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, Blues, Classic Rock, Country, Dance, Funk, Jazz, Motown, Oldies, Pop, R&B, Rock, Soul
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
What is your band's usual attire?
We dress just like our promo pictures. The guys wear all black with matching royal blue ties, and our female singer wears a black dress.
Do you offer live sample performances or CDs?
Yes, although our website has many song clips as well as a performance video.
Are you willing to learn songs that you do not currently know?
Our rate always includes learning two songs that are not on our set list. We can learn more than two for an additional fee.
How much time do you usually need for setup?
We usually arrive 2-3 hours before the guests arrive to complete set-up and do a thorough soundcheck.
How much space do you usually require?
It depends if we perform as a 5 or 6 piece band. We prefer at least a 16' X 16' performance area, but we are accommodating and can work within smaller space limitations.
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
We do have a banner, but if the client prefers that we don't use it, that's no problem at all, just let us know beforehand.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
We use all hi-tech LED lighting. Some we program with various sound activated chase scenes, and some on a solid color. We have a lighting controller to change colors/patterns instantaneously.
Do you usually emcee the event, or talk between songs?
Yes, we'll gladly serve as Master of Ceremonies free of charge. We occasionally talk between songs to engage the crowd, but we know we are there to play music and keep people on the dance floor!
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
We are professionals who have many years of performing experience. We know how to read crowds and we know the songs that will always get people on the dance floor! Plus we are an extremely fun, high-energy, entertaining band, which is contagious. We have a great time performing and that positive energy livens up the entire room and gets people moving!
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you need a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
We usually do three 15 minute breaks for a 4 hour performance. We require that the client provide us with a meal since we are usually at the venue setting up several hours before dinner and we wouldn't get a chance to eat otherwise.
Do you play recorded music during your break?
Yes, we always play recorded music on our breaks and will gladly play recorded music before we start (during cocktail hour or dinner) if you'd like.
If one or more of the band members is unable to attend, what is your backup plan?
We have top-notch, professional fill-in players for each band member in case they are unable to attend (which would be extremely rare). The fill-in players have all rehearsed and performed with the band previously.
What is your overtime rate?
$300 per hour.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
Yes, we charge for travel expenses, but how much we charge has several factors to consider: The distance/travel time, if we need to get lodging, if so, for how many nights?
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
Our usual deposit is $500. If we need to reserve hotels for an out of town performance, the deposit may be higher. We require a deposit and signed agreement to secure a date.

The Top Tier is simply amazing. They first performed at my brother’s wedding in October 2013 and were so great that there was no question that we would have them back for my wedding in November 2014. They performed live jazz during our cocktail hour and dinner and then raised the roof off during the dancing part of our reception and made it the most memorable event of our lives. The dance floor stayed packed the entire evening. They even let me join them on the keyboard for a song on stage, Journey’s Don’t Stop Believing! JD is also very responsive to phone calls and emails making sure that every little detail is covered.

Top Tier was great! We had them play at our Nashville, TN wedding. They sounded great and the guests enjoyed their upbeat personalities. Their music variety ranges from classic wedding songs like "We are family" and "Love Shack" to the present day hits like Hunter Haye's " Wanted" and Bruno Mar's "Treasure”. They even took time to learn two of my husband's and my favorites, "Happy" and " Beat of the Music". Guests got up and danced while our wedding party hit the stage with the band!

JD was great with corresponding throughout our engagement. He was on top of all our wedding details and MC'd the wedding with the timeline that we requested.

Top tier is a must HIRE!!

Top Tier was absolutely wonderful for my wedding! They kept the guest on the dance floor from the start of the reception through the very last song. I didn't want it to end! They even let a few guests who are in a band play their instruments on stage! I had never heard Top Tier in person before and we were blown away. I am still getting comments weeks later how fantastic they were. JD was very timely with his responses. Hopefully we'll see them again soon!! Thanks for a memorable evening.

Top Tier was absolutely fabulous!! JD was a pleasure to work with before the wedding. They have an extensive song list that covers music multiple decades, as well as many of today's top hits. By the end of the evening, everyone at the reception was on the dance floor! The whole band was so energetic and fun, and they even prompted a limbo contest under one of the guitars -- what a fun surprise! We received so many compliments from guests about how wonderful and engaging the band was. We knew that Top Tier would be a wonderful band, but they far exceeded our expectations and helped to make our wedding absolutely perfect. Thank you!!!

Top Tier completely blew us away at our wedding reception. We knew we were getting an amazing band for our wedding, but we had no idea that they would so absolutely fabulous. When planning our wedding, the most important component to us was our band. We were well aware that a band can make or break your reception. Top Tier actually brought our reception to the next level. Not only do they have amazing talent that can basically sing any song you could ever imagine, but they are engaging and have a way of making your reception the most memorable occasion for everyone involved. My husband and I were hoping for a fun-loving memorable night consisting of an amazing time with friends and family. Top Tier provided us a top notch night that is not only the most incredible memory for us, but our friends and family cannot stop talking about it.
