I used Alice for my parents 30th anniversary Party and Alice was great. Not just her talent but working with her was a breeze. She called to get details of the event, coordinated with the color scheme and theme, and asked for any song requests.
All the guests raved about her and her music really elevated the event and made it much more special. I highly recommend Alice.
Last night Alice Keene performed at a Valentine Dinner in our Lodge. She was fabulous and made the evening memorable for everyone who attended. What a lovely lady and talented Harpist. Can't wait to hear her again.
Response from harpist Alice Keene:
What to Expect
The client can expect a professional presentation both visually as well as musically. When hired to play, I make sure that not only is the music prepared but also that I present myself beautifully with this beautiful instrument. A client can expect that I will arrive ahead of the scheduled starting time, be set up and ready to begin per contracted agreement.

Additional Booking Notes
As a professional I make sure to ask what the performance/staging area will be. I plan accordingly so I know what I will need to provide. I have my own amplification system. The inventory I have and I take to a job allows me to self-sufficent, thus I do not need anything supplied except electricity. Additional set up help may be needed ONLY if the harp must go up stairs.
If I am hired to play outdoors, it is necessary for the client to have a "rain location" and also make sure that the location of the harp is out of direct sunlight.
