We do offer continuous music for all of our acts. However it is important for you to explain to your agent what you mean by continuous music. We are aware of other agencies in town that promises continuous music when their bands perform but instead of keeping the band (or band members) on stage throughout, they simply put on a CD. Technically, this is “continuous” music because music is always playing from the band stage. If this is what you mean by continuous music then you don’t even have to ask the question. All of our bands are capable of providing pre-recorded music during any band breaks.

More typically, the clients mean continuous music as is typical in a “New York Style” reception. In this format the bands will figure out a way to keep at least a few musicians on stage at all times so you have live music during any food courses or scheduled breaks. Again, all of our bands are happy to offer this service, but some of the acts will charge a fee and some won’t. Therefore, it’s important that you plan on discussing this option with your agent if it’s one of your requirements.

Whatever you choose, continuous music or normal band breaks, our bands will carefully coordinate any breaks with the events of the evening according to your preferences. It is typical for a band to break during meals, toasts or cake cuttings only and NEVER when it’s a great time for your guests to dance. We want your guests to be constantly entertained — whether they’re eating, listening to toasts or dancing all night long.
