Frequently Asked Questions
The following questions represent the most common queries we get regarding bookings for social functions
Are you available for a certain date?
Our availability will be changing all the time as new bookings are taken. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or ring 01275 852568 to check availability for your date.
What do you charge?

At what points do you play at a wedding?
We are happy to discuss this with you and can tailor playing times to your wishes. We most frequently play for some or all of the following:
- Before the ceremony while guests arrive
- During the ceremony (arrival of the Bride, exit of the Bride and Bridegroom and more often than not during the signing of the register – we are sometimes asked to play another feature piece during the service that may have special significance to the bride and groom)
- After the ceremony to entertain guests during pre-reception drinks whilst photographs are being taken
- During the wedding breakfast, usually up until the start of the speeches.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or ring 01275 852568 to seek further information.
What kind of repertoire do you offer?
We offer a vast selection of classical and light repertoire including jazz, swing, ragtime, popular songs, show tunes and folk music arrangements. Please refer to our
repertoire page for more details on the pieces we play.
Do you take special requests?
If you would like a special piece played that is not on our repertoire list we are very happy to provide an arrangement for a small fee. We would ask that good notice is given however.
If guests have requests on the day for pieces in our existing repertoire then we are more than happy to accommodate these. Please email email@example.com or ring 01275 852568 for further details or to discuss any special requirements.
Do you offer a Duo/Trio option?
Yes, other combinations can be negotiated. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or ring 01275 852568 to discuss further.
Where does the name Lochrian come from?
The word ‘locrian’ refers to a mode or scale in music but as some of the members in the ensemble have Scottish connections we decided to add the ‘h’ to ‘locrian’ to give the name a Scottish twist!
