Of course! We have general liability coverage as well as insurance for all of our equipment, so you don’t have to worry.
We will need a sufficient electrical supply and stage to set up. We also ask that a meal be provided as it is a can be a long day and we want to be well-fuelled so our performances exceed every expectation!
We dress formally and professionally to every event – this is our typical attire:
The band can fit in a space anywhere between 12′ x 12′ to 20′ x 16′, but the 20’ x 16’ is what we recommend for the best visuals for your event. A smaller stage is manageable, but it limits the band’s range of motion. With regards to the power, a minimum of 4 separate, 15 amp circuits is required to ensure all audio/visual equipment operates properly at your event.
We don’t do that. We don’t have part-time members of the band as they would never have the chance to get tight with the rhythm section. We also NEVER substitute band members as it diminishes the quality of our performance. Beware the bands out there that have an ‘A’ band and a ‘B’ band, and don’t believe any band that says it doesn’t affect how good they sound when they put in a sub player.
DAY OF YOUR EVENT
Depending on your event schedule and contracted performance time, the band can perform anywhere from 45-60 songs.
We play what you want to hear! If there is a song you don’t want us to play, let us know when we discuss the custom setlist for your special event.
Our performance sets are approximately 45-50 minutes and our breaks are usually 15-30 minutes each.
The number of breaks the band takes depends on how many performance sets we play. The band will take one 15-30 minute break after each 45-50 minute performance. Add-ons for music to be played during our breaks is available.
Absolutely! Our microphones are always available for you and your guests to use for speeches and announcements. Depending on the size of the venue, we may need to set-up additional speakers around the room to balance the sound.
We always travel with sound and lighting tech. The responsibility to set up our professional sound and lighting equipment is pretty complex, so we have a professionally trained tech on-hand to do JUST THAT. We don’t “set it and forget it”, and we constantly monitor sound and lighting throughout the performance. The only time we don’t travel with a sound and lighting tech is when they are provided by the venue or production company.
