Frequently Asked Questions

Our fees? Our fee for a 3 or 4 hr dance is very reasonable. We want to play your event and we will work with you in every way so you can afford us. But you have to call to get it started.

Area required? Our big band takes up no more room than a six piece rock band (see picture) and usually less. Our players sit by side with their music fronts (music stands) for that classic look. Our set up gives the room a spectacular, impressive look to greet your guests.

Electricity? We need just two outlets and bring our own lights and sound. We even bring the spinning mirror ball to beautifully enhance the ambiance of those slow dances.

Band size? Our smallest size is 12 members which includes male and female vocalists.

Travel? We travel throughout the US. We can play anywhere and bring everything needed. We are detail oriented and can fit themes, colors and more.

Special Songs? We have over 500 songs already scored for our band from Aretha Franklin to Frank Sinatra. If we don’t have a song you want for a first dance in our library of music currently, we can have one created.

Technical requirements of the band

Some things we need from you

* Outlets: 2 or 3 regular 110-volt outlets.

* Free soft drinks, deli-tray or meal for the band members.

* If outside our sound & band equipment needs to be covered from the rain or hail.

* Staging: We have numerous ways to set up our Big Band to fit smaller rooms and narrow stages. If the stage is small or shallow of depth, sometimes we put the saxophone section on the floor right up to the dance floor. Sometimes if the stage area is narrow but wide, we set up in a V shape or as we call it, the flying wedge. But, if you want to set up a nice size stage for us and space is not a problem, we can fit everyone on a 16′ deep by 20′ wide stage.

Set up

We usually need at least two hours to set up all our sound equipment, risers, lights etc. Finding the band members a separate room to put their coats, horn cases, and more away from your guests etc., is also a great idea. If you are using us in a festival we can set up quickly if you already have the sound equipment and an sound engineer or technical assistant in place.
