Q: I have looked at several other larger bands 9,10,12 piece. And several other smaller bands 3, 4, 5 piece. What is the difference and does size matter
A: Yes the size of the band matters . Anything smaller than Irresistible and you are giving up important instrumentation or vocals. Larger bands have the instrumentation but also come with the frustrations of accommodating lots of people and equipment. IG Band has 7 members but all of us sing and play! So you would really need to compare us to a 12 piece with 6 lead vocalists to have an even comparison. We find that a 7 piece band is way easier to accommodate at most venues than a 10 or 12 piece. Large bands need huge amounts of stage space and equal amounts of dressing room which most regular sized venues have a hard time providing! A giant band may mean a giant headache! A smaller band means giving up cool things like a horn section
Helpful Hint: When booking a band make sure the video that you see is actually what is showing up to the event. We see lots of band videos who have a big horn section, dancers, huge stage show, maybe a choir and orchestra on their video but then show up as a 7 piece without the bells and whistles! Those are extra! Irresistible Groove’s video is us on stage doing what we do, no helicopters or stunt doubles just 7 of the baddest musicians around doing what they love to do!! Here is a list of what we bring to every show!
Full Rhythm Section (Bass, Guitar, Drums, Keys)
Horn Section (and Saxophone)
Male Lead Vocalists (don’t forget all the members in the band sing)
Q: What will the band staging look like at my event ? I don’t have a huge space to fit a band can you make that work?
A: Absolutely that’s one great thing about us , flexibility !! We can fit in most spaces with as little foot print as 12x16 . We keep the amount of equipment on stage to almost zero so that we can fit anywhere ! We also have no problem filling up a stage 2 times that size as well ,so the choice is yours .
Q: Your song list is very expansive and has a lot of music I wouldn’t prefer at my event , how do I know you wont be performing these songs?
A: We work with you months in advance to get your preferences on music , we are the best at choosing appropriate music for every event . Just because we can play it doesn’t mean we would
Q: I have a wedding planner , have you worked with one ?
A: Absolutely we have worked with hundreds of the best planners in the country on some of the most prestigious events . We have a great track record at making planners very happy , we are very easy to work with !
Q: I don’t have a planner is that a problem ?
A: Wedding planners can be helpful but if you don’t have one we can work with you prior to your event to get a detailed timeline then work with your event staff to make the event run smoothly .
Q: I hate when bands break up the fun with long breaks is that necessary ?
A: Absolutely Not !! Groove 5 is famous for non stop 3 hr shows as well as being able to perform a 4 hr show with only 1 20 minute break ! This is standard at every IGB show :)
