Services & Fees

The Homegoing Brass Band will lead cemetery processions and/or play for indoor memorial/religious services. We are available on short notice and in any weather. Fees are based upon the number of musicians requested, at a rate of one hundred fifty dollars per musician. The fee provides for two hours from arrival to departure. Within the two-hour period, you decide when and for how long you would like music played. Cemetery processions are generally thirty minutes in length, often with an opening and closing song in a memorial chapel. For indoor services we typically play prior to and following the service. For engagements longer than two hours fees are negotiable. Fees are payable in full at the time of booking.
