Booking a band for your event can throw up some tricky questions. Here's some advice from our extensive experience.
WHAT DO WE NEED TO PROVIDE FOR THE BAND?
We believe in taking the pain of making these arrangements away from you. We'll do all we can to liaise with the venue but typically we need the basics such as a power supply and an area to set up in.
WILL YOU LEARN A SONG FOR US?
We're always looking to increase our song list so if there's a specific song you need, we'll be more than happy to play it for you (with enough notice) - regardless of how weird and wonderful it may be.
HOW LONG WILL YOU PLAY AND HOW LONG ARE THE BREAKS?
Set times are typically 45 minutes long and breaks between them are usually 15 minutes. Having said that, we're flexible and will play any set times you like. We'll fill in break times with disco sets or background music.
WILL IT BE THE SAME MUSICIANS ON THIS SITE PLAYING AT MY EVENT?
Yes! We're a tight 5 piece band and are proud of who we are. Other bands will often hire in drummers or vocalists to cover certain gigs. We don't believe in doing this. In a nutshell, what you see is that you get.
WHAT WILL THE BAND MEMBERS WEAR?
We always dress professionally for events but if you have any special requests for a themed event then just let us know.
WHAT ABOUT VOLUME?
Volume is always at the discretion of you, the client. However it can be difficult to balance the dynamic required for a good performance against requests for very low volume but we're always sympathetic to your requests.
HOW MUCH SHOULD I EXPECT TO PAY?
Costs typically vary from $2,250 to $3,000. We need to decide how long we'll play for, whether you need a DJ, time of the day or night, the type of event, location of the event and the number of guests. We're always flexible and encourage you to contact us to discuss any questions you may have.
DO I NEED TO PAY A DEPOSIT?
A small, non-refundable deposit is required in order to confirm the booking. There are periods of busy dates especially during wedding season and we'll often have multiple requests for the same dates. The amount is flexible and we're happy to discuss this with you.
DO I GET TO SEE YOU LIVE BEFORE I DECIDE TO BOOK?
We'll do our best to arrange public gigs from time to time for you to come and check us out and have a dance. We'll post these dates, times and locations on our Facebook page. If there's nothing booked then we're happy to have you at the studio to meet us and listen to us in action.
BUT I STILL HAVE A QUESTION!
