All in Red plays R&B and traditional Jazz (show tunes from the 30's and 40's). We can add tunes from any era with a 4 week lead time. We have quiet dinner (mostly jazz) music as well as fun danceable sets (where the R&B comes in) for later in the evening.
All in Red features recording artist, Sauda Fuller as our lead vocalist, recording artist Kathy Christensen on vocals and keyboards, Wes Gifford on Bass, and Martin Krohne on Guitar. We also use one or more horn players and a drummer/percussionist. We are all seasoned and dependable musicians who take pride in our music and will deliver a solid evening of entertainment. All in Red can also provide our own PA and lighting where needed.
All in Red did such a great job at our Senior Prom last night. All of our senior residents really enjoyed all the music they played. You know they love it when there is a full dance floor!
Thank you so much for really adding that special touch to our event. We loved having you!
Response from All In Red:
Thank you Elizabeth. We had a great time. It really helped that the audience was so enthusiastic! We love to see people dancing and enjoying themselves. Thank you again for letting us be a part of a very successful and wonderful event!
We hired All in Red for our Wedding reception in fall 2013. They did an amazing job meeting all of our musical needs, including instrumental music during dinner, dance music for our guests, and handling their PA system for speeches and announcements. They were very easy to contact, had a large list of songs they could use, and accommodated our requests.
They were very professional but made the event very fun. Our guests loved the variety of music they played and they helped make our wedding reception as perfect as we imagined!
All In Red performed at an outdoor party I attended and they sounded great! They played a variety of music and were very entertaining! 5 stars!!
I attended a summer party where this band performed. They were outstanding! Everyone enjoyed the band! Very entertaining!!!
We had All In Red perform for our 4th of July backyard party and WOW!!!! They were great. Even the neighbors up the street were coming over saying how much they were enjoying hearing them. We all thoroughly enjoyed them....they were definitely a hit. Everyone is already asking when our next party is going to be:-)
Very talented and experienced band that gives you an all around good show of classics and southern spice.

What to Expect
We will arrive about two - three hours before the start of the gig to set up and do a quick sound check. We can provide our own PA System and Lights. We typically arrive in several vehicles and will need parking for those vehicles.
After the sound check, we will need to change clothes and get ready for the first set. As we have both men and women in the group, we need two rooms to change in.
We typically do three 45-50 minute sets with 10-15 minute breaks in between. We can accommodate some requests, but they need to be made at least two weeks before the event. We can accommodate special announcements as needed.
After the last set, we will need to change clothes again and begin breaking down our equipment. This often takes about an hour.
We expect full payment at the end of our last set. Tips will be graciously accepted.
All in Red can provide an evening of entertainment for weddings, corporate events and parties. We cover a variety of musical styles ranging from background dinner music to rocking' dance music. We will make announcements, run raffles, introduce guests and back up singing guests at your event. We can accommodate a limited number of special song requests, given enough advance notice (usually four weeks before your event). Our lineup may change over time, but we will always have some of the best vocalists we can find in the area.
Our past clients have been very happy with us and have left glowing testimonials on our web site (www.allinred.com). At your event, we can provide a complete PA and lighting system if needed. We handle load-in and load-out at each event. Sufficient time is needed for us to set up and complete a sound check at least one hour before your event. That generally means we need to load-in about two hours prior to the event start time.
We also ask for a dressing room so that the musicians can relax and change clothes before the event. There are some space and electrical requirements that can be addressed prior to your event. For a full three to four set event, we ask that the band be provided with a meal prior to or during the event.
Outside events may require either heating units or a shaded area with fans, depending on the weather. We cannot play outside in the rain unprotected. Our ideal stage setup would be an area about 30 feet long by 15 feet deep. We can work within a smaller space is need be, but this must be discussed prior to the engagement.
We will dress appropriately for the event. This can be anything from formal wear to casual attire. Please clarify any special needs at least two weeks prior to the event.
We are all seasoned musicians with decades of experience behind us. We rehearse every week of the year to keep our song list alive and fresh. Some recordings are available on request.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1. CAN I MAKE SPECIAL SONG REQUESTS FOR OUR EVENT?
YES. We ask that you let us know of any special song requests about 4 weeks before the event. We will learn up to 3 special songs for weddings or other special events. We encourage you to choose any special songs from our list. As our list is quite extensive, we do not cover everything at an event. Please let us know of any special requests ahead of time. For special songs not on our list, we ask that you provide an MP3, or CD of the tune(s) so that we can learn them more quickly. We reserve the right to decline any material that we judge to be unsuitable. In such cases, you are welcome to select a substitute.
2. WILL ALL IN RED MAKE SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENTS DURING THE EVENT?
Yes. We will be happy to make any announcement you require during the event. We can also provide a microphone for someone else to make announcements, if you prefer. Please let us know of any special needs in advance.
3. WHAT DOES THE ALL IN RED BAND WEAR AT THE EVENT?
We dress appropriately for the your event. For outdoor concerts or parties, other than formal receptions, the musicians dress in casual slacks and shirts. Our vocalist(s) dress in casual party outfits. For more formal events such as wedding receptions and corporate events the musicians wear black tuxedos and dress shirts. Our vocalist(s) dress in a equally formal attire.
4. DOES ALL IN RED REQUIRE DRESSING ROOMSAT THE EVENT?
Yes. After unloading and setting up our equipment, we prefer to have two separate dressing rooms to prepare for the event. One for men and the other for women. We also prefer it if a shower facility was available for the men. We do understand that this is not always possible and we will appreciate any efforts to provide us with a suitable area for changing clothes.
5. HOW MANY BREAKS DO YOU TAKE DURING AN EVENT?
Breaks between "sets" are important, especially for the vocalists, horn players and our drummer. The physical effort they put into a performance require that they have rest periods. Our "sets" are typically 45 -50 minutes in length, followed by a 15-20 minute break. The length of our contracted performance determines the number of sets we will perform. This can be discussed and worked out ahead of time, if you wish.
6. SHOULD I EXPECT TO FEED THE BAND DURING THE EVENT?
Food becomes an important factor in a good performance. We will be happy to work with you in any way possible to minimize the impact on your event's budget. For events longer than 2 hours, we request that a meal be provided. For events less than 2 hours in duration, this may not be necessary. Please understand that we will arrive as soon as 3-4 hours before the event in order to set-up, perform a sound check and change clothes. It will take us an addition hour or two at the end of the event to dismantle and pack up our equipment. As a result, a 4 hour performance can mean a commitment of up to 10 hours for most members of the band.
7. DO I NEED TO PROVIDE A SOUND SYSTEM FOR THE EVENT?
In most cases, No. We typically provide our own sound and light system. Sometimes, depending on the circumstances and the size of an outdoor venue, we may require you to provide a sound system.
8. HOW MUCH SPACE DO YOU NEED FOR A STAGE?
At a minimum, we require a space that is 20 ft. long by 12 ft. deep (front to back). Our ideal space would be about 30 ft. long by 15 ft. deep. We prefer to set the band up on a raised stage. We realize this is not always possible and can work as well at ground level. If you have any concerns about available floor space, please contact us and let us visit your venue with you to take a look.
9. ARE THERE ANY OTHER EXPENSES I NEED TO CONSIDER?
We are located in Atlanta, Georgia. For events farther than 50 miles from the Atlanta Metro Area, we will request that you cover travel expenses. For trips that take longer than 3 hours, we will also request re-imbursement for lodging expenses. This is another area we will be happy to work with you as much as possible to minimize the impact on your event's budget.
10. HOW IS ALL IN RED COMPENSATED?
We will accept cash or a check made out to: John Manges DBA All in Red For the sake of security and tax records, we prefer to be paid by check. After we reach an agreement for a performance, we will send you a contract. Please sign and date that contract and return it to us with a deposit equal to 10% of the contracted amount. This deposit is Non-Refundable. The balance of our fee is due and payable on the date and time of the contracted event.

Additional Booking Notes
Access to electrical outlets on more than one circuit are requested, as we prefer to isolate our lighting system from our musical amplification. Outlets must be 3 prong, grounded circuits.
We will need room outside of the main stage area for our PA speakers and the lighting systems. Please contact us for more details.
Not all venues require our full PA and lighting system. We would appreciate the opportunity to review the venue prior to the event so that we can make the appropriate decisions regarding how much equipment will be necessary. Venues requiring the use of a larger PA system may incur a small uncharge due to the cost of transporting, setting up and breaking down the equipment.
