2. Travel to Canada - Due to the increased travel time and wait at the border, Kevin normally charges for going over the border as well as distances through the Canada.

3. Travel Cost, Availability, Lodging and Does he travel out of state? -  Cost depends on number of miles, amount of time etc.  Since last June, Kevin has performed in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Southern Indiana, etc.... so he does travel out of his home state...but his availability may be limited depending on many factors. Normal lodging and travel expenses usually apply - nothing fancy needed - national hotel chain is fine.

The light show is extra LED laser lights used to enhance the dance floor or used for special events. He has found that for most weddings, normal lights is what most couples want and they don't need or want the light show (that is completely fine!)... Kevin does offer it, however for those who do want it.

7. Extras - Over the years Kevin has had a few situations where people needed / wanted extra things.  Please let him know if there is anything special or extra you want for your event. He is happy to do all he can accommodate requests.
