Working With Us

Or simply tell us the general vibe you're looking for, and we'll figure it all for you.
5 ConfirmationAfter you are satisfied with your final plan, we'll formally run through your times and plan for the event, resolve any potential issues, and polish it all until we're all sure that it’s perfect. This usually happens around a week before the event, but sometimes earlier if you are super-organized.
The main event!With everything organized, there is nothing more to do at your event than kick back and have an incredible night, with an amazing band. We pride ourselves on this part especially - its all about great preparation and a genuine love for what we do.
