Q6: What is a “Set” ? And how long is one Set?
A: A Set is our Live Band’s performance duration of 45mins.
For weddings, we are usually engaged for 2 Sets:
– 1st Set of 45mins starts after 1st March-In when 1st Dish is served.
– 2nd Set of 45mins starts after 2nd March-In when Table-to-Table Photo-taking commences.
Each Set has a maximum of 12 songs.
Q7: Do your Live Band Packages include Sound System?
A: Yes, Sound System is included in all our Live Band Packages.
Check it out here.
They are bundled into our Live Band Packages & Promotions and are compulsory to ensure our Service & Sound Quality for your big day.
We Do NOT use venue Sound Systems due to the following reasons:
– Many Hotels do not allow Live Band to use theirs.
– Hotel Sound Systems are normally PA systems good for speech and not suitable for Live Band use.
– In worst scenarios we experienced, some venue’s PA systems will easily overload and cut off the system power when there are too many inputs (which is common for Live Band).
– Hotel AV Crews are not trained to handle and monitor Live Band Sounds, which will affect our performance.
Q8: Do your musicians bring their own instruments?
A: Yes, we do!
Smaller Instruments like Guitars are personal instruments brought by respective musicians.
Bigger ones like Keyboards are included as part of our In-House Sound System & Live Band Equipment Rental, included in Live Band Packages.
Q9: What logistics do you guys need from our banquet venue?
A: Since our Live Band packages already include In-House Sound System & Equipment Rental, we only need Power Source Outlets and a Stage Space for our Live Band.
For Emcees, Venue must provide at least Podium Mics and/or Wireless Mics.
Q10: What kind of songs do your Live Bands play?
A: We play a wide genre of repertoire ranging from Pop, Sentimental, Oldies to Bossa Nova and of different languages including English, Chinese, Hokkien, Cantonese, Japanese & Korean.
Our repertoire grows with you!

Thus we aimed to ensure that the booking process and experience for customers and couples are stream-lined, easy to understand, and most importantly fun & enjoyable!
