Wedding and Special Event FAQ

Thank you for considering Mighty Fine Shindig to help celebrate your big day! We understand the importance of the event you are planning for you and your loved ones. We hope these Frequently Asked Questions will provide you with a head start, but please contact us with any additional questions you might have.


What are your rates and how much do you charge?

Our basic package is $250/hour and includes an acoustic guitarist with a male and female vocalist. We do not have an hourly minimum. You can book us for 1 hour or 6 hours. The choice is yours!


Are you willing to learn songs that are important to us?

Of course! We love learning new music and going the extra mile to make your event special. With advanced notice we are happy to learn any songs that are not already on our extensive list of songs.


Are you willing to travel? If so, how far?

We travel throughout the Metro Chicagoland area. We are happy to travel beyond that. Please note, travel costs beyond two hours will be an additional fee.


What do you typically wear?

We match our attire to the theme of your event. We are equally comfortable at a black-tie event or a beachside bar-be-que. Have a unique themed event that requires a special wardrobe? No problem, we are happy to accommodate any wardrobe requests you may have.


How many musicians, vocalists are in the band? Are you able to add members order to accommodate our requests?

Absolutely! Our basic package includes one acoustic guitarist and one female vocalist. We can add vocalists and/or musicians at an additional hourly rate of $125/hour for each additional member.


How do we book you? And how much advance notice is needed?

To secure a date, a 25% down payment is required. The remaining balance would be due the day of the event. We are often booked several weeks in advance. A minimum advance notice of two weeks is appreciated, but not required.


What is your cancellation policy?

The 25% deposit is non-refundable. Events cancelled less than 2 weeks from the date of the event are responsible for paying 50% of the total contract amount. If a cancellation request is received more than 2 weeks form the date of the event, you will not be required to pay the remaining balance of your contact.
