Live-Musik für Ihre Weihnachtsfeier - Wiesbaden, Frankfurt, Rheingau

The costs vary depending on how many musicians are booked, how long they should play for and, in some cases (e.g. church weddings), how many pieces you would like them to play. When booked for several hours of background music, musicians play in 45-minute sets.

As a general rule, the longer a musician plays, the cheaper the hourly rate.

  • QUARTET for a wedding (entrance music, 1-2 musical interludes, exit music, ca. 1 hour) = from 1.150 € (incl. VAT)
