FAQ

Do you provide your own PA?

We provide all of our own audio equipment and setup. You are free to use our microphones for speeches or announcements.

Do you perform outside?

Yes, we love performing outside but we require cover and a flat, hard, dry surface to play on. Instruments don’t sound as nice when wet (trust us!) and electrical cords mixed with water can be a fire hazard. Also, heat can damage instruments, so please keep this in mind when placing your band and have a backup plan just in case! Since our instruments are acoustic, we do not play in cold conditions below 55 degrees.

Do you travel?

Of course! We love to travel! We do charge extra for the time depending on the location and you’ll need to cover transportation and accommodation for all band members. Ask us for a quote based on the specifics of your event.

PS - if drive is within 90 miles, it’s included at no added charge.

Will you learn a new song for us?

Of course! Just make sure you give us enough notice of your special request so the the band has time to learn your song.

Does the band provide a sound system?

Yes! We look after everything music-related.

Can we use your equipment for speeches?

Yes! The mic and sound system is already hooked up, so we’re happy to provide a mic for your officiant, speeches, and any other announcements. Please, no “drop the mic” moments! This equipment is expensive and, contrary to popular belief, it does break when dropped - which you definitely don’t want to risk right before your reception. We do charge for any damaged sound equipment that may come as a result of improper use by you or your guests.

Can you MC my event?

Of course! Two weeks before your wedding, we’ll go through all the details, including how to properly pronounce everyones name.

Who will be my contact the day of?

Your contact will be the person you signed a contract with. The lead on your event will also be able to answer any questions your wedding planner or venue manager may have on the night.

How much do we pay and when?

When you book Cold City Heat, you’ll pay a 50% non-refundable deposit to secure your date. The remaining amount is due the day of your event before we play.

What does the band require on the night?

Water (to stay hydrated), electrical power (to fuel our instruments!), and a covered space on a flat, hard, dry surface to play. We do not require a stage! If you want to feed us, we would love you for it but it is not required for performances less than 2 hours.
