We thought you’d might like to know…

We collect a 20% non-refundable deposit to secure your date.  See our Covid policy below!  The balance payment is due the week of your event, prior to the event.  You’ll also get a digital contract to sign.  As your event date approaches, we’ll partner with you to help you fill out our song selection form.

We collect a 20% non-refundable deposit to secure your date.  However if you have to reschedule your event due to covid, we will roll over your deposit towards any future date free of charge.  There is a clause in our contract that outlines this.

Yes, we can play outdoor events with a few caveats: our wooden instruments are very sensitive to cold temperatures, so we can’t play outside if it’s under 50 degrees. In the event of rain (even the slightest drizzle), we either need to be COMPLETELY sheltered. Also for summer weddings we need to be in the shade, either natural shade under a tree or something, or an umbrella.

Yes, absolutely! We’ve played at hundreds of weddings and can help you curate the playlist. Just let us know what type of vibe you’re going for and we can use our experience to pick songs that we know work best.

Our musicians play acoustically, without amplification. We find that for ceremonies we typically don’t need to be amplified. Our sound will carry, and everyone will be able to hear us as you walk down the aisle. If you’re expecting over 100 guests at cocktail hour, sometimes the venue or the DJ is able to set up a microphone in front of the quartet to help amplify the sound.

Yes, absolutely! We just have to make sure our parts are in the same key that the singer sings in. We do charge a small fee for a brief rehearsal the day of the event.

We have an extensive network of subs that we’ve worked with for years. Many of us went to school together, so in the event that one or more musicians can’t attend for whatever reason we will find an excellent replacement!

What our clients have said about us

“They were on time, and absolutely incredible musicians. Ross Tesorio was our contact and handled arrangements perfectly. Our large wedding gathering sought me out to compliment them time and time again. Definitely gave the reception the class we were looking for. 100 stars.”

“I would highly recommend Cloud Gate! They were incredibly easy to work with. In terms of the quality of the music, Cloud Gate are excellent musicians, a head above what I've heard at any other wedding (and I've been to a lot!) They really created the perfect, romantic atmosphere during the ceremony and cocktail hour. All my friends commented on the beautiful music -- truly unforgettable.”
