The Headliners Band – Here are some answers to the most frequently asked questions. We love speaking with our clients in person, so please feel free to call or email regarding any questions or special circumstances (772) 781-7415.
WHAT TYPE OF EVENTS ARE YOU AVAILABLE FOR?
ARE YOU AVAILABLE AS A SMALLER 5 – 8 PIECE GROUP?
No, and it really wouldn’t be the same product with a smaller configuration. Please do call or email us as we can happily refer the top smaller groups to you. Beware of groups that offer themselves in many configurations such as a 3 to 13 piece group, as these are most likely agencies that may simply have a database of musicians that they piece together to suit any size desired. The Headliners Band ™ is a set group, and always the same highly talented and very specialized performers as seen in our demo video. There is a great benefit to having a solid group of the same performers in that these types of groups are much more polished and rehearsed than groups that are simply pieced together. For our clients this means seamless non-stop transitions in-between songs, as well as a much higher caliber performance musically as well as visually.
HOW MUCH POWER DO YOU REQUIRE?
WHAT DO YOU WEAR?
Unless otherwise instructed, we always dress formally in modern fitted suits, ties, and jackets, with our female vocalists in formal gowns. Our front vocalists will sometimes do a quick wardrobe change during the dinner segment, and dress more for fun after dinner. For corporate events we dress for fun, while still being formal. We are often asked to dress similar to the look in some of our videos and are certainly happy to comply.

We can add additional members such as our Latin male vocalist/percussionist as seen on the “Latin Mix” segment of our on line video.

READY FOR A SECRET?
There are venues (some very well known) that charge their vendors either a yearly flat fee, or a percentage per event to be included on the “preferred vendor” list. Oftentimes in order to keep this system in place, they will only allow only a handful of agencies access to the list, thereby channeling every event through this small group of agencies who are willing to play ball with the venue. The agent then pays a percentage back to the venue in return for having a “lock” on the venue. This means that the client is now paying an agent possibly 30-50%, in order for the agent to receive his commission, and then the agent will pay 10-20% back to the venue! In addition, there may be tax generated in the process on a service that typically wouldn’t be taxable. Be especially suspicious if a venue will only allow you to use a vendor from their list. This practice is illegal and unethical and should be reported to the Florida Department of State (850) 245-6500.
HELP US DO A BETTER JOB FOR YOU
ACCESS TO THE VENUE, BALLROOM, AND STAGE
This seems obvious enough and typically isn’t an issue, however we have encountered venues where access to the entire room is blocked off or the stage is packed with chairs, tables, as well as other vendor’s items. This usually occurs only when the ceremony is taking place in a portion of the same ballroom, and then the venue is turning over the room in order to use the ceremony area once the ceremony is over. This is just fine, as long as they have our stage in place and we have access to the stage to set up.
AVOID OVERCOMPLICATED PLANNING
AVOID MICRO-MANAGING THE BAND OR PLAYLIST
