Resonate150 provides acoustic instrumental music played on marimba, hammered dulcimer, and percussion. With no electricity required and no vocals to project we can be booked as a duo or solo. We're just as comfy playing up front or in the background so read on to learn more!
Sarah and Doug are fantastic! We were thrilled with their performance! Look forward to working with them again!
Response from Resonate150:
Thank you so much! We enjoyed playing for your guests and your charming store!
Asked for drum line performance for fun neighborhood event and they nailed it!! They are outgoing and willing to go the extra mile to fulfill request!! They were fabulous!!
What to Expect
You can expect quality music that charms and inspires your audience. We are happy to speak a little in between our songs or simply be in the background to create the right mood. We are very flexible and are happy to do multiple sets or just one song if you need something specific. Currently our entire set list runs about 1 hour (but if you have a revolving crowd we can repeat it as many times as needed). Long-distance events or special requests don't scare us but we will be factoring those into the estimate as travel and learning new music can be costly. Contact us and we'll discuss the vision for your event to ensure proper mood, attire, and overall performance!
We are a married couple from central Indiana with background as collegiate percussionists. After Sarah was able to get her own marimba (a large percussion instrument that looks like an oversized xylophone but sounds deeper and more mello) we formed Resonate150. Doug plays cajon (a wooden box that makes sounds like a drumset - but softer!) and other various percussion that adds texture to the music. Sarah also added hammered dulcimer recently for even more color! Look for our website at the top to learn even more about us!
Additional Booking Notes
Currently we are 100% acoustic - no electricity needed (except enough light to see our instruments!) We don't own a PA system but are happy to use venue-provided equipment if amplification is needed.
Due to the size of the marimba and hammered dulcimer we need to ensure the stage or performance area is large enough. The minimum amount of space we need reserved for set up is:
For duo: side-to-side 20ft; front-to-back 10ft
For solo marimba & hammered dulcimer: side-to-side 15ft; front-to-back 6ft
We usually disassemble the marimba and can fit through normal doorways. Set-up and tear-down require about an hour each. Please let us know if your venue has special considerations like narrow stairways, outdoors, etc.
**Please note: outdoor settings are seasonal and must be clearly stated by the client at the time of booking. Due to the nature of the instruments we cannot play outdoors in cold or wet weather and certain instruments cannot be in direct sunlight (cover must be available). We reserve the right to decline an outdoor setting if we feel that the instruments are at risk.
