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.

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 :) .

I found Mango Season 2 years before our wedding and totally fell in love with their music. I contacted them right away and reserved them. Annie did a great job communicating with me, giving suggestions and listening to what we want. They did a great job at our wedding. Our wedding was full of music from beginning to end. 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. Annie & Curtis are in love with each other and that comes through in everything from they're hands on service to their lovely music. We strongly recommend adding the base, he turned the beautiful duo into a sultry trio.

Loved it. I think the Ice Cube song went over well, too. ;-) Thank you for having us be a part of your day, we were honored. Love, Annie

When my husband and I first discovered Mango Season at a Wedding Cafe workshop, we immediately noticed the undeniable chemistry between Annie and Curtis and loved the "sun kissed" twist they added to every song they played. We knew we had to meet them. Our initial consultation with them felt more like a fun conversation with old friends rather than a business meeting. We quickly booked them (and we booked them early because we didn't want to lose them!) to perform for our ceremony, cocktail hour, and special dances. During the months, weeks and days leading up to our big day, Annie and Curtis went above and beyond to stay in touch with us and help us make sure every little detail was covered. Fast forward to our wedding day-- they flawlessly set the laid back, island-vibe tone that we were looking for. They put that Mango Season touch on every song we requested and everything sounded perfect. Our guests are still raving about them! Annie and Curtis are true professionals, and simply the best of the best. Our wedding day would not have been complete without them!

A wedding day goes by so fast but at the end of the day and the weeks and months that go past, you remember the highlights that always make you smile. Mango Season was one of those highlights! Their voices are incredible and so are their musical talents but their professionalism and responsiveness are bar none. Annie went out of her way to help us plan our destination wedding, and when I finally got to meet her in-person, I felt like I was meeting a friend and guest at our wedding. They nailed every song we requested that they learn and all my guests mentioned how much they loved their music.
Thank you, thank you, thank you! I've already recommended them to co-workers that are now planning their own Hawaiian wedding.

Jami + Tom ~ You took the words right out of my mouth! The moment I saw you step out of the house in your dress, I got all choked up because I knew all the little steps it took for you to have your wedding here in Hawaii. You worked hard to see your vision come through and to see it all come together so beautifully made me incredibly happy for you two! Thank you for inviting us into your family for the day. Big love and hugs from us ~ Annie

Annie and Curtis were incredible. We have worked together,for other clients,in the past and I always knew they were top notch. This time it was our wedding, and We really needed just to feel at ease that day. Mango season did exactly that. Sit back,relax and enjoy the day they said. We got this.

Well that is exactly what we did. Never had a worry with these two on our team. Perfect day, perfect vendors,and our perfect wedding.

Mango Season was perfect for our wedding the day of and leading up to it. I was in contact with Annie constantly about everything from out wedding set list to suggestions on the best nail salons to go to before the wedding. She responded to all of my emails/calls within 24 hours and throughout the planning process she was the easiest vendor to work with.

The day of the wedding our family members loved the laid back acoustic sound that Mango Season provided. They helped us set the tone for a perfect day and if we went back and did it again we would book Mango Season! They are worth every penny.

Laurie! So great to hear from you. I hope you and Brad are still enjoying your honeymoon. = ) At least stay in a paradise state-of-mind when you touch down in the snowy midwest.

We were so honored and the day really did turn out perfectly. You and Brad have something very special and heartfelt, and it was a beautiful, intimate day with just the right mix of sweetness, family, and good times. Even with the rain threatening, you picked THE PERFECT SPOT to tell your love story.

So much aloha and here's to creating beautiful new memories,

Annie and Curtis performed our ceremonial songs. Our songs were ku'u lei awapuhi by hapa, somewhere over the rainbow by IZ, and better together by jack Johnson. To be honest i was so charged with emotion that i didn't notice the music at all- nerves! but my family and friends said the songs were performed beautifully with a mango twist!

Annie and Curtis were a pleasure to work with. they are both husband and wife and its inspiring to see such a true love. Annie always got back to me very quick and checked in with me every now and then.

Simply put, they are great.

We loved meeting your family and your guests, and your friends who were the DJs after us were just awesome professionals with which to work. You were one of the loveliest people we have had the pleasure to know, and it was total honor to perform for you and Peter. Have the happiest of days together!

Annie is THE BEST! she was so helpful and prompt from first contact. It was so relieving to have found Mango Season and to be able to hire them for my wedding. Annie and her husband have amazing talent, and know how to work a wedding. Almost a year after my wedding (so sorry Annie & Curtis I am a terrible client for not reviewing you sooner), I still think of them and smile so big knowing they sang so good and entertained my guests, and were extremely patient with me. Annie you saved my sanity while I was trying to plan my wedding from across the ocean! you are awesome! your music is so much fun! I wish you the best!

I am so glad we could help you in ever aspect possible on your wedding day, and I hope you have had an incredible first year together. So much love and aloha to you both!

Mango Season was great to work with. Not only was their music fantastic but they were also highly professional and had every detail covered. They provided music for the ceremony, dinner, and reception. For the ceremony they played as an acoustic duo. For the dinner they played traditional Hawaiian music. And for the reception it was a full five piece dance band playing R&B/soul. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Between the rainbow during the ceremony, the whales breaching, sweet Koa walking down the aisle, and your awesome dance to "Let's Stay Together", your wedding rocked the casbah! We were honored to be invited to play your favorite music. Much aloha, Annie + Curtis

I had the opportunity to hear Mango Season play as a private show at my families house as a surprise. Curtis and Annie were very flexible and accommodating in pulling off the surprise concert. They are both very friendly and we all felt at ease welcoming them into our house. The music was incredible. They play a wide variety of music and took any requests we had. They would make any event unforgettable!
