What is your band's usual attire?
For weddings we always appear in all black. We generally have jackets to start with, then they come off as the energy rises through the evening!

Do you usually emcee the event, or talk between songs?
We offer this to our clients if they so desire; it is included in our fee.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
That never happens!
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you need a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
We generally play 45 minute sets with 15-min. breaks in between. Because we are generally asked to set up many hours before the reception starts, we ask that the client provide a dinner prior to the start of our sets.
Do you play recorded music during your break?
Yes; your ipod or ours, whichever you prefer.
If one or more of the band members is unable to attend, what is your backup plan?
We have subs for all of our members, so we don't have to worry about losing someone last minute.
What is your overtime rate?
$500/hour.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
If we are traveling further than 100 miles, we ask for hotel expenses and sometimes fuel to be covered by the client. We generally need two double hotel rooms to sleep 8 guys. We leave it up to the client to decide on the hotel, so they can control the expense themselves.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
20% of the quoted fee.

33rd Street Band was amazing. Our guests started to dance as soon as the music started and no one wanted them to stop! What an amazing evening we had. I was so impressed with the level of professionalism and I would recommend this band to anyone and everyone. It did not matter how old you were - they had something for everyone. People kept asking us where we found them and said they wanted to book them for their wedding.

Thank you so much for everything!

Saw these guys at a wedding I was serving and had a blast during my downtime. Everyone was dancing! Pinched all my pennies in the year that followed and saved up to have them play at our wedding this weekend. AWESOME!!! Very professional, flexible, and fun. A little pricey but worth every penny. Chris was always easy to reached by phone or email. He asked all the right questions. I realize that our wedding was more laid back than most but Peter, Chris, and all the other guys were cool with mixing up the itinerary a bit. Peter also has an awesome MC voice! And, Thank goodness for their preparedness. Our i-pod with our music tracks got locked in a closet of the venue and they had their i-pod with "cocktail hour" music on stand-by!! At the end of the night everyone was raving about the band! It was so great to see our guests leaving happy - music was great for all ages!! Mission complete! Highly recommended!

The band was incredible. They were very flexible about what we wanted for the traditional dances, and were open to requests. They were very accomodating when there was a mix-up with dinner, and were more than friendly with the guests.

Their sound was amazing, and their energy was unparalleled. The dance floor was packed for the entire evening. The feedback from our guests was outstanding; our friends and family can't stop talking about how much fun they had, and how great the band was.

Without a doubt, they were the highlight of the evening. I can't say enough about how great these guys were.
