Q: I'm excited that I booked your band and my event is in six months. Should I start planning details now? A: Not quite yet. Parties change a lot during the months leading up to the big date so we will contact you about one month before, when your plans have gelled.
Q: Should I give THE TIME OF YOUR LIFE a play list or a don't-play list for my event? A: We welcome your input on the demographics of your crowd and the types of music you think the audience will like. We also want to hear about any special requests, first dance, etc. We do not need a play list though. Songs are the "tools" of our job and just like you would not tell a plumber which tools to use, it's best to let us read your crowd and pick the songs that will make the party a success. Ultimately, a successful event is your goal. If there are some particular songs you don't like, make them "do not play unless specifically requested".
