Step 2 - Let's Talk

Contact us via the details provided in our documents or the email below. (Doing so implies that you undertake to satisfy our Minimim Live Requirements as defined in our Minimal Technical Specifications.) You should also know that 4 de Diciembre is an ensemble that does not draw from a pool of occassional musicians. Consequently, we do not offer concessions on performance fees based on a reduction in the number of musicians. We are, however, usually able to give preferential rates to events associated with causes that we believe in. (The best thing to do is to have a chat with us.)

Please have to hand the proposed performance dates, location, budget, PA provision and basic event details. Depending on that information, we might discuss accommodation and Food & Drink (rider) provision.

It is sometimes not possible for us to confirm our availability immediately. Should that be the case, we will get back to you at the earliest possible opportunity.

Once we come to an agreement, this will be mutually confirmed by email.

Step 3 - Venue and Setup Details

Look at the 'Event and Venue Details plus Action Points' document below and send us back the answers as best as you can (ideally by email). Should you prefer to send it by post, please contact us for a postal address.
