Q: Do you guys play weddings? What do you usually expect for compensation? Are you available on 12/20/14?

A: Sounds like fun, Courtney! I have to check with the other Notes on schedules. But we'd love to. Where would the location be? If 5-Cities or SLO area it would be $800 for 4 hours worth of fun.
