That depends on a whole list of details that need to first be determined. Length of show, size of event, day of the week, and even time of day are contributing factors in a performance bid. For a full list of necessary information, please contact band management.
No, however a stage is highly recommended as it adds to the overall production of your show. We work with local vendors and can provide a rented stage if your venue does not have one. Stage size requirements depend on number of musicians playing that particular show.
Yes! We often provide acoustic guitar and/or fiddle for these parts of your evening. Singing is optional. Even if we aren’t providing the entertainment, we are still able to provide a sound system with microphones and iPod connection. In addition, we have vendors who rent battery powered sound systems for ceremony or cocktail locations where power is not available.
The longest performance we provide is 3.5hrs. Typically, that consists of 3 hours of live music with 30 minutes of break time. Two sets 1:30 in length and a 30m break is most popular, but of course we can tailor our sets to fit your event’s schedule.
Yes. During breaks we will provide background music via ipod. Often clients provide their personal iPod or computer with their own playlist, however we can also provide a playlist based on your personal taste. During the later breaks we will provide anything from quiet background music to professional DJ dance mixes, depending on what is best at the moment. And, some songs are best left to the recording!
The band’s set-up personnel arrive three hours prior to our start time, unless any restrictions on sound-check require us to arrive earlier. Set-up generally takes about 1.5hrs with a 20m sound check. Other arrangements can be made if necessary. It typically takes about an hour and fifteen minutes to pack up at the end of the engagement.
The contract is emailed to you and the signed contract is mailed back to us along with a $500.00 deposit. This secures your date. Balance of payment is due on your event date, prior to showtime. Gratuities are payable directly to the bandleader. Other payment schedules may be arranged, upon request. Payments are made by personal check or cash.
