Ron Bedal, pianist, saxophonist, composer and arranger, has been one of the Midwest’s premier bandleaders performing at corporate events, charity galas and remarkable weddings for over 20 years. He understands the importance of the music in creating and enhancing the perfect atmosphere for a special occasion and his passion has not only been to create music of real excellence that is high-energy, entertaining, and of course great fun to dance to, but more importantly, “calling” a great party. This ability has been one of the key factors that has kept clients, event planners, and industry professionals calling us, as well as referring our services to others.” Read less

Yes
What is your band's usual attire?
Tuxedo...although we do vary the "look" based on the clients preferences.
Do you offer live sample performances or CDs?
Most engagements we perform at are private parties. Periodically, depending on the function, we can make arrangements for clients to see us.
Are you willing to learn songs that you do not currently know?
Yes
How much time do you usually need for setup?
between one and two hours depending on the event and logistics
How much space do you usually require?
at least 24' x 12'
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
never ... unless requested. In fact, I dislike the name of the band leader on the bandstands. I prefer more of a "concert" look with a limited number of music stands.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
we supply our own lighting if needed
Do you usually emcee the event, or talk between songs?
I emcee the event. The amount of interaction is based on the clients preferences. I don't talk between songs because it interrupts the flow on the dance floor.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
If no one is dancing, that generally means that the wrong music is being played for that point in the evening is being played. Rarely have we had that problem.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you need a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
Most events are of a continuous/rotating nature. Meals are only suggested for five members when we are providing ceremony/cocktail receptions/ dinner and dancing entertainment.
Do you play recorded music during your break?
We normally use a continuous music format.
If one or more of the band members is unable to attend, what is your backup plan?
Never have had a problem there. In over 20 years in the industry, I have a massive list of qualified musicians and vocalists.
What is your overtime rate?
Varies on the number of performers
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
$100.00 - $500.00 per person depending on the location
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
15%

I can not say enough about Ron Bedal and his Orchestra!

They rocked the house! Our guests were dancing from the first note, to the last! Even those who never get up and dance, were on the dance floor!
The talent of every single member in this orchestra is incredible!
There is not one style of music that they don't master...

All evening, people were complimenting them, and asking us for their contact info.
If you are lucky enough to book them for your event, you will never regret it!

There was no doubt in my mind that my wedding would not be complete without a live band. Seeing Ron Bedal and his Orchestra at a wedding a few years back, I just knew that they were all I ever wanted when it was my time to get married. PERFECTION! Ron was able to work with us to meet all of our expectations from beginning until end of the reception. Ron is the best leader as well as MC that put wonderful touches on everything! The vocal talent as well as the musicians was something out of an award show or an episode of ‘Dancing with the Stars’! Everyone RAVED about it and still do...I'm sure feet are still hurting from the non-stop dancing all night long! No matter what the age group, Ron and his Orchestra know how to read the room and keep the party flowing...my husband and I want another milestone so we can get them again to perform!!! You cannot go wrong with Ron Bedal and his Orchestra, we highly recommend using your budget for them and SKIP the boring usual D.J.

Ron and his Orchestra were excellent at our New Year's Eve wedding. Guests are still commenting on how wonderful the band was. Ron was instrumental in helping us pick out both our ceremony music and what to play at the reception. We had a wide age range of guests (80's down to 5), so keeping them all dancing was an amazing feat. We were very happy to have chosen them for our special day.
