My harp teacher calls that a "potted palm gig".   She says you're hired 
to sit and play during some upscale event and you inevitably get placed 
near one or two potted palms.

We have a wonderful group of musicians up here in the North who play 
many of our feasts.  I always feel there is something missing when they 
aren't present.
