This really fun 6-piece band has been called "The Best Wedding Band Ever"! because we get everyone on the dance floor, with awesome vocals, keyboards and sax backed by an excellent rhythm section including drums, bass and guitar. We've played hundreds of weddings all over Colorado and in nearby states and we just love it!

With over 1300 songs, we are unique in our ability to play any type of music you want including classic rock, 80s, Motown, bluegrass, jam, pop, hip hop, salsa, jazz, oldies, swing and country. Given sufficient notice, we will play any and every request you have! We work closely with you to make sure you get to hear everything you want....we've taken requests for everything from the Grateful Dead to Bruno Mars to Frank Sinatra to Metallica, and everything in between!

This band can provide a smaller ensemble to handle your ceremony with classical music and provide amplification for you, the officiant and other people who will speak; split into smaller groups that can play two places (say inside and out on a patio) for cocktails, play light background music during dinner; and act as Emcee for your event. We'll play CDs during breaks but make a point to keep breaks few and short. We are always in step with events as they unfold to make sure everything goes smoothly for your special day!

If you haven't done so already, be sure to listen to our videos at http://adhocbands.com/the-spotlight-band-dance-band-wedding-band-denver-colorado. There are also a bunch of testimonials here and a link to the songlist.

Give us a call anytime if you have questions or would like to go ahead and book the band.

Thanks! Julie

INFO FOR BAND

Are you an agency or a band?
Band
What is the size of your band?
Large (6+ musicians), Medium (4-6 musicians), Small (1-3 musicians)
What music genre does your band play?
50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, Acoustic, Big Band, Blues, Calypso, Classic Rock, Classical, Country, Dance, Folk, Funk, Gospel, Hip Hop, Jazz, Latin, Motown, Oldies, Orchestra, Pop, Punk Rock, R&B, Reggae, Rock, Soul, Strings, Swing, World
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
What is your band's usual attire?
Tuxes or whatever fits your theme!
Do you offer live sample performances or CDs?
Yes, tons of them on our official page at http://www.adhocbands.com/spotlights.html
Are you willing to learn songs that you do not currently know?
Yes! Our song list is currently over 1300 songs so you'll find most everything you can imagine... and we'll play another 5 of your favorites that are not already on the list!
How much time do you usually need for setup?
Set up takes about an hour or an hour and a half. If you need us to, we can also have setup completed up to 2 hours prior to our start time at no additional charge. So, if you have a 6 pm start time for the band, we'll be set up by 4 pm!
How much space do you usually require?
We like to have about 12' x 18' but we can squeeze as needed. The drummer can bring an electronic drum set which sounds cool and is smaller than a regular kit. This helps a lot!
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
We do but we don't have to use it. It is pretty unobtrusive and we hang it in front of the keyboard, not on the wall.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
If you need lights, we are able to rent these for you at a good price.
Do you usually emcee the event, or talk between songs?
Yes, Matt, the band leader acts as Emcee. He has great stage presence and knows how to make it all about you!
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
Switch musical styles or play a slow dance.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you need a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
We do like to ask for a meal because it's a long day by the time we've set up, played for many hours, then loaded out. Many venues provide a less expensive vendor meal. If it's a problem, we'll work it out with you! 
 
 As far as breaks, we don't require 15 minutes every hour like many bands. In fact, we structure the entire night around your timeline so you keep the guests there and dancing!
Do you play recorded music during your break?
Yes! And we can play your CDs or from your iPod or mp3 player if you like.
If one or more of the band members is unable to attend, what is your backup plan?
We have been at this for years and have played hundreds of weddings so we have people who have worked with the band in the past and can step in anytime there is an illness or other emergency.
What is your overtime rate?
$400 per additional hour
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
Yes and they are based on the location. Call us for a full quote!
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
50%

The Spotlight Band played our reception, and they rocked. Honestly our guests were raging like they were at a show. We gave them some liberties, let them stretch songs and jam, and they did not disappoint. Possibly the best money we spent on the entire reception. They did two encores!!! So much fun. And what great memories.

We danced our Booties off! We had Such a great time at our reception. They played all of our pre-requests impeccably and even threw in a bunch of tunes in the same genre that really made our reception memorable as a party to celebrate our day. The keyboardist Matt was also helpful on the microphone, with toasts and our first dance. A real Emcee up there. I heartily reccomend the Spotlight Band for your affair. Great value. Lots of fun and he is a really nice dude as well. Thanks Guys!

My band was famous in the 70's and, yes, we hit gold. So when I needed a band for my daughter's wedding, I wasn't sure what I would find locally near Keystone. This band ended up working perfectly for us. I wanted one of my former band members to sing a couple of our old tunes with me and the band backed us up. It was flawless. Then they went on to play other classic rock, modern pop and dance tunes, jazz, and more. I was impressed that they were able to keep up the energy considering we were at the top of Keystone Mountain but even more impressed by their ability to play so many different styles. This band is definitely is a great choice for a wedding. Thank you Matt and the Spotlight Band for all of your hard work and for making the wedding a success - and yes, you can back me up anytime!

We spent a lot of time researching bands, it was a big decision for us and we couldn't have been happier with the Spotlight band. Everyone had such a great time dancing to their music, they played the songs we asked for, and weren't cheesey at all. They worked with us on a lot of special requests and helped make our perfect wedding!!

The Spotlight Dance and Variety Band was perfect for out wedding. Their list of songs they already knew was amazing and took my wife a long time to go through (I didn't know most of the songs so I wasn't much help). But the Band was also willing to learn any other new songs they didn't have on their list, which was great.

Their actual performance was outstanding and everyone at the wedding seemed to love it. They played a great variety of songs that we chose, and Matt did a good job MC'ing. We would definitely recommend them for your wedding/event.
