I just came up with this great idea to have my old marching band instructor select a few talented kids from my old HS to play some music during our cocktail hour. Since I was involved in percussion; it would probably be the boards (xylo,marimba, vibraphone), maybe a kid on the guitar, one wind instrument maybe? I think it’d be a nice little nod back to my long ago musical days, and would for sure be cheaper than to rent a quartet. Plus it’d give the kids some real-world experience!
I was thinking about having them at the ceremony too, but I think we may have to stick with the church organist and pianist.
So, do I expect for them to stick around for the reception, or atleast do I feed them?

That sounds like a great idea! Personally, I’d feed them especially if they weren’t getting paid. The joy of HS students is that they a) probably don’t want to hang out at your wedding and B) would probably be happy with pizza or fast food. I used to work in a HS and my kids were always happy to work for the promise of a pizza party or something.
If it’s just providing some pizza at their practice I’m sure that would be appreciated. It would be a nice thank you gesture.

As a music teacher, I’m going to second katsupgirl. My kids also go nuts over any kind of food. I remember being in high school and almost always getting $5 or free food after playing for things with the community band. It was awesome!

Thanks ladies! I was going to pay them after they performed (doubt my teacher would take it though!) but I never thought of sending a couple of pizzas/subs etc to their practice…I love it!
