Sound and Lights? Stage Requirements?
We have a professional sound system and lighting rig to cover
most any venue. It is helpful if we know in advance if we are
playing to 40 people or 4,000 so we can bring the appropriate
system for the event. Unless other arrangements are made, the
band will provide its own sound and lighting. However, the client
must make arrangements with the venue for the stage and electrical
requirements. As per our contract, we require 4 separate 20 amp
circuits for the PA, lighting and stage instruments.
How long do they require to set up
Depending on the venue, the band can set up, do a sound check
and be ready to play in under 2 hours -- less if time is tight.
Before we arrive, however, the room must be available, the correct
size stage must be set and clear of any obstructions and all power
needs (i.e. spider box) must be met. Some venues are more time
consuming to get all the equipment into the room and elevators
can get crowded (florists, catering, etc.). Therefore, it is best
to let us know what time your guests will be arriving, so we can
get in and set up prior to the doors opening for the guests.
Will they be dressed appropriately?
The band will always be dressed in a manner suitable for the event.
In most cases, we wear in black suits. Of course, many outdoor
events are more casual (khakis, short sleeves)...just let us know
and we will dress accordingly.
What about the volume?
The speakers may be big but that doesn't mean they have to be
loud (unless you ask for it loud!). We will bring an appropriately
sized sound system and run it accordingly. We understand that
your guests want to talk during dinner and that when it is time
to dance, you want to feel the beat. If at any time you feel that
the volume should come up or down, please let the band leader
know and it will be adjusted.
Background / break music?
During our breaks, we will play appropriate music on cd. If you
would like to provide your own music for the breaks, please make
bring an iPod, burn a cd or choose one or two good compilations.
Where can I see the band?
We primarily play private events. If any of our bands plays an
event open to the public, it will be posted on our
