WHAT SIZE BAND SHOULD I CHOOSE?
We customize our band format to suit the atmosphere of your unique event. Smaller functions may call for musical groups of four musicians or less, while larger functions will benefit from the energy of an eight (plus) piece band with a full-scale audio and lighting experience. It depends on the vision you have for your special event.

We don't mean to brag, but we know how to dress to impress. Our stylish musicians will hit the stage in semi-formal attire.

We are flexible with the lengths of our sets and happy to coordinate a performance schedule that makes sense for your event.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING BAND BREAKS?
We will have a playlist of pre-recorded music cued up for set breaks, so the party can keep on going. Let us know how we can customize our playlist to your liking.

No problem! A member of our team will coordinate logistics with your DJ to ensure smooth transitions between live and pre-recorded music.

HOW LONG DOES SET-UP TAKE?
We like to start loading into the venue at least 3 hours before guests are due to arrive. This gives us plenty of time to set-up, soundcheck and move our belongings into the green room, so your guests can enjoy a welcoming and relaxing environment as the event kicks off.
