What a bride and groom need to know
Q – How far out should a client pay a deposit to secure your services?
A – The most popular dates book as far as 18 months in advance.
Q – What is included when a client books your service?
A – We offer musical services for every element of the event, including cocktails, dinner, and dance. We can even play for the ceremony if needed. I serve as The Master Of Ceremonies and direct the flow of the event. The Chuck Taylors offer unlimited hours of service, no maximum. Of course, we include instruments and sound system.
Q – How do you help clients customize their service?
A – A local wedding planner once dubbed The Chuck Taylors as ‘Yes, we can do that’ band, as we are game for just about anything. We are willing to customize song lists, learn songs, assist with surprises, you name it, we will do it.
A little more about The Chuck Taylors
Q – Tell me about your favorite client
A – Wow, this is a tough one. We recently had a client whose family is very musical and, of course, we wanted to include everyone possible. So, throughout the night, we invited the family members to join us. At one point, there were 14 people on stage with us. It was great.
Q – What’s one interesting fact about The Chuck Taylors
A – We had a client who requested a 30 minute Hora (Hava Nagilah). We played a medley of Klezmer music for 37 minutes straight. I’m fairly certain it is a world record, but we never followed up with Guinness to verify.
Q – What makes The Chuck Taylors unique?
A – Good question. We play non-stop, with no down time between songs, much like a DJ. Our dance sets are sometimes 3 hours – with no break – with lots of mash ups and medleys. While we work from a list of “Love It, Hate It” provided by the client, we never use predetermined song lists. Instead, we play music for the crowd in front of us at the time. Oh, and we take requests most of the night, too.
Q – What do you have planned for the future?
A – To keep entertaining and keep making the musics.
