3. Is there an overtime charge?

4. Can I see a video of one of their performances?

5. Are they performing at a bridal showcase where I can see them live?

6. Does the band specialize in a particular type of music?

7. How many musicians do they recommend for the event?

8. Who will act as the emcee?

9. Do they have a specific routine or order of events that they recommend for the reception?

10. Can I give them a playlist and a "Do Not Play" list?
