Q. How long do you typically play for?
A. Our standard time frame is a five hour wedding, but additional time can be arranged depending on the date, time and location of your party.
Q. How many breaks do you take?
A. We only take two breaks during a four hour party. Typically, we play our dinner set until the entrees have been served. If you’re having food stations or a buffet, we play until the majority of the guests have been served. We start our first dance set at about the time the tables are being cleared from dinner. After that we only take one fifteen minute break. THERE IS ALWAYS MUSIC PLAYING!!!
Q. What happens when the band takes a break? I don’t want my party to stop!
A. We provide music on all breaks and can program anything you’d like.
Q. I’m concerned about the volume of the band. How can we be sure that Bigg Romeo won’t be too loud?
A. We are EXPERTS at keeping the volume just right. During dinner we play a mix of standards, jazz and easy listening at a volume that allows your guests to carry on a conversation. After dinner we adjust the volume to an appropriate level for dancing.
Q. Our first dance isn’t on your song list. Will you learn a special request for us?
A. We’re happy to learn two or three songs as long as you provide us with a tape or CD no later than six weeks prior to the date of your party.
Q. Do I need to meet with the Band Leader?
A. The event planning can be done over the telephone and via mail, fax and e-mail. We can also meet upon request.
Q. How will you handle the flow of events, the introduction of the bridal party and the special dances?
A. You’ll receive a copy of our wedding worksheet in advance that allows you to specify how the day’s events will be handled. All of the members of Bigg Romeo are experienced at working with event coordinators, catering staff and other vendors, so you are ensured that the day will run according to your expectations.
Q. I’ve decided that I want Bigg Romeo as my band. What happens next?
A. We send you our Entertainment Agreement that clearly spells out the terms and conditions. The signed agreement with deposit must be returned to the band within 10 days of the issue date.
Q. Do you have any other helpful hints or suggestions?
A. Yes, here are a few: The tone of the party is most often set by the Bride & Groom. If you’re dancing and having fun, your guests will follow along and have fun too. While it’s appropriate to spend some time greeting your guests to thank them for attending, don’t forget to get out there and party! Our most successful receptions are those where the Bride & Groom lead the way! It’s your party – enjoy it!
Older guests are often very sensitive to sound, even at low volumes. Although volume is never an issue with Bigg Romeo , please consider the preferences of your guests. When creating your seating plan for the reception, be sure to seat the older guests away from the band. They’ll thank you for it!
Good planning and communication will enable us to do the best possible job of maintaining a smooth flow of events. Get all of your information to the band as early as possible, including your itinerary, wedding procedure form and any other special requests or dedications. If you have a special school song, sing-along or other unique song, please tell us a few weeks in advance. We know a lot of songs, but there are some that we don’t do or may not have the words for. If a song has a significant meaning to you, your family or your guests, please tell us early! We’ll learn it for you.
Finally, once you’ve finished your planning, relax and enjoy your wedding day! With Bigg Romeo , you can be assured that your entertainment will be the best that it can be!
