Weddings/ Parties
.
1 To ensure your wedding or party with Banshee runs smoothly here are a few notes you may find useful for your preparations.
.
2 It takes Banshee approx 1 hour to set up, sound check and tune up, it is better for Banshee to do this before your guests arrive please ensure they are able to access the venue in sufficient time to do this.
.
3 Physical access to the playing area is also important speakers and double bass are quite bulky please ensure access points are not blocked and as close to the playing area as possible.
.
4 Banshee use one vehicle ( personnel carrier size) please reserve a parking space as near to the  access point to the playing area as possible.
.
5 Banshee will allow their PA to be used to play background music which can be CDs provided by yourself or we have a small number of popular CDs to suit most tastes.
.
6 Banshee will also allow their PA and Microphones to be used for after dinner speeches or other public address issues at the event.
.
  1. 7 Banshee do not require a great deal of space to set up in  ( we have no drum kit)  and power points in the prescribed area are best for safety.
Some illumination in this area is preferred which, if possible, should be independent to the main hall lighting.
.
8 A raised area or stage is preferable.
.
9 If you are utilising the services of a disco please put Banshee on before the disco. Experience tells us this works best with audiences.
.
10 Advice your guests that you want them to participate in the dances and be prepared to set the example.
.
11 Create a reasonable size area for dancing.  Some dances require columns of up to eight dancers to move up and down the area.
.
12 Dim the lighting in the hall people are less inhibited when not in bright lights. ( you may consider this to be a job for the best man)
.
13 If possible keep the dancing in the same area as the bar this improves the atmosphere and dancing is thirsty work.
.
14 If required we can play dances for children only.
.
15 We will play a few waltzes and slower numbers during the evening for more mature guests.
.
16 Banshee will need a short break for refreshments.
.
17 Allow time for your audience to have a buffet (if one is provided) this is another good time for background music and delivering messages. Half an hour is usually sufficient.
.
We 18 We enjoy people getting up and playing with us if you have talented guests who sing or play an instrument they are welcome to join in, this often enhances the enjoyment of the occasion.
.
19 Banshee will fit the volume of the music to your requirements.
.
20 Banshee prefer payment in cash at the event (another job for the best man ?)
.
21 It will take Banshee approx 45 minutes to pack up and leave the premises please allow for this when booking your venue. Some venues have very strict closing times.
.
IT 22 ITS YOUR PARTY ;  Banshee  will do all we can to comply with your wishes  to make your event a unique and enjoyable occasion for you and your guests.
