* You may peruse our web song list and formulate ALL the music we will play, or let us choose from your styles.
* Optional cocktail or dessert music segment with Fingerstyle Champion Steven King on solo acoustic guitar.
* Your choice of instrumental dance music, atmosphere music, or include female and male vocals with harmony.
* Hire your Steven King reception band and you get a DISCOUNT on your ceremony music.
* Bass Expansion, Steven's invention, allows a sweet bass line in real bass range triggered from the guitar, while Steven simultaneously plays the guitar rhythm AND lead lines. Since you pay for each musician, this saves you the price of a bass player. This is real analog bass sound, not a synthesized keyboard bass, and sounds terrific.
* No travel costs unless we have to take a ferry or a flight.
* Our website lists our prices for you based on hours and number of band members. No surprises, no gauging or hard selling, just honest fair prices.
* With the SWEET MUSIC you get highly trained musicians who play EVERYTHING, with sound that is always set at desirable volumes to enhance the atmosphere you want to create. We can't count how often we see heads turn at dinner tables as amazing music riffs are played, and this can be the ice-breaker topic of conversation for your guests. Your band leader, Steven King, has 22 acclaimed guitar CDs sold worldwide and is one of the few First Place championship winners at Winfield's famous International Fingerstyle Guitar Championship. This level of expertise is rare in the industry. We are not your usual "wedding band", we are the excellence you want at your event. And with Steven's bass expansion, and the band's great horn section & sweet blending vocal harmonies, we can appear as small as a DUO and still sound like a quartet. Add our drummer, our horn section and and our violins and you have our best orchestra, and we have played for movie stars, for Gov. Gary Locke's wedding reception, for Bill Gates and Microsoft events, & at many joyous wedding events. With music from every era, everyone remembers your day!
