We are a consortium of like-minded free-lance musicians. We form a duo, trio, quartet, etc. to suit your occasion. Engage a cellist, a pianist (as a duo, "a capriccio") We can add harp, nyckelharpa, . . . "Broceliande" is a well-established Celtic Trio and we are adding more and more partners for classic string and mixed ensembles, folksy bands with singer-songwriters, accompanists, studio session players, try us! . . .
Playing in the theatre pit (TheatreWorks and sometimes San Jose and WBO Opera productions...); in the recording studios around the Bay Area; at your cousin's wedding - or yours!.. Senior residences, Living Rooms, bed-sides, schools, libraries, . . . . Wherever fine acoustic live music is called for . . .
Tell us about your musical prowess and vision for musical endeavors . . . . Let's Talk . . . .
Feel Free to Sign Up to find out more about our comings and goings.... We'd love to see you out there... Maybe even provide Music for your next soiree or serenade you and friends... You may just stumble across one of our Cage-Free Folks in your travels...
As soon as we design one ;*).... We will post testimonials and other tidbits soon!
mellow, acoustic background music for your event....
Starting at $200/first hour
light classical to contemporary... standards.
If you need a longer session, the hourly can be adjusted - e.g., the second hour might go to $150, the third hour to an additional $100, etc.... Special Order Music requests may involve quite a lot of preparation, which we'd need to account for... More than an hour travel one way, might need to be compensated, etc.... We promise you'll be glad you enlisted an experienced Cage-Free Musician to perfectly complement your event.
We can offer classical/standard duos, trios and string quartets, or work with you to form your fantasy ensemble (say, Oboe, Nyckelharpa and Banjo!?)... In most cases - we do need at the very least 30 days advance notice and a deposit to book a group . . . . Let's Talk!
Starting at $600/first hour
This Category includes our Stable of Cage-Free Players (Broceliande, West Side Strings or "A Capriccio").... Ready to go at the drop of a hat, but DO give us ample time to fit you into our schedules ;*) We will be adding other ready-to-ride groups, as we go....
If we need to reach outside our stable of players - we still have a super talent pool just a phone call away, so standard fees may apply, but we'd need to see about special cases and possibly charge accordingly. The given prices here are more guidelines to give you a ballpark estimate.... Again, custom repertoire requiring arrangements and/or extra rehearsing will need to be compensated.... We may compile an exhaustive price table, but every instance is different and we like to remain flexible..
