Frequently Asked Questions
What style of music do you play?
It depends on the venue and occasion. We perform as an acoustic duo, trio, or as a full band. Allison and Scott have been performing as an acoustic duo in restaurants, small clubs, coffee houses, etc. We often perform for weddings, reunions, business conventions, and personal parties. The full band performs hits from Oldies to Classic Rock, Classic and modern Country, Rockabilly, Folk, Blues, and Gospel. Some of the bands we cover are Fleetwood Mac, the Eagles, Johnny Cash, Elvis, Bill Haley & the Comets, Carl Perkins, Bob Dylan, CCR, Nina Simone, Willie Nelson, Miranda Lambert, etc. We have hundreds of songs in our playlist and can play for hours without repeating songs.
What do you charge?
To a certain degree this will depend on several factors such as whether you are wanting a duo/trio or full band; the distance we will be traveling; the number of hours; whether it is a charity/community event or a private event. Charges for regular/repeating gigs at restaurants/lounges also are negotiable with food/drink and tips. Please share with us the event, your venue, occasion, music preference, and whether you are seeking the duo/trio or full band to get a specific price; we want to make it possible to cover your needs! We do donate or discount fees for charities and community benefits. Generally, the duo charge is $100.00 an hour with a two hour minimum for private events. We certainly will try to do all we can to make your event possible with your budget, please contact us with as many specifics as you can. Our goal is to make your event happen for you and it is our privilege to share in the event you've planned.
How early should we contact you to book an event
We are generally booked anywhere from a month to days ahead. Typically, our schedule is full for any given month within the first 10 days but there is always a chance that an opening is still available. It is best to book very early, check our online schedule, and contact us at the soonest available time. We do not post the exact dates for the private events on our schedule so it is best to contact us as soon as you have an idea of your date.

We can provide an easy listening experience, a sing along, toe tapping, or rockabilly rocking experience. When dancing is the primary interest, we highly recommend making sure we fit your "dancing" style of music. Our oldies/rockabilly set will get people dancing, whether duo or full band, however the occasion and needs of your event should be discussed.
