About - Debbie Boyd Band
What to expect
You can expect your needs to come first with this band; from choosing songs from their playlist (if you wish) to fitting around your plans for the event. They're flexible, friendly and take great care to adapt what they do to make sure the night goes as well as it possibly can! On the day, the band will arrive well in advance; be set up, soundchecked and cleared out of the way before your first guest arrives (weddings can sometimes be the only exception, where the performance area is required for the seating during the wedding meal. In this case, the band will setup as quickly and unobtrusively as possible after your meal and speeches). They're happy to learn your choice of first dance (again for weddings) and will keep the atmosphere going whilst not onstage via either iPod (theirs or yours) or with their in-house fully manned DJ service (please ask for details). All equipment is included (use of either 5kW or 2kW PA systems, which can be amalgamated for larger venues) and they bring atmospheric lighting for both stage and dancefloor (including moonflowers, lasers and stobe effects). They can also provide a hand held radio mic for speeches, if required. You'll never need to worry if they'll play appropriate music for your guests, their repertoire includes a huge range of floor fillers from 7 decades, including lots of current chart hits, and they'll adapt what they play on the night to suit your particular crowd. From country to blues, rock and pop to soul and motown, they've got you covered. And if you need a bit of background jazz as your guests arrive, they can cover that too!
