Yes
What is your band's usual attire?
We dress according to the event and venue. For private functions, we will wear suits or tuxes, most often. But of course if it's a Halloween party, you never know!
Do you offer live sample performances or CDs?
Sure! Just contact us
Are you willing to learn songs that you do not currently know?
Of course! Whether it's your special bridal dance song or a random song you just HAVE to have, we would be happy to
How much time do you usually need for setup?
Usually 2-3 hours. That's for setup and sound check, to make sure everything is set with lighting and sound
How much space do you usually require?
Wow...in a perfect world, we have a 20' x 16' stage. In the real world, we've dealt with everything in between...smaller (much) and bigger! We will make it work

We can do both, one or neither. Whatever you prefer!
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
I can't say that has ever happened, because we are very interactive -- from grabbing people out of their seats, or just joining you on the dance floor. We quickly get a sense of what type(s) of music would be appropriate for a crowd and stick with those!
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you need a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
We usually take a 15-20 minute break after every hour. While there is no REQUIREMENT to provide meals, we sure do appreciate them and are usually provided meals.

My mom first heard Ani & the band a few years ago at a different function and immediately fell in love. From the moment we got engaged we immediately knew that we wanted a band at our wedding. We had been to a few other weddings over the years and the way a band is able to engage the guests is exactly what we wanted. We had listened to a few local bands and did not love them when my mom reminded us of Ani. The next weekend we drove to the Detroit suburbs to listen to them. It was actually a Saturday evening and the Tigers were in post season play. It was a win or go home game which ended up getting ugly towards the end. The band was asked to not start playing until the game was over by the manager. This gave us the opportunity to introduce ourselves to the band (we previously spoke over email and phone) and the band all came up to introduce themselves to us and Ani sat and watched most of the game with us. They truly made us feel welcome and comfortable. She even dedicated a couple of songs to us. We knew leaving there that we wanted them to share in our wedding day with us and booked them that week.

Leading up to the wedding they were in touch with us to ensure they knew exactly how we wanted the night to flow with everything from the pronunciation of the bridal party names to the order of events of the night, songs to not play etc.

We cannot tell you how many compliments we received on the band and their professionalism throughout the evening. I hope a friend will use them in the future so I can enjoy them again at a wedding!

The Ani band was fantastic at our wedding. They played all different varieties of music. They had everyone from the teens to the grandparents on the dance floor. Noise level and quality was phenomial. They interacted with the crowd great and let some sing their favorite songs. I would more then recommend this band to anyone looking for great wedding entertainment as we have received nothing but great reviews from our guest!!

The Ani Band is fabulous. They rocked our reception from beginning to end. We spent quite awhile searching for the right band and we are so happy we decided on the Ani Band, they are worth every penny! Ani, Winston, and the rest of the band were so fun and easy to work with. They even learned our first dance song with very little notice. We would highly recommend the Ani Band, our guests had a great time dancing and singing with them. They definitely made it a night we will always remember.

The Ani Band was everything we expected for our wedding reception. When you make the decision to go with live entertainment over a DJ for your wedding reception/special event there is definitely more cost involved so you want to choose a professional band with complete service. This is exactly what we got and would not have changed anything. The lead singer/coordinator of the band, Ani, was very professional and easy to work with. The MC, Winston, contacted us a few weeks prior to the reception and worked out all the fine details of the reception. It was a relief not having to worry about that aspect of our big day with all the other planning going on at the same time. We feel the music selection was on point and look forward to seeing our video in the near future. My wife and I highly recommend the Ani Band. Any questions, feel free to email me at popeye24@gmail.com.

From beginning to end Ani Band rocked our wedding reception. Ani was also extremely accommodating and flexible with timing, as we had issues with the reception flow. 6 months later people are STILL talking about our band. I would highly recommend ANI BAND, they had a great time dancing and singing with our guest and making it a night we will always remember.

This group is fabulous! We spent quite awhile searching for the right band and originally had a budget too small for them but we're so glad we adjusted that budget - they were worth every penny. For us, the music was important - it sets the tone of the entire evening. We don't think we've ever been to a wedding where so many people were continuously on the dance floor. This band is great with the crowd - they do a great job at keeping people on their feet and having fun. We're also very critical of bands who attempt to do the songs that you currently hear on the radio - no concern here - they're amazing - we were super impressed at how well they pull off those songs. We would highly suggest Ani to anyone!
