Frequently Asked Questions About Hiring Our Swing Band

Can we chose all of the songs for the set list?
We have years of expertise developing set lists designed to please your audience. We know which songs go down well live and the songs that don’t. We take into account style, tempos and general flow of the whole evening to produce a set list that we know will work all night long. However, if you like you can select the songs you line from our extensive repertory and we will be more than happy to play the songs you select.
Can we come see the band live?
Absolutely! Come join us for one of our shows. Occasionally, some of our shows are for private events and so this may not possible. Our video page has live recordings of the whole band playing together. There are no overdubs or extra instruments added, what you hear is what you will get. To see us live please be sure to join our mailing list so we can let you know about our upcoming shows.
What do the musicians need?
Although the band comes completely self-contained, there are certain things that we will need. Namely, the band will require 15 chairs, an appropriate area to perform, a safe power supply, an appropriate room to get changed and store gear in and enough time to set up.
How long does it take to set up?
The band is pretty self-contained and does not require much time for set up. We can be ready in 1 hour from entering a room for set up to being ready to perform. Please allow time for this in your plans.
What geographical areas do you cover?
The Ambassadors Band is based in The Treasure Coast in South Florida but we are more happy to travel anywhere in Florida or the world for that matter to perform at your event.
How long do you play for?
The band usually play two 1 hour long sets, however we are happy to split this time over 3 sets or even do 1 longer set if required. We can also play background music through our professional sound system before, in-between and after our sets.
Do we need to feed the band?
Sure, we love to be fed. This is not a requirement but often we travel for many hours to reach a venue, and once at the venue (often isolated) we are all go setting up and getting ready to play. The food doesn’t have to be anything special but it really is greatly appreciated by the band.
How much does the band cost?
Please refer to our pricing section above. Occasionally, the prices may vary depending on the event location and the exact service required, times required and the audience numbers. For larger events we source a larger sound system that ensures the highest quality of sound. This is an area that is often overlooked by some bands that opt to bring smaller budget systems.
Will the band sound the same as in the videos?
We have built our reputation on providing the highest quality entertainment of swing music over the past 10 years. Expect nothing less than the highest quality of professional musicians and singers to feature in our band. When booking The Ambassadors you can rest assured that the quality of musicianship and entertainment that you will receive will be of the highest professional standard, providing you with a show that you will never forget!
