What Makes A Good Band?



What makes a band unique?

Have you ever wondered what makes a party or wedding band truly stand out? Below are some important points to keep in mind when you are looking for a band and want something more than the ordinary.

Performance energy

Production value

Versatility

Outstanding musicianship

Unique arrangements

Every cover band faces the same challenges. All are aiming to deliver a great party. The first factor is for every musician to care about what they play. One might think that comes naturally but the reality is all too often the opposite. The performance can even become a chore for some musicians.

Being exceptional every time has to be a top priority.

Versatility


The set we perform is very versatile. From a college ball to 75th birthday party we play it all and deliver a brilliant show every time no matter the audience or age!



Musicianship


All of us are experienced & professional musicians based in Cork with a high level of musical finese. We are all full time musicians and several of us are teachers in some of the top music institutions in Ireland. We lead by example.

Quality is of very high importance to us. Our setup includes multiple vocals, a full rhythm section with 2 guitars and 2 keyboards and brass (Saxophone). The band is frequently being appreciated for the versatile and huge sound when performing live.



Music Arrangements & Sound


Engaging directly with the crowd we will leave you wanting for more. We have worked out a flow to our set that will invite even the strongest dance pessimists to the dance floor.

We always include a professional sound engineer whereever we perform. This insures the best sound quality possible not leaving anything to chance while volume levels are frequently monitored as well.
