1Are Deean & Band also suitable for smaller events?
Deean & Band are suitable for large events as well as for smaller events (from 20 people). We adjust our volume to the respective requirements.
2How much space does Deean need?
So far we have been able to squeeze into every room. The following space is optimal so that we can develop and act:
Deean Special: 2m x 3m
Trio: 3m x 6m
Quartet & Quartet Deluxe: 3m x 7m
3How loud is live music, how loud is live band Deean?
We want to do justice to the event, the audience and the ideas of the organizer, especially in terms of volume. We are happy to adjust our volume to the desired conditions. We very rarely receive feedback asking us to play quieter. Of course, we will then immediately respond to the requests expressed.
4What do I prepare as an organizer for Deean?
As the organizer, you can sit back and relax at your event and enjoy the music. We bring all the necessary equipment for the musical part of your event. Before the event there should be enough space, power supply (220V secured to 10A), and if necessary storage space for the empty transport boxes.
5What equipment is available for my event?
During your event there is a radio microphone for speeches and a CD player with the possibility to play audio CDs, mp3 CDs and USB sticks. Connections, external sources such as lap tops or other playback devices may also be attached to our mixer via chinch or jack.
6When will Deean & Band appear?
Deean & Band generously take an hour to set up. We are happy to appear an hour before the guests arrive, if possible, we will make ourselves comfortable and prepare everything for a successful event.
7How much parking space do Deean & Band need?
The Deean Special formation requires one to two PP, the trio three parking spaces, Quartet and Quartet Deluxe four parking spaces. Our music equipment is spread over several cars because we visit your event from different corners of Switzerland.
8What is the Deean & Band radius of action?
We are traveling all over Europe. For further distances from our home (> 1.5h), we ask for an overnight stay.
9How do I organize catering for Deean & Band?
We are happy if you serve us the same menu as your guests, or order a starter and main course à la carte. We drink mineral and non-carbonated mineral water on stage, some band members appreciate a little white and red wine during the meal.
10What is the payment process for Deean & Band?
You have the option of transferring the fee to an account in advance or paying in cash at the event before the performance. For companies with complex payment systems, we can also issue an invoice on request.
11What happens if a musician fails?
The band is secured with second and third musicians, for Deean there is no substitute. But Deean was already on stage with a fever and can look back on a career with over 1,000 appearances without ever missing an event. In the event of force majeure, the fee would be waived and Deean would be concerned about a replacement. If, contrary to expectations (never happened) a band member fails at short notice, part of the fee will be refunded.
12Are outdoor performances possible?
Yes. Engagements for wedding ceremonies or events such as aperitifs or wedding parties and outdoor company events are possible. We bring a sufficiently powerful amplifier system for outdoor events to make voices and music audible. We are also happy to provide a wireless microphone for the speeches. We have very high-quality equipment that makes the sound of the music sound pleasant and powerful.
13Can songs be added to Deeans repertoire?
Songs from our 'repertoire list' can be requested, spontaneously during the event or in advance. For your special dance or your wedding ceremony, we can also study your favorite song on request. Studying one song is free of charge, we can also study additional songs on request.
There is also the option of mobile voting. We program a special mobile app for your event. During the event, the audience can vote from the prepared playlist and choose their favorite songs.
14Can Deean play the wedding waltz?
Our 'repertoire' has grown in the number of songs in the last few years, deliberately also in the variety of styles. In addition to our own compositions, we play well-known songs, so-called cover songs in various categories: pop, rock, disco, funk, 60's-90's, current charts and standard dances such as cha cha, foxtrot, wiener waltz, english waltz, tango, salsa, samba, bossa, rumba, jive, twist and rock'n roll. We look forward to your wedding dance, if desired your wedding waltz.
15What happens after the contractually agreed time?
After the end of the last song in the official presence time, Deean discusses with the organizer whether additional live music is desired. If this is the case, Deean & Band will be happy to extend the playing time against the agreed surcharge. If this is not the case, Deean & Band start dismantling the instruments. During the dismantling, background music from CD is playing as long as possible.
