The Fever's musicians are extraordinary, and The Fever is NOT your ordinary party band! We love the music we play, we keep it fresh and fun, and we not only MC the entire event with sophistication, we also offer planning assistance in the days and months leading up to your big day. We are all full time musicians- playing music is our career, our lives and our passion!

Our sound is full, hip, and supremely polished. Whether you want elegant jazz for a refined Cocktail party, enticing funky beats and dance hits for a special celebration- or anything in between- The Fever will create a customized show for your entire event.

Our favorite clients are those who appreciate a variety of authentic and soulful music- we are real musicians who will play really fantastic music for you and your guests. No cheese here!

The Fever offers live music in almost any configuration- Solo/Duo/Trio/Quartet... on up to a 10-piece band! Our standard 7-piece band includes vocals, drums, bass, guitar, keys, hand percussion, saxophone, clarinet and a mean harmonica- with impressive leads & harmonies performed by two powerhouse female vocalists and great male singers. Want to add a little more sizzle? Bring in an additional horn player or two, to bring up the energy and get a fat horn section sound playing those signature lines from the songs your guests know and love. We even offer a percussionist, whose congas and percussion beats add that "can't help but dance" energy!

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?
50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, Acoustic, Big Band, Blues, Classic Rock, Classical, Country, Dance, Folk, Funk, Gospel, Hip Hop, Jazz, Motown, Oldies, Pop, Punk Rock, R&B, Reggae, Rock, Soul, Swing
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
What is your band's usual attire?
Musician's attire based upon client request & style of event. Standard attire for a wedding, for example, can be sophisticated cocktail attire to blend in with guests. Or, you may specific formal tuxedos & gowns, a particular color theme, or an edgier "club" type attire.
Do you offer live sample performances or CDs?
Yes. Please visit our Facebook.com/thefeverlive for upcoming public events. Visit our website (thefeverlive.com) for audio samples. Visit YouTube.com/thefeverlive for live video of the band playing live & real video reviews and commentary.
Are you willing to learn songs that you do not currently know?
Yes! The musicians are happy to learn a special song or two especially for your event.
How much time do you usually need for setup?
We prefer to be all set and stage looking beautiful by the time your guests arrive. Two to four hours set up time prior to guest arrival, depending upon the band size, event logistics and services provided (additional A/V support, breakaway live ensembles, set ups in multiple locations, lighting design, etc).
How much space do you usually require?
Depends on the size of the band or ensemble. Our 5pc and 6pc dance bands enjoy a 12'x16' stage area, but we have squeezed into some pretty small spots!
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
No. It's your event! We do not advertise at private events.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
Several levels of LED lighting packages for stage, dance floor and total room design. We also have an additional lighting tech we can bring on board for live engineering and design.
Do you usually emcee the event, or talk between songs?
We offer MC services. We will match our MC style to your preferences and the style of the event.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
This depends upon the hosts' preferences, which we will discuss in depth during the planning process. If guests are socializing, the musicians can either encourage folks onto the dance floor with vocal invitations or by switching genres and playing songs that will get guests excited to dance. The Fever's musicians are experts at reading the crowd. Sometimes guests really do want to socialize and catch up, and in some cases the musicians will play songs that are upbeat & have a "can't help but move" groove, but that are more mellow and funky. This provides a change in the dynamics so that when the band does kick it back into high gear, guests feel the change and jump onto the dance floor.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you need a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
The Fever is at your event to play, not to break. The length of live sets and the length of breaks depends upon the flow of your event. Cocktail & Dinner live music sets are normally about 60 minutes then the musicians break for about 15 minutes. 
 
 Typically clients do provide a meal for the musicians at the event, and this is the longest break of the night- usually about 20-25 minutes. In our planning process, we will discuss the most appropriate time for musicians to break for meals so that it fits smoothly into the event timeline. For wedding receptions, for example, a great time for musicians meals is after the guests have been served and during toasts. Sometimes, the best option is for musicians to take a meal before the start of the event, and then be served a snack about halfway through the event. We are very flexible and will work with you to choose the best option for your particular event.
Do you play recorded music during your break?
Yes. We may provide a playlist based upon your preferences, or you may share a Spotify playlist with us, or you may choose to provide us with an iPod. We will take care of playing recorded music at all appropriate times. 
If one or more of the band members is unable to attend, what is your backup plan?
The Fever can configure from solo on up to TWO separate 10pc bands! We have a large roster of core musicians, and a fantastic list of musicians "on the ready" should we ever need a sub.
What is your overtime rate?
Typically $50/musician per half hour. However, we may pre-arrange "overtime" in advance. This means that we still plan the same event end time, but if you choose to request overtime at the event, it is already paid, and discounted. This rate is $35/musician per half hour.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
Usually our travel expenses are included in our package costs. We don't really have an a la carte menu of services, but instead customize every live music package for each unique event. Lodging, if required, is not typically included in costs, but is provided for us by our clients. We may, however, add a lodging expense and then provide our own lodging.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
A $600 payment secures the date; within 30 days of booking, 50% of the total is due; the final balance is due 30 days before the date of your event. 
 
 Other payment arrangements may be made.

The Fever is absolutely amazing!! You get what you pay for and then some!! They become part of the wedding party as they are so personable. We could have danced all night!! Don't look any further if you want an amazing band. They have the capability of singing any song you want and killing it! Dad and Daughter special song from the 80's was perfect. Don't sell yourself short with a DJ. No one sat down all night. Everyone loved this band!! They are over the top! You won’t be disappointed, you will be thrilled! The people never stopped dancing. Michele and the band interacted with everyone to the point you really felt like they were part of the wedding party. Sounds corny but they knew the crowd and played off of them. Everyone raved about their ability to play any era, from the Dad/Daughters song to the latest and greatest hits. There is nothing like a live band, and this is the best I have ever heard! The icing on the cake (so to speak) is when Michele caught a very precious moment of my daughter and I dancing and singing together on the dance floor, with her cell phone, and she sent it to me. A precious gift no one else could give me! Who does that? They will be engaged with you and that is so important. Most of all they are fantastic entertainers! 10 stars out of 5!

The FEVER…thanks for the memories!!

Michele and The Fever are awesome!!! Michele was also very helpful in our planning process, and we really appreciated her insight. The music for our ceremony was beautiful, and the band learned a song that was meaningful to us for our first dance. They made our party such a blast, and everyone was out on the dance floor all night!

Thank you, Jess! We really had a wonderful time and are so honored to have been included in your wedding day. Hiring a band is such a big, important decision- the music certainly makes the party, and we had an absolute blast playing for your celebration! I really enjoyed getting to know you and Tommy, and helping to plan the music and flow of your special day! I'd love to see some fun pictures, if you'd like to share you can do that on our facebook/thefeverlive.com.

Cheers!

The Fever provided music for our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. It was all fabulous and they kept the crowd dancing all night long. Just a few weeks before the wedding we requested a new song for our first dance that was not on their playlist. To our surprise they learned it and performed it for us, rather than playing it off the ipod like we expected.

You simply cannot go wrong with this band/group of musicians. The party-goers knew every song they played, enjoyed the quality and range of sound, and danced into the night. The band was never too loud or out-of-touch. In all, they managed to be the centerpiece of a great party, with few demands - they have their act together.

We had The Fever band play at our wedding reception. Good band, great energy! Kept the dance floor full the entire evening. Stick to their playlist (it's huge and varied!) The band flubbed the lines and timing of our first dance song, which threw off our choreography. Other than that, we danced the entire night, and so did our guests! Their band manager is so professional, fun, and very easy to get a hold of and plan with. Their website is also very helpful and easy to navigate. Everything was professional and highly organized- a dream vendor for the D.I.Y. bride!
