Questions about your marching band

Got a questions? We’re here to answer! If you don’t see your question here, drop us a line on our Contact Page.

What happens if it rains/wet-weather? Am I entitled to a refund?
  • In general, light rain is not an issue. Our instruments are designed for outdoor use and we’ll always do everything we can to make sure a gig goes ahead. We LOVE playing music and would always rather play than cancel, but if rain is moderate or heavy it is up to the gig lead to make a call RE the safety of the instruments / band.
  • Our best advice is to have a Plan B: Can’t do the march you were planning? No worries, have us play as guest arrive under cover. 
  • Know that the rains are coming but still need us to perform away from the venue? Give us plenty of warning and set up an outdoor umbrella to perform under – we’re here to make it work. 
  • We’re here to be flexible and work with you, but if it all goes awry cancellation policies apply. 
What will the band wear?
  • Our base outfits are “performance blacks”” black pants, black t-shirt + our instruments –
  • or “colours”: crazy fun fluro stuff. 
  • Marching Band Jackets can also be worn & arranged ($20 + GST pp Dry-Cleaning Fee applies)
  • Branding is something we love helping with. Please feel free to discuss this with us
What elements are usually in the band?
100% fun vibes are in the marching band!! We’ll always make it awesome, but in general….
  • 3 piece:  Drums, Baritone Sax, Trumpet
  • 4 piece: Drums, Baritone Sax, Trumpet, Tenor or Alto Sax
  • 5 piece: Drums, Baritone Sax, Trumpet, Tenor and Alto Sax
  • 6, 7, 8 + etc:  3 x Drums, Baritone Sax, Trumpet, Tenor or Alto Sax + whatever our decides is best.
  • Trust us – if it’s 7 or above, it will be absolutely amazing whatever the instrumentation is. 
  • If you have a specific need / goal RE instrumentation, please let us know. We’ll be able to make it work
Can we request custom songs? Arrangement Fees etc?

Of course! We love helping out client’s dreams come true. We can custom arrange most songs for $250 + GST per song. Our musical director – is an absolute wizard and we can (almost) guarantee you’ll love it. Whatever the tune, we can probably find a way to make it work. 

Do we need a permit if walking in the public?
  • It depends. In general, no. If it is a private event walking down a street with some friends rocking out, you’re probably OK without one. Most private events are OK. 
  • Some public spaces run into issues – such as fed square or Southbank – and some public events run into issues as well. Most of the time at fed square, if you need a permit you’ll probably know in advance. If you don’t think you do, you’re probably OK. 
  • We’ll always follow the direction of our client and pass responsibility onto the client. We’ll assume you have permission for us to perform.

Pleasure of having Nathan DJ and MC at our wedding. Nathan was incredibly professional throughout the entire process, from our initial consultation to the day of our wedding.
