INFO FOR BAND

Are you an agency or a band?
Band
What is the size of your band?
Large (6+ musicians)
What music genre does your band play?
50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, Classic Rock, Country, Funk, Hip Hop, Jazz, Latin, Motown, Oldies, Pop, R&B, Reggae, Rock, Soul, Swing
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
What is your band's usual attire?
Formal
Do you offer live sample performances or CDs?
Yes. We do regular performance showcases where potential clients can see and hear us in person. Never hire a band without seeing them first
Are you willing to learn songs that you do not currently know?
We will learn up to two songs not on our current song lists for each affair we play.
How much time do you usually need for setup?
Ideally two hours. Often when clients are having the ceremony at the venue this isn't possible. In these cases we arrive before your guests, hide our equipment within close proximity and set up in under 1 hour.
How much space do you usually require?
We've done birthday parties for 25 people and political events for thousands. No event is usual. We've made the tightest spaces work when we've had to. 20 by 14ft is ideal but we've made 16 by 8ft work in a corner.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
Kahootz is self contained. We bring a state of the art sound system with wireless microphones and a top notch system for lighting the band.
Do you usually emcee the event, or talk between songs?
Time in between songs should be minimal. Your guests are there to dance and have an exceptional time celebrating you and your day. We MC an event in the most professional unobtrusive fashion possible.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you need a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
Yes. And yes.
Do you play recorded music during your break?
Yes.
What is your overtime rate?
Please call as it varies on the season
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
Yes. Please call as it depends on the season

Working with Kahootz was one of the best decisions we made in planning our wedding. From start to finish they were easy to work with, straight forward, responsive, and fun. Most importantly though, they absolutely rocked the night of our wedding. We gave Chris a rough idea of our likes (and a LOT of our dislikes) and he created the perfect set list. The band sounded unbelievable and people of all ages were on the dance floor the whole night. I actually wish we had a recording of their version of our first dance song (by Otis Redding) because I loved it so much. They were also able to work with the hotel to manage the entire reception schedule so myself, my husband, and our families didn't have to worry about a thing.

At the end of the night, our friends were on the floor chanting "one more song". I think that says it all!!

Chris Cole and Kahootz are absolutely outstanding! Our biggest hope for our reception was that people would get out on the dance floor early and stay there all night long. In addition to keeping the party going, they were incredibly flexible in terms of learning a couple of obscure songs for the special dances early in the evening in order to please our parents and grandparents. We have heard again and again from friends and family in the month since we got married about how amazing our band was and how engaging they were with our crowd. The singers frequently joined the party on the dance floor and pushed the energy over the top. We cannot underscore enough how pleased we were to have this amazing band perform on our special evening and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone for whatever the occasion.

Where do I begin...Kahootz was absolutely phenomenal and exceeded our expectations!! When my fiance and I began wedding planning we started with venue and band knowing that these 2 items were the most critical. That being said, I don't think either of us realized how significantly the band impacts the overall wedding experience. The music and band are essential to the spirit of the wedding and Kahootz is the best at reading the vibe of the crowd and making your wedding not just a special day for the newlyweds but, also for everyone else at the reception. They infuse even more fun into a day that is already incredible. On top of their amazing talent as a band, they are extremely professional and are there to support your wedding dream. In short, there are so many members of my family who would normally be very content sitting and watching everyone else dance but, with Kahootz as our wedding band, even these family members were dancing the night away!!! My fiance and I feel so lucky to have had Kahootz as the band at our wedding!

The band Kahootz is amazing! We attended a wedding where they were the band and we knew once we got engaged that they were the band we wanted. Every single one of our guests could not stop talking about how amazing they were. It was one of the best choices we made for our wedding, if you are looking for an amazing band to dance all night they are it!

My hotel and photographer recommended Kahootz to me. We checked them out at a showcase they did at elephant and castle and immediately signed them up. Chris was fantastic to work with and we had a great meeting with him a week before the wedding to go over all the details. We said no line dances and no country and he did exactly that! Not one song was played that we didn't like. Everyone was on the dance floor the whole night and I am still hearing from our guests how amazing the band was. It is definitely worth the money to have a band or move your wedding date to get Kahootz! They will take your wedding to the next level! A friend at the wedding who lives out of state booked them for her December wedding and hadn't even heard them and was beyond excited about how great they were! My cousin used them in April and my other cousin who recently was engaged hopes to book them as well! A real crowd pleaser - you will not regret this decision!!!

We had Kahootz play at our daughter's recent wedding and they were absolutely terrific. From the first dance to the last one, they played the music that kept everyone on the dance floor, and I could easily see our guests really getting into the music. I absolutely loved their singers mixing in with the guests on the dance floor and getting them to participate in some of the older time music and the newer, contemporary songs.

This is the second time we've had Kahootz play at one of my daughter's wedding, and if I had another daughter, I would absolutely hire them again!

There were a lots of things that made the wedding memorable, and Kahootz was definitely at the top of that list.

Kahootz was fantastic. We had multiple guests state that this was the "best wedding band ever"--and we agree!

K2 is amazing! In addition to being energetic and fun to work with, they are insanely talented. Our vision for the wedding reception was to have all our guests -- from kids to grandparents -- on the dance floor all night, and K2 delivered. Our wedding guests are still emailing us to rave about K2 and to ask for their information. We are genuinely grateful for all that they did to create such a memorable evening for us.

Band manager Chris Cole was a dream vendor to work with. He responded to emails quickly, offered to learn songs outside the band's song list, gave valuable advice about reception details, and just generally put me at ease throughout the entire planning process.

My recommendation of K2 could not more be enthusiastic. Thank you all!

Kahootz totally rocked our Cape Cod wedding and made a special night even more memorable. From the seamless prep meeting to the day-of, the entire band made a busy and stressful planning process so easy. We loved that you came into the crowd to get our guests involved and made them feel like total rock stars and the dance floor was packed the entire night. In fact, all of our guests were raving that you were the best band they had ever heard at a wedding -- a few even hit you up for your business cards for future events!

Band manager Chris Cole was a dream to work with. He was incredibly organized, professional and most of all, wanted Kahootz' performance to be as memorable as possible.

Choosing Kahootz was one of the best decisions we made throughout the entire wedding planning process, and I would recommend Kahootz to anyone looking for a super high-energy band!
