OUR SERVICES

Much of our success is in our ability to fully service our clients in a way that surpasses our competition. Our goal is to help you create a worry- free and smooth flow to your day and evening. Below are some additional services we offer to enhance your experience, as well as some information regarding Art Company FAQ’s. We look forward to planning with you!
 


Flexibility with Band size

Regardless of the size of the Band / Orchestra the integrity of our music is guaranteed. Our showcase of entertainment is our 12 piece Orchestra. However, we also book in any number of pieces you desire from 4 to 16 members to accommodate a smaller venue, budget or intimate gathering.

Consultation & Creation Process

Can we all sit down together to plan out the evening’s festivities? We hope so! We rely on the planning process to get to know you. Feel free to call us at anytime throughout your planning to create and bounce ideas around. Art Company is unique in that we are completely accessible to you.

Early Set up of Equipment

Your stage is set, the lighting positioned, and a sound check has been run before your guests enter the room. While this may seem logical to you, most bands and orchestras agree to be set up only one hour before their contracted start time! We believe this leaves too much preparation to the last minute. The key to a smooth evening begins by starting preparations early at the venue. We choose not to charge for this additional time spent. We believe this service contributes to our standards of excellence. 

Please keep in mind it takes our crew 3 hours to set up and a full sound check.

Professional Sound Engineers

Venues range from intimate settings to large ballrooms, and have different acoustics. Art Company Orchestra is accompanied by at least one professional sound engineer on every performance. Our professional sound engineers ensure the proper volume and mix all evening, from the dinner set to the final number.

Cutting Edge Equipment

Art Company Orchestra uses only the best in sound equipment with Bose technology which boasts the highest quality sound with a sleek size and design. Our high quality wireless microphones allow us to move about your crowd!
