Guitar Harp Duo - Is this a normal cost?

Recommended Posts

Hi-

 

My wedding coordinator at Dreams is recommending a guitar harp duo for the ceremony music and coctail hour.

 

I love the idea of it think it will be cute.

 

My concern is that she quote me a price of $350 per hour.

 

Is this a normal price?

 

Are there other similar vendors you recommend getting quoted from?

 

I just want to try to make sure I am not getting ripped off.

 

Thanks!

Hi Erika,

 

I paid $350/hr for a Mexican trio (harp, guitar and bass?-can't remember the 2rd instrument). We were quoted prices of $300-$400 for musicians ranging from a solo guitarist to trio's. Seems like that might be the going rate.

I'm being charged $450 USD for 45 minutes for a violinist... They originally quoted me $650 and I said "forget it" and they came back with this price instead.

I am using the harp trio and they are amazing! They auditioned for me and then the following night they played a coctail party I attended. They were lovely! I believe we are being charged $280 an hour for the 3 people. I don't have any communication with them as my chef booked it for us. I found most musicians to be about $300 an hour as we are using a mariachi band of 10 which is $484/hour, 2 spanish guitarists (one is $275 and one is $350), and the harp trio.

 

Good Luck!
