How We Will Customize Your Wedding
Formal or Casual, 50 to 500 Guests, all announcements or no announcements, background jazz or a full dance orchestra, it’s your choice. DRM has performed hundreds of events and can give you suggestions on how to make your next event a success. We’re always here to help you. The more questions the better. We look forward to learning about your style and help you get a wedding designed around you.
DRM has a huge variety of music for your Ceremony, Cocktails, Dinner and Dancing. We will help you select the perfect songs for each portion of your event. To accommodate your special requests, our wedding music director Jeff Sanders can create arrangements for any song we don’t currently have in our repertoire. This is a free service that other bands may charge extra for. Ask David about our DRM Resource Center. It will help you select your music quickly and easily!
DRM has performed for clients from a variety of ethnicities: Italian, Irish, Polish, Jewish, Russian, Latin, Korean, as well as combinations of cultures. We are familiar with various cultural traditions. For example, we played a 50-minute Hora in Milwaukee. We learned 39 new songs and included Jewish songs for their ceremony and cocktails. We can accommodate any and all family traditions you’d like to include.
Our sound and lighting department is led by our expert sound engineer Jason VanHoose. Jason and our staff will bring the ideal equipment for your particular venue. The sound in some rooms is more challenging than others. We keep track of the layout, loading and acoustics of each room where we perform. It will be set up and tested at least two hours ahead of time and will be constantly monitored throughout the event. Great lighting for your room is also available upon request.
Two Sisters – Amy’s Wedding
Amy’s father called us after we played her wedding to hire us for his other daughter, Lindsay’s wedding for the following May.
They were very different personalities and as a result have very different types of weddings. Both brides were thrilled with their own unique wedding! We know it’s not about this year’s hottest trends. To us, all that counts is what’s authentic to you. We will work with you to make sure your wedding reception will be authentic and everything you envisioned.
Lindsay loved the fact that she had the option of unlimited song requests. She was very creative in her song choices and we loved working with her to customize her wedding to be exactly how she dreamed it would be. We love learning new songs to create extra special moments on your wedding day! She even had us learn a special song that was playing when her and her fiancé first met. She surprised him by serenading him on stage with the band backing her. She had an amazing voice and it actually brought the groom to tears! With DRM, there are no limits to creativity!
