Simply Amazing!!!

I have had the pleasure of hearing this group sing and perform many a Sunday in our church. They are the kindest most talented group that I have had the pleasure of hearing and enjoying. Allie's voice just stays with you and brings God's prescence into each song she sings! I recommend taking a chance on this band as you will not be disappointed!

Allie and the band are the consummate professionals and some of the most talented musicians in the region. They are one of the tightest bands as well.

Review by Patty R.

The Allie Catz perfomed at Metropolitan National Bank's christmas party in 08. They were awesome. Everyone attending the party was very impressed with their performance. Allie has a wonderful voice and is great at getting people to the dance floor. We have had other bands in the past that were good, but the Allie Catz were by far better. Metropolitan did not have a christmas party this year, is the only reason we did not have them in 09.

Review by Kim N.

There is nothing better than "Allie Catz". Being a Wedding Coordinator hiring "professionals" is what our services are all about. It is important to us to see how the band conducts themselves when not on stage and how they conduct themselves on stage. Allie Catz could not have been better. This was a wedding reception therefore they stayed to themselves and did not mingle before the event started. Their sound is AWESOME!! Allie has the most soulful voice. Everyone at our event spoke very highly of Signature Weddings referring "Allie Catz" "Allie Catz made the reception". I can't wait to work with Allie Catz again.

Overview

In an Allie Catz live performance you can expect to see 6 people on stage, but not exclusivley. At times there may be a female back up singer or an additional utility player, such as trumpet or trombone. The core group of instruments; however, are keyboard, bass, drums, guitar, sax and lead vocal/percussion. We have a standard lighting rig. We usually are expected to play from 2 to 3 hours for anything over that there will be an additional fee. Our lead vocalist and bass player are wirelessly connected to the sound system so you will see them not only on stage but out on the dance floor with your guests as well.

Additional Booking Notes

The stage requirements above are for smaller venues (400 people or less), for bigger shows we prefer sound and lighting to be included. Ask for larger venue tech rider upon discussion of booking.

Thanks so much,
