INFO FOR BAND

Are you an agency or a band?
Band
What is the size of your band?
Medium (4-6 musicians)
What music genre does your band play?
50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, Dance, Funk, Motown, Oldies, Pop, R&B, Rock, Soul
Do you have liability insurance?
No
What is your band's usual attire?
We dress appropriately according to the event. For outdoor concerts or parties, and less formal receptions, we would normally dress in black dress slacks with black dress shirts, and our lady vocalist would dress in a casual party outfit. For more formal events, we wear dress slacks, dress shirts, and tuxedo vests with matching ties and our lady vocalist would dress in a cocktail dress or pant suit. 
 
Do you offer live sample performances or CDs?
Yes
Are you willing to learn songs that you do not currently know?
With sufficient advance notice, after review of any requested song(s), we will learn up to three (3) special songs for a wedding reception or two (2) songs for any other private event. All special requested songs, that are not on our song list, must be communicated to us a minimum of 60 days before the event. Depending on the style of the music, the instrumentation, the phrasing and other important characteristics of the song, we reserve the right to decline to learn any particular song for live performance by our band. In such instances, you may pick a different song, or we will play a recording of your preferred tune over our PA from a CD that you provide. Other than these special tunes requested in advance, we are usually not able to play special requests. If a client or guest requests a song that we know and regularly perform, but was not included in our set list for that particular performance, we will do our best to fit that requested song into the set list before the end of the performance. We will be happy to provide you a copy of our current song list, and if there are songs that you would prefer not be included in the performance list for your event, we would certainly honor your wishes in that regard. We value our professional reputation and take pride in our work, and will discuss any concerns, questions, or ideas to make your event a complete success.
How much time do you usually need for setup?
Two to Three Hours
How much space do you usually require?
Our preferred/requested performance space, if available, is an area that is 30 ft. long (across the front) x 15 ft. deep (front to back), BUT we can fit into a smaller area if necessary. Minimum footprint required would be approximately 20 ft. long (across the front) x 12 feet deep (front to back). It is usually preferable for the sound and sight lines of a performance for that area to be provided on a stage or stage risers, BUT we can set up for private events such as weddings or birthday parties at the same floor level as the dance floor, so neither a stage or risers are a necessity. If you have any concerns about available floor space, please contact us and let us visit your venue with you to take a look. 
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
Yes. Plan B displays two small (30 inch x 22 inch) professional looking Plan B logo banners to hide our speaker poles on stage. We would be more than happy to provide photos of our stage banners upon request. We would honor any request for us not to display stage banners at your event.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
Yes, we have multiple LCD light systems
Do you usually emcee the event, or talk between songs?
Yes, we do make announcements, introduce the wedding party and/or bride and groom, or announce such things as cutting the cake, bouquet and/or garter toss, special toasts or departure of the bride and groom, as requested by the client. We also can provide a microphone if a client prefers to have this done by a friend or family member, or for things such as remarks or toasts by friends or family members. 
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you need a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
Depending on circumstances, this is not an absolute necessity, but it is normally requested for performances longer than 2 hours. Please understand that to prepare for a three or four hour performance, a good portion of our band will arrive at the performance venue to move in and set up equipment as much as 3-1/2 to 4 hours before the start of the performance. Afterwards, it normally takes approximately an hour to an hour and a half to take down, pack up and load out the equipment, so a 4 hour performance amounts to approximately a 10-hour work day for most of our band. Food becomes an important factor in a good performance, but we will be happy to work with you in any way possible to minimize the impact on the budget for your event
Do you play recorded music during your break?
Yes
If one or more of the band members is unable to attend, what is your backup plan?
We have professional sub musicians available.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
After we reach an agreement for a performance, we will prepare a contract based on that verbal agreement and forward it to our client (you), along with a self-addressed, stamped envelope and a copy of the contract for your records. The client (you) would then sign and date the original copy of the contract and return it to us by mail in the envelope provided, Along with the contract, the client (you) would enclose a check for the (non-refundable) deposit for the (your) event. This deposit amount is specified in the contract, and is normally 20% of the agreed performance fee. After payment of the deposit, the balance of our fee is due at the time of/on the date of the contracted event.

Attention! If I had it to do over again, I would BEG The Plan B Band to perform for us. They were phenomenal and more than anticipated. They bent over completely backwards to change my wedding date by two months, including leaving work early to be able to set up on a Friday.

WHO ELSE WOULD DO THAT?

Everyone loved the band. In fact, they wouldn't stop talking about them. The venue director actually collected their info to pass out to future brides. I wish I could have sat back and enjoyed the music more myself. As a side note, if you are debating on including the female vocalist, DO SO. She adds some sass and her voice is killer. She nailed my first dance "Home" by Chantal.

Thank you again for everything Plan B, a million times!

Plan B was amazing! They got everyone, even my grandparents out on the dance floor! I especially appreciated that they learned to play 3 special songs for the first dance, mother/son, and father daughter dances. I have already recommended them to a friend who just got engaged!

I found Plan B online and from the minute I made contact with them I was very impressed. They were COMPLELELY PROFESSIONAL in every aspect of working with our wedding reception. Not only did they provide the fantastic entertainment at our reception, they walked us through how to schedule the different aspects of the reception. The main contact was very willing to offer help when needed or let us take charge where we needed. Then once the reception started -- they created the magic that made the evening a wonderful event for my husband and I and everyone that came. It's over a month later and I am still getting compliments about the reception. Everyone felt free to dance and party. Looking back at the pictures you can see that the dance floor was packed the whole night and everyone is laughing and having a great time. The band's electricity sparked the everyone else's electricity and then blended together for a great night. The band was hot the whole evening -- never let down. Our group of friends is very diverse -- with half our friends in their twenties to thirties and the other half in their fifties to sixties -- and then all ages sprinkled in. Everyone said, this was the best wedding reception ever!!! We will be using them again for other events in the future.

The Plan B Band made our wedding reception! Our guests absolutely loved them. Even two months after the reception, people are still telling us how great they were. Plan B plays everything from Frank Sinatra to Adele, which really catered to our guests different ages and preferences. They kept everyone on the dance floor all night. The band contact person was easy to work. He was very prompt in responding to our questions and the band learned two special songs for our Grand Entrance and First Dance. They were on time, extremely professional, and great with interacting with our guests. I highly recommend them and can't thank them enough!
