|Corporate planners – please take a moment to read this before inquiring about Sandy Vine and The Midnights for your next corporate event:
How long have you been performing?
Sandy Vine And The Midnights is now in its 25th year of performance having done thousands of events over the years including corporate parties, weddings, casinos, festivals and numerous private parties.
Do you have backup equipment? What happens if one of your musicians gets sick?
We have access to a backup audio system if for some reason something were to go wrong. Rest assured that we do maintain our quality equipment and in 25 years of performing have never had a system go down.
Our band carries the same tight group of musicians to all functions. However musicians are human and can become ill, or have rare unavoidable matters come up that may prohibit them from performing. We have access to the best musicians in our area and if necessary will replace a sick musician with another experienced performer who will do an excellent job and fit in seamlessly.
In all the years of performing I have never cancelled due to my own sickness. I once had to hire a replacement vocalist (at my own cost) due to the severe laryngitis I contracted, but I still performed the evening on keyboards and led the band as normal.
Do you carry liability insurance?
Yes we do. Most reception venues insist on it from the outside vendors.
Do you take requests? Can you customize your song list for the guests attending our function?
Of course - in fact, we encourage requests! There is nothing more satisfying to us than being able to belt out a request that fills the dance floor. If we don't know a particular request, then we'll at least try to perform something along the same style or from the same artist.
Part of our success comes from having a wide variety of music and the ability to read an audience in order to perform the right songs for the guests attending. Furthermore, we can also customize an evening of themed music if your corporate event has a particular theme or music era associated with it. Please inquire on the various music themes we can support.
How long do you play? How many breaks do you take?
Usually, clients will book a four hour block of time for the dance portion of an evening (e.g. 9pm-1am, 8pm-12am). We prefer to do longer sets to get everyone pumped on the dance floor, and they typically last between 90 -120 minutes in a NON STOP format. "NON STOP" music means that we perform songs seamlessly - one into another so that the dance floor is always moving. No awkward pauses - no idle chatter - just lots of dance music!
One or two (max.) breaks are the norm for the dance portion. The scheduling of your evening will dictate when a break is taken. We can provide recorded music for all breaks.
You are not limited to a four hour block by any means. Music is available through dinner and the cocktail hour if needed. If preferred, the entire band can be hired to perform music for dancing through the dinner hour.
We can customize an evening of music based on your specific requirements.
How does the band dress?
Some events like weddings and fundraising galas require us to dress formally. Others may assume a more business-casual approach (e.g. dress shirt and slacks). Yet other more casual events may prefer us in jeans and loud Hawaiian shirts.
Be ASSURED that the band will be dressed appropriately for your event. We will confirm all of these details when you book an event with us.
Can we get references of past corporate events to see what it’s like to work with you?
Yes. You can also view some letters of reference, some client testimonials and other reviews here.
We still have a few more questions to ask. Can I call you to discuss further questions I may have?
Yes, in fact we encourage and require that you schedule a complimentary telephone consultation so that we can get all your questions answered. Feel free to call Sandy with any questions at 905-562-6683 or email us to discuss your needs.
Relax and deal with experienced, professional musicians who understand the atmosphere you wish to achieve with live music. Here are some of the additional services offered:
Piano Music, Duos and Trios
An elegant touch as background music. We provide combos that are soothing and relaxing during cocktails or dinner. Ask us about any instrumentation ideas you may have.
Acoustic Wedding Ceremonies
Intimate music for an intimate and beautiful occasion. We provide an acoustic guitar/vocalist or keyboard/vocalist performing contemporary love songs for your special day. All songs are lyric appropriate and are available for all types of marriage ceremonies.
Small Group Ensembles
Planning an ice breaker night? Or an event where dancing is not a priority but background music is just too laid back? We have small group ensembles that will work perfectly - performing pop tunes that are very recognizable and anything but boring. Ideal music to kick back, relax and enjoy a drink with new friends.
Theme Night Party Music
Beach Party, Rock and Roll Oldies Party (available with impersonators), R&B Night, 70's night, 80's Night, Hollywood Gala Night, or choose your own theme. We can customize an entire night of great live music to go with it!
