FAQs about hiring bands and Encore Entertainment Acts

Which bands are hits at corporate parties?

The Rat Pack and the band etc… make for great corporate gatherings, conferences entertainment, events, and holiday parties. If that’s too much energy for the room, we recommend Cocktail Sax or Candlewood Strings for lighter, jazzier music.

We need a group that can go from high energy to low volume. What should we consider?

Groups like the band etc… can shift gears and read the room as needed. A DJ might also be worth considering if all you need is music. Candlewood Strings and Cocktail Sax can also read the room and create some energy or remain in the background.

How can the band “get” the audience?

All of our acts and musicians, regardless if they’re part of a band or not, are very good at reading a crowd. Most acts and musicians can also emcee the event, or parts of it. This helps them get an even better understanding of the vibe in the room.

We’re interested in a group not listed above for our wedding or party. Is that possible?

We work with other groups as well. Just let us know who you are interested in and we’ll set it up for you. If you see a name or act above that’s listed under “weddings” and you want them for another event, our acts are versatile enough to adapt. We’ve just listed groups above in a helpful way based on the events they most commonly get hired for.

Can you help us find an event venue?

We’ve worked with a lot of venues in the area. While we’re not a true event planning service, we can help refer you to people and places we know are reputable, work hard, and do good work. In the Indianapolis area, we’ve listed places that are great for weddings.

For acts like Jayne Bond and the Pink Martinis, Rat Pack, Blues Brothers, and impersonator bands for hire, can we see some of their past performances?

YouTube is a good source, and we have some private video we can share or point you toward. Because they were taken at events, we don’t publish them here for privacy to the hosts and organizers. Just contact us with questions and we can help.

Ain’t that a kick…watch Dean Martin and Marilyn Monroe perform as part of the Rat Pack
