Due to a number of factors, it has been necessary to lift my prices as of 23/05/21. This is my first price rise in over 10 years. Existing bookings remain unchanged of course.

My fees are based upon the time required at the venue (excluding getting ready and packing up) and include any amount of piping within that time. They are also inclusive of travelling costs for within the Melbourne Metropolitan Area.
  • Up to 15 minutes: $160
  • Up to 30 minutes: $180
  • Up to 1 hour: $210
  • Up to 2 hours: $250
  • Over 2 hours: please contact me for a quote.
My 15 minute option is useful for short engagements such as Birthdays or Retirements or playing at the start only of a Wedding or Funeral. If I was needed only at the end of a Wedding or Funeral, I would still need to arrive ahead of time, which would be a 30 minute charge.

If I am required to travel outside the Melbourne Metropolitan Area, there may be a travelling surcharge - please contact me for a quote.

Please note there is a $10 surcharge for CBD Parking.
