Complete the booking form and submit, allowing approximately 3-5 business days for review. Once the completed request is reviewed, allow a minimum lead time of two weeks.

Our organization may accept requests for shows as a means to provide an operating budget for the organization. We perform for weddings, birthday parties and reunions, cultural celebrations, festivals, schools, churches, independent/assisted living facilities, pubs/restaurants, civic groups, and more.  Naturally, our heaviest performance season is around St. Patrick’s Day in March.
