Frequently Asked

There are so many entertainment options. How do I decide?

We’re happy to set up a call and chat about Bands vs. DJs,  pros/cons of different band types,  red flags when booking entertainment,  booking strategies,  and anything else. You can also check out helpful hints in our handy How-To guide.

Where can I see the band perform live?

We have public shows around New England almost every week, as well as band showcases at least once per month. Check out the band schedules for Them Apples, or The Sugarbabies.

What are a band's typical instruments?

We’ve found this to be the perfect instrumentation to play most genres of dance music authentically and with a full sound; Male Vocals,  Female Vocals,  Saxophone,  Keyboards, Guitar,  Bass,  and Drums. You can always customize by adding more—just ask.

What if we don’t see our favorite song on your list, will the band learn it?

Absolutely! Our bands don’t mind learning a couple tunes for your event - as we approach the date and go over song preferences,  we can figure out which songs to avoid,  which to focus on,  which to DJ versus playing live, and if there’s anything the band should learn specifically for you.

How many breaks will the band take? And will they put on music during the breaks?

This totally depends on what you want and how you plan your event flow. Our bands reserve the right to take a few quick breaks. We will always put on appropriate music during any break to keep the right energy going.

How much space does the band need to perform? Do we need to get a stage?

We say our ideal stage size is 10 by 20 feet, but we have also rocked much larger and much smaller spaces. Let us know what you’re working with and we’ll tell you if it’s an issue.

Do we have to rent  stage for you to perform?

Nope. You do not need to rent a stage— that is up to your preferences. We just require a solid, hard, dry surface to perform on (no sand/dirt/gravel). It’s always fun to perform on a stage, but it’s totally up to you.

How does the payment schedule work?

The industry standard is to require a 50% deposit with the contract signing, and the balance to be due on or before the date of your event. Let us know if it’s an issue and we can try to work it out.

If my guests are having too much fun, can we extend the party on the spot?

Of course! Just let the band leader know that you want to extend and they’ll be able to go over logistics and pricing on the spot. (This happens often)
