BACKGROUND

Collectively, we have over 300 years experience as professional musicians. "Professional" means "paid." Some of us were members of the American Federation of Musicians due to the venues we played or the rules of the band.

Our music genres covered all "popular" styles... the many styles of "rock," country, pop-country, California, Nashville, R&B, Contemporary Christian, British Invasion, Tex Mex, Jazz, Folk Pop, Blues, Dylan, Holly, The Beatles and other styles, whatever it's named.

Our gigs were for listening, dancing, eating or entertainment shows.

All of us met and played together in The Beatlemaniacs Club of The Villages.

OUR APPEARANCES

Our standard appearances are for 2-hour or 3-hour performing. Two-hour includes two sets and one break of about 15 minutes. Three-hour includes three sets and two breaks of 15 minutes each.

TIME

Prior to the start of playing, we need one full hour for set-up and sound-check.

At the conclusion of the performance period, we need no less than 45 minutes to pack up and leave the premises.

EQUIPMENT

We bring all the musical instruments, amplifiers, electric power hook-up cabling, microphones and instruments, full audio mixing system, and a PA system capable of covering an audience of between 400 and 500 people, in either table or theater seating. All we need at the facility is at least two 120-volt AC outlets, each on a separate circuit breaker, no less than 15 amps each, into which we plug our AC power distribution cables.
