How many are in your band?

5 crazy & fun musicians.

 

Do you all play just local bars/venues or do you also play events?

We do not discriminate. If you'll have us, we'll play!

 

How much do you charge?

Our rates depend on a couple factors if we have to travel, but usually we keep it pretty local or within 100 miles. I promise...we're totally affordable. Contact Barb >>here<<.

 

What is your band's usual attire?

MY JULY dresses accordingly for each occasion. For a more formal occasion (such as a wedding) the men wear black
button down shirts and slacks with a solid color tie and the female wears a black dress or slacks with a sequined top.
However, we can dress more casually for other events or themed parties.

 

What are your song selections?

We are always changing and adding new songs. The most current can be found >>here<<.

 

Do you play music on your system when the band is on a break?

For sure. Gotta keep the party going...even while we catch a breather. :)

 

Do you take requests?

Sure! If we know it, we'll play it.

 

How much time do you usually need for setup?

Approximately 1.5 hours. We like to be set up, sound check and be ready to go at least 30 minutes prior to any start time.

 

How much space do you need to set up?

We've played on many different sizes from small to large. As long as you can fit 5 of us we'll make it work. For corporate type events, we do prefer a somewhat elevated stage rather than set up directly on the floor - but we can make it work if your venue does not offer a stage. For outdoor performances, we will not perform in rain, looming threat of rain or temperatures dipping below 55. The stage should be level and not directly on the grass in case of unexpected showers. Outdoor stages must be covered - even on a beautiful day to protect against the sun, rain or anything else that might come our way. The cover  must extend at least 10 feet over the edge of the stage on all sides so our gear doesn't get soaked in the event of unexpected rain. We kinda don't want to be electrocuted or lose any of our gear if it starts raining.

 

Do you require your clients to provide your meal and drinks?

For private events, yes please. For local bars and venues, it's appreciated...but understood if not included.

 

What is your policy on taking breaks?
We take 2 breaks in a night. For private type events, the band will play until the hot entree is served (typically) and then start playing again after the cake cutting and garter/bouquet toss.

 

What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?

We use 8 hi-tech LED stage lights fully programed and coordinated with the music via lighting controls. We also have LED multi-colored laser dot lighting for the dance floor area.

 

Do you emcee the events?

Yes! We even customize a questionnaire for our clients to fill out as the event draws closer.

See a sample of our wedding questionnaire >>here<<.

 

Do you require a contract and do you take checks?

Local bars and venues, we just need a verbal agreement/text/conversation in order to book a date. Payments are to be made in cash at local venues. If it is your policy to write a check, we will gladly accept them as long as you can cash the check directly after we sign it.

 

For private events, we need a signed contract (electronic is fine) to book the date. No deposit needed. Payment is to be made in cash upon our arrival before any gear is to be set up. See a sample of our performance agreement & contract >>here<<.
