Some commonly asked questions answered by Sandy Vine:

What is the instrumentation of your band?
The band recommended for corporate events, dances and weddings consists of 5 members with the following instrumentation: keyboardist, two guitarists, drummer and female vocalist. Each male band member sings and our female vocalist doubles on auxiliary percussion. If required, we can also add a sax player and/or a Latin percussionist giving you a choice of a 5 to 7 member group.

How long have you been together?
Sandy Vine And The Midnights have been around since 1988. I personally have more than 25 years of professional experience as a musician performing at weddings, dances, corporate events, private parties, nightclubs, theatres and casinos.

What styles of music do you play?
We take pride in being able to provide music for almost every age group at any particular function, so if you are looking for variety, you'll be making an excellent choice. We perform material that is in the Top 40 chart of today, right back to the best dance hits from the 1950's to the 90's. We also perform swing styles and ballroom music where requested. Take a look at our songlists here on this page. They are constantly being updated with new material. If there is something that you require that is not on these particular lists, please ask. We are very experienced and over the years have performed many songs - there may be something that we have done before that may not be on the list.

Do you take requests?
Of course - in fact, we encourage it! There is nothing more satisfying to us than being able to belt out a request that fills the dance floor. If we don't know a particular request, then we'll at least try to perform something along the same style or from the same artist.

How long do you play? How many breaks do you take?
Usually, clients will book a four hour block of time for the dance portion of an evening. (eg. 9pm-1am, 8pm-12am) Let's assume that you hire the band to perform between 9pm and 1 am:

- 9pm-11pm NON STOP set
- 11-11:30 break (we provide background CD music)
- 11:30- 1am NON STOP set

"NON STOP" music means that we perform songs seamlessly- one into another so that the dance floor is always moving. No awkward pauses - no idle chatter - just lots of dance music! You are not limited to a four hour block by any means. Music is available through dinner and the cocktail hour if needed. If preferred, the entire band can be hired to perform music for dancing through the dinner hour. We can customize an evening of music based on your specific requirements.

How does the band dress?
Some events require us to dress in black tie. Others may assume a more business-casual approach (eg. all black suit or black shirt and slacks). Yet other more casual events may prefer us in jeans and loud Hawaiian shirts. Be ASSURED that the band will be dressed appropriately for your event. K&M Productions will confirm all of these details when you book our band with them.

It's not going to be too loud, is it?
One of our strengths is that we don't have to play loud to make it sound great. We carry a state-of-the-art sound system that stresses clarity - not volume. We run it at just the right volume for the dance floor so that guests can "feel" a part of the music, but can still carry a normal conversation at their tables. More often than not, you will tell us to turn up the volume before you have to tell us to turn it down. (That's not to say that we can't crank it up when you need us to...)

What is the next step if we are interested?
Contact K&M Productions so that they can check availability and provide an accurate quote for you regarding your particular event. A contract will be issued for you to sign and a deposit will be remitted to secure the booking on the selected date. Please feel free to contact K&M Productions with ANY questions you may have about how our live music services will help to make your event a success.
