For cocktail and dinner the band plays lower volume acoustic and instrumental songs. When it's party time, the group seamlessly segues, transitions, and medleys through a barrage of up-tempo dance hits. Engaging the audience, the band never misses a beat, and provides non-stop music throughout the sets. Performing one power house sing-a-long after another, Drywater encourages audience participation. When appropriate, slow and mid-tempo songs are mixed in.
The Drywater Band's production includes premium sound reinforcement, wireless microphones, energy efficient LED stage wash lighting, and break music service, and is covered under the band's $1,000,000 liability insurance policy. Drywater's self-contained production can accommodate nearly any situation from an intimate 50 person dinner in a small banquet room to a 1500 person corporate event in a 30,000 sq. ft. ballroom.
In addition to providing high-energy dance bands for corporate events, Drywater can provide professional dancers, instructors, and interactive line dance instruction. The group is also well adept at performing "house band" duties at corporate awards ceremonies and presentations. Technical directors can rest assured knowing that the band is experienced with "stings", "in-ear monitors", "talk-back mics", "reprisals", "cues", and "stem mixes".
