When do you set up the stage and sound equipment?
The Steve Edwards Orchestra ensures that all sound checks and set up are completed well in advance of your guests’ arrival. Set up activities occur in accordance with your wishes and the timeline of the event and are communicated with other event-related personnel to ensure these “behind the scenes” activities remain that way!
How do you manage volume levels?
The Steve Edwards Orchestra employs two full-time professional sound engineers who vigilantly monitor the volume of every performance and happily accommodate any requests for adjustments. Striking the right balance between the tendencies of the venue, ambient sounds of the event and the orchestra is an art unto itself. As a musician, Steve Edwards has a vested interest in ensuring that the volume levels are appropriate for the event while preserving the acutely sensitive hearing of the performers.
Will the Steve Edwards Orchestra perform a special musical request?
Sure! If there is a specific song that is not featured in our extensive repertoire, we will accommodate any musical request. Many of the most popular selections performed by the Steve Edwards Orchestra began as special requests that were enthusiastically received!
Can you do special announcements, such as my bridal party’s entrance?
Absolutely. The Steve Edwards Orchestra offers a full Master of Ceremonies service and Mr. Edwards is very experienced serving as a tasteful and unobtrusive MC. Included in the Steve Edwards Orchestra set up are several wireless microphones which are available to you and your guests so that announcements, such as toasts, can be made from any location in the room.
Does the Steve Edwards Orchestra provide continuous music?
Mr. Edwards will be happy to discuss the pros and cons of the continuous music option with you.
