The sooner, the better! If the venue space is available we will set up the sound system and stage lights on the morning of the event. Full band set up and sound check will be complete at least a half hour before guests enter.
4 hours on average, but if the party is going strong we frequently play an hour or more overtime.
We love to keep the momentum going! The band only takes 2 breaks during the entire event, including overtime. If it is a wedding, first break is during entree (20 mins) and second break is after the cake cut (15 mins).
We make customized play lists of your favorite songs to play on each break.
