Weddings:

Stormy performs at 45-50 receptions each year, so we know what it takes to give your party the WOW factor! Please don’t think we are the typical “Wedding Singer” band. Yes, we do start easy with big band jazz, background music, while your guest arrive. After the bride-groom / wedding party dances, we play dance music, that will hit all ages, and by the end of the night, it’s a PARTY BAND. Most of the time, (depending on the reception) we send the horns into the crowd and might even get some of your guest on stage with the band. Stormy likes to interact with your guest on and off the dance floor and will not be satisfied until you and your guest has as much fun as the band.



Note: See link below, questions to ask, before you book a band.

Corporate Events:

Stormy is a great fit for high-end corporate evnets where only the best bands are considered. If you're in charge of finding and booking entertainment for an important upcomming event and you're only interested in the best, you found it. We promise to make your job easy..

Conventions:

Some conventions will book different entertainment for several nights. If needed we use 3 - 5 band members the first night (called Partly Cloudy band, part of Stormy with different song list) and on the big event or finale,add the rest of the band and the horn section, you now have Stormy. Since both bands use same equipment, if same venue is used, this will cut down on set up time and travel expense for the client. Need a duo or just a piano player for the first night, we can do that too. Book Stormy now! Read less

Yes, at our site.
Are you willing to learn songs that you do not currently know?
95% of the time, yes. Depending on the song and how much time it will require for band to learn.
How much time do you usually need for setup?
We like to have 2 hours so we have a little buffer in case of equipment problems. We can make it happen at most venues in 1 hour.
How much space do you usually require?
We have 8 band members. Sound system, keyboards, bass, drums and guitar take up the space. Female vocalist, and 3 horns only take up people space, so not much more room that smaller bands. We can fit just about anywhere.
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
Large baner at clubs, casinos and outdoor events.
 At receptions and corporate events, we have small banners that hang from horn music stands with band logo. Bass drum also has small band logo.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
We can make it happen for a small extra fee. We do carry our own stage lights for band.
Do you usually emcee the event, or talk between songs?
Yes... We keep the music going for several songs in a row. When we do stop, we will talk and interact with crowd and make announcements when needed.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
Slow songs played at the correct time of evnet, will start the large part of the guest dancing. We will entertain the guest until they are ready, and we can change the style of music to get the party started.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you need a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
In a normal 3 hour reception, we will take 1 break. Four hour, 2 brreaks. Client is not required to feed the band, but it is appreicated. It will also keep the band members from leaving property after set up to hunt down food in the area.
Do you play recorded music during your break?
Yes, if needed.
If one or more of the band members is unable to attend, what is your backup plan?
That is rare with Stormy! Several band members play more than one instrument. We do have past band members that can fill in if needed. Everyone in the band can sing, so vocals are never a problem.
What is your overtime rate?
Depends on how far we travel to the event. Most of the time $400. to $600. per 1/2 hour if in the Gulf Coast area.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
When we give a price, it's complete. All travel expenses are included unless noted in contract.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
Amount of deposit depends on how far we are traveling. In our area, as little as $500.00 and signed contract is fine. If we are flying cross country, we would require half of the contract price in advance.

All three of our children had Stormy for their wedding receptions! They are so impressive we would not even consider another band! They keep the guests entertained and involved in all the special events of the evening. They provide a variety of music that appeals to all guests and learned the first dance song that was not on their list. Professional but so much FUN!

The band Stormy recently played at my wedding reception and they were phenomenal! The one thing I wanted was for all of my guests, young and older, to dance the whole night and Stormy made that happen. The dancing of the guests started after the first dances and continued until the reception was over. Stormy was great to work with! They were very prompt in responding to my emails and phone calls and were reasonably priced as well. They even learned my husband and I's first dance song (which was not a traditional one)...this really meant a lot to us that they were able to play it. I would highly recommend Stormy for any occasion. They cater to all ages and definitely engage the crowd. One of the reasons my reception was so successful was due to this band. So many of my guests complemented me on my choice of bands and informed me that Stormy was one of the best they've ever heard. Thanks Stormy for being so wonderful to work with and making my wedding night even more perfect!

Thank you, Stormy for such a memorable night playing for our wedding!
My husband and I got married this year and Stormy was the band selected for our special day. Stormy was such a hit! The music was perfect and their desire to make the bride and groom feel special and celebrated was evident through their desire to play songs/genre that was requested, and they definitely made sure we were having fun throughout the night. What a great group--I have some of my favorite pictures and memories that all happened because of them. :)
Also, SO many people have shared with our family what a great band we had and how much fun they had at the reception. Thank you, again Stormy!

We. had. a. blast. Working with Stormy and then partying with them at the wedding was just awesome. Both being from PA and living in DC...New Orleans was a destination wedding for us. Michael was amazing to work with and never hesitated to pick up the phone and call us when we had questions or as the date got closer.

They learned 3 new songs for our "special dances" which truly meant so much to us as the songs were special to us and our parents. When it came time to get our guests out on the dance floor there was no problem there. The range of songs this band can play is amazing and they had us dancing and singing all night long!!

What a talented, fun and all around great band. Our guests are still talking about how much they loved Stormy!!

Stormy was AMAZING! They definitely made the reception! I am picky when it comes to sound quality and entertainment, and Stormy did not disappoint! Not only did they sound amazing, they interacted with the crowd and kept people dancing all night! They have a great music selection, and they are very professional and easy to work with! If you are looking for a band, Stormy is the one you should go with!

I could not believe how BIG their song list is! They worked with me to help me pick my songs, and made that whole process stressfree! We had a blast dancing the night away to hits from the 70s all the way to the most current dance hits. I loved that I didnt have to worry about a thing! All my guests commented on how much they loved the band! They play something for everyone!!! Thanks Stormy!

We first heard this band at a friend's wedding and knew we had to have them at ours (even before we were engaged)! They were very accomodating playing anything we wanted from rock to top 40 to country, etc. They are all exceptionally talented, provided great entertainment and made the reception a BLAST! We received so many compliments on our great choice of bands and we couldn't have been happier! I even booked them a month later for a corporate party, where they were excellent as well.

I think almost everyone that was at the wedding reception has asked me how to contact this band. They were great. Mike was easy to contact & set-up times with. They knew every song that was requested & seemed to have as much fun as we did.

Stormy was fantastic!!! Our guests had the best time. They didn't want the reception to end. This band is top notch. The musicians were so very talented and their song selections were perfect. Our daughter and her friends are 25-28 years old and the music was perfectly appropriate for their age group, as well as the next generation. Great variety of music, wonderful horns, guitars, drums, and the vocals...awesome! They also were great crowd pleasers. I loved working with Michael Noto. This band was perfect. One of my friends has already asked for their contact information!!!
