In the last year: Lois provided the music for Kirkbrae Country Club's wedding showcase. She and her musicians played for weddings at Providence Public Library, Aldrich Mansion, Castle Hill, The Chanler, Oceancliff, The Hope Club, Hyatt Regency Newport, Kay Chapel, The Eisenhower House, Kirkbrae Country Club, Newport Vineyards, Omni Providence, Warwick Country Club, Conanicut Yacht Club, Newport Marriott, and many other venues.
Lois and her musicians provide music for wedding ceremonies, cocktail hours, receptions, rehearsal dinners, and post-wedding affairs. Great care is taken to tailor the musical selections to fit the needs and tastes of each bride and groom, with special sensitivity to appropriate volume levels.
During peak times, there is a two-hour minimum.
For a small event, Lois recommends either solo piano or a piano-string bass duo. Trios, quartets, quintets, and full bands or orchestras are great for larger occasions. Her classical quartet includes piano, string bass, violin, and flute. Trumpet players and ceremony vocalists are available. The jazz quartet consists of piano, bass, percussion, and sax/flute/clarinet. Her dance band is 5 - 8 musicians, including guitar/male vocals and often female vocals.
Other instruments are available for you: guitar, harp, steel drums, marimba & harmonica. Two high-end portable digital pianos are available for sites where there is no piano. Grand piano rentals can be arranged.
Piano Meditations, gentle music for healing & relaxation, is a CD of Lois's original music, available for bridal gifts or tokens of appreciation with a specially custom-designed CD jacket.
