Additional Answers & Advice:
What do you charge?
Our total fee depends on several factors, such as the components you choose (reception, cocktail hour, ceremony), the number of musicians, the amount of time that we spend at your event, and the amount of time that we spend traveling to your event. To discuss options and get a quote for your event, please don’t hesitate to email Tori at email@example.com.
How do you choose what songs to play?
Our song choices depend on you and your preferences. From low-key jazz or folk during dinner or cocktail hour to high energy rock and pop during your reception, we aim to create the atmosphere you and your guests will enjoy for the duration of your event. Song selection is one of the most important decisions that we make, and so we spend a great deal of time choosing and learning some of the best songs of all time.

What is the band’s availability, and where can I see you play?
We primarily play private events, so seeing us live can be tricky. We recommend checking out our live performance videos. If we are playing a public event, it will be on our facebook page and website. We book many months in advance, so we recommend getting in touch with us as soon as you set a date.
I’m a musician as well. Can I perform a special song with the band at my event?
Sure! We will work with you to rehearse as necessary ahead of your event.

You guys allowed us to do so much customization to really make our day special and unique to us. The reception music was amazing, you’re all so talented and professional.– Andy and Tabitha
Simply outstanding! After researching and talking with numerous bands in Maine, we chose Every Other Sunday to perform the dinner music and dance music at our wedding. We truly could not have been more satisfied, and representative guests comments were “what a great band!”, “they were frickin awesome!”, “what a wonderful choice for your entertainment!”.– Alison and Ron
