For cocktail and dinner the band plays lower volume slow and mid tempo 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 members encourage audience participation and regularly join guests on the dancefloor during the show.
The Drywater Band's production includes wireless mixing, state-of-the-art sound reinforcement, wireless microphones, in-ear monitors, 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.
