We organized to serve in churches, and there is no charge for our engagement in Sunday evening services. We do have expenses and request a Love Offering, which defrays costs for other projects we do — such as prison ministry and support of the Santa’s Helpers Toy Drives.
The MPO is also available for secular events and private parties. Fees vary, and are negotiable depending on the event. Costs are higher for Saturday evenings, or peak seasons (i.e.- Christmas holidays); and much higher for New Years Eve and Valentines Day). Rates may be a little lower for events on Saturday mornings or Sunday afternoons.
Our flagship organizations is the big band, but we have smaller groups to fit all occasions and budgets. Ask about the “little big band” (4 horns and a rhythm section); or our crowd-pleasing 5 and 6-piece ensembles and Dixieland groups.
Have a more intimate event? MPO members are local pros who gig all occasions, and we can configure trios and quartets.
The MPO is very negotiable for events on Saturday mornings or Sunday afternoons, when those events are free and open to the public. MPO musicians are working pros and standard professional rates will apply for ticketed events and private parties.
The MPO is comprised of church musicians. If you wish to contract a pro, use one of our guys.
