PLANNING A WEDDING is a huge undertaking, but when you work with The Sapsuckers, you can set aside your worries about the entertainment. We're not like most wedding bands, who show up with a 10-page contract and quit after exactly 2.35 hours. We take your day seriously, and we spend hours of advance-time to help you program the event to make sure everything goes off without a hitch (except yours, of course).
Planning: A wedding is a celebration of your vows--but it's also a (very) public performance! That's our specialty, so you can use us to help plan the event. Let's talk early (in person or by phone) to help coordinate the day.
Ceremony music: We have a wide variety of music in our repertoire perfect for processionals, recessionals, and interludes. Or we can learn a piece of music you request. You can listen to some samples of our music on our Audio page.
Background music: Cocktail hour and dinner hour are are made even more memorable with live background music.
Sound system: Providing your own PA can be an expensive extra that many couples don't anticipate. With us, it comes included in the budget--and it's there throughout the night for toasts and speeches. We've even used it for ceremonies and to plug in an iPod.
Square dances: Square dances are unique, fun entertainment that gets all the generations up off their feet and interacting. We work with a network of dance callers (and when necessary, extra musicians) who specialize in working with beginning dancers and who give instruction throughout each dance, so everybody knows exactly what to do.
Budget: We don't have a per-hour or per-event rate, because we scale our budget for each event based on exactly what you need and can afford. We believe that part of the real value we bring to our wedding clients is a bit more special treatment and assistance than most bands. (Of course, we can also just show up to play, if that's all you really need!)
