Sample Sets

20150224_221318A single set is usually 45-60 minutes long. Making music is hard work, so after about an hour the band will usually need a break of 10-15 minutes before they start on the next set.

The band’s break time is a good time to schedule speeches, announcements, or prize draws if you’re having them.
