Q: MY EVENT IS MULTICULTURAL OR BILINGUAL.. CAN YOU PERFORM LATIN AMERICAN?

A: YES! It is what we call C'Nergy Mix. Please let us know the geographics percentage of the audiance attending so we know how to setup accordangly with the right band assamble. However, due to the nature of the need of percussion for C'Nergy Mix we preffer a minimum size band is 9 piece band.

 

 

Q: WHAT INFORMATION DO YOU NEED TO BE ABLE TO QUOTE A PRICE FOR AN EVENT?

 A: All events are not created equal. There are many factors that can affect the over all cost. Some of those include:  

 

  • - Time of the year
  • - Name and address of the Venue
  • - Number of guests
  • - Band size 

 

 

Q: DO THE BANDS LEARN NEW MATERIAL TO PERFORM FOR SPECIAL DANCES AT WEDDING RECEPTIONS? 

A: YES. The band will learn One songs that are not included in their repertoire, providing that the songs to be learned fit the style of the band. The song can be for the first dance, father-daughter dance, or mother-son dance. The request must be submitted 120 days before the performance. However, if you wish the band to perform live for the Father/Daughter and Mother and song dance you can pick a song from our current song list and we will perform it live. Songs must be selected and send for the band to review and rehears 120 day prior to date of the event.

 

Q:WHERE IS THE BAND LOCATED?

A: We are located in Florida and consider Miami, Naples, Tampa, and Orlando, to be our regular travel areas. Additional travel fees may be incurred for locations such as Key West or Jacksonville.

 

 

Q: IF THE BAND CANNOT PERFORM THE REQUESTED SONG FOR A SPECIAL DANCE AT A WEDDING RECEPTION, WHAT CAN BE DONE?

A: YES. We will have your music on iPod ready to play at your event, in lieu of the band performing it.

 

 

Q: HOW MANY BREAKS THE BAND TAKES?

A: We take one 20-25 minute break during the main course service. We have found that this is a time where guests want to converse at their tables, and the band is not only not missed, but it is actually preferable to have the band not playing during this time. We play appropriate background dinner music via a flash drive during the break often making a custom dinner playlist based on your requests. This break also gives the band a chance to eat, refresh, and come out strong right after the dinner segment. We don’t stagger breaks, as that would give the client even less time with the full group and product, plus some members (such as the drummer) are really needed for almost any music. That being said, I advise against continuous music as it tends to unnecessarily wear out the band, and makes for a lesser overall event, however we can offer continuous music at an additional cost if you must have it.

 

 

Q: HOW MUCH SPACE OR SIZE STAGE DO YOU REQUIRE?

A: We can work very comfortably on a stage 12′ deep by 24′ wide, and this is a very typical size stage for our 6 piece group. A larger stage it may required for larger bands. Based on the size of the band having the right stage size is better as it gives our performers more room to move around, however our thinking is to make sure there is plenty of space for the dance floor and to not overwhelm the room with a huge stage. We can also work without a stage, and in some venues this is just fine, maybe even preferable, however having a stage typically makes for a better look and allows all of the guests to easily view the band when the dance floor is packed.

 

 

Q: WILL A LARGE BAND BE TOO LOUD FOR MY EVENT?

A: Excessive volume is not necessarily a product of the size of the band, for instance some of the loudest bands in history were four and five-piece groups! We have our sound and volume in check perhaps better than anyone in the business and use some of the most expensive high-end and high tech equipment available in order to keep our sound consistently perfect. 

 

 

Q: HOW MUCH POWER DO YOU REQUIRE?

A: We require a minimum of three separate 20 amp circuits to the stage area and for the band only. This is your typical house type power, but on three separate breakers and not shared by other items. Many venues have the power in place and nicely labeled, other venues (especially venues with moveable walls), don’t have any power, and require what is known as a power drop box. The power drop box is always the preferred power choice when available. We require the power for band use only as other items such as small lighting can create buzzing sounds in the sound system, or worse yet, cause the power to blow.

  

 

Q: HOW DO I SECURE A BAND FOR MY EVENT?

A: Once a contract is signed and a deposit is received, your event date will be secured.
