Whether you work with us or not, just be sure that you find someone who will offer you Versatility, Variety and Flexibility.
- In the event your venue does not allow amplified music, we can provide 100% acoustic music.

The ABC’s of Budgeting for Live Music
Because we’re a band and love to perform, we definitely encourage you to find live entertainment for your next event… But consider what other event planners have to say:
“If there was no band, you probably didn’t stay long.”
“You will prefer pictures of dancing to eating.”
“80% of success = live entertainment.”
So don’t forget to allow for an adequate budget for your LIVE entertainment. Think about how much you are planning to spend on the food and take that into account for your music.
- Folks spend from $20 to $100 on food.
- Figure at least $20 per person for entertainment.
- For a party of 100 should be a minimum of $2000+.
- For 200 people it would be a minimum of $4000+.
- For 500 people, it would be $10,000+.
Food lasts for maybe an hour?
Entertainment lasts for three or four hours.
