We offer demo CDs and DVDs.
Are you willing to learn songs that you do not currently know?
We will consider new songs, and can often learn them with no charge. If we need to rehearse and/or write an arrangement for the song, we will give you a price proposal for it.
How much time do you usually need for setup?
We need a minimum of two hours to set up.
How much space do you usually require?
We request a space of 16' x 24' for our 11-piece band, and a minimum of 12' x 20' for our 8-piece band.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
We can provide you a price proposal for lights.
Do you usually emcee the event, or talk between songs?
We are happy to emcee your reception. About three months before your wedding, we send you a questionnaire about the formalities and the music. We then set up a one- to two-hour planning meeting to work out all the details of your celebration. After the meeting, we email you a first draft of the timeline/script for your approval/corrections/revisions, and then make updates as details change in your schedule. You can then share this timeline with your personal coordinator, the coordinator at the location, your photographer, your videographer and any other interested parties.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you need a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
We request meals for the band, but do not require them. We encourge you to feed the band (vendor meals are acceptable) -- a band plays better on a full stomach!
Do you play recorded music during your break?
We can play CDs during your breaks. We also offer a DJ/band package.
What is your overtime rate?
We will provide overtime rates and all other rates over the phone.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
We have five different travel areas, based on distance from Downtown LA, and will review our travel rates with you over the phone.

Susie and her band are undeniably outstanding! She is rightfully noted as one of the best latin bands in Southern California but don't underestimate her ability to "sway your socks off" with all the other genres that she can play as well. When planning the evening Susie, I knew that she had everything under control and that I could sit back and enjoy the evening. There was no need to spend endless hours on the phone. She is a true professional and a real gem! My family and I cannot thank Susie and her band enough. She really made the entire event memorable for everyone who attended the wedding. For all those who are looking for a truly entertaining band with class and personality, give Susie a call.

This band is so great! They are pricey, but the dance floor was packed all night long. Because they play pretty much anything, they got a feel really fast for what people were dancing to and played that.
