Congratulations on your engagement!

We are the husband and wife duo behind the island soul/jazz group Mango Season and we have a love story that lives on in our music, and in the performances we provide our fabulous wedding couples.

We remember fondly looking for music for our own wedding, and we understand you want to find the right groove for all of your various guests. Mixing west coast 70's pop with soul and jazz, layering on classic island grooves with lush harmonies, Mango Season's sound is a backyard dance party, smoky lounge club, hot Hawaiian night, and chronicle of good times all bottled into one! You can customize your music mix from our set of classical, pop, contemporary Hawaiian, soul, slack key, jazz latin, and we will learn a special song to suit a particular moment, first dance, walk down the aisle - whatever is appropriate for your day.

We have professional backgrounds not only in music but event planning and customer service, and we pride ourselves on being able to give our clients the best attention to every detail of your day. Our sound reinforcement system can be included in some packages. We provide music for all portions of your wedding: rehearsal dinner, pre-ceremony, ceremony, reception/cocktail hour, dinner music and dance party. We also offer emcee services and limited DJ services.

Call us today for a consultation! Aloha, ~Annie Curt

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?
70s, 80s, Acoustic, Blues, Dance, Folk, Funk, Jazz, Latin, Pop, R&B, Reggae, Soul, World
Do you have liability insurance?
No
What is your band's usual attire?
For more formal events/weddings: The men dress in black shirt/slacks/tie + our female lead singer in more of a colorful dress, often a vibrant but tasteful aloha print.
 
 For beach or more relaxed weddings/event: The men dress in a tasteful neutral color-based aloha print shirt with khaki slacks with our female lead singer in a slightly more vibrant dress, again a tasteful aloha print.
 
 Please do not hesitate to ask if you would like us to dress or accent our dress in a color scheme of your choosing.
 
 
 
 
Do you offer live sample performances or CDs?
Yes, we offer both live sample performances and we also have a sample EP of our music that we can ship to you, or that you can download from iTunes, Amazon or CD Baby.
Are you willing to learn songs that you do not currently know?
Absolutely! We will learn 1 to 2 new songs depending on how close we are to the actual wedding or event date. We also have an extensive set list of 100+ songs we know + our recommended processional/recessional lists for or brides and grooms.
How much time do you usually need for setup?
Full PA System: 1 hour set-up time at the minimum.
 Small PA System: 1/2 hour set-up time at the minimum.
 Travel PA (used for beach ceremonies): 10 minute set-up time at the maximum.
 
 
How much space do you usually require?
Full Band (Quartet/Quintet): 20' feet x 10' feet space
 Trio: 10' feet x 10' feet space 
 Solo/Duo: 8' feet x 8' feet space
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
We do not normally use a sign or banner. We do have a small merchandise display with a full-size band poster that we use more at casual events or if allowable by our wedding/event clients.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
We offer the rental of our full or small PA system.
Do you usually emcee the event, or talk between songs?
We can offer you both. We include our emcee services in the price of the performance cost. Also, there is some natural conversation with the audience between songs; however, if you prefer the band simply play music and be more "ambient" music, we are happy to accommodate your wishes.
 
 In addition, if you already selected an emcee, we can provide your emcee with a microphone, stand and other equipment he/she may need. We can discuss all of these details with you beforehand.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
We mostly leave this decision up to the discretion of our clients. In the past, when we were asked to provide a full dance party band, and with the approval of the client, we will save a set of danceable songs for such a lull, rocking songs that span generations like "Brown Eyed Girl," and one of our performers goes out onto the dance floor to begin the dance party. Or, there are often musicians in the audience - identified prior by the bride/groom or event coordinator - and we invite them up to sit in with us on one or two songs. Even if the friends or family are just "karaoke masters," the audience gets into this moment and dancing starts up immediately. We always suggest the latter because it becomes your moment, a unique moment that you can capture on film and video and share with your family and friends.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you need a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
We generally take a 5-10 minute break every hour and a longer 20-30 minute meal break if a meal is provided. However, we follow the program you provide us so this may mean that we take breaks at different intervals, not necessarily every hour.
 
 Our clients are under no obligation to feed our band. Of course, we always appreciatively accept a meal.
Do you play recorded music during your break?
Yes. We have standard playlists that fit the particular ambience of each portion of your program -or- you can select a unique playlist of your own that we will gladly play.
If one or more of the band members is unable to attend, what is your backup plan?
Depending how close we are from the actual wedding or event, we would either replace that member with another local musician of comparable musical ability -or- find another band completely to take our place at the agreed upon rate. We are associated with several other bands that we would gladly recommended and we would take care of all the logistics to make sure the transition for you would be seamless. 
What is your overtime rate?
Our overtime rate is the same as our hourly rate (i.e. for our solo vocalist/acoustic guitarist, our rate is $300 per hour. We would charge our overtime rate at this same rate). About 1/2 hour before the end of the performance time originally purchased, our booking manager would discuss with the event or wedding coordinator whether or not the event will go over, and then plan accordingly time and payment. We never charge an overtime rate, nor do we play past our allotted time, unless it is verbally agreed upon between the band and the client on the day of engagement.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
If travel is required, we offer two options for travel costs:
 
 Client handles all travel arrangements (air/ground/hotel/per diem/equipment transport): Client responsible for all costs and we only charge our performance fee.
 
 Mango Season handles all travel arrangements: We would charge our performance fee + travel expenses (based on most conservative travel & equipment rental costs available) + a labor fee.
 
 
 
 
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
50% of the agreed upon fee is due upon signing of our engagement contract to formally hold the date for your wedding or event.

We were very happy to have Mango Season perform at our wedding. The experience was great from the first consultation to our wedding day. Annie was very prompt in answering our questions. She would send out reminders as the wedding get closer to ask us details of our wedding such as the type of music we wanted to play and our timeline. She also worked with our venue manager and event coordinator to make the wedding day worry free. They are also very accommodating in fitting our budget needs.

The duo (Curtis and Annie) was great during our cocktail hour and dinner. Their rendition of our First Dance song that we personally choose was better than the original! If you have an opportunity, you need to hire the full band!! The full band performed the dancing portion of our reception and we didn't regret one bit. Definitely recommend to anyone who wants to have a fun time :)

See Ming + Jessica ~ You two are so lovely. I think from the first consultation, I couldn't wait to work with YOU! We had a blast at your wedding and everything, from the speeches to the first dance to the food, you did with impeccable taste and pizazz. It was a complete reflection of your two dynamic personalities. We wish you all the love and luck in the world (and the cocktail is on us the next time we see you at our gig!). Much aloha ~ Annie + Curt

Annie and Curtis of Mango Season Music are absolutely wonderful! I heard about Mango Season through a music showcase workshop at The Wedding Cafe. For our wedding, we weren't originally thinking of having live music, but when we saw Mango Season perform at the workshop, we knew we had to contact them! Annie is incredibly professional, down-to-earth, and easy to work with. She was responsive to all of our questions and concerns, and really provided us with a sense of calm - not easy to do when planning a wedding! Annie also provided emcee services during our reception, which took so much hassle and stress out of our hands. And as far as the music provided - they were top notch! Many of our guests told us that the music was fantastic and asked how we heard about Mango Season. I would definitely recommend Mango Season for your event. By the end of it all, it really felt like they were our friends and we've known them for years. I was sad to have to say goodbye!

With the planning of our wedding and on the day of, Mango Season was the perfect choice. During every phase of the planning they where there to answer all questions and help put our mind at ease. They were very helpful in organizing the whole wedding from start to finish and making sure that our choices and opinions mattered. We loved their music, with my wife and myself having multiple guests comment on how they were and awesome band and the perfect choice for our wedding. If you are looking for a band who provides that Island feel to your wedding I would look no further.

Mike + Alexa ~ Seriously, was that not the best wedding ever (don't ruin the moment by saying that's the only time you've ever been to a wedding/been married...hah!)?! We had a BLAST start to finish, and yours and Alexa's humor, wit, sweetness, and relaxed nature just made us look forward to spending the weekend with you. Beautiful location, even more beautiful bride, great family and friends, and just a touching moment to share with you both. Enjoy nothing but good times, great oldies, and that infectious humor that elevates your relationship from good friends to meant for each other. An abundance of aloha and cheer ~ Annie + Curt

Mango Season was very helpful and supportive throughout the planning process. they were highly professional and kept in constant contact though phone meetings and online questionnaires so that they may better serve us.
during the event they were prompt and communicated with us as well as with our other vendors to make the night run smooth. they were truly excellent and made the atmosphere of our wedding so much fun with their music.
They even sent us a thank you note after the wedding, which was a pleasant surprise. It added more points to an already glowing recommendation of them :) .

They provided everything we hoped for and more.

My dearest Ice ~ I am so sad it's all over! I couldn't believe it when your day finally arrived and I thought, "Wait...no more fun, late night conversations about the set list, and that gorgeous dress, and how awesome your night would be?! NO!!!!" I wish you and Tetsuya so much happiness - you picked such a great fella. And your family! ADORE THEM! The dancing at the end was classic and such a fitting way to end the night. So much love to you both! ~ Annie

Mango Season is the best! They were a phenomenal addition to our reception... Their presence added a certain warmth to our atmosphere and enhanced the romance in the air.
