Are you guys one of those big entertainment agency's?

We are not an agency. We are a band. We've spent years crafting our sound. What you see and hear on the website is what you can expect.

So what do you play?

From ‘Twist and Shout’ to ‘24k Magic’, Business Time plays everything from the 50’s, to something that came out 50 minutes ago. Rock, Pop, R&B, Swing...if it makes you dance, we play it. Check out our songs page for more info.

How is Business Time different?

We will provide you with the perfect soundtrack for your wedding; you expect this. But we will also work tirelessly to ensure that your entire day is flawless. We do this by coordinating with all of your other vendors, working directly with your planner, and making all of those special moments count. We also do not employ a booking agent or management company so that we have total control over our operations and provide you the best quality services at a polite price.

So, how much?

Two sheep, a goat, and three bricks usually covers everything. Or a million dollars. Just kidding! Not even close. Planning something small and intimate? Jumping on a private jet to Palau to tie the knot? Shoot us a message detailing your event, and we’ll work out a price that fits! We're very budget conscious; we offer competitive pricing and various options to accommodate your entertainment needs. Unless of course, you want to pay us a million dollars...that's cool too.

How far do you travel?

There is no limit to how far we’ll travel…except for Siberia. Well, okay, we’ll play in Siberia.

How long can you play for?

We typically offer 3-4 hours of music, but we can play as long as you want to party!

Does Business Time play during wedding ceremonies?

Yes. If you want to walk down the aisle to a song that’s special to you, we’ll make it happen.

Do you take requests? Can you play our wedding song?

Absolutely. Let us know in advance, and we’ll play it.

Can you not play the chicken dance?

It’d be our pleasure not to play the chicken dance. In fact, you can let us know every single song that you don’t want to hear, and we’ll make sure it’s not played. We don't play any of that kind of stuff anyway, so you're in the clear.

Will I have to provide any equipment for the band?

We have state of the art sound and lighting equipment. All you’ll have to provide is easy access to electrical power, and a crowd. We’ll take care of the rest.

Do you offer DJ services?

Yes. We can structure the entertainment for the evening however you’d like. We can start the night with a DJ set, and then bring in the band. We will also keep plenty of music playing during our short set breaks. Just because the band stops playing doesn’t mean the party stops!

How far in advance should I book you?

You can book us as soon as you have the idea! We book far in advance, so the sooner the better.

Does the band have liability insurance?

Heck yeah we do! If your venue requires a certificate, we’d be more than happy to provide one.

I totally want to ‘like’ you guys on Facebook! Where can I do that?

You should totally do that. Our Facebook address is:  www.facebook.com/businesstimeentertainment

Have you ever heard that song by Flight of the Conchords?

Never heard of 'em. Oh wait! You mean that song Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymnoceros?
