Orlando Gatsby Band is the Z Street Speakeasy Band, one of Florida's most prestigious and sought after 20s musical groups. Available from 3 to 12 pieces, this
high energy bands stands out from the rest, because not only do they play authentic, 20s jazz, Gatsby tunes, 30s, and 40s music, but they have the uncanny ability to change it up when "prohibition ends" and transition into Rock, Pop, R&B and Top 40. If you want to hear 20s music and swing all night, they can do that too. The Z Street Speakeasy Band isn't a bar band, but a corporate and private event band that has both male and female vocals, hot horn section and rhythm section. The Female vocalist throws in a few tap dances, and the sax player, Jonathan performs DJ music during band breaks. This plug and play band comes complete with state of the art sound system, stage lighting, dance floor lighting, and can work with your house sound as well. The Z Street Speakeasy Band has opened for Sting, Taylor Swift, and Howie Mandell.
The Z Street Speakeasy Band is a band that is located in Florida and serves not only Orlando and beyond, but bandleader, Mark is here to guide you through your Gatsby, Speakeasy, 1940's, Hollywood Oscars theme event from the very beginning until the last note is played. Here are just a few of the questions that Mark gets asked when new clients inquire about hiring the band, along with his responses, which should help you make a sound decision on hiring entertainment for your private party, corporate event or charity gala.
Question: Where are you located? I see other bands listed on Google that say they are in Florida, but when I contact them, they tell me they are located in another state or another Country.
Answer: We are residents of Orlando Florida. We live in Orlando, and our musicians are professional musicians at the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World. Orlando is our home base.
Question: Why do some bands list themselves on Google as being located in Orlando, but they are actually in another State or Country? Sometimes, heir website doesn't say where they are located at all. It's confusing.
Answer: That's a good question. Many out of state bands, as well as bands located outside of the United State may fly only the band leader into Florida, and then the bandleader will hire local "pick up musicians" (meaning musicians that aren't members of their band; many whom they may have never met or heard before) to perform at their event on the fly. This isn’t a good idea. The band should be a group of musicians that have been playing together on a continual basis. Not random players hired to perform with the band for the first time. The Z Street Speakeasy Band is a group of band members that have been working together for years. They are established team members that are an integral part of the Z Street Gatsby Band family. If we do an out of State gig, the whole band goes with us. We do not use pick up musicians. When inquiring about a band, it's good to know what City, State and Country that they are located in. It should State that clearly on their website.
Question: Is it necessary that the band I hire carry insurance?
Answer: Yes! Any reputable band should carry multi million dollar liability insurance, as most venues require it before the band can perform at the venue. The Z Street Speakeasy Band carries multi million dollar liability insurance.
Question: When I was researching bands to hire, many of them wanted to charge me additional fees for stage lighting, or sound equipment. That seems unfair.
Answer: You are absolutely correct. It is unfair. Be very wary of bands that charge you additional fees for sound or lighting. Reputable bands provide their own sounds and lights. This is a given. The Z Street Band provides Sound, stage lighting, dance floor lighting, and a dedicated microphone for guests for announcements. If a band tries to "upsell you on sound and lights", that is initially a junk fee. A band's responsibility is to provide the client with the full package of sound, lights, and costuming. There should be no additional fees, as the band should never charge a client for something the band is responsible for providing. However, many clients choose to use an independent sound company for a large scale event instead of our equipment, which is fine too. Large scale events may require additional AV, sound and lighting that an independent sound company would provide. The Z Street Speakeasy Band has a great relationship with professional sound companies throughout Florida as well as the United States.
