We're fairly eclectic, mowtown, r&b, americana, the band, allmans, isleys, funk, rockabilly, southern rock, B.B., both Elvises. Probably no heavy metal, classical, or opera though. Upbeat for the most part, because it is basically an outdoor party. Jams are fine, but not constantly. Word of warning, since 1/2 of the crowd will be playing in the tournament, the bands we get here do sometimes not get a ton of attention until there's a break in the action.
Begin setup at 2, and be preferably flexible on departure time. Tournament starts at 1pm, and goes 1.5 to 2 hours before a 45-60 minute break, which is the cue for the band's 1st set. 2nd set might not start for an hour or so after that - depends on the number of tourney entrants. Honestly, we usually bribe the band into staying longer.
This is for an outdoor tournament which has become a party - there's about an hour break midway through when we really need a band to keep the crowd occupied, and then it becomes flexible as to when we need more music. Hard to pin down precise timing, but I guarantee there will be plenty of entertaining people-watching for the band so they don't get bored. Will provide cover for the band from rain and/or sun as needed. Really looking for a band to play an hour set starting at ~2:30, then take maybe an hour break (beverages available...), and end with a monster set. Very lively crowd that might offer money for extended play. Any takers?
