Live Performance Requirements:

Outdoor events: 

Shelter from direct sunlight or rain is required. This may mean finding a location that has shade, eg. shade from trees, a veranda close to the ceremony or a gazebo. A large secure umbrella is also a popular solution.

If raining an alternate location for the event is required. Please note the alternate back up inclement weather location must be  organised to fit within the same booked time.

Singer Prices:

Please note extra fees will apply for including a singer. Prices may vary depending on which singer you are interested in booking and whether they are required to bring their own PA. Extra prices may also occur if a singer is required to learn a new song.

Jazz/Pop Amplification:

Amplification is usually recommended for events that have over 130 guests, however double bass and guitar will almost always need some amplification. Stringspace can provide their own jazz/pop band amplification for events with up to 250 guests. Please note all venues must have access to electrical outlets. Singers may require professional AV.

PA System:

Most venues will have a PA system for dealing with sound requirements. They’ll also usually have an AV person who is on-site to operate the desk/sound etc. It’s still best to double check this with your venue.

Instrumentation:

Stringspace draws on professional jazz musicians that perform on the following instruments: piano/keyboard, bass, drums, guitar & saxophone.

Dancing:

We recommend booking the jazz/pop quartet or quintet for dancing (so that you include both drums and bass). We also recommend considering a PA system.

Set up:

Stringspace jazz/pop band musicians aim to be set up & ready to perform by 30 minutes prior to the start of your event.

Extra info:

For Stringspace band bookings please provide refreshments for events longer than 1.5 hours and a meal for events that are 3+ hours. Our band musicians require 1 x 10 – 15 minute break each hour for all bookings that are longer than 1.5 hours.
