy has a small collection of instruments made by this luthier. Since it is a last name, we decided to honor the maker's last name by keeping it one word.
