FAQs

Q: What is the ‘Classy Grass’ style of music?

‘Classy Grass’ is a unique style of playing that combines The Tradition of Folk, The Discipline of Classical, The Soul of Blues and the Heart of Bluegrass.  This original style was developed over more than 20 years of performing by Bethany Willis, Musical Director and violin/ fiddle player for Bend Event Music.  By hiring Bethany Willis, or any combination of musicians playing her ‘Classy Grass’ style, you can guarantee that your event will have an original, classy and upbeat feel to whatever songs are played.

Q:  How far in advance should I book my event/musicians?
It doesn’t matter if you’re booking musicians for a Wedding, Corporate Event, Funeral or Private Party – we recommend checking availability and booking your musicians as soon as you set the date and time of your event.  Our musicians and bands are sometimes booked a year in advance, so  contact us as soon as possible so we can reserve the musicians you need.

Q:   How do I know that my musicians and event date are booked?

A contract signed & received by both parties along with a non-refundable 25% deposit of your total event package guarantees that your event is booked and the date is held.  Remember, simply filling out the ‘Request a Quote’ page does not put you under any obligation to book that event, nor does it reserve or guarantee the services of Bend Event Music that you requested until both the contract and deposit have been received. Please do not send an advance payment until Bend Event Music has confirmed their availability for your date and you have then signed and returned your contract with your deposit or payment in full.

 Q:  Am I required to tip the musicians?
Although tipping is not required, our musicians would certainly appreciate it.
