What suits your occasion? A quick overview of the differences...
Price- This is the first factor, our 4 piece live band is about 50% more in price than the duo. A wedding or corporate event will be approx $850 plus travel for the duo, $1200 plus travel for band. Clubs and other public events subject to negotiation depending on distance and regularity. P.A. and full LED lighting rig included in price.
Performance time- Four hours performance time is the norm, usually 3 sets with a couple of small breaks.
Size- Our duo takes up about 8 sq m floor area (2m deep, 4m wide), the band about 14 sq m minimum.
Song Choice- The duo uses our custom midi tracks so has the widest range of songs in many genres and suits most age groups, the full band has a similar range but concentrates on classic and especially Kiwi rock- 70's to 90's predominantly, all completely live. For weddings and other special events, we can customise our setlist from your choices, or learn a first dance song.
Setup/Soundcheck time- The duo can be set up in as little as 1/2 hour in the ideal venue with good access, the band is normally about 1 hr minimum.
Sound volume- The duo can control sound level completely, in the band situation a live drummer sets the overall volume, but we are still at a good level for most situations. Both lineups use the Bose sound system which has a small footprint with excellent front of house performance.
Overall- Our duo offers a reasonable price with a wide range of songs, 2 vocalists with live guitar and keys. Our band option offers a fully live version which highlights the human element more, dynamics with addition of live bass and drums, therefore more adaptability to the event.
