Frequently Asked Questions

 

We can provide all the advice you need to make your event a musical success, however here are a few pointers to get your planning off on the right note!  For specific questions please email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Playing time

Depending on the function / event we will play 2 - 3 sets of approximately 40 - 60 minutes in length.

How big is a Big Band?

Our big band line-up can vary between 12 and 20 people.

Space

The band can fit in a surprisingly small space (approximately the size of a large gazebo - 6 metres by 3 metres).

Volume

A 12+ piece Big Band is loud, especially in smaller enclosed venues.  This is something to consider depending on the type of function you are planning.

If space or volume is a concern you may wish to consider the smaller version of the band (5 - 7 people).

Electricity

We will need access to electrical outlets even if we are not using any PA equipment.

Public Address (PA)

We can provide additional PA amplification, but this is usually only used for announcements and any background music you may want during breaks.

Parking

Ideally the band needs easy access to the venue with parking available for a number of cars.

Refreshments

Such as mineral water are always appreciated by the band!
