String Duo or Trio for Wedding

We are looking for string duo or trio to play for our Wedding in Minneapolis on Saturday, June 21, 2014.

We would like the group to play for our very brief ceremony, background music during the cocktail hour, possibly during dinner as well. We'd really like to put an Americana/Folky twist to the usual and haven't had a lot of luck finding professional groups in the Twin Cities willing to put a modern spin on things.


Soloist or Duo to perform at Art Supply Store

Utrecht Art Supplies is looking for a musician to perform at our store on Thursday, February 13th, afternoon or evening.

This is in conjunction to our once a semester Madness day when we have live artists and musicians to make the day special. It may be a single performer or it could be a duo or more. We are not set on any kind of music but want the musician to be a U of M music major. In the past, we have had guitarists but as stated we are wide open.

The performer(s) will get a $100 gift card. If more than one, the card will be split by the number of performers. In addition, we will publicize the performers on our website, blog and with an email blast as well as signage in the store announcing the time and the performer.

Please give me a call in the next day or so if you are interested.
