First, check the online calander to see if your date is still available. Then contact Corey via email/phone to double check availability. Second, fill out a contract and submit via email/ fax/ US mail. Include deposit with the contract. Deposits can be made with a check, visa or mastercard. Once Corey receives your contract and deposit, the contract is signed and a copy mailed to you. Your date is then updated on the website and time posted on the calendar.
Client Name: include both bride/groom names. Address: please list an address for either bride/groom, but choose the address you
will be located at up to the date of event (we have, in the past, been
unable to reach clients because they move without notifying us). Please
fill in two phone numbers and your email address. (You could provide us with your cell
phone number in case of a move). Mileage Cost: if your event is outside the Portland-metro area, there will be a
40¢/mile charge for travel. Make sure the address of
your event is entered, then click "calculate distance." The distance from Duo Con Brio to
your event will be calculated, and the mileage charge will be entered in the contract. Click
the "close" button in the window to go back to your contract.
It is good to have reviewed the demo, come up with songs you like, and songs you dislike. In addition, you should make decisions about what music you would like to have us perform for the enterance of bridesmaids, processional, ceremony music, and recessional.
The final payment will be due no later than two weeks before the event. Invoices are emailed on the 20th of the month prior to your event. Under special cases (non-profit businesses, for profit businesses) one payment may be made on the day of the event.
Most of our instruments are very valuable and cost a lot to repair. Both sun and rain will ruin the varnish and cause instruments to crack. The shade or cover is to protect the instrument and to keep them in good working order.
