Musicians for Sept. fundraiser

My name is Erin with Groundwork Events. I am looking for a soloist, duo, trio, or quartet to play background music at a fundraiser / awards ceremony for a local non profit.

The event is Thursday, Sept 21st, ~5-8:30pm, at the Monona Terrace in Madison. We’d like background music while people are walking around for the first ~1.5 hours and then walk on / off music when they are coming on stage to receive their awards. We do not have equipment such as amps/microphones, so if you are not doing acoustic you’d have to bring your own.

This is the first time I’ve done this, so I’m open to any ideas that would make this event great! You will be compensated for your time.

Please let me know if you are interested by emailing me at or calling 608-501-8272.

Seek brass musicians to play a pop song during a wedding procession

I am interested in hiring several brass musicians for a short gig at my wedding reception. Details below, but please let me know if there are any questions.

I am looking for a couple of musicians to play during our grand march song, “Love is all you need” similar to the scene from the movie Love Actually. I would like to surprise my soon-to-be husband, since that is one of his favorite movies. I have a link to the movie clip and a link to the actual song our DJ will play below (see #6).

I was thinking one of each trumpet, saxophone, trombone player; however, I am open to suggestions on what would sound best.

The date is Saturday, August 26th, 2017.

Location is Madison Masonic Center, 301 Wisconsin Ave., Madison, WI.

Time: I plan to start the grand march at 5:50pm and would like the musicians to arrive around 5:30 so they can find a table in the reception hall. The grand march should end at 6:00pm, so the musicians will only be needed for approximately 30 min.

I would plan to pay each musician. I don’t know what is a reasonable offer for the type of service I am requesting.
