Most frequent questions and answers
In10City Band typically follows a 4-hour block of time that includes three music sets. Additional time can be contractually added in 30-minute increments if desired.
We only take two short breaks.
Most bands follow the old standard of 3 (1-hour) sets in 4 hours, with 2 (30-minute) breaks. This was an old standard set up by some musician’s union before the invention of the wheel, but most bands around the country still follow it. We don’t.
Instead, we offer 200 minutes of live performance within a 4-hour timeline. This gives you 20 minutes more of live performance. We also shorten our 2 breaks to 20-minutes. Anything less than 20 minutes doesn’t really give your guests time to catch their breath, grab a cocktail and use the restroom. Anything more and you risk losing momentum.
Yes! We are happy to meet all your musical needs in addition to the entertainment of your wedding reception.

Yes. Please, feed your band and crew members a hot meal. Our shows are high intensity (no pun intended) and require fuel for the energy that will be exerted over the 4 hour (or longer if additional time was added) contracted time.
Deciding on the size of your band really depends on quite a few factors, but this is why you can customize In10City Band. We recognize that not every event is the same. We want to adapt to your needs. The number of guests in attendance at your event, the venue size, electrical specifications of the venue, budget and type of ambiance desired will all play a part in the decision of what size band you will want. If you are having trouble deciding, we can help! Just give our sales team a call at (972) 521-6771 and we can help you decide what is best for your event.
For most events, the band dresses in black suits with black or white ties. We do have other color options available and can accommodate attire requests in many cases at no additional charge. If you want themed costuming for an event, we are happy to do that as well. While it’s fun for the band and can create a unique look, there are sometimes expenses that need to be covered in those situations. Our sales staff is happy to give you more details if your event requires specific costuming.
We often have clients that fall in love with certain vocalists or other band members and request their presence on an event. In most cases, we can accommodate requests of this nature with no issue and we are more than happy to discuss member availability, if desired. (REVISE THIS ANSWER)

We can often give you a ‘courtesy hold’ on a specific date for 24-48 hours, but to officially reserve the band, we’ll need a signed contract and ‘retainer’ check.
Currently, we can run up to 9 In10City Band shows simultaneously. Each group has identical sound and lighting production and each plays the full catalog of material represented here on our website. You can check out the musicians by visiting our ‘Band Members’ page. Think of In10City as the show, and the band members as cast. Essentially, we can run up to nine of the same show all in one night with different cast members.
In addition to hiring In10City Band to perform for your event which includes the band members and their equipment and instruments, full sound and stage lighting equipment and setup, you may add additional packages such as uplighting, pin-spot lighting, monogram lighting, cocktail hour music, ceremony music, and more at a discounted rate in comparison to third party production companies. Since we will already be there setting up for your event, we will add these services for a much lower price than our competitors. Please, call us with any questions that you may have or to receive a quote at (972) 521-6771 or email our Director of Sales, CK, at email@example.com for more details.

The sooner the better! We want to make sure we are available for your event and we are on a first come first serve basis. Also, there are a lot of details to plan out to make sure everything goes as desired for your event. However, if the band is available, we are willing to work with you on short notice.
We travel any and everywhere! Obviously, the cost of the band is partially calculated based on distance, any need for airfair, equipment, backline rental on longer distances, and etc. Our production gear is based in the DFW metroplex, and we travel up to 500 miles with our own lighting and sound. If your event is over 500 miles from Dallas, TX, we require flights, hotels and rented sound, lighting, and backline equipment. We are happy to provide you with our travel Rider for review.
We do partner with a very select few bands that we are happy to contract for you in some situations. We are not an ‘agency’, and it is not our business plan to represent a large number of bands. We are a band production company and our business revolves around creating the most entertaining and engaging show possible with our internal staff. However, when we are all booked up, we can often help you find a comparable band of similar style and quality.
The beauty of hiring In10City Band is partially the fact that we are a production company that manages multiple lineups of our band. For us to miss an event would require an extremely unusual situation that would most likely affect a lot more than just the band (i.e. major weather catastrophe). If, for any reason, we were unable to make it to an event, all monies would naturally be refunded as dictated clearly by our signed agreement.
Our band is priced based primarily on size of band, distance travelled, event day and any seasonal discounts that might apply. Sometimes there are additional factors, but they’re less common (i.e. unusually lengthy performances). Due to the nature of our pricing, the cost of the band is not a simple answer that can be given in this format. However, if you’ll call us at (972) 521-6771, and provide one of our of Sales Team members with the city and date of your event, we can give you pricing for different band sizes, provided we’re available on your date.
A 50% retainer fee will be due once you sign the agreement in order to book In10City Band.
The remaining 50% balance along with any additional services (i.e. decorative lighting, ceremony musicians, additional pre-planned overtime etc.) will be due 15 calendar days prior to your event date.
