What to Expect
Typical Gig Duration: 30 - 240 minutes
Sarah's Swing Set swings! Our audiences can expect to tap their feet or perhaps leap to them and dance!
Robert and Sarah are both experienced MCs who are extremely audience friendly. Sarah has even been known to get out on the dance floor with guests! All that being said, we're a class act, so we won't be making anyone uncomfortable- if your audience doesn't want to participate, they don't have to!
Jazz aficionados who like to sit and listen will also be entertained by virtuosic vibraphone, bass, drums, and vocals!
Sarah's Swing Set generally provides sound and amplification equipment, and as such we only need power near the performance area. Four 120V (household) outlets are sufficient.
Our performance area is ideally 20' wide by 12-15' deep, and covered if it's an outdoor performance.
