Q: How do I hear or see the High Society Orchestra?
A:

We can mail you a comprehensive promotional package and we will be happy to meet with you and show you our DVD, which shows the orchestra performing live and at a number of weddings. Also, unlike most orchestras, we encourage you to come see us perform at a wedding. We usually can get permission from the host provided that you dress appropriately and are discreet. Since music is so important at your wedding, we feel it is important that you see any orchestra that you are considering and see how they interact with the guests. This you cannot see on a CD and most orchestra cannot produce live the sound on their CD.

Sound
Q: When do you set up your equipment?
A:

Our technicians arrive at least two hours before your guests to set up the P.A. system, the lighting, the bandstands, etc. If the wedding ceremony is in the same room as the reception, we bring in extra personnel so that we are set up within one hour.

Q: How do you manage volume levels?
A:

Volume is very crucial at any event and we are very conscious of this. We do not want to be known as a loud band. With our state-of-the-art P.A. system, with small amplifiers, with plexi-glass in front of the horn players and with qualified sound engineers, we will keep volume at a reasonable level, emphasizing quality and clarity. Your guests don't want our music hindering their conversation, especially during the dinner. If, during the event, you ever think we are too loud, just let us know and we will accommodate you.

Q: Will High Society Orchestra learn a special song?
A:

Besides our huge repertoire, we will be happy to perform special requests. Our song list represents only a portion of our complete repertoire.

Q: How many breaks do you take?
A:

We take two 15-minute breaks during a standard three-hour performance. However, we much prefer to provide continuous music (no breaks), as this keeps the party happening and there is no lull during band breaks.

Q: Are the band members always the same?
A:

The orchestra maintains the same core of instrumentalists and vocalists. Some faces may change as we augment the core with additional musicians. In the event of a replacement, we always substitute with a musician of equal caliber, ensuring the high standard of excellence for which we are known. After talking with our clients or reading their testimonials, you can rest assured that our expertise will give you a polished, enthusiastic performance.
