Many first-time event planners have a lot of questions regarding what is required to set-up and produce entertainment for a large event. Here is a behind the scenes look at a DanceBands production and a little of what goes into a typical set up:
The time-lapse portion of the video takes place in 3-4 hours. That's usually how long it takes to set up for a 7-10 piece party band like the Groove Merchants, Party Crashers, Dance Doctors, Salamanders, etc. Occasionally, Dance Bands produces large-scale, Vegas-style shows with 14-16 performers on stage. Set-up on these typically take a little longer, but not much. Extra sound techs and roadies help to eliminate extra time.
