Los Angeles Live Wedding Music

A client pointed out something very interesting the other day. She said: “People want to make fools of themselves at a wedding, and they need you to help them do it!”
Well. yes…of course…absolutely, that’s it!
The sillier people get, the more we play music that enables…well, more silliness.
That’s why you hire a live band, in the first place, isn’t it?
Recorded music lasts the length of each individual song, then moves on to another song. But if folks are down on the floor writhing like little worms to “Shout,” we don’t have to end the song.
That’s because we’re a live band! A live band that just happens to be skilled at providing music for weddings and events…situations in which people are literally prepared to have the time of their lives!
And it’s our sacred duty to make sure that happens.
With our 4,000 song “bottomless” repertoire, we’re not limited by arrangements that we’re reading from books. That would slow us down, and we’d be bored. People might fall asleep.
We would really HATE it if that happened at one of our weddings.
Many of the people who hire us are musicians and entertainers themselves.
They know what it means to have a band that never runs out of material.
Having WAY MORE than enough material to play for about three solid months without ever repeating a song puts us at the top of the art form of live music for weddings. We’re also just a little bit outside the box when it comes to timelines and staging. We hate cookie-cutter templates.
